Dust to Dust
People who love the outback and the desert can now choose a beautiful and peaceful remote area as their final resting place thanks to our unique service.
"Dust to Dust" enables nature-lovers to have their ashes scattered in the Australian outback or in a remote desert area at a special, highly personalised private ceremony.
Global Gypsies has been running tours into the Australian outback for over two decades. During that time, we have performed several ash-scattering services in tranquil and picturesque locations as a favour to friends and clients. We have also received numerous requests for this unusual service and we are pleased to also be able to offer it to a wider audience.
One of Australia's most respected outback guides, Global Gypsies' Director and former Tour Guide of the Year, Jeremy Perks, will conduct the ceremony. He will ensure the service is undertaken with dignity, respect and sensitivity for any individual requests. The ceremony can be extremely simple, or it can include special music or wording and be photographed or videod for relatives if desired. (Live-streaming is also possible in areas which have wifi reception, but please be aware that this is not available in most outback locations).
"Dust to Dust" is a dignified, caring way to provide peace of mind to people who genuinely love nature and the Australian bush. The service has particular appeal to people who have fond memories of time spent in the desert, or to those who always wanted to explore the outback but never had the opportunity to do so. It is a beautiful way to travel forever in the peaceful tranquility of this ancient, timeless land.

Says Jeremy, "So many people who live in the city have an affinity and a deep connection with the desert and the outback and would like to make it their final resting place. However, it can be extremely difficult to arrange for someone to scatter your ashes there. We visit some of the most beautiful and remote places in Australia several times a year and would feel privileged to fulfill this last wish for people who love the outback and the desert as much as we do."
