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.

ALL OTHER TRAILHEADS & LOCATIONS
We can provide food drops to most other trailheads, intermediate points and anywhere else in between depending on your trek package. Please note that apart from Ormiston Gorge, Ellery Creek South and Standley Chasm, every other trailhead location does not offer secure lockable facilities. Therefore food drops at the locations below are either cached in the bush or placed in the shelter cupboards.
