After a 35-day tour travelling through the Northern Territories and down the coastline of Western Australia, the group will have made many lifelong memories on this spectacular trip!

This escorted tour has remarkable diversity, is one of our favourite routes and also one of our longer road trips, of which is necessary, in order to take in the enormity of just how much this country has to offer!

If you’re planning a road trip such as this one, then you might want to consider tying it in with wildflower season, which usually runs from June in the north until November if you’re down south of Perth. WA is renowned worldwide for its spectacular display of flowers!
