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

I enjoyed watching this video and it brought back so many wonderful memories.  I am really looking forward to taking another trip with Adventure Caravans! Would you please tell your staff what a pleasure it was meeting them and what a wonderful job they did on this trip and hopefully I will get to tour with them again soon.
