Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Darwin to Kakadu National Park

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.

Meals: Lunch and dinner

Day 2 - Kakadu National Park

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.

Meals: Breakfast

November – May 

Itineraries will vary on this day during the wet season with access to some areas cut by high water levels. Your crew will ensure that you see and participate in as many areas/activities that are open and available within Kakadu.

Day 3 - 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.

Meals: Breakfast and dinner

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…

Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - 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.

Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 6 - 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!

Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Uluru

After leaving Alice Springs behind us, we’ll make tracks to Yulara and Uluru-Kata Tjuta 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.

Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 8 - Uluru

After seeing Uluru at sunrise, we’ve got a base walk around Uluru. Then, there’s loads of awesome optional activities. Anyone for a helicopter ride or camel ride?

Meals: Breakfast

Day 9 - 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.

Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 10 - 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.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 11 - Alice Springs

The trip might be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave right now. There’s so much more to see in Australia after all…
