Touring Oombullgurri, Kalumburu, Ballangarra Country...
Over the tour you will traverse the 400 kilometre Carson River Track, leaving behind the Gibb River Road near Home Valley Station and emerging again at Kalumburu.
The Carson River Track Tag-a-Long Tour is a journey of understanding. As you travel through this ancient land inhabited by our Indigenous people for many thousands of years you will be immersed in culture! You will also be exposed to the stories of all those who have passed this way before you. You will learn about the history, culture, pioneers and military significance of this remote place.
Every day you will move forward on your journey and this will involve some very serious 4WDriving over what Ronald Morgan, the lead guide describes as a goat track. Each day may involve up to 5 hours of driving, opprtunity for fishing, photography, relaxing & much more.
Trips are rated A through to E, with A meaning only suited to vehicles with an extreme level of off-road modification and E meaning perfectly suited for all types of 4WD vehicles.
Gibb River Rd: D - these days this is an easy trip for any moderately equipped 4WD.
Purnululu: C - the remote nature of the area coupled with the need to be totally self-sufficient earns this track C.
Kalumburu: B - the tyranny of distance and possible atrocious road conditions make this a trip for the more experienced off-road adventurer.
Tablelands Track: A - this is as hard as it gets, remote, difficult and dangerous; this track is not for the inexperienced.
