The campground is positioned at the edge of the Maralinga Village, with sweeping views over the surrounding countryside. While there are no powered sites, there are ablution facilities, equipped with hot showers, laundry, 240v* power outlets and clothes lines and from sometime in June 2018 there should be a new camp kitchen for shared and group use.
Small, baffled generators can be used up until 9pm, with the agreement of fellow campground users.
There is are reticulated water outlets and a central fire pit is available in the campground. We supply a sustainable amount of free firewood for campers use. A central barbeque hot plate and prep area is also provided.
Wi-fi coverage that enable laptops and i-pads to be used. This is for checking emails etc. If the data limit for the month is blown out the service is "shaped" and very slow, so please be gentle. The good news is that while Telstra mobile phone coverage is patchy arount the village, from the raised area immediately south of the campground that was the old swimming pool, 1 or 2 bars of Telstra service is available.
There is also a small-cell Optus service for the village area only.
Please note: There aren't any fuel facilities available at Maralinga, you must make sure you have enough for the return trip. You can top up at Nundroo, Penong or Nullarbor. (see the map)
*There are no "powered sites" and the supply WON'T run a kettle or heater. The outlets available in the abultion area will be able to charge phones, laptops and camera batteries.
