August 2021 UPDATE -: Due to the current Covid-19 lockdowns Mick and I have been forced to cancel the remaining tour for 2021. We will keep an eye out and try and make some sort of plan by the end of the year in regard to tours for 2022. We send our hearty thanks to all of you who have kept in touch with us and we very much hope to be able to fulfil our plans for next year. We hope to back in the bush with you in 2022!

Stay safe, everyone


Have you ever wanted to experience the desert country written about by the surveyor Len Beadell?
Armed with information from within the family, Connie Sue Beadell will give you the true picture of what Len and his road-making crew, the "Gunbarrel Road Construction Party", got up to in the 50's & 60's.
Have you ever wondered how it was possible to survive in the desert for months on end with only camels for transport?
Connie's husband Mick will fascinate you with tales of how the early explorers did it and what they discovered.
We will show you plants & trees, living creatures and Aboriginal history, things that are missed when schedules are tight.
If you want to learn the correct way to repair a tyre Mick will show you how in detail.
Experience the desert with like-minded people, with the added confidence of support and help should anything go wrong.
