  1. Day 1 Cairns to Hughenden

    You will be collected from your Cairns accommodation for an early start and drive to Hughenden. Visit the beautiful Atherton Tablelands and go for a swim at Millstream Falls. Stop at the smallest pub in Australia at Lynd Junction. Visit the cliffs of coloured sandstone, vine forest and deep permanent waterholes along Porcupine Creek contrast strikingly with the savanna plains surrounding Porcupine Gorge. Accommodation at Hughenden. (L,D)

  2. Day 2 ughenden to Boulia

    Early start, Hughenden to Boulia. Travel through Winton (Home of Waltzing Matilda) then on through the remote country towards Boulia. This is truly a very special part of the world. Experience the ever-changing scenery from the tropical north to the dry desert country in south western Queensland. (B,L,D)

  3. Day 3 Boulia to Jervois Station

    This is the longest day on the road but we will enjoy spectacular scenery as we make our way through some of the most remote country in the world! Crossing from Queensland into the Northern Territory, our track is mostly dirt road between Boulia and Alice Springs and is one of the most remote tracks in the world. Enjoy a night camping under the stars at Jervois Station. (B,L,D)

  4. Day 4 Jervois Station to Alice Springs

    Arrive in Alice Springs before lunch to enjoy an afternoon to relax in Central Australia’s most iconic town, Alice Springs,. A great opportunity to visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service, the Reptile Centre and many other attractions. Entry fees not included. (B)

  5. Day 5 Alice Springs to Uluru

    Starting in Alice Springs, we set off to experience the wonder 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 one 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 formation. 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)

  6. Day 6 Kata Tjuta to Kings Canyon

    An early start is rewarded with a glorious Uluru sunrise. While the morning’s fresh enjoy an unguided 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)

  7. Day 7 Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

    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)

  8. Day 8 Alice Springs

    Enjoy a free Day in Alice Springs

  9. Day 9 Alice to Darwin Flight

    Transfer to Alice Springs airport and included flight to Darwin. On arrival in Darwin you will be provided a transfer to your Darwin Accommodation

  10. Day 10 Darwin

    Free Day in Darwin

  11. Day 11 Darwin to Katherine Region

    Starting early the next leg of this overland adventure kicks off from the Northern Territory’s tropical capital with a drive south to Nitmiluk National Park. Depending on the season, your adventure will get underway with a swim in the natural pool by the base of Edith Falls or an optional cruise through the croc-filled waters of Katherine Gorge. After lunch it’s on to our private campsite on the edge of Nitmiluk, where you have the option of spending the night in a permanent tent or snuggled up in a swag (an Aussie bedroll). (LD)

  12. Day 12 Katherine to Lake Argyle

    The Outback of the Kimberley region, which spreads across the northern region of Western Australia, is not as flat, dry and barren as many first expect. Today we’ll visit enormous Lake Argyle, which looks perfectly at home despite being entirely man-made. You have the option of taking a cruise and looking for native fauna have settled here in huge numbers – try to spy crocs, wallabies and rare birds. Soak up the backdrop of mountains-turned-islands as we explore some of the 700 square kilometre surface of the lake, then turn into camp under some seriously starry skies. (BLD)

  13. Day 13 Purnululu National Park: Bungle Bungles

    Via Kununurra we travel south to Purnululu National Park, home to the World Heritage-listed Bungle Bungles. The distinctive sandstone towers of the Bungle Bungle Range only became known to wide Australia when a group of documentary filmmakers stumbled across them in 1982. Travelling by both foot and vehicle, we’ll take you through the craggy gorges, past unique rock formations, and to hidden waterholes. The day closes with a stunning Kimberley sunset witnessed from this evening’s bush camp. (BLD)

  14. Day 14 Purnululu National Park: Bungle Bungles

    Today is all about getting to know the Bungle Bungles proper. First stop for the day is the ever-narrowing gap of Echidna Chasm. Formed over millions of years by water flowing through an opening in the sandstone, the path winds through palm-filled gorges up to 200 metres high though in parts only 1-2 metres wide. Next, trade the tight spaces of Echidna Chasm for the wide-open natural amphitheatre of Cathedral Gorge. From feeling dwarfed by these giant rock structures, get a very different perspective with a helicopter flight over the Bungle Bungles. Though an optional activity at extra cost, this is definitely an experience worth shelling out for. (BLD)

  15. Day 15 Bungle Bungles to El Questro

    Hit the road again, this time passing Warmun (Turkey Creek) and the Durack Ranges on the way to El Questro. Not too long ago, it was mostly cattle that got to enjoy the million-acre sprawl of El Questro. Thankfully for the rest of us, the owners recognised the beauty they had on their hands and turned it into a wilderness park in 1991. Arriving at our campsite, there’ll be time for a beer or two at the Swinging Arm Bar before dinner. (BLD)

  16. Day 16 El Questro Station

    At almost double the size of Luxembourg in Europe, there are plenty of scenic spots to explore in El Questro. On the drive in you will have got some clue as to the huge cliffs, deep gorges, waterfalls and swimming holes contained in the Cockburn Ranges, but now you’ll be exploring them on foot. Walk to Emma Gorge, cool off in a waterfall-fed subtropical pool and bliss out in the thermal springs of Zebedee. (BLD)

  17. Day 17 Gibb River Road & Mt Barnett

    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 stop-offs along the way. Tonight’s camp is at Mt Barnett station located very close to Manning Gorge. (BLD)

  18. Day 18 Manning Gorge to Silent Grove

    We spend the morning exploring the stunning Manning Gorge and enjoy a swim in the pools under Manning Falls. Depending on the season, post-lunch we spend the afternoon exploring Adcock or Galvans gorge before making our way to Silent Grove and setting up camp for the night. (BLD)

  19. Day 19 Bell Gorge & Windjana Gorge

    The western Kimberley region is full of endless stunning gorges that have to be explored and this morning is no exception. After breakfast we adventure to Bell Gorge home to a stunning cascade of water flowing from the previous wet season rains that fall in the King Leopold Ranges. The afternoon sees us head to Windjana Gorge, a segment of 375 million-year-old reef that was once underwater. Cut through by the Lennard River, which runs during the wet season then breaks up into little billabongs during the dry, this gorge attracts many species of bird and bat and is a great spot to see wild freshwater crocodiles. (BLD)

  20. Day 20 Tunnel Creek & Broome

    Begin the day exploring the Napier Range. The major attraction here is Tunnel Creek, an extensive limestone cave system that extends 750 m underground. Inside, shards of sunlight stream in through crevices, little bats flutter about and enormous stalactites rear down from the ceiling. In the late 1800s, an indigenous man called Jandamarra waged a one-man uprising against European settlers, becoming a hero to his people. You’ll hear a bit about his legacy during a tour through Tunnel Creek, then make the final drive on to Broome, hopefully arriving in time for a stunning Cable Beach sunset. (BL)
