Walk the rugged red landscapes of the Australian outback on the Larapinta Trail.

The Larapinta Trail travels 223 km (140 mi) through the heart of Central Australia, covering some of the most spectacular ranges and gorges within the vast Australian outback desert. The deep red gorges and cool waterholes offer an oasis in a very hot and arid land. On the rugged rocky ridges, you can see all the way to far off ranges without any sign of human development.

Once you’ve completed the initial setup of the app, all of our trail guides work offline. They use your device’s internal GPS to display your current location and guide you along the route. Offline use includes access to the key features of the guide, including the map, elevation profile, waypoint list, and more.

Trusted Trail Data

All of the data for our routes is collected by trusted individuals and partners, and is kept meticulously up to date. The track of each trail includes side trails and alternate routes, along with key waypoints. Our apps also offer comprehensive town guides, helping you resupply and access other services quickly.

Built for Community

Stay informed about trail conditions ahead by reading other hikers’ waypoint comments, and let other hikers know about your experience by leaving your own comments. Keep your friends and family up to date by sharing your current location from a Google Maps link sent via email or text message.

Offline Maps

Our variety of offline map sets, optionally downloaded as part of the initial setup and accessible offline afterwards, can give you extra quality information such as topographic lines with elevation values and satellite imagery.

Detailed Waypoints

Waypoints are plotted on a map and elevation profile, and each includes its own detail page with photos and descriptions. Water waypoints offer the most up-to-date water information, gathered from trusted sources and checked by other users.

Tailored to You

Plan your day by letting the app calculate the distance to the next campsite, water source, or other waypoint. Not every hike is the same, and we know that. Create your own custom routes using our route builder tool.
