The Durack journey takes us through remote natural landscapes, rugged ranges, wild rivers and fresh water gorges. Along the way we get to glimpse traditional Aboriginal life and gain an appreciation of the challenges encountered by explorers and pioneers in what remains one of Australia’s last frontiers.
We begin the trek at the Chamberlain River and wind our way upstream, between the Elgee Cliffs and the Durack Range for around 45kms. The second half of the trek takes us out of the Durack, into the Saw Ranges, through the Dunham River and finishes in the beautiful Speewah valley.
