Very rough track, took approx 30 mins not towing. Heaps of room at the start inside the gate to unhitch your van. Worth the drive in, even the kids 2 & 4 really enjoyed wondering around exploring.

16 April rough track in took our Trakmaster Van , it took 1hr5 mins. We thought it was well worth the effort. The walks were very interesting and they certainly had it tough so don't whinge about the road in.

Interesting place where you can make nice walk of 1 1/2 hour.(there is the brochure with everything written) We spent half day including a lunch stop. We found at the side of the ruins a spring! The road is corrugated, so you have to take your time to reach the place but it's worth it!!
