Enter a fascinatingly remote world when you join us for this RV tour through The Outback.

Words fail, photos may illuminate, but Ayer’s Rock is one of those places you must experience to really understand. Known now by its Aboriginal name, Uluru (pronounced ooh la roo) is one big rock! In sunlight it glows; in shadows it hides. Smooth graceful curves, crater-sized pock marks, 500-ft. cracks, dark waterfall lines. As an elephant touched by blind men, it changes perspective at every turn. While Ayer’s Rock will be a highlight of the tour, you’ll love The Outback as well: the stark silent beauty, the clear nighttime Southern Cross skies, the glimpses of Aboriginal culture. Our tour starts from Darwin, visits Kakadu, one of Australia’s best national parks, threads its way through The Outback of Northern Territory to Alice Springs, past historic roadhouses, and thence to Ayer’s Rock. Along the way we will encounter wallabies, kangaroos and the unique birds of this arid region, often surprised by the many parrots and finches that call this home.

Your registration includes rental of a late model Class C turbo diesel vehicles accommodating two to four adults and including double bed, gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, shower, toilet, air-conditioning/heating, pressurized hot & cold water, and radio/CD player. Also included are linen, bedding, and kitchen equipment.

This tour is the first of 4 separate tours in Australia & New Zealand, the other tours are:
Australia – Queensland / Australia – Sydney / New Zealand

Australia: The Outback

  • We had the best staff working our tour.  Absolutely loved the Jazz band!   We had such a great time that we booked 3 additional tours!  
    John & Patricia Pellegrino
  • “Excellent trip and leaders!”
    Len & Carole Adams
  • Wonderful Staff (Conrad, Clary and Ron on the Polar Bear tour) - I had car trouble, I had a cabinet fall right out of the wall, and I fussed about my transmission on the RV. I had slide covers full of heavy wet snow --- all these problems solved with cheerful and competent efficiency. A widow on my first alone adventure ---totally looked after. Thanks to these fellows - I am delighted with my experience.
    Linda Ellis – Polar Bear Tour
  • '...more than 15 years of retirement travel and this was our first real vacation!'
    Roger & Linda
  • “Bert and Shari truly lead adventurous caravans. We appreciate their flexibility and good humor.” “The new friends who made this entire journey with us and all the people we talked with along the way are treasures.” “We did and saw so much in the time we had and there is so much more that we were made aware of. It was everything I had hoped and more.”
    Ron & Carol Conkey
  • Regarding our 31-day Canadian Maritimes caravan Cindy and I would like to express how much we enjoyed the caravan with Rick & Sharon Gilbert and John & Sally Mincks. Both couples were outstanding and we would love to book any caravan they are involved with. We booked for the 2018 Big Sky caravan and hope you can assign one or both off them to that trip. We met many wonderful people and hope we have made some new life long friendships. We hope to meet up with Rick and Sharon at the Tampa RV show in January. The tour guides for our various bus tours were top notch, all added much information and interesting stories to the tour. Please give a big thanks to Roger in Quebec City, Roddie in PEI, Carolyn in Halifax and Paul on The Cabot Trail.
