History and accreditations

Walking Country was established by Wayoutback Australian Safaris  n response to the growing demand by travellers for experiential walking based tours of Central Australia as well as the increased awareness of the now famous Larapinta Trail. With 20 years operating small group 4-wheel drive tours of Central Australia, Advanced Eco Tourism status, extensive indigenous content and a great reputation for authentic tours away from the crowds, Walking Country and the Larapinta was the perfect progression for Wayoutback.

It was also important to continue with the same ethos as Wayoutback to help people gain a true understanding of the unique landscape, history and wonders of the West MacDonnell Ranges and Central Australia.

Walking Country is a genuine small group tour operator based out of Alice Springs. Our maximum carrying capacity is 19 passengers in our late model air conditioned Mitsubishi Canter 4WD’s which are specially modified for “the bush.” Our public 5 Day tour and End to End tour are limited to 15 persons. Where numbers exceed this, we can consider a private charter for your group.

The smaller group numbers provide our Guides with more flexibility and versatility not generally available with larger group sizes so they can showcase the many unique features of this beautiful region. It is fair to state that those who travel with Walking Country actually realise the true “Aussie” outback in a friendly and relaxed manner.

Our Tours

If you’re short on time, our 5 Day Tour explores what we think is the best of the Larapinta Trail. For those with more time to allocate to the Red Centre, our 14 Day Tour covers the entirety of the 223 km trail from End to End.
