Outback Spirit ---- Visited: 2 Times
Listing id: 106
In the early 1860’s two expedition teams set out to cross the Australian continent from South to North. In 1860 Burke and Wills departed Melbourne to explore the unmapped and unknown interior, arriving on the shores of the Gulf of Carpentaria in 1861. In that same year, John McDouall Stuart set off from Adelaide to cross the continent, arriving at the northern coastline east of Darwin in 1862.
The story of these brave explorers is fascinating. It’s even more so when you can follow in their footsteps and imagine what it would have been like all those years ago. We’ll follow parts of their legendary expeditions, but we’ll also divert off the explorer trail to show you highlights, some of which you may not have even heard of. For example the "Lost City" near Cape Crawford, where you’ll take an incredible half day tour into this hidden treasure by helicopter.

Oz Tours Safaris ---- Visited: 2 Times
Listing id: 107
Our 15 Day Central Australia Desert Safari showcases what most visitors’ think of when imagining the Australian Outback; open space, endless dirt roads, red sand, extreme temperatures, no people and dangerous wildlife.
The Outback is as harsh as it is beautiful. It covers about 80% of the state and has 1% of the population but is an absolute must see when visiting Australia. The great difference to what you have ever seen before is fascinating and absolutely addictive. Even people who have travelled the whole world are taken by the beauty and absolute remoteness of the terrain. Stony deserts, saltpans and sand hills roamed by kangaroos, dingoes and eagles can be expected when travelling the Outback.
Learn the history and culture of the original inhabitants and the people who opened up this area to European settlers. We trace the pioneer stock routes, the path of the old Ghan rail track and stand at the very centre of Australia. Visit the sites and towns of a bygone era and take in the natural beauty of this ancient landscape of central Australia.
