Camping near Docker River guide

Overview

At the southwestern corner of the Northern Territory, within a short distance of the Western Australia and South Australia state lines, Docker River (Kaltukatjara) is the last (or first) stop for intrepid road-tripping caravanners. Following the dusty red Great Central Road through the remote outback plains is an adventure in itself, passing beneath towering red cliffs and desert landscapes and staying at campsites along the way. Perhaps stop to cool off at Mutitjulu Waterhole, hike around the magnificent rocks of Kata Tjuta/Mount Olga, and visit ancient sites such as Lasseter's Cave. In Docker River, you’ll find a gas station, convenience store, and basic amenities, while the sole Docker River campground is pet-friendly with space for self-contained caravans. Just make sure you bring everything you need, as this remote pitstop has no facilities.
