Desert Oaks Rest Area

Rest Area Overnight - Northern Territory


This free overnight rest area is a unsealed drive through layout with areas off the main drivethrough that you can camp.  It does have some shade available.  Here you will find toilets, water, picnic table and fireplace.

A great flat area with good access. Enough shade but open enough for solar. A couple of large shelters with tables. This is a second visit for us. Perfect location between the SA/NT border and Alice Springs.

Pretty good overnight spot this. Lots of room, but lots of grass seed too (dog owners note). At the southern end there is a track over a rise leading to possible more remote camp site - but its a bit like a sand dune so 4WD and camper trailer would be best suited. Fills up late in the day. Toilets were out of paper and water when we visited late July 07 .

A great overnight stop! Plenty of room. Very clean drop toilets, no smell, no rubbish, plenty of shade, quiet, just lovely.
