LARAPINTA TRAIL FOOD DROPS
LTTS offers food drops to most locations along the Larapinta Trail and areas of Tjoritja/West MacDonnell Ranges NP. All of our food drops include the hire of standard 50lt containers which are clearly marked for each drop.
Food drops can only be ordered as part of a transfer or trek package
All containers used for food drops and resupply are now subject to our own strict procedures to ensure the containers are COVID-19 safe when they are delivered to you. The containers are thoroughly cleaned with TGA approved antibacterial agents before and after each use, no exceptions.

SECURE STORE ROOM FOOD DROPS POINTS
Food drops can be dropped off and locked away in the official food storage points or at designated secure areas at private facilities. The storage containers remain at these locations until you arrive to collect or access them.
*All food drop fees include container hire, container drop off to your accommodation and collection from your accommodation as well as the placement of your container at the food drop point on the trail.
You can order food drops when you book online.
As of July 2018 Ormiston Gorge and Ellery Creek Storerooms now have CCTV operating 24/7. CCTV includes low light/infra red for night monitoring.
ALL OTHER TRAILHEADS & LOCATIONS
We can carry out food drops to most other trailheads and intermediate points depending on your trek package. Please note that apart from Ormiston Gorge, Ellery Creek and Standley Chasm, every other trailhead location does not offer secure lockable facilities and is therefore cached in the bush.
