Great Desert Walks 2024
Be prepared for the real thing - walking and living in the Simpson Desert on a true wilderness experience.
Our treks begin where the roads stop - in fact if ever contemporary walking treks were described as 'off the beaten track' these would be it - there are no tracks or roads where we go and on most treks we are blazing a new path across the red dunes, alongside the inland river systems, or across vast gibber flats and desert claypans.
The Outback Camel Company has been walking in all of Australia's desert's since 1976 and we believe that packcamels are still the best way to explore our great deserts with the smallest environmental padprint possible.
Our camel team will enable you to experience the Outback in a way that you may never have thought
possible, reconnecting you to the landscape as you explore the Strzelecki and Sturt Stony Deserts.
We call it Desert Bushwalking.
Trekking with our amiable, charismatic camels offers an intimacy with the soul of the country that is completely
absent when travelling by vehicle, and allows a continuum of discovery,
which is important to understanding the heart of this ancient land.
REVISED 2024 TREK SCHEDULE RELEASED
Due to the impending and widespread flooding in the eastern Simpson Desert, we have had to transfer
our 2024 operations to the Strzelecki and Sturt Stony Deserts in South Australia.
Trek dates remain the same, and all treks will still begin and conclude in Birdsville
Sturt Stony Deserts
