Camping Tanami Road

We camped on awesome spots near the Tanami Road. The campingspot was just accros the entrance road (37km) of the Balgo gasstation. You can have an amazing sunset on the mountain beside the spot. When you put your tent with the window to the opposite side you can watch an amazing sunrise as well!

Gasstations Tanami Road

We filled up our car at the Balgo gasstation. (Open mon-fri 9am-12noon and 2pm-4pm Sat 9am till 12noon) You have to pay there with card. The road to Balgo gasstation is horrible. Drive slow and take your time before you destroy your car.
