THE Old Andado Track runs from Alice Springs to Mount Dare – about 430km. The section from Alice to Old Andado homestead is suitable for high clearance off-road campers and vehicles. The section from Old Andado homestead to Mount Dare is more challenging and therefore recommended for 4WD only.
The majority of the Old Andado Track is unsealed and can be closed after rain – check road conditions at www.nt.gov.au.
This is a remote-area experience and travellers should be selfsufficient with everything from water to communications – there’s no mobile network coverage.
Camping at Old Andado is $10 per adult per night; showers and homestead tour costs a gold coin donation. A few ATCO rooms are also available but there are no other facilities at Old Andado.
Camping and cabin accommodation is available at Mount Dare, as are fuel, meals and some groceries.
