ABOUT THIS TOUR
If you want to see the remote Western side of Australia then you have found the right trip. From Darwin to Alice Springs this trip will keep you on the edge of your seat. Make sure to bring lots of memory cards for your camera as most people end up buying a lot of them along the way. The scenery is the best Australia has to offer and the off road driving is second to none. We cross the Great Sandy Desert, Little Sandy Desert and the Gibson Desert on this 58 day Expedition. No other 4WD tag along tour company offers a tour like this. If you love the Australian great outdoors and like sand driving then this is the one.
