Tour Vehicles & Equipment
Camping Tours are the best way to get to remote secret places in Australia. This is what we have done it for nearly 20 years – and optionally our tours allow you to get accommodation at some locations for some extra pampering.
Take it easy while we show you some secret, sacred sites on our Camping or Accommodated Tours in style. These days, camping holidays are much easier than they used to be with new gadgets, but the old campfire is our favourite.
Comfy camping includes modern easy equipment and full height tent, bedding supplied, 75-100 mm (4 inch) mattress, stretcher if requested on Booking Form
Accommodation is also often available in motels, hotels or local en-suite cabins in remote areas
Our Accommodated & Camping Tours are available on most of our tours including Kimberley & Kakadu tours, MacDonnell Ranges, Uluru & Red Centre, Gulf Savannah Way tours, Pilbara Tours

Many areas we stay have modern facilities including laundries, ironing, toilets and showers. This includes Yulara (Uluru), Alice Springs, Glen Helen, Broome, Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek, Broken Hill, Copley, Prap Prap (Bush University) and other major towns.Camping in remote areas such as shown above is a special opportunity and real gift of outback travel – often just you and no-one – for great clarity of mind. Areas like this include Tanami Track and the Western Deserts. Here we may find a wonderful waterhole or river for swimming.Generally Central Australian winter travel is cool and dry – and each day is a refreshing new experience. Ask those who know after more than 40,000 years doing it.
We carry a portable hot shower for use in remote areas, and increasingly remote areas like Windjana Gorge and Palm Valley have solar powered showers.Some areas without showers include Bungle Bungles (Kimberley) and Redbank Gorge (MacDonnell Ranges).For an interesting and entertaining read, see the article by Professor Stuart Hill from School of Social Ecology CAMPING to change the WORLD
