"The Larapinta Trail"

Roger Thornton is a keen bushwalker, who in the past has walked the Inca Trail, the Kokoda Track and, a couple of years ago, the Coast to Coast, from one side of England to the other. Brett Jones has extensive experience in search and rescue operations in New Zealand and was one of the rescue team that flew to the Antarctic after Air New Zealand Flight 901 crashed into Mt Erebus in November 1979.

Roger and Brett, with a group of 6 other bushwalkers, tackled the Larapinta Trail, in the Northern Territory, in July last year. This 231 km path through the West MacDonnell Ranges extends westward from Alice Springs to Mt Sonder, much loved as a painting subject by Albert Namatjira. Their talk will cover everything from logistics to landforms and, along the way, compare and contrast this walk with others experienced elsewhere.
