Australia's most iconic desert walking experience

The Larapinta Trail is recieving plenty of attention of late.  ABC News for instance has released a superb photo expose of what it describes  as "A demanding track carved out of the landscape with the help of prison labour", the Larapinta Trail is now one of Australia's most iconic desert walking experiences - you can see the expose here. 

Australian Geographic claims it is "one of the world's best long-distance arid-zone walks". It is a spectacular Australian desert trek which traverses the ridgelines of the West MacDonnell Ranges from east to west. Situated in Tjoritja, also known as the West MacDonnell National Park, the Larapinta trail includes many sites sacred to the Arrernte Aboriginal people, with highlights along the track including Simpson's Gap, Ormiston Gorge, Ellery Creek Big Hole, Mount Sonder and more.

Situated just out of Alice Springs and spanning 223kms across the West MacDonnell Ranges the trek is divided into 12 different sections that can take between 12-14 days to complete,

Graham Talmage is seeking expressions of interest to complete part of the trek in August later this year - you can find further details on the Website under the 'Overnight Hiking' tab in the Events section or see here

Join Graham on what will be an unforgettable hike in Australia's Red Centre and an experience that will stay with you for years to come.
