Northern Territory police have found the last of six people who went missing while trying to travel through flooded central Australia.

The group became stranded when they attempted a Christmas Day trip from the Kiwirrkurra Community in Western Australia's Gibson Desert to Kintore in the Northern Territory.

A helicopter rescued four of the six on Tuesday afternoon, after they failed to make the 180km trip.

The other two, who had set off on foot to get help, were spotted from the air on Wednesday and have since been rescued.

Police said they were not believed to have suffered any injuries but have been taken to the Kintore medical clinic for precautionary checks.
