Cannot see anything from the carpark but when you walk over the hill - WOW! Ruins of a whole little town. Make sure you get an information leaflet from the carpark before entering so you can match the building numbers to what they used to be. A few flys around in late Sept so bring your fly net. Well worth the drive.

Well done to the folk trying to preserve this slice of Central Australian history. Well worth the walk.

Worth that little bit of an extra walk. Amazing that there were people living here way out here. Agree with previous user that it is great that the old buildings are being protected with new roofs!
