This one of a kind App is the first GPS triggered audio tour in the Northern Territory. All you have to do is drive, and when you drive through each GPS location you will be entertained by 12 audio tracks, each with fascinating commentary and totaling 80 minutes. You can stop where and when you like - your tour is up to you!
DIY Tourguide will bring alive stories of early pioneers, Aboriginal culture, flora, fauna, history, geology, interesting facts and figures and more. Local Outback characters and field experts have their say too, so you won’t miss a thing. All our tours have been developed by experienced professional tour guides living in Central Australia.
The drive along the West MacDonnell Ranges (Red Centre Way) is a journey through billions of years in time, where remote landscapes hide a desert that is filled with life. Along the way there is much to see, do and learn:
- Do fish really live in the desert?
- Why are the West MacDonnell Ranges home to so many rare and ancient plants?
- Was there really an inland sea here?
- How were all the waterholes and gorges created?
- How did Aboriginal people use and trade ochre from the Ochre Pits?
These questions and more are all answered with DIY Tourguide.
