A. We provide swags to all our passengers. A swag is a traditional outback bed, you will be provided with
one on your tour. It’s a soft mattress with a canvas cover. You still use your sleeping bag and pillow inside
the swag, but the swag provides you with extra protection from the elements. It also means you don’t have
to use a tent, although there is always one available to you. If you don’t want to use a swag, some people
simply take the mattress from inside the swag to put in their tent.

A.Yes and no. When we are on the road there are roadhouses and rest stops with toilets, which you can
use. Also, when we stay at stations you will have access too hot showers and flushing toilets, however most
campsites have little or no facilities. When we bush camp there are also no facilities. On our tours we are
swimming most days (without soap or shampoo), so a refreshing swim should sort you out

Our tours aim to get you off the beaten track and into the remote gorges, waterholes and rock art sites. In
order to do this, you will be required to hike for several kilometres a day and occasionally swim and climb
(swimming is not essential). You’ll be walking on well-trodden paths as well as rocky, dry creek beds and
rough trails.
What is typically considered the hardest part of the tour is the walk to El Questro gorge; this involves
climbing over large boulders and at one point climbing up a rock surface. This is the most difficult activity of
the entire tour. The difficult section starts about halfway along the walk into the gorge, so for those who
don’t feel confident going the whole way, they can stay at the halfway swimming hole and rest.
You will need to carry the water you need for each walk or hike (we recommend a 2 litre or two 1 litre water
bottles) in your day bag. If you are generally healthy and can walk around 8 kilometres a day, our tours are
likely to be suitable for you.
Most of the walks involving walking in and then returning via the same route back to the truck. This means
that if you can no longer continue and would prefer not to go the whole way, you may be able to relax at a
swimming hole on the track and the group can pick you up on their way back.
We do not recommend pregnant women travel on our tours; this is due to the risks involved with hiking on
uneven ground, and the fact that the roads are corrugated and bumpy which can affect unborn babies
