    On the road south from Mt Isa to Boulia, you exit westwards for Alice Springs. First stop is Urandangi, a small community of a dozen or so houses, before continuing perfectly 'south' with the 2-wheels wide thru the grass dirt track following the Qld - NT border line on the map, into Tobermorey, before turning westwards onto the Plenty Hwy (another variable quality dirt road) and eventually reaching The Alice
