Beautiful couple of hours to enjoy nature. Saw kangaroos, birds, parrots and peace and quiet. What a lovely way for a tourist to experience the area.

It rocks! We walked parts of the western end of the trail. It is well marked, without being over-done

You can just do a few kilometres from the Telegraph Station if you choose… a beautiful safe walk. Bring water in summer. Choose sunrise not twilight

I’ve just returned from a six-day trek with Trek Larapinta on the Larapinta Trail. I cannot speak highly enough of this company and the excellent services they provided during the trek. There were eight trekkers in our group. The food was outstanding and the guides, Holga, a company part-owner, and Jacob, were fantastic with their knowledge of the West McDonnell... More

This was a wonderfully well organised and provisioned trek through some of the spectacular and rugged terrain in the West Macdonnell Ranges. The distances we trekked each day were well suited to our abilities, although I'm sure some could have walked forever.

Our guides Holger and Kate were very aware of the different needs of such a diverse group and looked after us... More

Trek Larapinta's nine day hike in the west MacDonnell Ranges near Alice Springs, NT, was a fantastic experience. We were a group of ten ranging from quite experienced to novice hikers. Holger, co-owner of Trek Larapinta, was a fantastic host and guide. On the trail he was observant of the abilities of everyone and supported them to achieve the walk... More
