The outback is like a magnet, it just keeps drawing you back. In 1988 we led our first camping expedition into its immense vastness, and we’ve been there ever since. We know that when you experience it you will want to keep coming back too.
What is it about camping outback? It's the sense of freedom, exploring the unknown, and the surprises that await you around every turn of the track. It's the pristine, unspoilt natural environment. It's the still, deep waterholes, the majestic river red gums, the glowing red towering sand dunes and the vast shimmering salt lakes.
You’ll feel the presence of the early explorers, as we follow their paths across seldom travelled remote country. And sitting quietly beside an Aboriginal rock art gallery you cannot help but be touched by the spiritual presence of a culture stretching back into the dreamtime.
Our comfortable desert equipped air condiioned four wheel drives (4X4) do the heavy lifting getting us into very remote and difficult to access country, our guide to guest ratio is 1:4, and our guides are the best in the game! No-one does it like we do.
The evenings are unforgettable sitting around the blazing campfire reliving the adventures of the day while we prepare a delicious meal. Just because you are in the most remote part of Australia, there is no reason not to eat well. We love fine dining under a million stars. We reckon you’d be hard pressed to get better tucker in the best city restaurants. Modern cuisine with fresh ingredients cooked over the open fire. Yum!
And when the coals are glowing and the night is quiet, retire to your specially designed comfy swag, fully made up with sheets and doona, rolled out on a comfortable above ground stretcher. Whilst we don't include the glitz of glamping, you'll have the best sleep ever - guaranteed.
Over the years we have resisted the pressure to expand our company. There are plenty of tour operators out there running fleets of coaches. Our point of difference is we hand craft every adventure and generally only run each outback expedition once every year. This not only protects the environment, but gives our guests a unique personal experience. Every expedition we run is an odyssey - an event - the experience of a lifetime. We have won plenty of awards along the way, and have received glowing reviews from publications like Gourmet Traveller and Good Weekend.
You can travel with us in one of our desert equipped 4X4s, or if you would prefer we offer limited spaces to tagalong in your own vehicle.
We hope you enjoy this website and our collection of fine boutique expeditions. Whether you want to travel in our vehicles, or you have your own and wish to tagalong, we look forward to welcoming you on board soon.
