Highly recommend Trek Tours Australia if you're planning to trek the Larapinta. The food was amazing and so much better than what I had expected. The guides - Annie, Kenna, Stella and Ella, are very knowledgeable and experienced. They provided a unique and unforgettable adventure....More

Wonderful trip.The planning was perfect. The camps very comfortable and well laid out. The food was marvellous in quantity and quantity. But the most awesome aspect was the guides- gorgeous, knowledgeable, patient, caring, generous and highly professional. Loved it all really.

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
