Start Planning for 2010!!! The Great Australian Outback Cattle Drive is on the move in 2010 and selling out fast!
Five hundred head of cattle, three hundred and ninety kilometres of desert track, and a swag of adventure stories along one of the most evocative desert trails in Australia - the Oodnadatta Track.
This unique and rewarding travel experience offers people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds the opportunity to re-live the glory years of Australia's outback cattle drovers by riding alongside real working people, moving a real herd through real outback wilderness.
From Oodnadatta to Marree riders will slowly traverse a haunting and remarkable desert landscape, one of stony plains and cresting dunes, ancient uplifts and bubbling springs, dazzling salt lakes and parched river beds. At night, share stories around the campfire and stay in superior tent accommodations with dining and bathroom facilities on site.
Cattle Drive guests will come to know and love their horses, each chosen to match their riding abilities. First-timers will have the rare opportunity of learning from people who have literally lived in the saddle, while experienced riders will relish the chance to exchange stories and insights with some of Australia's greatest horsemen and women.
