We’ll show you all the best spots, introduce you to the locals and we’ve packed in heaps of extras too – 4WD trips to the Bungle Bungle, Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek in the remote and rugged Kimberleys, into the magnificent Karijini National Park and a sunset tour on an outback cattle station. An indigenous guide will take you through the ancient Mimbi Caves. There’s boat cruises to get up close and personal with nature in Kakadu National Park, Monkey Mia and the outback wonder of Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge), a glass bottom boat at Coral Bay, sunset cruise at Argyle Dam and so much more!

You will experience the local characters, fun evenings around the campfire, magnificent and diverse scenery, encounter amazing wildlife and discover hidden gems that you would never otherwise get to see.

What Our Customers Say

silh

Thank you very much for a very proficiently run tour – as travellers who hadn’t motorhomed previously, we put our faith in the tour guide (and the GPS), and you certainly didn’t let us down – we were full of confidence in you and bearing in mind that you were keeping an eye on all 14 vans whilst letting us have the freedom to roam, you always had answers to any problem and you were never fazed about our issues. It was a great time with a great crowd, and we will be back for more. –  Judy and Dave, NZ
