Mother Child Trip Central Australia June 2024

June 22 - June 25


Mother Child Trip

Central Australia 

Saturday 22 June – Tuesday 25 June 2024

Highlights of the Larapinta Trail, a quintessential outback experience, strengthen bond with your child


Imagine yourself with your child standing on the top of a mountain looking around at the ancient landscape of lifted and folded sandstone and quartzite, spinifex-covered crumpled hills, and red cliffs contrasted with ghost gums and blue sky. You did this together. You are both speechless with awe.

You sleep soundly in swags after admiring the stars and contemplating the universe. Nutritious food nourishes you both. Your love of learning is satisfied by flora and fauna, local geology, and cultural practices. Fireside chats and intentional dialogue increase awareness and connection.

You both slow down to nature’s frequency, find presence, and rediscover joy. There is laughter and fun getting to know others through shared experiences. The simplicity allows clarity on what’s important. They realise they are capable of so much more. There is much LOVE.

“The trip was so thoughtfully planned by you and your team George. It was so amazingly restorative to turn up and have everything organised enabling us all to just relax and catch up with great friends. The food was delicious and healthy, the camp was private and picturesque, the walk was challenging enough for some and achievable for others. The opportunity to be out in remote terrain without having to plan was such an amazing privilege that I will cherish forever.”

“You and your family are so inspirational George. I hope you feel so proud of the unforgettable experience you created for all of us. Thank you again for all of your care and hard work.”
