9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,607

Take the chance to get off the beaten track by spending seven days exploring the iconic highlights of South Australia and the Northern Territory, combining camping and budget accommodation.

Spend 9 days getting off the beaten track in South Australia and the Northern Territory on this budget friendly tour designed specifically for 18 to 39 year olds.

The Flinders Ranges are your gateway to the vast Australian outback. A scenic hike will work up an appetite for a hearty pub meal and drinks with locals. You can even try some emu or kangaroo. Known as ‘The Opal Capital of the World’, Coober Pedy is your first desert stop. Head underground to tour a working opal mine and museum, before departing for the Northern Territory.

Kings Canyon is home to some of the outback’s most spectacular walks and views. Sleep under the stars here, before going on to Uluru. Sunset at ‘the Rock’ is a sight that will stay with you forever. You’ll also visit another sacred site, Kata Tjuta (aka the Olgas), as well as the nearby Cultural Centre to learn more about the region.

Day 1

Adelaide to Flinders Ranges

On our way to 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 all the way over on the other side! After giving it a try, it's off to a local pub for dinner.

Day 2

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 Uluru.

Meal Plan Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Day 3

Flinders Ranges 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 and pay a visit to a kangaroo orphanage. Prepare for cuteness overload!

Day 4

Coober Pedy to Alice Springs

Cracked, dry and barren, Moon Plain is like something from another world. We'll cross it on our way to Alice Springs (just remember to close the gate on 5,614 km of dingo fence on your way out).

Day 5

Alice Springs to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Today it's off to Uluru for a guided walking tour and a glass of bubbles as the glow of the sunset morphs through 50 shades of red, pink, purple and blue. Tonight, it's BBQ time.

Dust off those walking boots as we take on Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) with a hike through the Valley of the Winds. Tonight, we sleep in swags. Zip up tight!

Day 8

Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

Get your hiking boots on! This morning we'll be tackling the hardest part of the famous Rim Walk in Kings Canyon (aptly named 'Heart Attack Hill'). Believe us, it's worth the effort! We're talking age-old cycads, eroded dome shapes, a visit to The Lost City and that's not even the best part. The sheltered valley and waterhole of the Garden of Eden will make today even more awesome. After a stop off to grab some lunch, we'll head back to Alice Springs.
