Finke 2018 Spectator

Hi All,

I'm looking for some advice from any who have been to Finke as a spectator.

My plan was to catch the prologue then head straight down to Finke and hopefully get a camp site around 20km north on the western side of the track. The reason for that is I want to be able to start heading south home on the Monday arvo. I know the track is closed until 6pm Monday but are there any other ways out to the Stuart Hwy besides driving the track back to Finke?

Or am I better off just staying up the Alice end with the rest of the hooligans around Deep Well where I can get out before 6.

Thanks

Camp with the hooligans, lol. Will be lots more fun.
Maybe around the 40 k dune where there is lots of action.

Nope. You'll have to drive the service road to finke then back via the highway. Plenty of good action spots between 0-70km mark

We are in a 4WD and are well set up for camping.

But time being the limiting factor will probably see us staying closer to Alice Springs.

Go to around the 80 fuel stop. Few good spots there. Then out to the hwy via the 4wd track right at that spot and comes out near Stewarts well on the hwy.

Anywhere south of 60km mark is good. Less people around due to road closure at Deep Well, head down after prologue. First buggy past at 7:30am on sunday. You can head north back to finish line early on monday morning.
