When you rsvp, please provide your full name, contact no,  email address and bedding configuration. I have organised a private tour for NPA with Inspiration Vacations. We are offered a group discount of 5%. A few NPA leaders and members had done a similar tour with them last winter and the feedbacks were positive.  For your comfort level, I’’m quoting  the insight from Graham. “The walks are no problem for NPA grade 3 walkers. Lots of river stone/rock walking cause they are mostly in gorges. Not long walks. 30 to 34 Deg every day. Down to 10-12 deg some nights so camping gets cool. Campfires. Coolest nights July. Purnalulu is coolest cause no fires allowed." Please see below link to itinerary and prices.
