Hi
We have an 18 foot dual axle bustracker and wondering if we can get it into the Bungle Bungles?
Anyone done it?
Any dramas?
Love our van!!!
Cheers

Hi,
Twin axle caravans are not allowed into the Bungles...
However, As campground hosts we were permitted to take our Bushtracker in the last couple of years....
Horrendous corrugations and dodging the oncoming 4WD Tour buses made it interesting....

There is a free camp only a couple of kms from the turnoff where a lot of folks leave their vans and drive in for the day, the alternative being the station caravan park on the road in..

Cheers

Hi Steve, We went there in 2019 but unfortunately there is a sign saying that only single axle trailers are permitted in the park. We left our van at the caravan park just outside the entrance to the Bungles and drove in and camped for the night.
I think if I was to go again I would not hesitate to take our 20'' Bushtracker. We would have done it easily. Maybe a van without the ground clearance a Bushtracker has, would struggle a bit.

We left our van in the caravan park just off the highway and stayed 2 nights at the Bungle Bungle wilderness lodge in 2019.

The Bungles deserve more than one day and the road in is really too much to travel both ways each day. I would have been quite happy to take the 20' Bushtracker in if it were allowed and would probably have stayed an extra night. The road is rough and narrow and windy in places but would be OK with care. The lodge is an expensive alternative to camping but saved us having to take camping gear for the few nights we would have used it. (We did the same at Mitchell Falls, leaving the van at Drysdale river. Glad we did that time. The Kulumbaru road at the time was one of the worst roads we have been on.)

Why double axles no and singles yes? What’s the logic in that?

Almeister X2 don’t see how they can justify, but it’s always been like that.

I&S answer to your comment on the Kalumburu road, it has some Rockshelves and no grader can fix these, just have to drive to conditions. We traveled that road when you could camp right up at Mitchell Falls with van.
