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.
