DAY 1 Darwin to Kakadu

See ya later Darwin, we’re on our way to Kakadu. We’ll make stops at the stunning Florence Falls and the ancient rock pools of Buley Rock Hole to give you a taster of this amazing place. Ready for 20 days of awesome? Let’s do this.


DAY 2 Kakadu

First up today: a cruise along the World Heritage-listed East Alligator River. Afterwards, prepare to be wowed – we’re off to check out some more incredible Aboriginal Rock Art. Quick fact: some paintings are up to 20,000 years old. Take a moment to let that sink in! This afternoon, learn some more about Kakadu at the Bowali Cultural Centre, then take in some awesome views of the Mamukala Wetlands.


DAY 3 Kakadu to Katherine

This morning we’ll make tracks to the Warradjan Cultural Centre for an insight into Aboriginal traditions and history. Later, we’ll check out the ancient paintings at the Burrungkuy Rock Art site. Amazing! This evening, there’s a game of lawn bowls in store, so kick off those shoes and prepare to get unexpectedly competitive.


DAY 4 Katherine

Wanna get up close and personal with some of Mother Nature’s finest work? Great! A cruise along the Nitmiluk Gorge and a visit to the idyllic Edith Falls should do the trick...


DAY 5 Katherine to Tennant Creek

First up: a visit to the palm-fringed Mataranka Hot Springs, where you can bathe in warm waters of a clear thermal pool. Also today: a stop at the legendary (and supposedly haunted) Daly Waters pub. In the mood for a brewski?


DAY 6 Tennant Creek to Alice Springs

Cheerio, Tennant Creek – today it’s onwards to Alice Springs. Along the way, we’ll make a pit stop at the Devils Marbles, a collection of huuuuuge, millions-of-years-old granite boulders. Fill up that camera roll!


DAY 7 Alice Springs to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

After leaving Alice Springs behind us, we'll make tracks to Yulara and Ulu?u-Kata Tju?a National Park (the home of the big red rock itself). Get those road trip songs ready! Tonight: raise a glass and watch the sun go down over the most iconic Aussie landmark. Wow.


DAY 8 Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

After seeing Ulu?u at sunrise we’ll head for a base walk around the famous site. Then, there’s loads of awesome optional activities. Anyone for a helicopter ride or camel ride?


DAY 9 Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to Kings Canyon

Today, we’ll move on to Kings Canyon. There’s plenty of time to do optional quad biking before we go all-out outback with a sleep under the stars in custom swags. Please be aware that in winter months (May-Sept), nighttime temperatures can drop to near 0 degrees so 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 10 Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

Heads up – we’ll be tackling a serious set of 500 steps before we get to the shady oasis that is the Garden of Eden. It’ll be worth the climb, promise! When you’re all tuckered out, we’ll hit the road to Alice Springs.


DAY 11 Alice Springs

You’ve got a free day to spend however you please in Alice Springs.


DAY 12 Alice Springs 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. Please note that the twin / double / or single upgrade is not applicable to the overnight underground stay.


DAY 13 Coober Pedy to Flinders Ranges

Grab brekkie and fuel up, ‘cos today we’ll pay a visit to a kangaroo orphanage. Prepare for cuteness overload! After, it’s all aboard the coach as we shimmy on over to Flinders Ranges.


DAY 14 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 Ulu?u. We’ve also got all your meals covered today. You’re welcome.


DAY 15 Flinders Ranges to Adelaide

On our way out of 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, we hit the road once more.


DAY 16 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 17 Adelaide to Mt Gambier

See ya later Adelaide and helloooo wine! We’ll be stopping off at Wynn’s Coonawarra vineyard for a wine class with the crew. Because, after all, no South Australian voyage is complete without wine. Tonight, catch some shut eye in the Old Mount Gambier Gaol.


DAY 18 Mt Gambier to Grampians National Park

Wake up and get ready for a new day in Aus. To start off, we’ll check out the Blue Lake and the Umpherston Sinkhole. Next up: MacKenzie Falls, the largest waterfall in Victoria.


DAY 19 Grampians National Park to Port Campbell

From one natural wonder to another. Today, we’ll explore some of the 167,000 hectares of the Grampians and the Loch Ard Gorge. Visit Brambuk and learn about the traditional landowners, hear their Dreamtime stories and paint your own story on a boomerang.


DAY 20 Port Campbell to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road

It’s not called the ‘Great’ Ocean Road for nothing! Get snappy over the 12 Apostles before we end the trip in Melbourne aka one of the most liveable cities in the world. Come find out why, and maybe extend that Australian adventure of yours a few more days. Go on, you know you want to!
