Detailed Description

Experience the spectacular phenomena of Australia’s Outback on this 13-day tour starting in Australia’s northwest city of Broome (after a stay in Sydney). Located next to pristine beaches and rocky hills, the city offers the history of a seaside-mining town with surroundings that make the city almost unattainable to outsiders. Flying over the Kimberly Region gives you the rich green of the trees and the rush of watching Kimberly’s incredible scenery unfold beneath you. With sweeping mountains, whitewater rapids, and a massive gorge, northwestern Australia gives you the serene beauty that few people ever experience.

Traveling to northern Australia takes you to Darwin, Australia’s most northern city comprising the culture of its surroundings in its architecture, museums, and history. Darwin gives you access to Australia’s north in and out of the city. Depart from Darwin and fly deep into the stunning remote area of Arnhemland; the wild terrain of Australia comes alive, along with the cultural connection of Aborigines to the land. With local fishing traditions, this area of Australia gives you the heart of the region’s history, on cave walls and in your guide’s oratory.

This tour of Australia is rich in Australian culture; it is a basket full of panoramas, lively wildlife, colorful locals, and unique topography. Whether the wet or dry season, the hum of didgeridoos fills the moonlit air, the moon sparkles along the dark water, and the rainbow serpent painting pops out of the cave wall. This trip offers the heart of an Australia everyone wished they could see, but few ever will.
