From the tropics of Darwin to the headlands of Victoria, this trip takes in the best of the Australian Outback. With Ayers Rock, Kings Canyon, Coober Pedy and the endless salt lakes of South Australia – there’s nowhere in the world that will make you feel so free.
Drive the long straight Stuart Highway. Along the way, checkout the Aboriginal sites along the MacDonnel Ranges. Then bolt through Alice Springs on your way to Ayers Rock & The Olgas and catch a sunset viewing of the Rock in all its magificence! Cross the SA border and watch the landscape change as you reach Coober Pedy and the spectacular Breakaways National Park.
If Coober Pedy doesn’t blow your mind then the surreal salt pans a little further down the Stuart Hwy will...dried up lakes with all the salt you could ever hope to see in one area! As you near Adelaide the landscape changes again as the Eyre Peninsula stretches out into the deep cold Southern Ocean - and Kangaroo Island.
If you’re heading to Melbourne then stop off at The Grampians and marvel at the size and beauty of Victoria’s highlands. On your way to Melbourne head down to the Great Ocean Road and see the world-renowned 12 Apostles and famous surf beach Bells.An epic adventure through 3 states and the heart of Australia!
Keep going – I’m tired so I’m gonna stop writing now. I did this trip a few years ago, and I’ll never forget it.
