Melbourne to Alice Springs Overland

Travel from Melbourne on a 10-day overland odyssey covering Australia’s mighty south. Weave your way along the acclaimed Great Ocean Road past the Twelve Apostles and London Bridge, take a scenic hike to the Pinnacles in the Grampians National Park, marvel at the orange-rock spires of Warren Gorge and the unusual underground mining town of Coober Pedy, and wind up deep in the Outback. Discover the cultural harmony and raw beauty of Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon, and get an insight into the deeply significant First Nations history in the Red Centre and beyond. This classic road trip is all the best bits of southern Australia, with all the hassle taken care of, so you can focus on admiring the wide brown land in front of you.
