Desert Dwellers, for quality camping equipment.
Where you can choose from over 100,000 products.
"If we don't have it, you don't need it!"


Find us in 3 easy moves from the Stuart Highway, Alice Springs:

  1. Turn into Larapinta Drive from the Stuart Highway (over the railway tracks, heading west)
  2. After 850 metres, at the only roundabout, turn right into Milner Road.
  3. Take the second left into Elder Street (by the Veterinary hospital)

And there we are, half-way down Elder St, on the right! (You'll see we also give a home to the Finke Desert Race Office.) With a huge car park, there is plenty of room for cars, trucks, camper vans, combis, caravans, trailers, bikes, buses and even RVs.
