Australia North to South: Darwin to Melbourne

Get out your Essential Aussie Experience bingo cards out and tick ‘em off as we travel around this amazing land and explore Aboriginal culture. Ready? Go!
Now's the time to explore Australia on your terms with this tour that's affordable for young travellers. You’ve got just over two weeks in Australia, so what are you going to see? Everything! Travelling south from Darwin, tour Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks — the old stomping grounds of Crocodile Dundee (that reference kinda dates us a bit...) — and check out some of the most diverse wildlife around. From there, head to Katherine Gorge and decide if all the pictures you’ve seen have done it any justice (spoiler alert: they haven’t). Hop on a flight to the Red Centre and experience the magic of Uluru before rounding it all off with the scenery along the Great Ocean Road to Melbourne. Getting lost in this hip city's laneways and cool cafés is a pretty great way to end an Australian adventure.

No need to say goodbye to the Great Ocean Road just yet! Continue travelling along the road with the group making visits to Loch Ard Gorge and the 12 Apostles along the way. It’s no wonder that the 12 Apostles are the star of the show on the Great Ocean Road. They are the kind of landmark that somehow finds a way to be more stunning in person than in photos. Gaze in wonder at smooth pearlescent bays surrounded by clear, blue water, flanked by yellow-washed cliff faces, and feel the wind whipping through your hair. Then travel past world-famous surf beaches before walking through the rainforest one last time in Great Otway National Park.
