This 4WD trek begins with Australian history explored via sections of the Burke and Wills ill-fated journey through the wasteland of North East, South Australia.
On commencing the Simpson Desert 4WD adventure tour, the first thing that strikes you about this section of the Australian Outback is the endless red sand dunes that run North & South, across the track, as we travel west.
There are no city lights to reflect in the sky, and the only night light is the moon, the silence is so complete - you won't ever want to go back to the city bustle again.
If the season is right, you may be rewarded with the unforgettable sight of brilliant flowers that lay like a tapestry on the red background.
The low salt pans in the Simpson Desert Conservation Park SA. produce mirages of shimmering beauty, and the area teems with Australian Outback wild life.
Trek the remote corners where the Australian states of South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory meet.
There is a tale of explorers long gone, with Australian history revisited as the 4WD tour continues west. See the evidence of Australian outback station life overtaken by progress.
Travel over longer distances became easier as the modern age took over,and all that remains are tumble down homesteads, and long disused rail sidings.
