Desert Travel – Cross Country Tanami Desert

Desert Travel – Cross Country Tanami Desert

Activity Description:

Please Note this trip is fully booked This trip starts at Curtin Springs then we collectively move to Western Australia via the Great Central Road. Travel north via the Sandy Blight Track to the Gary Highway. Travel further north; cross country through the Tanami Desert roughly following the route taken by the explorer David Carnegie in 1897. The exit point will be Balgo. Following an excursion to Lake Gregory, returning via the Tanami Track to The Alice. This is the completion of the trip. Vehicles require the usual well proven aftermarket modifications for outback travel and participants need to be psychologically prepared. You will be required to carry 250 litres of fuel and an exhaustive amount of spares including the capability two spare tyres/wheels. Food and water requirements will be at least 7 days between substantial resupply. Water conservation is also at a premium, however there may be an opportunity to have a bush shower from a well halfway through the Tanami. Note: This trip starts at Curtin Springs and stops at Alice Springs
