An off road track that must be treated with care - only by experienced 4wdrivers. It is remote and there are no facilities or help available. Googs Lake and Mount Finke are landmarks not to be missed. Camping is available at both places. Stunning scenery...More

Love Googs Track! First time going further north than the lake this time, and what an adventure it was. Challenging sand hills for our group of 3 vehicles with campers! Vegetation is amazing, with beautiful camping spots.

A very poor mans Simpson Desert. This trip does not live up to the hype of being an alternative to the Simpson.

We did this trip mid june, 2015, south to north. Weather was mild and the track was in pretty good condition except near the top of dunes where people had bogged down - no doubt caused by high tyre pressures and people towing trailers. Quite...More

Certainly not advisable. A lot of people struggle make it towing a camper trailer. The sand over the dunes would be a real potential show stopper for a Caravan.
