The Durack journey takes them through remote natural landscapes, rugged ranges, wild rivers and fresh water gorges. Along the way, they get to glimpse traditional Aboriginal life and gain an appreciation of the challenges encountered by explorers and pioneers in what remains one of Australia’s last frontiers.
They begin the trek at the Chamberlain River and wind their way upstream, between the Elgee Cliffs and the Durack Range for around 45 kilometres. The second half of the trek takes them out of the Durack, into the Saw Ranges, through the Dunham River and finishes in the beautiful Speewah valley.
The Durack is one of their more challenging walks and requires a reasonable to good level of fitness. They will be walking in varying terrain carrying up to 15 to 20 kilogram packs over 85 kilometres over eight days. This requires good preparation in terms of fitness as well as the gear.
