Driving west on the Lasseter Highway (Route 4) from the Stuart Highway on our way to Ayers Rock Resort, we came upon a pleasant surprise, Mount Conner. We stopped at the lookout along the highway. At first I thought it could be Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) but we realized it had a flat top. (Later I read some locals refer to it as “Fool-uru” since so many tourists mistake it.) Less obvious was the large salt lake on the opposite side of the highway, just a short walk over the hill.Pic 2017-0911 02 Mt Conner Lookout (4) Edit

You cannot easily get to Mount Conner. It is on private land and can only be accessed by a private tour. Mulga Park Road, an unpaved “short-cut” from Lasseter to Stuart appears to provide a closer viewpoint but we were not prepared for that detour.

    Imagination running away- Mount Conner looks like a landing pad for a spaceship.
