Coming up from the south, VFR Route 5 is a popular route for pilots flying in from William Creek, Oodnadatta and Lake Eyre. ATC recommends that, irrespective of your altitude, you contact Alice Springs Tower, 118.3, at 45-50NM with your inbound details.
Track for the initial VFR approach point of Deep Well.
Deep Well is easily identified adjacent to a prominent bend in the Old South Road, an unsealed but easily visible road, marked on your VTC. You will track overhead a farm of date palms, planted in distinctive rows, immediately east of the road.

Flat and fairly featureless country makes it easy to follow the dirt road as you continue northbound to your next checkpoint of Mount Ooraminna at about 19NM from Alice.
There is a small resort here, a little hard to see, on the south-west corner of this compact cluster of hills, lying just to the east of the road. Allow plenty of time to listen to the ATIS and contact the Tower for your clearance to enter the controlled airspace.
Tracking further north, you will fly overhead the old disused railhead of Ewaninga, on the western side of the road and comprising a cluster of little shacks and an old fettlers’ camp.
