This short but adventure-filled trip gives you an opportunity to experience the beautiful landscapes of Central Australia while learning about the local indigenous Aboriginal tribes.
This operator is also ROC Tourism Accredited. The Respecting Our Culture (ROC) Program is a tourism industry development tool designed by Aboriginal Tourism Australia (ATA) and administered by Ecotourism Australia. The ROC program was produced through an extensive and ongoing national consultation by ATA with Indigenous communities, industry stakeholders and tourism operators. ROC embraces national accreditation standards to ensure tourism experiences meet customer expectations in a professional and sustainable way. It also encourages the industry to operate with respect for Indigenous cultural heritage.
For accommodations, we stay in permanent tented sites, which are often leased from local land owners. This supports the local community and gives them a steady source of income. While in national parks, we inform our passengers about the importance of staying to the trail as not to disturb the fragile rock formations. We also collect any litter we see along the way.
We travel in purpose-built vehicles that are the most modern, energy efficient vehicles currently operating in the region. We are actively reducing carbon emissions and their negative impact on the environment. The Isuzu 500 series engine produces 2090kg less CO² than the 2006 model. As an example, when this is multiplied by six vehicles per year at 60,000km per year the result is approximately 12 tons less CO² per year. © Copyright images: Jeremy Simons, Samantha Ohlsen & Sarah Howarth.
