We lunch at Googs Lake and then we leave the track and head east on through the Dog Fence (with special permission) to Childara Rockhole on Lake Everard Station, to set up camp and have a Happy Hour and enjoy the serenity of this magic spot!

Day 2 –  Sunday, 4th October

From our camp at the rock hole we make our way back with a brief stop at Nalara Rock with a short climb to take in all the beauty of this area and then on to Goog's Track for lunch and then northwards to camp near Mt. Finke and have another Happy Hour!

Day 3 –  Monday, 5th October

A morning climb of Mt Finke (for those who wish to) and then we tackle the soft sand dunes to complete the Goog’s as we head to Malbooma Siding on the Trans Continental Railway line, before heading east through the now (almost) ghost town of Tarcoola and on to Kingoonya to enjoy a great meal at the pub and a lovely hot shower at the campground.

Note - You can have a Motel room (with shared bathroom facilities) at the Kingoonya Hotel if you'd prefer, for an additional expense. We can pre-book this for you - POA.
