Book ahead to experience the outback as the original Australian explorers did on this camel tour of Alice Springs. As you listen to your guide's commentary while on the back of a camel, it’s easy to imagine what it was like for settlers hundreds of years ago to travel across the Australian Red Centre. Stop for photos against the backdrop of the MacDonnell Ranges and spot wallabies and kangaroos.

What to Expect

Ready yourself for pickup from your Alice Springs hotel at the time indicated upon booking, depending on which tour option you selected (morning, afternoon, or sunset). Or, self-drive to Pyndan Camel Tracks if you prefer.

There's no better vantage point to see the local wildlife without disturbing them than on the back of a camel. Keep your camera ready for up-close views of wildlife such as wallabies, kangaroos, and native birds on your gentle ride to the scenic Temple Bar Gap. Your guide helps you spot wildlife and teaches you about the history of camel use in Australia.

When the tour ends, you are returned to your Alice Springs hotel.

Sunset tour - highly recommended!

Our sunset camel tour was one of the highlights of our holiday to Central Australia. The colours of the sun setting over the West MacDonnell Range was spectacular. One hour was the perfect amount of time. Highly recommended!

Amazing evening in the desert

Unique experience riding a camel in the Alice Springs desert. The Sunset Tour was the perfect time of day to take in the changing scenery as the light changed. Our guide was helpful and made the whole trip very smooth.
