About The Tour
There isn’t a more fascinating way to make the trip from Melbourne to Darwin, than by joining us on our Melbourne to Darwin Tour! The 11 Day Tour begins in Melbourne, heading to Adelaide, prior to making the journey north to Darwin. The tour covers many iconic sights such as the Great Ocean Road, Grampians National Park, Flinders Rangers and Uluru - just to name a few. Accommodation is a combination of dormitory and sleeping in swags – an awesome way to take in the spectacular night sky of the Milky Way. This is an unforgettable trip across Australia taking in the awesome outback as you journey from south to north.
This Melbourne to Darwin tour is the perfect choice when booking your next adventure! The Melbourne to Darwin tour is separated into small sized journeys, giving you the chance to spend more time in the main destination at the end of each tour. This means you have more time to see new places or simply join the next leg of your tour to Darwin. When making the booking online, just select the dates that best suit you. Your accommodation is included within your journey, but we have left the accommodation between the tours, completely up to you. You can book yourself in a fancy hotel or simply go camping – the choice is yours!
