The Frontline Safari is an ADF veteran run adventure motorcycle tour taking place annually in the heartland of central Australia. The event starts and finishes in Marree, South Australia. Each year our Australian military veterans use their survival expertise, bush skills and superb military mission planning skills to help support 40 + paying adventure motorcycle riders cross the Simpson Desert, the worlds biggest parallel sand dune desert with over 1100 sand dunes.
Established in 2018 by two Australian Army veterans, the Frontline Safari is the most affordable Simpson Desert motorcycle and four wheel drive tour available to date. The Frontline Safari is the largest and most successful Simpson Desert tour available to the Australian public. No other tour operator in Australia has the skills, know-how and capacity to manage 40+ motorcycle riders and 20+ four wheel drives across the Simpson Desert.
As part of our continuing support of veterans charities across Australia, 2024 will see the Frontline Safari fundraising for Saltwater Veterans Sailing Project. A charity near and dear to our heart. Most of our support staff volunteer and fundraise for Saltwater Veterans Australia.
Since our first event in 2018, we have raised in excess of $150,000 for Soldier On Australia, contributing in excess of $300,000 to veteran businesses supplying and supporting our annual events. Something we are very proud of.
The event is a stress-free adventure ride, crossing the Simpson Desert with support vehicles in tow supporting, feeding and fueling all attendees. The Frontline Safari is not a race. The tour event takes place to help raise vital funds for veteran charities and small business. Each attendee will have the opportunity to chat with combat veterans, listen to stories and learn vital bush skills, aboriginal culture and notable history from the region, all whilst crossing the Simpson Desert, "stress free".
