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.
