Red Earth Roaming
This small, privately owned company has just one reliable, experienced guide and one beautiful 21-seater bus!
The guide is an Alice Springs local with five years' experience guiding for several different companies in the Red Centre. Her tours are personal, fun, affordable and always unique. With a very relaxed, informative and cozy style of guiding, she has learned from each company what suits her, what makes guests happy, and what she doesn't wish to do on her tours, which includes rushing!
Red Earth Roaming explores the spectacular West MacDonnell and East MacDonnell Ranges and around Alice Springs. With excellent local knowledge they can design any kind of charter trip to suit all needs, while always remaining affordable. Their East Macs Adventure day tour runs every Monday and Friday, and private tours can be organised in between. This year they won't be running camping tours but can arrange multi-day trips with accommodation at Glen Helen, Ross River Resort or here in Alice Springs. They cater for groups of up to 16 guests, finding anything higher than that too impersonal.
Trips are filled with all kinds of information about nature, the environment and the Indigenous and European history of Central Australia. Always happy, always caring and always trying to teach people about the importance of respecting our beautiful planet.
This leisurely day trip through the beautiful East MacDonnell Ranges will give you insight into the geological formation of these spectacular ranges as well as the local flora, fauna, Aboriginal and European history, and many other random facts about this highly unique part of Australia. Stopping first at beautiful Emily Gap, we then head down the track to stroll around Corroboree Rock, an impressive formation traditionally visited only by Aboriginal men. Then off to the stunning Trephina Gorge, dropping in to hug the Giant Ghost Gum along the way! The Gorge offers a short, 2km walk with incredible views, as well as an alternative stroll up the sandy river bed to view the rock art and the towering quartzite cliffs! To cool down, we will wind up at the quirky, historical Ross River Resort for lunch and a cuppa or a cold beer, then back to Alice Springs via Jessie Gap
