Mt Woodroffe

South Australia

The tallest mountain in South Australia. Deep in the remote outback, but on APY lands so permit required. Diversetravel run an annual tour in May. No marked track, spinifex and remoteness make this a challenge.

Getting there:

Easiest way is to book with Diverse Travel. Getting permission is nearly impossible - it would be easier to get permission to visit North Korea.



Route/Trail notes:

There is no route marked to the top. You will have to keep going up until you see some cairns marking the final route.


Permits from APY are required. Diverse Travel tour is around $1000

Loved this walk. Spinifex had been largely burnt in a recent fire. Camping in the creek bed listening to howling dingoes is cool.
