Tag-Along and Guided 4WD Adventures in the Red Centre

If you’ve ever wanted to try out a 4WD adventure in the desert, but maybe you don’t have the experience or desire to do it on your own, then a tag-along or guided 4X4 adventure might be perfect for you.

There are a number of different operators in the Red Centre, all with great depths of experience & a guarantee of an exhilarating trip you won’t soon forget. Check out some of our recommended operators below and book your 4WD adventure today.


Central Australia Tag Along Tours

If you’re not sure about a multi-day 4WD tour, you’ll want to check out some of the shorter options offered by Central Australia Tag Along Tours. These guys offer 1 day tours at places like Owen Springs, Rainbow Valley and Palm Valley, all the way up to 4 day tours to places like Finke Gorge National Park and the excellent Gold Rush & Ruby Tour. Unlike the longer tagalong tours, these shorter trips don’t provide bedding or sleep equipment, or food & water and you are required to have your own vehicle - so be prepared!

Tours start from $250 per vehicle (2 people) and go up to $800 per vehicle, depending on which tour you choose. There are additional costs for extra adults and/or children.

Alice Springs Expeditions

For something a little more tailored to you, Alice Springs Expeditions offers bespoke expeditions which allow you to map your own itinerary - with the guidance of course from an expert. If you want to make your own trip, you’ll need to contact the company for a specific quote. But if you’re ok with something already set up, there are three short tours available; Simpson Desert Dunes Trek, Finke Gorge Experiences, and the East MacDonnell Ranges Adventure all of which come with varying durations depending on how adventurous you are. Prices here start as low as $360 per adult and $180 per child, and go up depending on which tour you want to go for.
