Adelaide to Darwin Escorted Motorhome Tour Highlights

September 8, 2019

What a great time our Adelaide to Darwin escorted motorhome tour had travelling mid May 2019. We had two tours running in 2019, with this being the second tour starting in mid May and travelling for 21 days.  You can find out more about our next Adelaide to Darwin Escorted Motorhome Tours at https://www.gallivantingoz.com.au/motorhome-tours.

Grab a cuppa and watch the highlights of the escorted motorhome tour from Adelaide to Darwin:

This group had so many fabulous highlights as they travelled in their motorhome from Adelaide through the world renowned wine region of the Barossa to Clare Valley with the opportunity to sample some local produce and the local wines. It was then onwards for their first taste of outback Sth Australia, heading to Coober Pedy.  Here they had a fabulous time in this quirky town, known for its underground houses and opal mines. What a fabulous evening they had watching the sunset over the Breakaways.

Travelling further north, Uluru did not disappoint, as they watch the changing colours at sunset.  The Field of Lights certainly was something different too.   Nearby Kata Tjuta offered more opportunities for walking and exploring the stunning rock formations.

The group loved their opportunity to the Adelaide to Darwin escorted motorhome tour to learn more about the local Aboriginal culture at the Karrke Cultural Tour.  Nearby, what a great morning exploring the Kings Canyon rim walk – this was certainly worth the early start and energy for the spectacular views. A few days in Alice Springs kept the group busy as they discovered more about the worlds largest classroom, at the School of the Air.  And how enlightening was the visit with the Royal Flying Doctors service.  We included a day at the Alice Springs Desert Park which gives the opportunity to learn more about the desert flora and fauna.

The nearby MacDonnell Ranges was another opportunity to stretch the legs and discover the gaps, gorges and canyons.  Standley Chasm is always spectacular in the Western Mac’s. In fact there were plenty of memorable locations such as the Glen Helen Gorge and Simpsons Gap.  Over on the eastern side of the MacDonnell Ranges, the Trephina Gorge is a favourite, along with Emily and Jessie Gap.

Heading further north in the motorhome,  the group enjoyed time at Tennant Creek before a fun night at Daly Waters, an iconic outback pub.  And what a lovely morning the group had with a float and a soak in the thermal waters at Mataranka and nearby Bitter Springs.

The dawn cruise at Katherine Gorge certainly produced a few ‘wow’ moments, with the dramatic cliffs running straight down into the depths of the river. Its hard to believe how different this area looks in the wet season.

World heritage listed Kakadu National Park certainly impressed those on the escorted motorhome tour from Adelaide to Darwin.  A dawn cruise at Yellow Water Billabong gave the opportunity to say hello to salt water crocodile and a variety of birdlife.  Such beautiful colours at dawn also.  There was the opportunity to explore the amazing rock art and learn more about the ancient Aboriginal Culture in the park too, at the cultural centres and locations such as Nourlangie and Ubirr.  Although these areas have an important culture significance, the are absolutely spectacular too.  Taking a walk up to Nadab Lookout for the amazing views over the floodplains certainly left a lasting impression.

Nearby Litchfield National Park was also a highlight – who doesn’t love swimming at the bottom of waterfalls? Some lovely walks in this park too. This escorted tour travelling from Adelaide to Darwin in motorhomes had a fabulous final evening to the tour in nearby Litchfield Tourist Park before heading back to Darwin.
