Hi all..we're heading up through the centre next year..and will be stopping at either Kulgera or Erldunda...wanting to know from those of you who've been up that way...is there anything that is a "must see" at either place...or is it just a case of using either as an overnight stop...getting up and get going the next day...

thanks in advance

Lyn

Hi Lyn,

We will be stopping at Kulgera for two nights on our journey. The reason we are staying two nights is so that we can do a day trip out to Lambert's Centre of Australia and Finke.

We will be coming from Curtin Springs via a part of the Old Gunbarrel Hwy that runs along the NT/SA border, south of Curtin Springs.

I will let you know facilities, value etc when we return mid October.

Only 3 more sleeps!!!!!

CheersJust Do It!

Hi Lyn,

Finding it difficult to get to sleep, and even harder then to wake up in the morning. Still worrying about what I have forgotten to include in things to take.

You are right Lyn,

However last time I did that it took two expensive purchases in outback NSW to get what we had left behind.

Then again, why worry?]

Hello Mrs Al,

Both these places are just Roadhouses with facilities and not really exciting unless you like watching Britz Rentals and Roadtrains pull in an out. And everything is mega expensive but that is the way of the Outback. You can leave your van at Kulgera and drive out to the Lambert Centre which is recognised as the Geo-? Centre of Australia.
Erldunda lies at the junction of the Lasseter Highway(to Ayers Rock etc) and the Stuart Highway. There is a bush campsite on the side of the road 32km further north on the left. There is also a water tank. This is the only one of three rest stops between Border and Alice Springs.

Don't forget to turn off on the Ernest Giles Hwy to visit the Henbury Meteorite Craters. There is a camping ground as well but not much shade. There is also a rest stop on the banks of the Finke River near Henbury Station.

Further north is the Camel farm at Stuarts Wells where you may ride a camel etc. Jim's place has cold beers and if Jim is there have a chat, he is an eccentric character.

Rainbow Valley is a must along the way and you should be able to take your van in quite close to the bluff.

Cheers,

Willie

I spent a few days at Kulgera in 2000 waiting for a water pump to be delivered up from Adelaide - pleasant spot for one night.
