Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

Jatbula Trail

Winding its way along the edge of the escarpment from Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk) to Edith Falls (Leliyn), the Jatbula Trail is a truly extraordinary experience and one of the most popular Top End trips with our travellers. The stone country, or Arnhem Land escarpment, is one of the most exceptional wilderness areas in Australia. The Jatbula Trail in the Nitmilik National Park features magnificent waterfalls tumbling from high quartzite cliffs, shady monsoon forests line the creeks and stunning Jawoyn Aboriginal rock art adorns the caves and overhangs. The tropical equivalent of Tasmania's Overland Track, this full pack carrying bushwalk traverses the heart of this amazing part of Australia. You will trek during the cooler months to ensure the best experience of the tropical environment. With crystal-clear creeks throughout, there are abundant opportunities for swimming and just relaxing in the warm croc-free waters. Combine this trek with a Katherine River Canoe Expedition for the complete Top End wilderness experience.
