Information

Madigan’s Camp sites are references to explorer and geologist Cecil Thomas Madigan who, leading a party of nine men made an epic crossing of the North Simpson Desert, by camels, in 1939. Madigan took 35 days to make his west/east crossing.

Madigan's Camp sites were all marked with small plaques on yellow painted star pickets in 1994 by Owen Correa Outback Expeditions. These day's 4WD explorers have begun to retrace Madigan's route of this 1939 expedition - thereby following Madigan's Line. It's is done from west to east due to the steep eastern sides of the dunes until you get to about Camp 15, which is on the Hay River Track.

Note that the Madigan Camps are not necessarily indicative of good camp sites for travellers, but are historical points from C.T. Madigan 1939 Expedition.

***Camps 3,4, & 5 are on aboriginal land (Native Title Determination DCD 2018/002 registered 31st May, 2018) and permits to access them are not being granted. ****

From here, you must proceed to camp 6, being sure to avoid entering aboriginal land.
