Larapinta Trail food drops

You can store food at various points along the Larapinta Trail. Most walkers who finish the entire 223km trail store food to eat along the way.

How to organise a food drop

You can leave food in storage rooms at Ellery Creek and Ormiston Gorge. Get a key from the Tourism Central Australia visitor centre

You will need to pay a deposit of $50, refundable when the key is returned.

 A non-refundable fee of $10 will be charged by Tourism Central Australia to cover costs.

If you are dropping food somewhere else, make sure it is hidden and well protected from animals and ants.

You can drop food on the way to where you are going to walk from. Then you will know exactly where the food drops are and can do them in one trip.

Or you can talk to one of the companies offering food drops.

You can also book food drops at Standley Chasm and Glen Helen Resort. You will need to contact these places directly if you want to organise this.
