Date: Dates to be advised
Cost: $3250 per vehicle

This iconic 12-day desert adventure enables you to traverse the Great Central Road from Perth to Alice Springs by 4WD - independent but not alone!

Join us on on an exciting self-drive, self-catering expedition travelling in a small convoy led by an expert guide.


Join us as we traverse the famous Great Central Road which stretches west to east across the Aussie Outback through desert country. Together we'll explore such spectacular destinations as Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Kings Canyon, Finke River, Palm Valley, the East and West Macdonnell Ranges and many other areas accessible only by 4WD.

The tour is a nature-based adventure in which clients drive their own or hired 4WD vehicles & travel in a small convoy from Perth on the west coast to Alice Springs in the Red Centre, led by your expert guide, Tour Guide of the Year, Jeremy Perks, Director of Global Gypsies.

No previous off-road experience is necessary to join this fabulous expedition. 4WD tuition is included along with camping fees and park entry fees & your experienced guide provides comprehensive explanations and information en-route via two-way radio. Vehicles must be robust & self-sufficient - minimum 5/maximum 10 places in the convoy. We'll help you plan your trip, hold a Pre-Departure Workshop & even give you suggested shopping & packing lists.

What a wonderful way to see the real Australia! Camping in the outback, admiring the magnificent starry night skies, getting back to nature, learning about the flora, fauna & the most ancient culture in the world & sharing all these magical experiences with a small group of like-minded travellers.
