* Please note that Canning Stock Route tours will only be run if / when access permits are granted.

Sorry, this tour is fully booked;
please add your name to our wait list in case of cancellations. Thanks!

Let our expert guide lead you along "The Loneliest 4WD Track in the World" on a challenging 4WD outback tour in the safety of a small convoy... independent but not alone! Together, we'll explore this historic cattle route & the numerous wells which have been constructed along it. There will be time to take side trips to various points of interest & to relax & enjoy the surroundings. On some occasions we'll spend two nights in one camping area to give everyone a much-needed break and let us fully appreciate this wild and remote area.

The tour will begin in Wiluna & end in Halls Creek with award-winning Tour Guide & Global Gypsies Director, Jeremy Perks, leading the expedition. Under his expert guidance, we'll cross the Great Sandy Desert, the Little Sandy Desert and parts of the Gibson Desert & in 21 days, cover almost 2000 kms and traverse more than 1000 sand dunes. It will be harsh, tough and challenging, but what an amazing experience! The Canning is a fascinating track with more than a century of history & we'll bring the legends alive on this epic journey.

As we can't tow our catering trailer over all the sand dunes (unless we wanted to leave it there permanently!) the tour will be self-catering.

Included in the package are complimentary Welcome and Farewell Dinners, camping fees, the professional services of one of the best Tour Guides in WA who will provide information along the way about the places we visit & mechanical & 4WD assistance (Jeremy's a qualified mechanic & an accredited 4WD Trainer);  all the necessary permits; lots of fun activities such as guided walks, star-gazing evenings, bush poetry readings, camp oven cooking & more; plus a comprehensive Pre Departure Workshop and Pre Departure Kit to prepare you for your outback adventure.

Only robust & reliable 4WD vehicles will be allowed to participate (please note that if you are planning to hire a 4WD that most companies will not insure their vehicles to travel on the Canning. See our Home Page or Australian Tours Page for the contact details of our recommended supplier!).

For communication purposes, a vehicle-mounted two-way radio with externally mounted antenna is mandatory - BYO or hire one from us. We also strongly suggest a dune flag for each vehicle. You will be required to carry adequate supplies of water, food and fuel as we will need to be completely self-sufficient. Planning and preparation is extremely important & participants will be provided with more information well in advance.

For environmental and track sustainability reasons we will only take a limited number of vehicles and no camper trailers will be permitted. Sorry, no pets or children under 16. Please note that once we get on the Stock Route there are no showers, shops, cafés, hotels, medical or other facilities & that leaving the tour is not recommended (other than in emergencies).

What the clients say!

"Jeremy's knowledge of fauna & flora was exceptional & his reading of the history of the wells was fantastic. I learned so much about the Canning Stock Route & the history of WA on this adventure - it was an absolutely amazing experience!"

"On each tour I have done with Global Gypsies I have gained so much knowledge about four-wheel-driving, camping & the Australian Outback. Jeremy is the kindest, most knowledgeable, helpful, humble, experienced man & tour guide I have ever had the privilege of meeting. His knowledge is invaluable & I will always remember our times together. I very much look forward to the next trip!"
