ROAD INFO:
Driving from Xade to Piper Pan took a traveller about 6 hours in April 2010, as it was pouring with rain. The track can then get extremely muddy, and where there is no mud, it will be covered in water.
In the dry season it can take anywhere between 3 and 6 hours as it's a very bumpy and rough track. (April 2010).

 Travel Tip!

Borehole water available at the main gate but visitors are encouraged to bring their own drinking water. You are no longer allowed to collect wood from the bush in the CKGR! (Oct-14).
