Alice Springs Camel Tour image
Join our one-hour camel tour during your stay in Alice Springs. Camel rides in Alice Springs are a great family-friendly activity. This gentle camel ride starts from the camel farm at Pyndan Camel Tracks located 20-minutes by road from Alice Springs. Once on the back of your camel, your experienced guide will lead you into White Gums Station following a flat clay track along an avenue of Iron Bark and Mulga trees before climbing a slight incline for sweeping views across the MacDonell Ranges– a great place for a photo on your camel. Along the way, spot kangaroos, wallabies, birds and other wildlife. This is a great experience for ages. Free transfers from outside your hotel's reception departs 30 minutes prior to tour.
Riding a camel against the backdrop of the beautiful Western MacDonnell Ranges is a signature Australian Red Centre experience. Choose from an afternoon or sunset one-hour camel tour, for a gentle ride to the scenic Temple Bar Gap lookout that offers sweeping views across the desert landscape.

What better vantage point than from the top of a camel. You’ll see kangaroos, wallabies, birds and other wildlife as you experience the true beauty of the outback. Throughout the ride you’ll learn about the history of camels in Australia from your experienced guide. This is an unforgettable experience, a highlight of any stay in Alice Springs.

Pyndan Camel Tracks is located approximately 20 minutes by road from the town of Alice Springs. You can make your own way there or choose to include roundtrip transport from your Alice Springs accommodation.

We absolutely loved this camel ride !

My mother was a bit afraid before doing it, so we told the camelers who gave us a quiet camel, Sally. Mum does not regret doing the ride and is not afraid anymore !

Camels go through the landscape, MacDonnell Ranges are in the close background : great views !

Amazing experience to be on the back of a camel as part of a caravan. The lady who led camels was very kind and stopped to take pictures of us on top of camels as well as group photos. We loved Sally and the other camels.

Pick-up and drop-off at the hotel were also very appreciated.

An experience we recommend to immerse yourself in the desert at a local animal's pace !

Type of visit : family (adults)

Great time riding the camels through the desert, easy pickup and went well. Would have loved to do the sunset tour but it didn't work with my schedule.

This was one of the best things we've done in Australia. We did a sunset camel tour and saw a lot of wallabies while out on the camels.
The views of the red desert and mcdonnell ranges is jaw dropping.
The ranch has a hilarious talking parrot who says hello to you every time you walk past.

I forgot to review this one as well, apparently. But our sunset camel ride was a total blast -- definitely a memorable experience and one of the highlights of our stay in Alice Springs.

We did the sunset ride. Well worth it especially if you have kids with you. Do remember to take insect spray and enjoy yourself
