Day 1 Darwin/Katherine

Farewell the sultry streets of Darwin and journey south to the tiny township of Adelaide River. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the pools at Edith Falls before making tracks to Katherine Gorge. Choose between a relaxing sojourn through this spectacular area by boat, or paddle down Katherine River in a canoe, watching out for beady eyes lurking on the riverbank. Arrive at the historic Springvale Homestead for a night under the clear desert sky.

Day 2 Kununurra

Crossing the border into Western Australia, the tour continues to Lake Argyle for a cruise along its calm waters. Keep eyes peeled for an abundance of native Australian wildlife, including the cranky crocodile - so be sure to have cameras at the ready. With an appetite built up, it's time to partake in a quintessential Australian Outback experience, a sausage sizzle lunch. If time permits, perhaps cool off with a swim in a croc-free pool before heading back to set up camp.

Day 9 Broome

Discover the grim history of the infamous Boab Prison Tree, once used to hold local outlaws, before arriving on the clear shores of beautiful Broome. With its romantic pearling history, turquoise waters, red sandstone cliffs and atmospheric Chinatown, it is well worth staying on in Broome for a few more days. In fact, visitors usually don't want to leave!
