What a great point of interest. Track to get through was rough, but managed ok in 4WD. We felt it was totally worth it. The information plaques and fenced off area, a credit to the NT Govt. for trying to preserve a part of our history.

Road in is not suitable for towing a van or high motorhomes, due low tree branches and a bit narrow in spots, Track a bit bouncy, you don't need a 4wd but you do need a bit of ground clearance.

It's a bumpy dirt road in, we parked the motorhome at the entrance and walked about 10mins to the crash site Well worth it .
