Adventure Tours

Adventure Tours is the leading small group tour operator in Australia. We're a bunch of Aussies that have been leading travellers through this big ol’ continent over the past 24 years. Informative and immersive, our tours are for those looking to develop a true-blue understanding of Australia’s inner-workings – and have a great time while at it. We take one comfy, air-con equipped 4WD or minibus, load it up with a knowledgeable guide, a bunch of fellow adventurers, tents, swags and some packed picnics, then head out into the wilds. The whole outfit is far more your classic Aussie road trip than it is a standard charter bus tour – just with someone looking after the driving and navigating for you.

More Products from Adventure Tours

Day 1: Adelaide/Flinders Ranges
Barely 100 clicks north of Adelaide lies the Clare Valley, an undulating sprawl of vineyards, wine cellars and quaint bluestone cottages. Renowned for its production of world-class Rieslings, this is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions – and one of its prettiest too. On the drive through to Wilpena Pound you’ll be treated to some extraordinary views of the Flinders Ranges, which, stretching for over 430 km across South Australia, are the state’s biggest mountain range. Arriving at our campsite there’ll be time for hike before snuggling down in a swag.

Note: Total driving time takes around five hours.
Accommodation: Camping (with basic facilities) (1 night)
Included Activities: Wilpena Pound
Meals Included: Lunch, Dinner
Day 2: Oodnadatta Track/William Creek
Leaving the flinders Ranges, we cruise north towards the tiny town of Lyndhurst, where the entrance sign proclaims ‘Welcome to Lyndhurst. Pop. 30 (most days)’. Hitting the famous Oodnadatta Track, we’ll make a stop by Lake Eyre (Australia’s largest salt lake), before arriving at our campsite in William Creek – base for the night.

Note: Total driving time today is approximately 8 hours
Accommodation: Camping (with basic facilities) (1 night)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Coober Pedy
Covering an area of six million acres, Anna Creek Station is the world’s largest working cattle station. The estate was founded in 1899 by Sir Sidney Kidman, a distant relative of Nicole who set from home out on a one-eyed horse at age 13 to make his fortune. By mid afternoon we’ll have reached the opal-mining town of Coober Pedy. The weather here is so hot that life’s better lived underground. After taking a guided tour of this subterranean society, and checking into an underground bunkhouse, you’ll have the afternoon at leisure. Try your luck ‘noodling’ for opals, or finish the day at Josephine’s Kangaroo Orphanage to see what’s hopping about.

Note: Total driving time today is approximately 6.5 hours
Accommodation: Underground Multishare (1 night)
Included Activities: Anna Creek Station, Coober Pedy Mine tour, Josephine’s Gallery and Kangaroo Orphanage
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4: Coober Pedy / Yulara
We’ll be honest, there’s a fair bit of driving today. From Coober Pedy we travel across the Moon Plains, past the Dingo Fence, past Breakaways Reserve, and into Yulara. Make sure you have your Ipod fully charged and your neck cushion handy.

Note: Today driving time will be about 8.5 hours.
Accommodation: Permanent tented camp (with shared facilities) (1 night)
Included Activities: Dingo Fence
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5: Yulara/Uluru (Ayers Rock)
Translating to the Pitjantjatjara word for ‘Many Heads’, the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta are a defining feature of the Red Centre landscape both topographically and spiritually. Rising 546 m above the surrounding plain, Mt. Olga’s tip is the highest point for miles around, while the site’s ridges and ravines are closely connected with numerous indigenous creation-time stories. Many of these stories are kept secret from outsiders, but you’ll learn a little about the local Anangu culture, and come to appreciate the beauty of their land, on a guided walk.

Tonight you can sleep in a permanent tent or curl up in a swag (Aussie bedroll) as you watch the desert sun set over Uluru and enjoy a night under the outback stars.

Note: There isn’t much driving today, about an hour in total between destinations. You will walk approximately 5-9km, depending on how much of Uluru’s base you would like to walk.
Accommodation: Permanent tented camp (with shared facilities) (1 night)
Included Activities: Mala cultural interpretative walk, Uluru & Kata Tjuta National Park Entrance, Uluru Base Walk, Uluru Cultural Centre
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6: Uluru/Kings Canyon
Uluru isn’t Coober Pedy, but it still gets pretty hot here come midday. If you’re keen to beat the heat on a walk around the rock’s base, we recommend an early rise. Uluru holds great significance to the local Anangu people, and appreciating this is key to appreciating Uluru itself. An indigenous guide will explain a little about the land during a cultural interpretative walk, after which there’s the opportunity to learn more at the onsite Cultural Centre. Later in the day there’s also the opportunity of taking a helicopter flight over Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park before we hit the road again for Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon).

Note: Today, driving time is about four hrs and walking is up to ten kilometres.
Accommodation: Permanent tented camp (with shared facilities) (1 night)
Included Activities: Watarrka National Park Entry Fees
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7: Kings Canyon/Alice Springs
With its 300-metre high sandstone walls, hidden waterholes, fern forests, chasms, canyons and caverns, Watarrka National Park is central Australia’s answer to an oasis. The highlight attractions here are the Garden of Eden, the Amphitheatre and the Lost City – all sites you’ll get to visit on the Rim Walk. Following lunch it’s back on the road for the onward drive to Alice Springs, where this adventure concludes.

Note: Driving time today is approximately 5 hours back to Alice Springs, and the Rim Walk is approximately 6km.
Included Activities: Kings Canyon Rim Walk
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 8: Flight Alice Springs to Darwin
Today, skip the 1,500km of driving which is about 24 hours by road, and fly from Alice Springs to Darwin with Qantas Airways. Qantas was Australia’s first commercial airline, and stands for “Queensland and Northern Territory Ariel Services” and is now one of the worlds best International airlines.

We’ll arrange your air tickets and issue them a couple of weeks prior to your departure. On arrival in Darwin, someone will be waiting to transfer you to your hotel.
Accommodation: Hostel (1 night)
Meals Included: Lunch
Day 9: Free day in Darwin

Accommodation: Hostel (1 night)
Meals Included: There are no meals included on this day.
Day 10: Mary River Wetlands & Ubirr
Welcome to tropical Darwin, where your adventure begins. As this trip spends very little time in the Northern Territory’s capital, consider arriving a few days early to explore the city. After meeting your group and leader this morning, leave Darwin and travel into Wulna Country, where you’ll receive a Cul Cul (‘Welcome to Country’) by the traditional owners of the land, the Limilngan-Wulna people. Learn about their ancient culture as you enjoy bush tucker talks, didgeridoo demonstrations and basket weaving. Next stop is the Mary River wetlands system, which has the highest concentration of saltwater crocodiles in the southern hemisphere.
