ABOUT ILKURLKA VISITOR CENTRE AND ROADHOUSE
Ilkurlka Visitor Centre and Roadhouse is a small community-controlled outstation run by the Spinifex People and roadhouse on the Anne Beadell Highway in Western Australia. It is probably the most remote roadhouse in Australia and is the only outpost on the Anne Beadell Highway between Coober Pedy and Laverton.

Welcome to Ilkurlka Visitor Centre!
Ilkurlka update 21 July 2021
There are new border restrictions which restrict entry across the South Australian border into Western Australia.
If you have suitable premises, you must enter self-quarantine for 14 days when entering Western Australia from South Australia. If not, you will be directed to enter a government-approved quarantine facility at your own expense for 14 days.
Please note that Ilkurlka does not have facilities for self-quarantine.
Until these restrictions are lifted, Ilkurlka will be closed to travellers from the east. Ilkurlka will remain open for travellers from the west.
We ask that visitors use face masks and hand sanitiser when entering the premises. We have a supply of hand sanitiser and a limited amount of face masks so we'd be grateful if you could bring your own masks!
