With 20 years in Northern Territory tourism and four wheel  driving experience, John Stafford of Alice Springs Expeditions provides guests with the ultimate in comfort and safety, with quality vehicles and equipment. His specialised, local knowledge and friendly, professional approach ensures 100% happy campers. 


Welcoming Host

Drawing from her own experience of travel in the region with her current artistic practice and career as a travel professional, Ingrid Bowen thrives on accompanying art & landscape adventures, or designing a bespoke itinerary for your group. 


Small Groups

Operating in a small group gives us the flexibility to accommodate conditions and the interests of the group. Our travellers are generally friendly, interested and respectful, wanting to explore in good company with an adventurous spirit.


Generous Schedule

Our schedule is generous in order to be able to stop, look & explore along the way. Discuss the landscape and cultural points of interest, star gaze, take time to make art and contemplate your surroundings. We aim to show you the highlights without rushing.


Get Off The Grid

Feel the benefits of being off grid and fully immersed in nature during the camping component. Our trailer has basic bathroom facilities, your tent will be comfortable and warm. Meals are usually fireside or picnic style. 


Project Time

Most days there will be time to spend on your own project - be it painting, sketching, reading, photography, writing, or just relaxing! You don't have to be an artist to join in, but there is room for art-making if you wish. 


Go With The Flow...

Plans may need to adapt due to weather or cultural events, and safety is paramount. Our trips aren't designed to physically demanding, but you do need to be up for plenty of outdoors adventure.
