Explore the Simpson Desert and the deserts of the Lake Eyre basin are unlike any other in Australia. The sediments that flow down the great river systems of the Diamantina and Cooper are raised by the wind and dumped into vast longitudinal sand dunes.

 

They hold less vegetation than the Western Deserts, interspersed with its salt lakes, clay pans and spinifex. In places, there are gidgee groves in the interdunal corridors, gnarled like ancient olive trees. Amid all this beauty is one of the toughest four-wheel drive challenges on the planet. But this expedition is far more than just the Simpson Desert.

 

We travel the historic Birdsville Tracks, rich in Aboriginal and European heritage. We explore lesser-known gorges in the Flinders Ranges, and we trek north from Dalhousie to historic Old Andado Station.

 

Diamantina has been operating expeditions to the Simpson Desert and Lake Eyre Basin since 1990. We have crossed the desert over 100 times, along with every track, and off track as well. With this experience, we have designed what we believe is the best Simpson desert expedition.
