Real Desert Adventures
Adelaide to Alice Real Desert Adventure


Real Desert Adventures offers camping trips that take you out into the wild desert and out of your comfort zone.


Starts: Adelaide SA, Australia
Ends: Alice Springs NT 0870, Australia

We explore some of the most exciting, isolated and stunning places on earth, such as: Flinders Ranges, Lake Eyre, Coober Pedy, Kings Canyon, Uluru, Kata Tjuta and much more.

We become like family on our Real Desert Adventures; everyone muscles in and works together, collecting firewood and preparing/cooking meals around the campfire at night. And remember there are NO HOTELS. We sleep in the REAL Australian way in our SWAGS, looking up at the stars.
