TOTAL OUTBACK ADVENTURE

Head into the golden outback for a truly Australian adventure!
1/3
DESCRIPTION:


Experience outback Australia like never before when you journey into the remote, vast landscapes of this country and meet some of the very colourful and friendly locals. Imagine exploring the diversity and wild desert plains of this land by air, you haven't seen Australia until you've seen it by air....

 

ITINERARY:

DAY 1

Your journey begins with a two hour flight to White Cliffs, a small outback town in New South Wales well known for opal mining and being so hot that the locals live underground in 'dugouts' to escape the blistering heat. An aerial view of the town looks abstract, like a thousand of tiny ant holes, on closer view they are actually thousands of open holes drilled by hopeful Opal miners. We lunch at the Red Earth Opal Cafe before heading underground for an Opal Mine Tour to reach a depth of 45 feet.

 

ACCOMMODATION: White Cliffs Underground Motel, White Cliffs

DAY 2

We depart White Cliffs after a leisurely morning and head towards the Oodnadatta Track where we make a stop at the Mutonia Sculpture Park at Marree. Here you will see the most unusual sculptures displaying the humour and inventiveness of outback Australians, be sure to bring your camera! We then depart for William Creek, another town on the Oodnadatta Track that puts the meaning into 'the middle of nowhere'.

ACCOMMODATION: William Creek Hotel, William Creek

DAY 3

Next we journey to one of Australia's most unusual places, the dusty lunar landscape of Coober Pedy. Along the way overflying the lowest natural point in Australia, at approximately 15 m below sea level - a phenomenal sight, Lake Eyre. Check-in to your underground hotel in the centre of town complete with underground bar and cafe before taking a Down n' Dirty tour where you will be supplied with a hard hat, torch and handpick to get down and get dirty fossicking for your own fortune. The evening is yours to explore this interesting town and dine at Umberto's restaurant.

ACCOMMODATION: Desert Cave Hotel, Coober Pedy

DAY 4

Today we join up with Arid Areas Tours to experience Mother Nature's best artwork - the Painted Desert. We travel by 4WD North-East through two cattle stations to the Arckaringa Hills, where we will be spending the night at Arckaringa Station taking in this ancient inland sea bed with its slopes and shapes including many different colours. Magical!

DAY 5

After your magical evening spent in the desert we make our way to our last stop on our itinerary, Broken Hill. This isolated mining city has often been referred to as the 'Capital of the Outback' and is home to many Australian Artists and some of Australia's best sunsets! A free afternoon can be spent exploring this fascinating city, or you may decide to visit the Silver City Mint and Art Centre, where you can view the world's largest acrylic painting by a single artist...Ando's Big Picture. This evening we take a Sunset Sculpture Symposium Tour. Later dine at The Palace Hotel made famous in the movie 'Priscilla - Queen of the Desert'.
