Hi Shane
The track is possible, but there is a fee payable at to pass through Mulgaria Station.

Cheers

Yes I took my small off road caravan through there a few years ago ,
but it might be best if you ask the station owner that question .
The Mobil Service Station in Andamooka can give you the phone number if you need it

Hi Shane,
We were in Andamooka for about 8 months and did that track several times last year. It is a reasonable track although can be hard to find in places after a dust storm. We towed our camper through there without any hassle, dropped tyre pressure to 25 psi. The fee was $25 to pass through. Mulgaria appreciates a call when going through. I would say it's worth a trip through there. It is a pretty easy drive for anyone with some knowledge of sand driving, certainly not hard. An amazing area through there, you will love it, hope you have fun.

Yes, you can take an off road van thru there.

Tyre pressures are important and scan your radio for other track users.

Some of the twisty parts through the dunes need to be taken at a fair pace so being aware of other vehicles is very important. Not a good place to have a head on.

Is it point to point or can you camp on the way?

Plenty of flat areas between the dunes to camp in.
