Situated on the sealed Stuart Highway (Explorer Highway) 846km north of Adelaide and 689km south of Alice Springs.

Our tours offer real Outback experiences travelling over vast cattle properties, over gibber plains, red sand hills and ancient inland seabeds. Learn about this diverse area, it's history and pioneers with fully accredited guides who have lived and worked in the area for most of their lives.

Our tours will take you to those hard to get to places, where you will not only see great scenery, but also travel over the ancient Inland Sea bed and learn how Central Australia was formed over the last 190 million years.

We will tell you about the early explorers, the arid land pastoral industry, the fauna and flora and what it is like to live in the outback.

All of our tours are conducted in comfortable air-conditioned 4WD vehicles, and we travel in smaller groups for a more personal, casual and relaxing atmosphere so we can cater to your needs.
