Docker River is an Aboriginal community about 235 km west of Ayers Rock Resort, just by the WA border.
You`ll need a permit to stop there, even if you`re only buying fuel. The permit can be obtained from the Visitors Center at the resort (allow half a day at most to get a reply).
Whilst off the beaten track, this could also qualify as `tourist trap` tip too. Fuel prices go up to $20 per liter (USD50 per gallon) on public holidays. Pricey!
Several places give you the opportunity to ride a camel. You can have just a 5 minute stroll or go for camel treks for up to 14 days.
Camels run wild in the centre of Australia, they were used for expeditions and for building the railways and afterwards let loose in nature. They are some of the best and purest camels in the world.
