The famous Larapinta Trail extends for over 223km’s along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges in Central Australia and is divided into 12 sections.

Commencing at the Old Telegraph Station on the outskirts of Alice Springs, the trail meanders through many ancient river beds, sheltered gorges and stunning waterholes, climbing steeply over the rugged ranges with numerous stunning vantage points to take in the spectacular landscape.

The Larapinta takes in a variety of desert habitats before rewarding trekkers with 360° views from Mount Sonder – the highest point marking the end of the Trail.

Customer Testimonials

Everything far surpassed my expectations, , the walk itself was fantastic but my thanks and appreciation go out to our guide for his experience, local knowledge, delicious cooking and generousity of spirit.

Jeannine Wilson

It exceeded all our expectations largely due to the efforts of Katie, Josh and Chris. Nothing was too much trouble. And the food they created out of the embers was a bonus that none of us expected.

Janice Masters

I had a fantastic time on the trek and Di and Adam are amazing! They are great at what they do and made the trip very enjoyable and always had a smile and a laugh with the group!
