Itinerary

Day 1 - 6 day/5 night Adelaide to Alice Springs Adventure

With an early start, we head north through one of Australia’s oldest wine regions, the Clare Valley.

Tonight we camp, amongst the redgum trees of Stony Creek. (Lunch, Dinner)

Day 2 - 6 day/5 night Adelaide to Alice Springs Adventure

After breakfast we head to Coober Pedy, home to 80% of the world’s opal and a landscape a lot like Mars. We take a tour of an opal mine and check out some of the town’s unique underground attractions. We also make some new friends at Josephine’s Kangaroo Orphanage. Tonight we sleep like the locals– underground, in bunkhouse accommodation. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 3 - 6 day/5 night Adelaide to Alice Springs Adventure

We head towards Uluru. On arrival we set up camp and go out for our first Uluru sunset. Nothing really prepares you for The Rock– it’s awesome! (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 4 - 6 day/5 night Adelaide to Alice Springs Adventure

After another fantastic breakfast we enjoy a walk around the base of Uluru and spend time learning about the Aboriginal people at the Cultural Centre. We return to the campground for lunch and spend the rest of day soaking up the magic of Uluru. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 5: 6 day/5 night Adelaide to Alice Springs Adventure

Up with the birds for breakfast, today it’s at Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). We hike the majestic Valley of the Winds with its incredibly ancient rock formations. Lunch is at the campground, with a departure for the bar and swimming pool at Kings Creek Station‘just down the road’. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 6 - 6 day/5 night Adelaide to Alice Springs Adventure

We walk Watarrka (Kings Canyon) to experience the fantastic views of the gorge, huge sandstone walls and the immense canyon floor. The cool water hole in the Garden of Eden is just so special. After lunch we cruise into Alice Springs to arrive at approximately 6:30pm. You can then check in to your dorm accommodation in a nice and secure hostel for two nights. (Breakfast, Lunch)

Day 7 - Free Day - Alice Springs

Free day to relax and explore Alice Springs

Day 8 - 3 day/2 night Alice Springs to Darwin Adventure

You will be collected from your Alice Springs accommodation at approximately 6.00am and then our adventure through the ‘Territory’ to Darwin begins. Just north of Alice Springs is the Tropic of Capricorn. Further along the track are the Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu) which are a collection of gigantic granite boulders magically balanced on top of one another. Our day winds to a close just north of Tennant Creek at historic Banka Banka Cattle Station where we camp for the night. (Lunch, Dinner)

Day 9 - 3 day/2 night Alice Springs to Darwin Adventure

No trip to the ‘Territory’ is complete without a visit to the Daly Waters Pub, an important watering hole for explorers and drovers in days gone by and now a great spot for a cold beer, a bit of history and a‘fair dinkum outback experience’! Later in the day you can take a soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools, a lush oasis fringed by paperbark trees and nearby where we camp overnight. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 10 - 3 day/2 night Alice Springs to Darwin Adventure/trip ends

Your guide will wake you early this morning for the short drive to the Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park which is owned by the Jawoyn Aboriginal people. Ancient sandstone has been carved away by the Katherine River to create a deep and picturesque gorge. You may like to take a boat cruise or paddle a canoe (seasonal) through the peaceful water (both optional and additional cost). In the afternoon, relax and watch the changing landscape as we travel to cosmopolitan Darwin. (Breakfast, Lunch)
