Over the next 6 days your journey will take you around Australia’s magnificent south west corner. Starting in the vineyards of the Margaret River and then onto the towering karri forests of Pemberton, and the Valley of the Giants in Albany, before returning back to Perth for your flight to Broome.

Day 9 - Broome
Fly from Perth into Broome to spend the next 3 nights at your leisure. Regarded as the pearling town of Australia, and renowned for its turquoise blue water and relaxed atmosphere, Broome offers the perfect opportunity to relax over the next few days. If you are looking to get out and about we suggest a camel ride along Cable Beach at sunset or for nature enthusiasts we recommend a trip to Roebuck Bay.

This morning start your incredible 4WD journey through the remote and undiscovered Kimberley region. Your journey will take you from Broome across Australia’s Great Outback to Darwin, stopping at Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek, Kununurra, Timber Creek and Katherine Gorge. Each day you will pass through different scenery and terrain with fantastic photo opportunities along the way.

Day 21 - Darwin
Arrive into Darwin to spend the next 3 nights. Australia’s northern most city, is a flourishing, thriving modern city with a year round tropical climate. Here you can enjoy the fantastic cuisine down at the waterfront, relax in the parklands or enjoy the art and culture. The Mindil Beach and markets are a must do experience.

Day 24 - Red Centre Self Drive
Fly onto Ayers Rock to begin your incredible Red Centre Adventure on a one way journey from Ayers Rock to the Outback town of Alice Springs.

Day 29 - Cairns
Arrive into Tropical North Queensland to spend the next 6 nights in Cairns. Fringed with palms trees and surrounded by crystal clear water and warm waters, Cairns will be the perfect ending to your trip downunder. Ideal for touring, we suggest a day trip out to the Great Barrier Reef and a scenic Skyrail journey to the quaint village of Kuranda. We also suggest spending time in the town itself, visit the many shops, restaurants and bars along the Esplanade. Stroll through the delightful botanical gardens and the impressive lagoon or head north to visit Palm Cove, the lovely Trinity Beach and Port Douglas.
