Owen Springs Reserve Camp Sites

The Reserve is located a short drive southwest of Alice Springs and can be accessed via a number of routes:

  • via Larapinta and Namatjira Drives northward along the Hugh River to the Alice Valley;
  • southward along the Hugh River from Larapinta Drive, 50 kilometres from Alice Springs; and
  • via the Stuart Highway, 66 kilometres south of Alice Springs.

A four wheel drive is essential. Some sections of the track follow the sandy bed of the river and may be impassable after rain.

North of Larapinta Drive, you can camp along the Hugh River as far as Reedy Waterhole and at Birthday Waterhole. Improved orientation signs have been installed in this area.

South of Larapinta Drive access is along one track between Larapinta Drive and the south Stuart Highway. Stop and walk around the historic Old Owen Springs Homestead. Camping is allowed between the signposts within Lawrence Gorge and near Redbank Waterhole.
