See you at the Dig Tree for an experience of a lifetime!

Entry Fees

Entry Fees for the 2015 Trek are as follows:-

Full Trek            $3,950 per person

Short Option      $2,750 per person

We invite you to compare these fees to similar 12 day fully supported Trek experiences with medical teams, full radio network and satellite communications facilities, nightly campsite entertainment, with all meals provided, covering an iconic historical journey (if you can find anything remotely similar and so extensively supported).

  • If registering after 15 May 2015 - full Trek Fees payable upon registration
  • Registrations close 16th July 2015 If Trek places are not sold out beforehand. Please ensure you register by this date.

  • Full medical support team including extensive medical equipment and supplies   
  • Large fleet of fit-for-purpose vehicles and equipment allowing your camp to be set up and moved daily.
