The Painted Desert Tour

Discover the magic of the
painted desert.

Explore the Painted Desert in a comfortable air conditioned 4WD vehicle.

Departing every Saturday from Coober Pedy, join us for an expedition through the stunning Painted Desert in Outback South Australia. This one day tour takes you north on the Kempe Road, revealing the Moon Plains, pastoral country, and ultimately the breathtaking Arckaringa Hills. This mesmerising landscape, shaped over millions of years by ancient seas and erosion, boasts vibrant colours, majestic mesas, and unique geological formations.

Led by experienced guides, you'll have the opportunity to explore this remote and untouched terrain on foot, immersing yourself in its natural beauty and encountering diverse flora and fauna. Enjoy a delightful picnic lunch amidst the scenic hills, providing ample time to appreciate the surroundings and capture unforgettable moments.

As we journey back to Coober Pedy, marvel at the Breakaways country, where dramatic land formations contrast against the vast desert backdrop, creating a perfect finale to your adventure. Our intimate group excursions promise authenticity, camaraderie, and a profound connection to the rugged beauty of the Australian outback. 

Don't miss this chance to discover the magic of the Painted Desert with us.
