Australian Outback Tours
A journey into the Australian Outback is something that everyone must complete at least once in their lifetime. Often described as “the middle of nowhere”, the Australian Outback comprises a massive 81% of the continent. Taking up a piece of every state except Victoria and Tasmania, the Aussie Outback is expansive, and it is hard to imagine the sheer size of it. While you are trekking the Outback you will come across some pretty other-worldly locations, several-million-acre cattle stations, and rich history and culture of the hundreds of Indigenous nations that have called Australia home for more than 50,000 years.
Day trips are a great way to get a taste of what the Outback has to offer. We have a variety of day explore the outback, whether you wish to see crocodiles jumping from the water to feed, swim in the pristine water holes of Kakadu & Litchfield National Park, watch the sunset over sacred Uluru, or even cage dive with some of the biggest reptiles in the world, there is a day trip to suit everyone.
The Top End of Australia is the northern most part of the Outback. Home to several magnificent national parks such as Kakadu, Litchfield, and Arnhem Land, the Top End offers some of the country’s most remote and unique landscapes. We offer multiple Top End tours to check out this amazing part of Australia.
The 3-Day 2-Night Kakadu and Litchfield Buffalo 4WD Tour will take you deep into the Outback, full of amazing waterfalls, native wildlife, and adventure. Highlights include the unbelievable termite mounds, a crocodile cruise and relaxing in pristine streams and waterfalls. This is a fully guided tour, including all meals and tented camping. The 3 day 2 Nights Kakadu and Litchfield 4WD Expedition is very similar but includes camping under the stars in swags, rather than tents. Finally, the 3-day 2-night Kakadu and Litchfield Dragonfly 4WD Tour with Comfort is exactly what the name says. You will adventure in style and sleep in private accommodation and permanent tents.
For a truly authentic look into the Outback of Australia, join the 5-day 4-night Top end and Arnhem land Adventure tour.

You will visit Arnhem Land, which is a largely untouched and remote area, and a hidden gem that very few visitors see. Not only will this experience open your eyes to the beautiful and intriguing way of life that has existed for thousands of years, you will make unforgettable memories and see a unique part of the world.
There are five tour options available for those who wish to explore the red centre of Australia. The tours range from 3-4 days in duration and the sleeping facilities differ between camping, swags, and permanent tenting. The vehicle used in the standard tours is a minibus, however the 3 Day 2 Night 4WD Red Centre Goanna Dreaming Adventure and the 3 Day 2 Night Red Centre Cockatoo Dreaming Budget Safari use a fully equipped all-terrain vehicle, making the journey more comfortable.
