    Has Anyone Been To Gosse's Bluff...

    ...lately? I mean this place.

    It looks "wild", in a sense. Is the road from the sealed Namatjira Drive turn-off easily done by "ordinary" sedan.
    (I mean it's only about 9Km!) Just need to know. I want to go there.

    Tar! (Or lack thereof) That's a very interesting article.

    It looks like I will have to hire a 4WD for a day or two when in the environs.

    I will factor that into the CO$T. We were going to get just an X-Trail

    It's becoming clear that to have just a small 4wd would be false economy, as what the hecque would you be able to get to and see.

    Last time I was there (-38 YBP) I had a Land Rover. That gottus about

    that article is 4 years old, so i would take the 4WD with a bit of salt
    there is a big effort by state/territory governments to make tourist attractions more accessible by improving the roads
    ring the nearest tourist bureau, probably Alice Springs, and ask them

    Nah! I got the same story from 2 car hire places in AS today.

    Mind you, it's a matter of how much is hype, but I suppose there are all sorts of
    safety agendas and ... who knows what else in place. When I was there in good ole '78,
    some of the main roads from past Hermannsberg to Kings Canyon just went "nowhere".

    However, I'll keep searching, but it look like hiring a more expensive 4wd some of the time .
