Highlights

 

Admire the rugged wilderness and learn about the history of Australia’s Top End and Red Centre on a journey from Adelaide to Darwin on this 15 day Outback Adventure, including return Qantas flights. 

The Australian Outback is a legendary place and your experience of this unparalleled landscape sees you first adventure to Adelaide, the graceful capital of South Australia. Be welcomed to the City of Churches on a guided tour of Adelaide Central Market and explore more of the capital’s sights. Leave skyscrapers and CBDs behind as you begin your northwards journey into Clare Valley, one of South Australia’s most prolific wine-producing regions. Take in the mountainous peaks and dusty red roads of the Flinders Ranges and Wilpena Pound. Following an overnight stay in Port Augusta, a quaint city located on the Spencer Gulf, it is time to immerse yourself in Australia’s Red Centre at Coober Pedy. Head underground in this unique city, often touted as the opal capital of the world, and watch a demonstration about this precious gem. 

Cross the border from South Australia into the Northern Territory and start your time in UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed national parks at arguably one of Australia’s most emblematic landmarks: Uluru. This magnificent sandstone monolith is an unforgettable backdrop for your first night in the Northern Territory. Tick off seeing an Uluru sunrise and a visit to the Olgas, as well as tackling the famed rim track around beautiful Kings Canyon. Take in views of Alice Springs from Anzac Hill and sit down with a local guide to learn about the area’s traditional landowners and their culture and customs. Dip your toes into the waters of thermal springs at Mataranka, cruise along Katherine Gorge, and venture into the untamed nature of Kakadu National Park for magnificent lookout points, visits to Aboriginal rock art sites, and the chance to spot a crocodile or two. Enjoy an afternoon in Darwin with a sightseeing experience of your choice and use the NT’s dynamic capital as a gateway for travelling to Litchfield National Park, where you’ll see the park’s famous termite mounds and waterfalls. 

 
 

Day 1: New Zealand – airplane-takeoff – Adelaide (D)

Depart New Zealand for Adelaide, Australia. Upon arrival, explore the major sights of the ‘City of Churches’. Did you know, you can reach any point in the city within 20 minutes? Adelaide is known for being highly accessible making it easy to get around without the use of a car. Take the opportunity to wander the city’s streets and soak in the many pubs and bars,  before joining a local food expert for a guided tour of the vibrant Adelaide Central Market. Relax this evening with your Travel Director and fellow travellers at a Welcome Reception and dinner at La Boca Bar and Grill.

For those purchasing the Tour Only option, your tour starts today. Please make your own way to the hotel.

Day 2: Adelaide – Flinders Ranges National Park (B, D)

After a 2 hour drive north through the stunning countryside arrive at the Clare Valley for a wine-tasting with a local food expert at Sevenhill Cellars, the region’s oldest winery. Sevenhill Cellars was established in 1851 when local Jesuits in the area planted vines to produce sacramental wine. Over 150 years later, the historical winery is highly regarded for its premium table wines which are recognised world-wide. Later today, travel through the Flinders Ranges to Wilpena Pound, a remarkable natural amphitheatre covering nearly 8,000 hectares.

This afternoon’s journey takes you to superb Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), thirty-six magnificent domes of red-hued sedimentary rock.

Day 7: Uluru – Kings Canyon (B, D)

Leave Ayers Rock this morning to travel through a stark red desert landscape to awe-inspiring Kings Canyon, whose ancient red rock walls soar 100 metres above Kings Creek.

This evening, join the Falzon family at Earth Sanctuary World Nature Centre for a home-cooked Be My Guest barbecue dinner. Afterwards, hear from the Falzon brothers, Tom and Danny, about the sustainable lifestyle they have established.

Today you’ll travel further north, visiting the quirky Daly Waters Pub before continuing to Mataranka, where a swim in the warm, crystal-clear waters of the thermal springs is a must-do. Journey on to Katherine for the night.

Day 12: Katherine – Kakadu (B, D)
