Join an outback tag-along tour

Tuesday, 12th September, 2017

Forget five-star dining, try stars in the sky instead.

PERTH-based operator Global Gypsies has joined forces with RAC Travel to create the perfect 4WD introductory self-drive adventure.

On the five-day escorted and catered 4WD expedition along the historic Holland Track in the south-east of Western Australia, participants will drive their own or hired 4WDs and travel in a small convoy led by an expert guide.

In the goldrush days, prospectors seeking their fortune who arrived in Albany by ship had to trudge their way to the goldfields on foot.

The 500km Holland Track was cut through virgin bush in 1893 by sandalwooder John Holland. Today the resurrected track is a favourite of four-wheel-drivers and nature lovers.

The tour, from November 16-20, will include commentary on the track's history, 4WD tuition if needed, a bush skills seminar and an inspiring visit to the grave of John Holland's young wife, the first European woman to travel the track.

It will be fully catered by an experienced Safari Hostess with 1000-star al-fresco meals.

The leisurely mini-adventure is ideal for travellers who want to explore the outback - independent but not alone - improve their 4WD skills or "test drive" the tag-along experience.

Participants can BYO or hire 4WD vehicles, two-way radios, camper trailers or camping gear. Convoy numbers are strictly limited.

The price for self-drivers is $852 per person or $750 for RAC members. Price for passengers in the escort vehicle is $1000 per person (RAC members $900) including transport, food and camping gear.
