Are you up for the Challenge?....

170,000 square kilometres of remote desert country, 1100 parallel sand dunes up to 30 metres high, monstrous clay pans and no fuel or water for over 500km – are you up for the challenge?

 

Let us guide you through this unique landscape to experience the heart of this country, feed your sense of adventure, fulfil a life-long ambition or take on a journey that will push you to your limits. 

 

Our desert-loving crew will be there to make your trip across the Simpson as easy as possible, with our well-equipped 4 x 4 support vehicles carting all the creature comforts you might need. 

 

With a fleet of impeccable bikes and full mechanical support, rest assured we’ll get you there (and back if that’s your aim!) as well as dishing up hearty meals, plentiful snacks, drinks, a warm shower, roaring campfires, quality camping gear and star-gazing like nowhere else in the world.  You take care of the riding, we’ll take care of the rest.

 

Across vast and varied terrain you’ll cover part of the (in)famous Finke Desert Race track, iconic outback pubs, a soak at Dalhousie Springs (36 degrees all year round!), cross 3 state borders including a visit to Poeppel Corner where NT, QLD & SA meet, giant sand dunes leading to the famous Big Red, and the outback village of Birdsville itself.  See wild camels, desert donkeys, birds of prey and the tracks of critters who only venture out at night.

 

Perhaps you’ve got a partner or friend who doesn't ride but would still love to come along? We've got you covered. We can cater for up to three passengers who can 'tag along' and be part of the tour in our support vehicles where everything but the bike is included in the package!

We offer two choices of tours across the desert;

 

The Big Red Bash Tour

or

The Double Crossing Tour

Double Crossing Tour

ultimate%20simpson%20v2%20transparent%20red%20optimised_edited.png

For those riders who are experienced and are looking for that extra challenge, we've put together a ride where you'll have the opportunity to cross the desert both ways within seven days!

Starting and finishing in Alice Springs, we'll utilise multiple support vehicles to allow you to maintain a higher pace, but still give you time to enjoy all the points of interest along the way...plus you’ll have the bragging rights to say that you’ve crossed it in both directions!

You'll get to cross the Simpson to Birdsville via the remote Madigan line and then come back across via the famous French line.

This tour will be limited to just 12 spots for riders on our hire bikes, along with a further 3 positions for non-riders in the support vehicles.
