From Alice Springs it goes west via Larapinta Drive to Hermannsburg along the south of the West Macdonnell Range. The former German mission is worth a visit.
The first 4WD challenge is Palm Valley. Watarrka (Kings Canyon) is reached via the Mereenie Loop, which is subject to a permit. A 6 km tightrope walk along the rock edges is unforgettable.
The sunsets at Uluru (Ayers Rock) are uniquely beautiful, and the sunrise also promises to be a colorful experience.
After visiting Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), it goes on Tjukururu Road (Docker River Road) past Lasseter Cave and the native place Kaltukatjara (Docker River). To the West Australian border.
It is not far from here to Warakurna, the first roadhouse in WA. This is where the Old Gunbarrel Highway and Gunbarrel Highway begin. There are uniquely beautiful desert slopes for off-road vehicle enthusiasts.
Together they are about 1000 km long and lie between Warakurna Roadhouse on Great Central Road and Carnegie Station, about 350 km from Wiluna in Western Australia. The Gunbarrel Highway ends here. There is a lot to experience and learn: fauna and flora, unique landscapes, Australian history, and unique driving experience.
