Munga-Thirri (Simpson Desert) National Park
Get off the beaten track
Go bush at Munga-Thirri (Simpson Desert) National Park. Only accessible by 4WD and only in the dry season, the Simpson Desert offers the ultimate journey for self-sufficient adventurers with experience of ‘big dune country’. Drive past dramatically-sculptured red sand dunes, gibber pebble plains and claypans. Camp under starlit skies and experience the exhilarating isolation of this iconic national park.
