Mt Dare Hotel is Australia's most remote pub - open to EVERYONE Mt Dare Hotel is ideally situated on the Western edge of the Simpson Desert just 10km south of the Northern Territory border. We are at a cross road for travellers, visit Ayers Rock to the west, Alice Springs to the north, Queensland via the Simpson to the east and the Oodnadatta track and the Flinders Rangers to the south.

A Desert Pass is required for the Simpson Desert and can be purchased from the Pub.

Native trees provide shade and privacy giving an air of peace and tranquillity. Toilet and hot shower facilities are provided.

Road from Oodnadatta via dalhousie was very patchy towing a 21 van. Some sections were down to 5kmh Been told the road to Finke has just had its annual grader run over it! camped here on the way to Finke. Large flat unpowered section out the back. Of course the pay ph wasn't working I'll get restocked at Finke tomorrow and maybe get lucky with the ph coverage Fuel is $3.05 diesel here

Road up from Oodnadatta is good until just before you reach Mt Dare. Heading north to Finke however is incredibly rough with severe corrugations and lots of surprise washouts that could easily do damage including before or after where some of the markers are. Campsite itself is pretty good and has everything you need.
