1. The tour starts in Sydney.

Sydney is one of the main places travellers fly into Australia. Its also a popular starting point for those studying or working in Australia for a while. If you have just 4 weeks to travel in Australia do try to spend a few days here before the tour starts to explore the highlights. Check out our article on what to do in Sydney.


2. It is 20 days.

The reason this trip is so popular is because a lot of people like to travel in around 4 weeks in Australia, especially if they are on a round the world trip or an extended vacation. You want to see as much as possible in the time you have! This trip takes in 4 states in only 20 days, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and The Northern Territory. 


3. Discounted travel.

As this Sydney to Darwin tour is a few trips combined it offers great value for money! It fits into a good budget for those with only three weeks to travel Australia. Who doesn't like saving money when travelling?


4. Everything is organised for you.

Accommodation in stopover cities and on tour, most meals, hikes and activities are all included. And most importantly an amazing guide on every tour section to teach you all about the specific history and nature of each region of Australia. You will have 'No Worries' as the locals like to say.

5. You will travel with a small group.

The group will change as you travel on each section of the trip, a chance to make lots of new friends from around the world. 


6. You visit Coober Pedy.

Obviously the main Australian destinations you have heard about are covered. Canberra, Melbourne, The Great Ocean Road, Flinders Ranges, Uluru, Kings Canyon, Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks. But we also take in some of the lesser known spots. Coober Pedy is an underground town and has to be one of the oddest places in Australia. Famous for the filing of the original Mad Max movies and its abundance of Opals. This place has to be seen to be believed! 


7. The tour finishes in Darwin.

Darwin has an international airport with many great value flights onto Asia, or back home to Europe. Or maybe you are thinking of doing the East Coast of Australia and making your way back down to Sydney again?


8. You get to see such a diverse range of landscapes.

From the water bashing the cliffs on the Great Ocean Road, to the remarkable sunset at Uluru. From the graffiti of the hidden laneways in Melbourne to the spectacular waterfalls of Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory. This trip really does have everything Australia has to offer you as a visitor to this great land.

9. The Native Australian Wildlife.

On this trip you have the chance to spot everything from our favourite the Kangaroo to a Thorny Devil Lizard. We see plenty of wildlife in Kakadu National Park, including the infamous Saltwater Crocodile. You will hopefully catch a glimpse of a Koala in the trees along the Great Ocean Road and fruit bats flying overhead at Mataranka hot springs in the Northern Territory. There is an abundance of native animals and birds to be seen on the Sydney to Darwin trip.


10. Its got outback camping under the stars.

Not only do you get to stay in a comfy bed in the main towns, you also get the experience sleeping in a swag under the stars in Australia's outback. This is a once in a lifetime, never to be forgotten experience! Don't know what a swag is? Have a look at this.
