Keep an Eye on the Weather and Road Conditions!
Although a desert we can get severe weather events from time to time. These can make travel impossible so it pays to check what is happening before you leave Laverton or Coober Pedy.
You can also phone Ilkurlka on 08 9037 1147 - we will be happy to pass on what we know.
We use the following sources of information:

The best time to travel is in winter - it does get cold at night but the days are pleasant. In summer, temperatures are usually around 40°c and sometimes higher. Generally the weather is also a little more predictable as well!

Welcome to Ilkurlka Visitor Centre!
Ilkurlka update 26 December 2021
There are border restrictions which restrict entry across the South Australian border into Western Australia.
As there is also uncertainty around the spread of COVID19 in the Perth region, we have taken the decision to close the roadhouse during January 2022.
We regret that we have had to close during January but we must manage the risk of COVID19 entering our communities.
