What happens on a sunset camel ride?
Enjoy a camel ride as the sun sets against the MacDonnell Ranges, a signature Red Centre experience, perfect for all ages. Make friends with your gentle camel during the one-hour tour and learn fun camel facts from your expert guide.
Catch sight of native animals and unwind to desert tranquility. Choose the sunset ride to see the colours of the ranges deepen to a glowing red and the sky shift from cobalt blue to orange pink. What better vantage point than from the top of a camel. Great photo opportunities.
Chat with our friendly camel team about the long history of cameleering in Central Australia, their incredible experiences of catching wild camels in the Simpson Desert, walking solo through the desert with only camels for company, and every day life on an outback camel farm. Visit our camel themed museum and souvenirs. Light refreshments supplied after the sunset camel ride. Free transfers or self drive.
