Real Aussie Says
Driving distance from Melbourne to Darwin is over 4000km. So plenty of time on the bus on this tour to take in the outback of Australia and get to know your fellow travel mates. As we make lots of stops, walks and hikes it doesn’t feel long sitting on the tour bus. Our main piece of advice would to be bring a fly net with you for the Uluru and Kings Canyon portion of the tour, as you will be more comfortable during the hikes if your face is covered. You can easily buy one of these at a roadhouse on one of our stops along the way. Real Aussie Adventures is about adventure and getting involved. We don’t define by age but our trips are quite active. We get travelers from all over the world, people traveling by themselves, couples and groups.
