Larapinta - An Adventure through the West MacDonell Ranges


The 230km Larapinta Trail from end-to-end is a landscape lovers paradise and a photographers dream! Experience this ancient landscape through the vibrant images of Northern Territory photographer, Louise Denton. This is one of Australia's most spectacular treks, revealing more natural diversity than one would expect of this arid landscape. Hikers are rewarded every mountain climbed, with incredible vistas as the track snakes across rocky ridge-lines heading ever-closer to the distinguished outline of Mount Sonder in the east.

The trail zig-zags its way down into dramatic gullies and gorges, revealing hidden water supplies and fragile micro-habitats in an otherwise harsh environment. Following the mountains of the West MacDonnell Ranges has plenty to offer without the long-distance hike! Through pages of the book soak up the epitome of the Red Centre - outback colours, unique geological formations, deep blue waterholes and majestic ghost gums. Enjoy beautiful photography of Simpsons Gap, Ellery Creek, Ormiston Gorge, the Ochre Pits, Glen Helen and Redbank Gorge, which intersect the Larapinta hike.

The perfect keepsake, a reminder of this awesome part of Australia.

Sample Facebook Testimonials

Amanda Warriner - 5★ "I spent close to 3 hours in this store today, being fitted for and choosing a pack, and the staff are fantastic. Helpful, knowledgeable, patient and friendly - and I think I'm probably a fussy customer and I have difficulty finding packs that fit comfortably. Has to be my best experience in this kind of store to date."

Tom Brickhill - 5★ "My favourite outdoor shop in Sydney. This is where you go if you want to see gear stocked because of it's quality, not just because it's corporate overload has pumped out another 10,000 puffer jackets that need to be moved before next season. Knowledgeable staff that actually partake in trekking and travelling themselves. Definitely worth dropping in!"

Adam Jude Baus - 5★ "Always friendly, helpful staff with great knowledge. Great range of good quality products (nothing really low end) including Australian/NZ brands e.g. Wilderness Equipment, One Planet and Aarn. Never had a fuss with exchanging unused gear within the 2 week period."
