  1. Day 1 Broome

    Welcome to Broome, a coastal enclave famous for its great beaches and historic pearling industry. We will pick you up from your accommodation mid-morning and show you around this vibrant outback town and share the history as to why this is such a unique place. Afterwards, we’ll head down to the beach where we can drive the truck onto the sand for a picnic lunch and try your hand at the best Aussie outdoor sport – beach cricket! This evening, we’ll head back to our accommodation in Broome for some dinner before we hit the road tomorrow morning. (LD)

  2. Day 2 Windjana Gorge & Tunnel Creek

    We set off into the West Australian outback pretty early today and after a bit of highway driving we reach the Fitzroy River, then it’s all off-road to the Napier Range. The main attraction here is Tunnel Creek, a vast cave system that extends 750 metres underground. It’s from here that the indigenous warrior Jandamarra waged his rebellion against the colonial authorities – a legacy you’ll learn more about on walk through the tunnel with your guide. We camp overnight at Windjana Gorge, once an underwater reef. During the wet season a river flows all the way through it, but during the dry it’s really more a series of ponds and billabongs. (BLD)

  3. Day 3 Bell Gorge & Mt Barnett

    Bell Gorge is home to a stunning cascade of water flowing from the previous wet season rains that fall in the King Leopold Ranges. Further east, Mt Barnett Station will be our camp for this evening. (BLD)

  4. Day 4 Gibb River Road to El Questro

    After stretching your legs on a morning hike you will be rewarded with a swim in a large rock pool at the base of Manning Falls. Then, fording rivers and weaving through gorges, travel by 4WD along the wild Gibb River Road – a 600-kilometre stretch that winds right through the heart of the Kimberley. We’ve got a fair bit of ground to cover today, so there is a fair bit of drive time, but we’ll be breaking the journey up with lunch and at a few stops along the way. This journey includes the iconic Pentecost River crossing in our 4WD. How Australian is that! (BLD)

  5. Day 5 El Questro Station

    Originally established as an enormous cattle station, El Questro is now a vast wilderness reserve sprawled over more than one million acres. Camping out here, you’ll really feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere – albeit an extremely beautiful middle of nowhere. The ochre-coloured massifs of the Cockburn Ranges frame the landscape whichever way you turn and numerous natural springs offer plenty of opportunities for a refreshing cool-off. Following a soak in Zebedee Springs, enjoy a short trek to either El Questro or Emma Gorge (where there’s a very pretty waterfall). Then it’s another night camped out in El Questro. (BLD)

  6. Day 6 Purnululu National Park: Bungle Bungles

    So long El Questro, hello Bungle Bungles. Today we drive through the rugged landscape of Carr Boyd and the Durack Ranges into Purnululu National Park. This park is home-ground of the Bungle Bungles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dominated by massive sandstone karsts that rear hundreds of metres above the surrounding grasslands. We arrive at our bush camp in time to sit back and watch the sun set over the Osmond Ranges. If you’ve had enough of tent camping by now, you might want to spend tonight sleeping out beneath the stars snuggled up in a swag. (BLD)

  7. Day 7 Purnululu National Park: Bungle Bungles

    Strangely enough given their size, the Bungle Bungles only became known to white Australia in 1983 when they were ‘discovered’ by a film team - who then had to fly over the top by plane to find a route in by land. We know the way in, but you can sign up for a helicopter ride over the site if you wish. At ground level, we’ll go on a walk through Echidna Chasm – a long and narrow ravine banked on either side by 200 metre high rock walls - and enter the massive natural Amphitheatre of Cathedral Gorge. (BLD)

  8. Day 8 Bungle Bungles to Lake Argyle

    Today we leave the Bungle Bungles for Kununurra, the largest town between Broome and Darwin. Tonight’s campsite is on the shores of Lake Argyle. There are no further activities booked for the rest of the day, but an optional cruise out on the lake is highly recommended. (BLD)

  9. Day 9 Lake Argyle & Victoria River Region

    Lake Argyle is actually a man-made lake, though you’d never have guessed so from looking at it. For a body of water situated in the centre of the world’s second driest continent, it looks pretty at home. Barramundi, birds and freshwater crocs thrive in these waters, and the islands look like they’ve always been there (they used to be mountains). In the afternoon we push on across the state border into the Northern Territory. (BLD)

  10. Day 10 Katherine & Darwin

    The next leg of our journey takes us through to Darwin, with stop-offs made en route at either Katherine Gorge or Edith Falls. Then it's off to your included accommodation in Darwin(BL)

  11. Day 11 Darwin Free Day

    Explore Darwin at your own pace, laze by a pool or perhaps get your washing sorted - the choice is yours

  12. Day 12 Flight to Alice Springs

    Today we provide an airport transfer, flight to Alice then a transfer to your accommodation in Alice Springs.

  13. Day 13 Alice Springs to Uluru

    Starting in Alice Springs, we set off to experience the of these desert animals (at your own expense). Continue on to the permanent campsite at Yulara for lunch before embarking to explore the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta, getting up close to this ancient geological formatiowonder of the iconic Uluru. We make a stop at an authentic outback camel farm and for those that are keen there is the option to go for a short ride on the back of onen. As the sun begins to disappear below the horizon, take a glass of sparkling wine and watch the rock’s rich colours change against the backdrop of a blazing Red Centre sunset. This is the perfect end to a remarkable day. Your tour host will have dinner and a glass of wine awaiting your arrival back at camp. (L,D)

  14. Day 14 Kata Tjuta to Kings Canyon

    An early start is rewarded with a glorious Uluru sunrise. While the morning is still fresh enjoy a walk around the base of Uluru. Deepen your understanding of the land and the Mala people during a cultural interpretive walk with an Aboriginal guide (and interpreter). It is a unique opportunity to share experiences, and to connect with and learn about the oldest culture on earth. Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to purchase Aboriginal arts and crafts at the Cultural Centre before we travel to our exclusive campsite within the Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) where we sleep for the night. (B,L,D)

  15. Day 15 Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

    Discover the Lost City and the Garden of Eden on a 6km hike in Kings Canyon. Admire and explore the towering walls and crevices of Watarrka National Park. The photo opportunities are endless in Kings Canyon so be sure to bring your camera. At the end of the trek it’s time to refuel with a bite to eat before making the journey back to the remote centre of Alice Springs. (B,L)

  16. Day 16 Alice Springs to Jervois Station

    A half day free in Alice Springs to visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service and Reptile Centre or relax in Central Australia’s most iconic town. (Entry fees not included). Then be ready for pickup at 1pm for departure to Jervois Station where we camp for the night under the stars. (D)

  17. Day 17 Jervois Station to Boulia

    Enjoy the Spectacular scenery as we make our way through some of the most remote country in the world! Crossing from Northern Territory into Queensland our track is mostly dirt road between Alice Springs and Boulia. You are now on one of the most remote tracks in the world! (B,L,D)

  18. Day 18 Boulia to Hughenden

    Departing Boulia we travel through the remote country towards our first stop – Winton (Home of Waltzing Matilda). This is truly a very special part of the world. Experience ever-changing scenery from the dry desert country in South Western Queensland into the tropical north. (B,L,D)

  19. Day 19 Hughenden to Cairns

    Visit the cliffs of coloured sandstone, vine forest and deep permanent waterholes along Porcupine Creek contrast strikingly with the savanna plains surrounding Porcupine Gorge. We stop at the smallest pub in Australia at Lynd Junction. Before reaching our destination we drive through the Atherton Tablelands where you can go for a swim in Millstream Falls. Arrive in Cairns in the early evening. (B,L)
