It's years since my first visit , I remember looking down that steep rutted dirt road and thinking ....am I really going down there and once I do will I ever get up again , one of the joys of 4 wheel driving is testing your nerve & the caperbility of your vehicle . The road has been improved also... 更多
This was the highlight of our 12 day trip from Cunnamulla Qld to Alice Springs travelling across the Simpson Desert. We camped here one night. Thought it was a magical place. Much preferred it to Ayres Rock.
For all the talk of the terrible road to Chambers Pillar from Alice Springs were thought it was well worth the effort. Go in the afternoon stay the night - seeing the sunset and sunrise. The Pillar is at its best morning and night. The campground is basic, but its remoteness is part of the attraction. There are drop toilets... 更多
The campsite at Chambers Pillar is well kept with effective gas BBQs and clean drop toilets. We were in a rented 4WD Landcruiser camper and, while conditions will change after rain, this is how we found the access road. The road from Alice Springs to Maryville is a good dirt road with a few patches of sand and deeper gravel... 更多
You need to take the Ghan exit on route to the Alice Springs airport. This is where the paved road pretty much ends. The road to Maryvale is unsealed with some sandy parts and some smooth parts but is mostly corrugated road. It should take about 1.5 to 2.0 hr even for those with little 4WD experience. Take a break... 更多
Definitely worth a visit when you're in the area, provided you have a suitable vehicle. A beautiful formation in a beautiful landscape, with cultural & spiritual significance. Worth spending a night here to witness a sunrise and sunset. Make sure you're prepared and check road conditions and vehicle suitability before visiting.
A rough road to get here from Finke, but the scenery is amazing. The camping is adequate with toilets, however a one night stay is all that you need. The walks are lovely
Missed out on this 25 years earlier so were not going to miss it again. The road out was chopped up and varied. Be careful with the large holes filled with bull dust. Just drive to conditions. Tourist bureau almost talked us out of going there because of Sandhills. There aren't any Sandhills so to speak of. U travel the... 更多
A 4WD is necessary, but the track is well maintained and an easy drive. One steep incline where, from the top, you will get your first sight of the pillar. Well presented campgrounds ( there are 2) with good recently installed toilets and undercover eating areas. Fireplaces provided but take in your own timber. Great views at sunset.
