Optional Upgrade – Alice Springs: Pyndan Camel Tracks

Your experienced guide will lead you into White Gums Station to enjoy sweeping outback views, get up close to the MacDonnell Ranges and make friends with your gentle camel team. What better vantage point than from the top of a camel to catch sight of kangaroos and other native wildlife? Feel the magic and serenity as you settle into 45-60 minute ride aboard our ‘ships of the desert’, the same mode of transport used by Australian outback settlers.

Visit the ‘Camel Lounge’ to learn about these adorable creatures and browse a range of souvenirs. Chat with friendly ‘cameleers’ about the history of camels in Central Australia and camel farm life. Guests are served a chilled drink and light canapés featuring outback bush flavours including homemade humus wattle seed dip or bush tomato tapenade with crackers and more.
