Our Story

Outback Adventure Treks endeavors to offer high-quality, exciting, and adventure-filled itineraries that highlight and focus on the diversity of landscapes found in Australia. As a specialised “niche” motorcycle tour operator started by Magnus Eriksson in 1989. His aim was to provide the most authentic, unique and exciting off-road adventures Australia could offer.

Magnus ErikssonThe Outback Adventure Treks family began back in the late 1980s, when Magnus Eriksson was creating, operating and leading ground breaking motorcycle adventure tours throughout inland Australia and crossing the vast deserts and jungles found on this incredible continent. These tours were ad hoc and started with just a Land Rover ute and customers riding their own bikes. We slowly added a few Honda XR’s and after a few years we had a complete fleet. OAT was born and the adventures grew bigger and better.

In 1994 Magnus decided to concentrate on what he loved doing the most, and he established Outback Adventure Treks as a specialist motorcycle tour operator in the region he knew best – Inland Australia. The “niche” was to promote motorbike group tours directly to clients all around the world via the internet. Magnus set the standard for all subsequent Outback Adventure Treks tours by offering a high quality tour – from customer service, to motorbikes, to well researched routes to the guides we use – at a good value.

Our well-planned eye-opening motorcycle tours provide an active immersion into outback Australia, scenery and, of course, the most delicious of foods. By combining legendary service and rare opportunities for cultural experiences, our travel philosophy continues to excite, enthuse, and positively impact every guest.

In 2011 Outback Adventure Treks expanded its range of tours by introducing India and the Himalayas as a new destination. In 2013 OAT also added tours in South America.

Outback Adventure Treks staff and all of our professionally licensed multi-lingual tour guides are passionate about creating the best possible experiences, with fun, creativity, and total dedication to satisfaction.
