Getting to us

We are currently operating in the Lake Torrens Region just north of Port Augusta. We are 3 hours drive north of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia and a little over 20 mins drive north of Port Augusta, the cross-roads city of Australia.

There are a number of ways to get to us:

1. You drive to trekking base camp

All roads are suitable for two wheel drive vehicles (with care and with vehicle clearance), so driving yourself is an easy option. Port Augusta exists on the main bitumen "Stuart Highways" running north-south and east-west across Australia. Our trekking base camp is 20mins easy drive time from Port Augusta (see map).

2. Use our 4WD transit service

If you're not driving yourself, simply make your way to Port Augusta via air (ex Adelaide), bus or rail, and we'll organise your 4WD transit to our trekking base camp and return (add $45/head). We'll provide specific details with your booking confirmation. There is nothing to it.

In brief (departing Thursdays, 5 days):

Wednesday - you should arrive Port Augusta
Thursday - 2.30pm depart Port Augusta to trekking base camp via transit vehicle, arrive late afternoon, depart with camels next day.
Friday AM to Monday noon - "Explore the Outback camel safari"
Monday (noon) - return Port Augusta via transit vehicle

In brief (departing Mondays, 4 days):

Sunday - you should arrive Port Augusta
Monday - 10am depart Port Augusta to trekking base camp via transit vehicle, depart with camels after lunch
Monday noon to Thursday PM - "Explore the Outback camel safari"
Thursday (noon) - return Port Augusta via transit vehicle

3. Or...

Alternatively have a look at the Wayward Bus travel option below. This option can bring you to Port Augusta.
You can also travel to Port Augusta from Alice Springs on a Tuesday via Heading Bush.
Groovy Grape can get you to Port Augusta from Alice on a Saturday or a Wednesday, or to Port Augusta from Adelaide on a Saturday.

 

So, contact us to make a booking and before you know it you'll be sitting atop a camel and riding off into the distance.
