On all our tours your local guide will inform you of the wonderful geological significance of Uluru and the surrounding outback, and you’ll get the chance to walk the base of Ayers Rock and take in all its natural beauty. You’ll definitely need your camera ready to capture the incredible sunset at Uluru, as the red dirt creates an enchanting warm glow that is nothing short of picturesque.

3. Blue Mountains

Our East Coast tours will take you to the beautiful Blue Mountains, which are another World Heritage-listed site and one of New South Wales’ most scenic spots. The area is home to the iconic Three Sisters rock formation, set amongst rugged steep cliffs and beautiful eucalyptus forests. The sweeping views across the national park must be seen to be believed, making the Blue Mountains a definite must-see during your next Australian Adventure.

Australia is famous for its abundance of native animals and gorgeous beaches. Monkey Mia, located 800km north of Perth on Australia’s West Coast, combines both of these things for an unforgettable experience. A visit to this unique bay area gives you the chance to get up close and personal with wild dolphins as they come into shore for their daily feed!

5. Great Ocean Road

One of the most scenic drives in the whole of Australia, this coastal road runs between Torquay and Warrnambool on Victoria’s south coast. You’ll need to make a few pit stops to take in the spectacular views, the most famous being the Twelve Apostles – an incredible rock formation off the shores of the Port Campbell National Park. Other highlights along the Great Ocean Road include the charming coastal town of Lorne – popular with seafood lovers, and Bells Beach surf spot.

6. Karijini National Park

Located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, Karijini is another national park that boasts rugged outback scenery and unique cultural experiences due to its Aboriginal ties. The park is also home to a number of native Aussie animals, such as red kangaroos, echidnas, goannas and rock wallabies. On our Perth to Broome tour, you’ll stay at the multi-award-winning Karijini Eco Retreat in deluxe Safari Eco Tent, which gives you the perfect opportunity to experience an unforgettable night in the Aussie outback!
