If you only have limited experience, we will help you out along the way. We have been driving offroad for many years and are here to help.
Much of the terrain that we travel through is rough and rugged. Much of the terrain will destroy a trailer, so it is not possible to bring a trailer for the desert sections.
You will be required to carry your own water. Each vehicle is self sufficient. We will let you know the recommended amount of water you need to carry and the various water points along the way, so you can fill up.
Yes. This is true and your vehicle will run on opal fine.
Many of the tours are in very remote areas and so it is not possible to shower everyday. When there is water available a camp shower will be provided for you.
It's up to you what food you bring with you but we will provide you with some ideas and recommendations of what works well in the bush and kinds of foods that store and travel well too.
We strongly recommend that you get your car checked over by a qualified mechanic before you leave to ensure that everything is as it should be.

Yes. We can pretty much guarantee that you will see a night sky full of stars. We travel to very remote areas where there is no polution and no lights for 100s of miles. The night skies are unbelievable.
When you book an Outback Treks four wheel drive tour you will be given a full Tour Information Kit which will provide you with all the useful information that you need for the trip. We will give you suggestions as to which gear you can bring.
The tour is led by a 4WD vehicle which will support you where necessary and help you get out of sticky situations.
You are required to carry all of your gear so that you are self sufficient. The support vehicle will carry all safety equipment and safety communication equipment such as satellite phone, radios, winch, first aid kit, shower and bbq plate.
We plan our tours at the best times of year for the various locations. But, as weather can be unpredictable, please be prepared for various weather conditions.
Once you book a tour a comprehensive information kit will be sent out to you. But, if you would like us to send out a kit so you can see what's what, please drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get one out to you, pronto.
