The Larapinta Trail is regarded as one of Australia's premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges.
Discover the beauty of Central Australia and explore the mountains, valleys, rivers and desert landscapes of the Red Centre. Trek through picturesque landscape, sheltered gorges and stunning waterfalls and sleep under desert stars at night. Ascend Mount Sondor, one of the Northern Territories highest peaks as you trek one of Australia's most magnificent trails.
As part of this incredible – yet challenging – adventure, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world's oldest river systems.
By day, you will challenge yourself as you trek across the Red Centre, experiencing the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia's Indigenous people. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.
With every step you take, you will raise vital funds to help the Royal Flying Doctor Service reach the furthest corners and provide the finest care to those in rural and remote Australia that need it most.
