ABOUT THIS TOUR

On this tour we take in some incredible scenery and some challenging tracks. You will get to experience a few days on the Canning Stock Route on your way to the Gunbarrel Highway. This trip is full of incredible scenery, awesome gravel roads and windy tracks. With desert crossings, bulldust holes and rugged outback towns!

So if you have a sense of adventure, and want bragging rights to last a lifetime, maybe you should clear your calendar for this one. Drive your 4WD across both the Gibson and Little Sandy Deserts all in the same week. Enjoy stunning vistas of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the biggest night sky on earth. Drive for days on end without seeing another person. Conquer the amazing 'Abandoned' section of the Gunbarrel Highway. Drive to the most remote parts on Earth!

On this expedition you see the 'Real Australia'. There are no tourist buses where we take you. You will visit places only a few lucky people have ever seen. You won't find this experience offered anywhere else.
