Your Adventure Awaits

A short but wonderful adventure awaits you with this three day, two night trip from Darwin to Alice Springs. As we journey from the top to the centre, we're taking you to the peaceful Katherine Gorge, Mataranka Thermal Pools, historic Daly Waters Pub and the precariously balanced Devils Marbles.


Day 1: Darwin to Katherine Gorge National Park
The adventure from Darwin to Alice Springs begins early, with collection from your Darwin accommodation beginning at 6:00 am. We spend the day on the road and arrive at Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park in the afternoon. Learn from the Jawoyn Aboriginal people about this special place and marvel at the ancient sandstone carved away by the Katherine River, leaving a deep and picturesque gorge. If the season permits, there is the option to take a boat cruise or paddle a canoe through the water, before we call it a day and head to our campsite nearby. 
Meals: Lunch, Dinner


Day 2: Katherine Gorge to Banka Banka via Mataranka
Relaxation to start the day as we soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools, a natural oasis of clear, warm water, surrounded by stunning greenery. After a swim, we visit the iconic Daly Waters Pub, key to the outback experience, and finish the day at Banka Banka Station, a cattle station north of Tennant Creek where we will camp for the night. 
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 3: Banka Banka to Alice Springs
On the final stretch to Alice Springs, we pass through Tennant Creek and head to Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu), a collection of gigantic granite boulders precariously balanced on top of one another. After this stop, we cross the Tropic of Capricorn before arriving into Alice Springs around 5:30 pm. 
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

I was recently attending the 3 days 2 nights with WayOutback at Uluru, Kata-Tjulu and Watarrka national Park and It was really amazing. Great experience and even greater guide: Alex. He was really an added value to our trip.
