Some of the most beautiful sights in relatively close proximity to town and each other and most of them an easy walk for all ages and fitness levels:- Ormiston Gorge, Standley Chasm, Simpsons Gap, The Ochre Pits, Glen Helen Gorge.

Epicurious provides a wonderful 6 day trek on the Larapinta Track. I couldn't recommend the company and the guides Jen, Nikki and Lew more highly - they were excellent. They worked so hard to provide beautiful gourmet meals, the most spectacular scenery and catered as best they could for the individual needs of the trekkers. The campsite was very comfortable...

I just participated in the most exciting trek experience of my life! Trek Larapinta have just added a new package called "The Super Six." As the first group participating on this expedition we expected a few kinks along the way. However we were pleasantly surprised when tour guides Ben, Kate and Shaun picked us up from the hotel and immediately... More

I recently trekked with Trek Larapinta on a 6 day excursion and found it to be everything I had hoped for plus a lot more. From the moment Ben & Kate picked us up at our hotel to the time they dropped us off 6 days later their professionalism, experience, knowledge, personalities and exceptional cooking abilities made this trip 10/10....

This was my second trek with TrekTours Australia (formally Australian Wilderness Tours) and again recommend this company for their guides, expetise, knowledge and dedication. The Larapinta 6 day guided tour in April was exceptional - magnificent scenery, fantastic campsite and guides.

This is a walk for experienced trekkers if you are doing it without backup. Many of the sections can be done in four hours and quite enjoyable but avoid section 9 because there is no water, and be careful doing 4 and 5 because they take 9 hours and you will have to carry up to 5 litres of water....

We used Trek Larapinta transfers for our drop off and pick up on the Larapinta Trail. The service was great. Richard, our driver on both trips, was very helpful, informative and punctual. The walk itself - we went from Orminston Gorge to Redbank Gorger and Mt Sonder - was brilliant, a great experience even for two 13 year olds. Depsite... More
