What is Packing?

Packing is the art of carrying cargo on the back of an animal.  Pack animals may include horses, mules, camels, bullocks, goats or dogs.

 

Wilderness Expeditions carries all the gear required for comfortable camping on our donkey pack teams. This includes camp furniture: tents, camp stretcher beds, tables and chairs; food and luggage.

 

We use specially designed pack saddles that fit the donkeys and traditional Australian methods of packing thereby maintaining traditional skills and methods that have been used in the Herberton region for over 130 years.
