Watch hundreds of birds take flight, or slowly cruise down the Sampan River watching for silver flashes of fish breaking the surface, all sorts of creatures move in the grass, including those big saltwater crocodiles. On guided walks and drives search for brumbies, buffalo, dingos and wallabies or pause to consider an intriguing reptile or the adaptations of a particular insect.

Itinerary Map

This itinerary explores the untamed Northern Territory and Western Australia.

Sydney

Sydney is Australia's largest and most famous city. It's home to beautiful beaches, iconic buildings, historic landmarks, award-winning restaurants, and a vibrant culture. From the breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour to the serene tranquillity of Hyde Park, Sydney has something for everyone.

Uluru

World Heritage-listed Uluru is one of Australia’s most iconic symbols. Located in the heart of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in Australia’s Red Centre, Uluru is an ancient landscape, rich in Australian indigenous culture and spirituality. There are many ways to experience the majesty of Uluru and the beauty of this unique desert landscape.

Kakadu

Cascading waterfalls, rugged escarpments, aboriginal rock art, giant crocodiles and exotic bird life. Kakadu National Park will change how you see the world. Experience the magic of this ancient land which is only a few hours from Darwin, and very close to Arnhemland, Katherine and Litchfield.

El Questro National Park

At just over 700,000 acres in size, El Questro is located in Western Australia’s untamed Kimberley region and extends for approximately 80 kilometres into its heart, most of which has never been explored. You will enjoy activities including barramundi fishing, horse trekking, or exploring remote areas by helicopter that only a select few have ever seen.

Ningaloo Reef

The World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef is one of the longest fringing coral reefs in the world.
Unlike most coral reefs, the Ningaloo Reef runs within very close proximity to the shoreline. In most places along the reef's 300km length, coral gardens brimming with brightly coloured tropical fish lie mere footsteps from the beach. This makes the Ningaloo Reef Australia's easiest access coral reef experience.

Margaret River

Start the day with a refreshing swim in a nearby beach and end the day with a fabulous glass of wine and locally sourced produce. This is part of everyday in Margaret River. In between you can walk amongst tall-timber forests, explore the serenity of ancient caves and so much more.

Perth

Want to enjoy the beach lifestyle, relax in natural bushland, sample world-class local wines and watch an ocean sunset all within 30 minutes of a city? That’s just another day in WA when you come to Perth and explore the surrounding attractions such as Rottnest Island where the friendliest marsupial, the quokka, can be found.
