Enjoy an awesome desert experience along the Googs Track in the far-west of South Australia. The tack travels remote and remarkable country, and is a four-wheel-drive adventure that wanders through the southeastern extremity of the Great Victoria Desert in Australia. Find out what it’s like to cross a multitude of red sand dunes and to skirt the most curious arid landscapes. The area sees few visitors, and along the Googs Track well-prepared travellers can experience a rare and absolute solitude.
Highlights of this 4WD adventure include the massive salt expanses of Goog’s Lakes and the imposing landmark of Mt Finke. We take a side trip to the amazing granite formations of Nalara and Lois rocks and enjoy some of the best bush camping to be found. Video tidbits include a look at driving the Googs Track, and a glimpse of one of the desert’s unusual inhabitants, the painted cockroach.
Through the pages of this book, find out what the unmaintained two-wheel sandy track that is the Googs Track is really like.
The Googs Track is suitable for self-sufficient travellers with a high clearance 4WD vehicle and 4WDing skills. Accommodation is bush camping only.
