Saw the most incredible things on this trip - really felt we got to experience Australia in a way that not many people get to see. Our guide was incredible, a source of so much information, fun, and everything organised to perfection. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes an adventure and wants to experience outback Australia! Highlights of the trip were sunrise at Uluru and camping in 'swags' under the stars. The scenery on the hikes was breathtaking, and the towns we visited along the way like another world. Couldn't recommend it higher.

Amazing trip, what a chance to discover Southern Australia and the Northern Territory with the aborigine culture. One more thing: be prepared to do lots of bus...
