We leave Ceduna and pass through 'Lone Oak' and on to the iconic Goog’s Track. Time to drop our tyre pressures as we start to make our way north and east over 400 sand dunes. We lunch at Googs Waterhole before visiting Goog's Lake and then we leave the track and head east on through to Nalara Rock, to set up camp and have a Happy Hour and enjoy the serenity of this magic spot!

From our camp at Nalara rock we make our way back with a brief stop at Goog's Lake for lunch and then back on to Goog's Track and northwards to camp near Mt. Finke and have another Happy Hour and enjoy dinner under in our million star restaurant (campsite)!

Day 3 –  Monday, 4th 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.

    interested in the Googs Track tour in October. Can we utilise our roof top tent for camping and is there enough clearance on the track. Also please keep us informed if a 3 day Bendalby Track tour becomes availabe in the future. Just starting to find our feet with 4wd touring but would like to get more confidence and experiance before venturing out on our own.

      Hi Glen, thanks for your enquiry. There are a lot of overhanging branches on the Googs Track and we also do a side tour which has a lot of low branches hanging over that track, so Roof top tents are not really a good idea. You are welcome to join us in October, but we’d recommend a swag or tent as a better alternative to a roof top tent.
      We don’t have any Bendleby tours planned at the moment, as we are booked up until August with 4WD Training and our Outback Tag along Tours. If you’d like to join us on our Goog’s Track tour, please fill out our ‘Bookings’ page enquiry form, so we don’t forget about you, as we don’t communicate through here very often.
