About Walking Country

Walking Country – Exclusive Hiking Tours and Private Charters in the Red Centre and Top End

Walking Country was established by Wayoutback Australian Safaris in 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 22 years operating small group 4-wheel drive tours of Central Australia, Advanced Eco Tourism status, extensive indigenous partners 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.


Small is Beautiful

Walking Country is a genuine small group tour operator based out of Alice Springs. Our maximum carrying capacity is 15 in our public departures or 19 in private charters in our late model air conditioned Mitsubishi Canter 4WD’s which are specially modified for “the bush”. Where numbers exceed this, additional guides and support crew will be considered.

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.
