Wayoutback Australian Safaris


This three day Darwin to Alice Springs adventure tour brings you from Australia’s Top End to the Red Centre. You will have the opportunity to paddle along the peaceful waters of Katherine Gorge, soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools, stop for a cold drink at the historic Daly Waters Pub (home of Australia?s first international airport!) and explore the precariously balanced Devils Marbles.



Day 1 – Darwin to Nitmiluk National Park (Lunch / Dinner)

You will be collected from your Darwin accommodation at approximately 6.00am and then our adventure through the ?Territory? to Alice Springs begins. The afternoon is spent at Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park which is owned by the Jawoyn Aboriginal people. Ancient sandstone has been carved away by the Katherine River to create a deep and picturesque gorge. You may like to take a boat cruise or paddle a canoe (seasonal) through the peaceful water (both optional and additional cost). It?s a little further on to our overnight camp near Mataranka.

Day 2 – Nitmiluk National Park to Banka Banka Cattle Station (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

A great start to the day, is a soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools, a lush oasis fringed by paperbark trees. No trip to the ?Territory? is complete without a visit to the Daly Waters Pub, an important watering hole for explorers and drovers in days gone by and now a great spot for a cold beer, a bit of history and a ?fair dinkum outback experience?! Our day winds to a close at historic Banka Banka Cattle Station where we camp for the night.

Day 3 – Banka Banka Cattle Station to Alice Springs (Breakfast / Lunch)

We pass through Tennant Creek and then further along the track are the Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu) which are a collection of gigantic granite boulders magically balanced on top of one another. Later in the day we cross the Tropic of Capricorn (only 20% of the Northern Territory lays south of this point) then a short time later we arrive into Alice Springs.
