More Information

DAY 1 Melbourne to Port Campbell 

It's not called the 'Great' Ocean Road for nothing! Get snappy over the 12 Apostles before chilling out tonight.


DAY 2 Port Campbell to Grampains 

Today we’ll explore the Grampians and the Loch Ard Gorge. Meet the traditional landowners (the Djab Wurrung and Jardwadjal people), hear their Dreamtime stories and paint your own story on a boomerang.


DAY 3 Grampians to Mt Gambier

Next up: MacKenzie Falls, the largest waterfall in Victoria. Tonight, catch some shut eye in the Old Mount Gambier Gaol.


DAY 4 Mt Gambier to Adelaide

Check out the Blue Lake and Umpherston Sinkhole before stopping off at Wynn’s Coonawarra vineyard for a wine class. Afterwards: Adelaide.


DAY 5 Adelaide

With heaps of bars and an awesome live music scene, your day in Adelaide is likely to pass by in a flash. Best get a move on!


DAY 6 Adelaide to Flinders Ranges

On our way to the Flinders Ranges, we'll stop off at the Barossa Reservoir Whispering Wall. Word has it that if you whisper something at one end of the wall, it can be heard allllll the way over on the other side! After giving it a try, it’s off to a local pub for dinner.


DAY 7 Flinders Ranges

Mountains? Yep. Gorges? Uh-huh. Creeks? You betcha. Rivers? Why, of course! Flinders Ranges National Park has EVERYTHING. Today we’ll take a hike at Wilpena Pound – a natural amphitheatre about three times the size of Uluru.


DAY 8 Flinders Ranges to Coober Pedy

Destination: Coober Pedy, where locals live in homes carved deep underground to escape the heat. Today we’ll embark on a gem of an opal mine tour and pay a visit to a kangaroo orphanage. Prepare for cuteness overload!


DAY 9 Coober Pedy to Alice Springs

Cracked, dry and barren, Moon Plain is like something from another world. We’ll cross it on our way to Alice Springs (just remember to close the gate on 5,614 km of dingo fence on your way out).


DAY 10 Alice Springs to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Today it's off to Uluru for a guided walking tour and a glass of bubbles as the glow of the sunset morphs through 50 shades of red, pink, purple and blue. Tonight, it’s BBQ time.


DAY 11 Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

What’s more amazing than sunset at Uluru? Yep, you guessed it – sunrise. Time for a walk! Then: get your adventure on with an optional helicopter ride, camel ride or segway tour.


DAY 12 Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to Kings Canyon

Dust off those walking boots as we take on Kata Tju?a (The Olgas) with a hike through the Valley of the Winds. Tonight, we sleep in swags. Zip up tight! Please be aware that in winter months (May-Sept), nighttime temperatures can drop to near 0 degrees, warmer clothing will be required for the night sleeping in the swag. Please note that the twin / double / or single upgrade is not applicable to the Overnight Swag Night at Kings Canyon.


DAY 13 Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

Get your hiking boots on! This morning we’ll be tackling the hardest part of the famous Rim Walk in Kings Canyon (aptly named ‘Heart Attack Hill’). Believe us, it’s worth the effort! We’re talking age-old cycads, eroded dome shapes, a visit to The Lost City… and that's not even the best part. The sheltered valley and waterhole of the Garden of Eden will make today even more awesome. After a stop off to grab some lunch, we’ll head back to Alice Springs.


DAY 14 Alice Springs

After breakfast, it’s time to say goodbye. Stifle those sobs and get to work planning your next adventure!
