About The Tour
A spectacular adventure awaits you on our Sydney to Darwin Tour as you visit iconic sights in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Alice Springs and Darwin along the way. Spend a night in Canberra on the way from Sydney to Melbourne, then enjoy the stunning coastal scenery of the Great Ocean Road as you continue your journey east. Once you arrive in Adelaide, you will say goodbye to the ocean for a while and head north, making your way into the heart of Australia. Get ready for a real outback experience as you explore the Red Centre, visiting iconic sites including Coober Pedy and Uluru, and spending the nights camping under the stars. The adventure continues up the Stuart Highway, finally arriving in Darwin, your gateway to Kakadu & Litchfield National Parks. Along the way you will have plenty of chances to spot Australia’s unique wildlife in their natural habitat, and a heaps of amazing photo opportunities.
This tour provides great flexibility for your journey from Sydney to Darwin. Our Sydney to Darwin tour is divided into bite-sized journeys, so you can spend more or little time in the main destinations at the end of each leg of your tour. This means you have more time to relax for an extra couple of days, a chance to explore a new destination or just get straight onto the next part of your journey to Darwin. Just select the dates of each leg of your tour when making the booking. All accommodation is included on all parts of the journey, but we leave the accommodation in between tours up to you, so you can decide to stay the night at a fancy hotel or spend it outside, sleeping under the stars – the choice is completely up to you!
