It is essential for all walkers during the hotter months to carry 3 litres of water — iced water is available to top up bottles on board the coach. Please note — flights on Day 1 should arrive no later than 13:30. Due to the late arrival into Alice Springs on the final day, a post-night will be required. Please call for details and prices.
