McElholum road trip - up the Centre 2012 travel blog

View of Canyon from our camp site

Couldn't decide on which route to take. Decision between 150km on Mereenie loop road, potentially very rough road where reluctant to tow camper. Or 600km involving back tracking to tarmac. Hearing different opinions from others ranging from 'walk in the park' to 'how much do you value your car'......Lastly spoke to another couple who were similarly towing and they'd managed fine. Preferred potentially shorter drive so took the risk. Luckily the right decision. Other tracks this trip have been rougher. Slow but easy. Just sandy and some small corrugations. We had organised a pass in Alice Springs to give us permission to drive on the Mereenie loop through the traditional land.

Planning to stay at Kings Canyon resort for 3 nights. $48p/n
