This is the best way to see Central Australia, leave the Grey Nomads behind and go walking! The ancient landscapes and vivid colours are stunning. The small groups and wonderful staff with Trek Larapinta make for a memorable trip. Highly recommended.More

when I did the walk 6 or 7 years ago I did it in 12 days and was able to fill up with water each evening bar one. This meant carrying water for two days. Is it still the same, or has an additional water tank been installed? IIt would be great to know I could get to water at the end of every day.

Yes, you can get water but not necessarily tank water, we took a filter and used water from Billabongs. But tank water is available most days
