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.

Tarkine Rainforest Walk

The Tarkine Rainforest Walk provides trekkers with exclusive access into the southern hemisphere's largest tract of cool temperate rainforest. Recognised globally for its ecological significance, the Tarkine rainforest provides a direct link to the ancient super continent of Gondwana. On easy to moderate day walks from Tiger Ridge basecamp, carrying only lightweight packs you will explore an ancient forest landscape dominated by towering Myrtle and Sassafras, discover secret waterfalls, glades of giant tree ferns, enticing waterholes and spectacular lookouts. A visit to the Tarkine's rainforests will transport you to a foreign world, one where a tapestry of rich greens is the backdrop. Best of all, there's no one else around.
