Finke Gorge National Park Reviews & Ratings
Great for nature lovers, unusual views. Only 4WD. Easy drive to "Kalarranga lookout," climb it, the view is definitely worth it. Then slightly more difficult drive to "Palm Valley." I completed one of the two walks in Palm Valley. After Palm Valley, the off-road driving became too difficult for me
Great 4wd track that can constantly change
Love the ehole area
WOW.......... just WOW.... 4WD only AMAZING views... heaps of 4wd action .. amazing place, rich in natural and cultural heritage, stunning landscapes, and arid zone fauna and flora.
What an amazing drive! Did it south to north (Uluru to AS) Don't take a trailer! And carry a UHF on channel 10 people it's a National Park. Use your radio as there are a lot of blind turns, river exits etc. We came across 4 vehicles, none on channel 10. This track has everything except mud but if you really want it it's there too. Hundreds of metres of river sand at times. Bulldust patches, gravel, rocks, red dirt. In the middle is Boggy Hole. Clean water with a green tinge. There are fish in there too. Lots of shade to camp in. A great day activity and kudos to Territory 4x4 for marking the trail.
