Eg a $3000 passenger tour is $1500 for 2 people ($750 each) as a tag along tour. A small extra amount for extra passengers may be added depending on tour and duration, and add-on expenses like flights, cruises or permits.
ADULT ONLY OR FAMILY FRIENDLY TOURS – we tailor for customer preferences
We understand many people prefer to travel with an adult only group and many others prefer to travel with kids and family. We respect and cater for both options and ensure people are travelling in a group that suits their preferences. You should advise us so we can plan this for you. Most of our tag-along tours are adult only.
School holiday times (which are different in different states) are a time more likely to attract family travellers. At school holiday time Kids are encouraged and well supported on our family friendly tag along tours. Private family or group tours are also available – PLEASE ASK

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.
