For those who have travelled the Madigan Line and the Hay River track, do you have preferred camp spots? We will have 6 nights on each track in June 2024. TIA
Received permission from Adria Downs to travel through their property so that was exciting.
After the dual crossing we will travel the Binns Track north of Alice, across to Nhulubuy, down to King Ash Bay, then back home via the Gulf, Cobbold Gorge, Porcupine Gorge and Carnarvon Gorge.
At this stage, 12 weeks on the road, 11,600kms
Applied online and received my CLC permits for the Madigan Line and Hay River Track. Free and received the day after applying.
But, I also had to print and complete a form, sign it and email it back to Batton Hill Camp together with a $240 bank transfer.
I am a bit peeved at the cost because the application form states “All camping fees are waved for 2024 as the campground needs renovating, feel free to use the facility.”
Also read a rumour that they are going to close the Hay River Track permanently at the end of 2024.
Do it Alby.
I don't know if there is any substance to that, but doing N-S is a completely different experience to EW, and IMHO, much better and way less traffic. Take your time too.
Not the first time I’ve heard it. An email to the CLC permits office in Alice would get your answer.
Read it online like everything else these days. We decided to include it in this year’s NT trip as we have always wanted to do it and didn’t want to miss it if the rumour was true.
