About Larapinta

The Larapinta Trail was the brainchild of Alan Ginns, who was a National Park planner with the Conservation Commission of the NT in Alice Springs from 1982 to 1996. The Larapinta trail was a key component of the concept for the West MacDonnell National Park, also one of Ginns’ initiatives.

In the 1980s the Northern Territory’s national parks were small, disconnected reserves along the West MacDonnell Ranges.

That all changed when Alan Ginns — a senior planner from the NT conservation commission — was tasked with putting together a proposal to link the parks using federal funding. In 1988 the Larapinta Trail was born.

Ranked as one of the planet’s top 20 treks, the Larapinta Trail is a 231-kilometre path that follows the rocky spine of the West MacDonnell Ranges from Alice Springs Telegraph Station to Mount Sonder.

The long walk in the desert A demanding track carved out of the landscape with the help of prison labour, the Larapinta Trail has come a long way from its humble yet harsh beginnings.

The Larapinta Trails 12 sections have been opened progressively since 1989.

The entire track was officially opened in 2002. The Larapinta Trail planners strove to make the most of the terrain and its spectacular viewpoints. The track spends roughly equal time in each of the West Macs’ main components, the Chewings Range and, more or less parallel to the south, the Heavitree Range.

Throughout the walk, views from one range are greatly enhanced by the proximity of the other. The ranges are linked by the 31 km Section 6, which crosses the Alice Valley. The Larapinta trail began as an idea to link, via walking tracks, the popular visitor areas in the west MacDonnell Ranges such as Simpsons Gap, Standley Chasm and Ellery Creek. These places are roughly one to two days apart and have vehicle access, so the idea was that the trail could be done either as a series of shorter walks, or as a multi-day epic.

 

Ian and Jenny Page

The Larapinta Trail scenery was spectacular,
The campsites and tent accommodation were great and comfy.
The food was terrific, plenty of it, home cooked meals, fresh fruit, salads and plenty of variety.
This was a really great experience; we did something we had never done before walking in the dark by headtorch to the summit of Mt Sonder along the Larapinta Trail.
We have trekked with Wayne at Kokoda Spirit and Wild Spirit adventures before and once again it was a first-class operation.

We highly recommend getting out there and trek the Larapinta Trail.

Maree Heran

Trekking the Larapinta Trail and being immersed in nature was life changing.
The scenery, flora and fauna were beautiful.
It was a fantastic experience. Thank you to Wayne and the team at Kokoda Spirit and Wild Spirit Adventures for such a wonderful trip.

Victoria Horsnby

The biggest thing I got out of walking the Larapinta Trail was the education. It started something in me to find out more about indigenous culture and our history.
I never realised the history of the country that we were walking on.

It has been an amazing experience.

Rusty Jones

Trekking the Larapinta Trail was an emotional and empowering experience. The scenery was spectacular. Great camp sites and food. It was a real eye opener about the culture and how the indigenous groups live off the land and how they took care of their country. I highly recommend trekking with Wild Spirit Adventures.

Their Guides knowledge was brilliant.

Julie Jones

Walking the Larapinta Trail has given me a great sense of community. It was fantastic to be part of such a great group. The scenery was spectacular and the walking challenging but achievable. I loved hearing the history and culture of the place. It was such a wonderful experience.

I highly recommend trekking with Wild Spirit Adventures.

Suzy Q

This was such a great experience trekking the Larapinta Trail. The people, the scenery, the experience, the camping and the food was amazing.

Spending time at the waterholes at the end of the day was amazing as was sitting around the campfire reflecting on the days adventure.

Sylvia

I recently did the Larapinta trail with Kokoda spirit and couldn’t have been happier with it. Everything was organised and I felt very relaxed and safe at all times. The camp was outstanding, and the food was delicious. I will definitely be back and do the track again.

Thanks to everyone who made this trip such a success.
