Adventure and Outdoors Tours

The Artist Expedition Society is a tour company and living artwork born from a desire to share experiences in nature and the outdoors, based in Central Australia.

Our mission is to provide space to consider our relationship to place, nature, and designed environments. Our trips encourage you to apply your own creative practice to remote environments.


Join us for a watercolour painting workshop at Simpsons Gap at sunset.

This evening adventure takes place just 18kms outside of Alice Springs at Simpsons Gap, a natural wonder that is not to be missed. This unique destination explodes with colour as the sun sets, making it is the perfect spot to paint with watercolours!

In this painting class, you will learn the basics of watercolour painting in a series of exercises designed to help you to loosen up and have fun. Fun facts about the flora and fauna will deepen the meaning of the series of paintings you make, which you can take home to remind you of this unique landscape.

Watch the red rock of the West MacDonnell Ranges turn a deeper red as the sun sets, hear an orchestra of birds sing from the tops of the river red gum trees, tune in to the peace of this special place which is an important spiritual site for the local Arrente Aboriginal people.

Seven days in the outback! Sleeping under the stars, cooking on a campfire, meeting Aboriginal artists and bushfood specialists, and MAKING ART!

We will road trip through the outback starting in Alice Springs heading west into a desert mountain range on Arrente Country, before heading down south to Luritja Country to explore Central Australia’s most breathtaking canyon. The highlight of this trip is Uluru, the spiritual heart of Australia. We will meet Anangu artists and take time to marvel at the awesome Uluru.
