Are you up for the Challenge?....

The Simpson Desert - over 170,000 square km's of vast open space, the largest parallel sand dune desert in the world and one of the most remote places in Australia. It is a unique landscape that captures your imagination, but this is no place for the faint hearted.....

Crossing the Simpson is a 'must do' for anyone that has adventure in their heart. Outback Motorcycle Adventures is offering you the opportunity to be part of something special and experience a trip that you'll remember for a lifetime. This is the chance for you to discover your limits - join us and conquer over 1100 sand dunes in the mighty Simpson desert!

We offer premium quality tours with back-up provided by our fully customised Isuzu 4x4 support truck. Ride all day, enjoy a warm shower each evening and then sit back and relax around a roaring campfire under an endless night sky.  

You'll see and experience places of interest such as;

  • Finke Desert Race Track - you can even ride along some of the track!

  • Mt Dare - The first/last stop on the Western edge of the Simpson.

  • Dalhousie Springs - swim in this large natural spring with a constant water temperature of 36c.

  • Poeppels Corner - the intersection of 3 states (Queensland, South Australia and The Northern Territory)

  • Big Red - the biggest sand dune in the desert!

  • Birdsville - an Iconic town on the Eastern edge of the Simpson.

What better way to cross the desert than on one of our current model KTM EXC-F's? Ride the best bike on the market which has been set up so you can ride to the best of your ability.

Have you got a partner or friend that 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 'ride along' and be part of the tour in our support vehicle.

In 2021, we are excited to offer two choices of tours across the desert;

 

The Big Red Bash Tour

or

The Double Crossing Tour 

Please see below for all the details!

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!

This tour will be limited to just 10 spots for riders on our hire bikes, along with a further 4 positions if you'd like to bring your own bike. We'll also have 3 spots for non-riders in the support vehicles.

There will only be one of these tours on offer for 2021 so don't miss out!
