Gibson Desert trip with OTA this July.

Gibson Desert / Great Sandy Desert Expedition 

This expedition is designed for those travellers with a sense of adventure and a passion for the outback that want to travel a track that is considered to be the most remote in the country. The trip can be a tag-along, or a driven, fully-catered experience.

The journey starts in the heart of the Australian outback, Alice Springs. We have a night in town before heading north-west to Tilmouth Well, an oasis on the Tanami Road. From here we continue to Balgo and south along the nameless ‘track’ that leads deep into the Gibson Desert. We spend a few nights in the desert before hitting the western edge of Lake Mackay, the largest of any of the salt lakes in WA or the NT. It’s then on to Kiwirrkurra Community, known as the most remote community in the continent. We restock supplies before heading back to Alice Springs via Kintore on the Gary Junction Road, one of the many roads built by outback road making legend, Len Beadell.

The trip is expected to take seven days / six nights. There are limited vehicles (maximum six) on this journey and there is only one tag-along slot still available, but four fully-catered seats in the lead vehicle that also carries supplied camping gear for the occupants.

There is the option to extend the trip to include another of Len Beadell’s track, and his favourite, the Sandy Blight Junction Track on to Uluru, adding another four days. This will be subject to interest.

John Stafford from Alice Springs Expeditions will leading the trip and has four seats available for those wishing to join him. He will be taking a very comfortable and well equipped Land Rover Discovery 4. John has experience in this track as he co-ordinated and led the European Land Rover Experience (a spin-off of the Camel Trophy) and associated media event through the area in 2015.

While this is probably the most remote track you will have ever been on, we ensure all measures have been taken to ensure your safety. We will carry a myriad of communication devices to ensure that any assistance if required can be actioned.
