History and accreditations

Walking Country was introduced by Wayoutback Australian Safaris to meet the increasing demand for multi-day walking tours of Central Australia, specifically the epic Larapinta Trail.

Based out of Alice Springs, we are a trusted small group tour operator. We boast over 22 years of experience providing small group 4-wheel drive tours of the Northern Territory.

Our air-conditioned Mitsubishi Canter 4WD’s can accommodate up to 19 travellers. Our 14-day and 5-day Larapinta Trail tours can include up to 15 persons while larger groups can enlist in our worry-free private charters.

We manage Level IV Advanced Eco-Certified Tours which is EcoTourism Australia’s highest recognition for operational practices, environmental awareness, and cultural representation.

Thanks to our trained tour guides and hand-crafted itineraries, travellers enjoy authentic tours away from the crowd and extensive indigenous experiences.

Following the same ethos as Wayoutback, we strive to help clients gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of West MacDonnell Ranges’ unique landscape, culture, and history. Our trained guides are well-versed in Aboriginal culture, DreamTime, local wildlife, and the natural environment.

Unlike larger group tours, the smaller group numbers allow more flexibility and versatility so travellers can fully enjoy the natural wonders of Larapinta Trail. We can create personalised schedules and itineraries to meet your needs.
