Four legs or four wheels, it doesn't matter. Climb aboard and join an outback safari in a 4WD bus, or feel the dust in your hair as you roar through a cattle station on a quad bike. Tour companies offer a range of vehicles equipped to handle outback adventure, and the locals know the best places to go.

Take a hike

It's not all about cars and buses. Home to the world famous Larapinta Walking Trail, this region has an abundance of day and overnight walking tours. Trek through the West MacDonnell Ranges and down to the Finke Gorge National Park. Learn about the culture and traditions of the Western Arrernte people and delve into history of one of the oldest landscapes in the world.

Flying high

Treat yourself to the adventure of a lifetime. Climb 5000ft above the desert floor in a hot air balloon or take a helicopter tour and experience the desert landscapes from above. Witness the majestic colours of the outback, spot native wildlife and experience the vivid sunsets of the Red Centre.

History and Gems

Get off the beaten track and head out to the lesser-known East MacDonnell Ranges and the breathtaking Harts Ranges. Take a 4WD history tour and see the diggings of the mica miners of the 1900s and visit the Atitjere Aboriginal Community.

Further on you will discover Gemtree and the famed Centralian gem fields. Fossicking tours are available, so try your luck at discovering the precious stones of garnet and zircon.
