Day 1 - Katherine Gorge

After an early morning start we travel on to Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) where we spend our afternoon. Ancient sandstone has been carved away by the Katherine River to create a deep and picturesque gorge. There is the option of a cruise or a seasonal paddle through the peaceful water (own cost). A little further down the road is our camp near Mataranka 

Day 2 - Mataranka Thermal Pools

A great start to the day is a soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools, a lush oasis fringed by paperbark trees. Once we are all relaxed we head onto a special destination. No trip to the 'Territory' is complete without a visit to the Daly Waters Pub. Experience the local culture and a great chance to have a cold beer. Our day winds to a close at historic Banka Banka Cattle Station where we camp for the night.

Day 3 - Devils Marbles

We pass through Tennant Creek and further along the track are the Devil Marbles (Karlu Karlu) which are a collection of gigantic granite boulders magically balanced on top of each other. Later we cross the Tropic of Capricorn, at this point only 20% of the Northern Territory lays south. We continue on the road until we arrive into Alice Springs where you will check into the Alice Springs YHA for your final night. 
Australia is a beautiful and remote place. While it is our intention to follow the itinerary as described, on occasion it may be necessary or desirable to make changes due to weather conditions and cultural significance.

This tour also operates from Alice Springs to Darwin.
