Overview

Tours depart Maralinga Village campground on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with passengers arriving at the locked gates at Maralinga on the afternoon before your tour begins. Your tour host will rendezvous on a pre-arranged, permitted entry schedule. It is just a few minutes' drive from the gates up to the Maralinga Village campground. There are hot showers, time to use the laundry facilities, to check emails, to recharge phones and laptops and to settle in for the evening.

Tours depart at around 9.00am the next morning with first stop at the airstrip and facilities. Move on to the Roadside Village, the former 'control point' for the detonations. Visit Taranaki - the largest of the bombs (at twice the size of that dropped on Hiroshima), on to Breakaway Ground Zero - where a circle of molten green glass, two kilometres in diameter was generated from the blast, to Marcoo and finally Tufi - a site prepared but called off just a few days before the detonation.

The coach arrives at the campground in the late afternoon with visitors departing the next morning.

The remote location means that self-catering (fuel, snacks and food supplies) must be visitor's own responsibility.
