Larapinta Trek & Parrtjima Festival in Light

Join Cheryl Ryan on this amazing and scenic hike on the Larapinta Trek. On this package you will explore the West MacDonnell Ranges that inspired Albert Namatjira’s award winning artwork. You will explore the culture, the history, the dreamtime and explore its wonders.

On this adventure we trek from the far western edge of the Larapinta Trail, heading east. We trek in this direction for two main reasons; firstly comfort – we walk with the afternoon sun at our backs, not in our faces, as the desert sun can be extreme. Secondly the majority of the traffic on the Larapinta Trail will be heading in the opposite direction, so we don’t get caught up around other groups.

Our Trek will finish back in Alice Springs where for the next two days we will enjoy the Parrtjima Festival of Light.

The 2022 theme is ‘Sky Country’, with a focus on our place in the universe, and an emphasis on the elements of sky, air and wind.

Reading the sky helps Aboriginal people understand their place on Country. They’ve long used the heavens above to plan their harvest and hunting seasons, and share stories, which are retold from generation to generation.

‘Sky Country’ offers a new way to look at the world and sparks our curiosity. The Parrtjima program will tell the story of sky, air and wind through light shows, installations, art, music, talks, films, workshops and performance.

Join us and experience a timeless, living culture expressed in fresh, creative ways in the heart of Australia.

Dates: 8-17 April
