Escape on an Australian outback odyssey through the Northern Territory
Central Australia is a rugged land of Dreamtime legends, endless vistas and immense beauty. Our exploration of this part of the Northern Territory takes in Indigenous history and culture topped with a large dose of wonder. Discover the legends of the multi-hued monolith Uluru, Australia's most recognisable natural landmark, and marvel at the pristine beauty of Kings Canyon. Along the way, experience camping in the Australian outback in spacious, outback safari tents. The heritage and splendour of this ancient land will live on in your dreams long after the trip has ended (the tour code for this trip was previously PISC ).
