Only have 10 days to spare? No worries

In a country as big as Australia, you could spend a lifetime exploring its endless coastlines, ancient rainforests and vast deserts. But you can squeeze a lot into 10 days with our jam-packed itineraries. Combine wine, wildlife and wilderness in the South Australian Outback. Hike across the magical Kimberly region. Or marvel at the ever-changing colours of the West Coast on a 4WD safari from Perth to Broome. With small groups, a legendary local leader and opportunities to learn about the stories and traditions of Australia's First Nations peoples, we reckon 10 days is more than enough to fall under its spell.

Highlights of our 10 day Australia itineraries

A group of travellers swimming in Lake Argyle in the Kimberley

Cruise Lake Argyle

Lake Argyle is Australia's biggest manmade lake. To give you an idea of its size, it's equivalent to about 18 Sydney Harbours! Explore this pristine environment on a cruise over the still waters, looking out for crocodiles, marsupials, rare birds and other native fauna that have settled here. It's a top spot for wildlife watchers.

Explore the Ikara-Flinders Ranges

Get lost in the magic of the Flinders Ranges, the largest mountain range in South Australia. Created over 800 million years ago and home to the Adnyamathanha people for over 45,000 years, these rugged peaks hold many stories. Explore stunning valleys, gorges and creeks and learn about the region's unique wildlife and flora.

Piccaninny Creek in Purnululu National Park, Western Australia

Explore the Kimberley region

Nestled in the northernmost region of Western Australia, the Kimberley is one of Australia's final frontiers. Practically impenetrable, the region is made up of a vast network of gorges, vast plains and snaking rivers. Experience the incredible Bungles Bungles, listen to Gooniyandi Dreaming stories at Mimbi Caves and spot crocs in Geikie Gorge.

Bathe in Leliyn (Edith Falls)

Fed by a series of tumbling waterfalls, this natural spa is a prime spot to cool down in the Outback heat. The pool is lined with native paperbank and pandanus trees, which are versatile bush materials traditionally used by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples.

Internet access is widely available in Australian cities, towns and tourist hubs. Please note that wi-fi and internet access will be limited or unavailable in the Outback and remote areas.

You sure do. Everyone travelling with Intrepid is required to purchase travel insurance before the start of their trip. Your leader will record your travel insurance details on the first day of the trip. Due to the varying nature, availability and cost of health care around the world, travel insurance is very much an essential and necessary part of every journey.

Australians are not required to be covered for hospital care due to being covered by Medicare. However we strongly recommend that Australians have a domestic travel insurance policy that covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. It's also strongly advisable that Australians have current ambulance cover in the case of an emergency evacuation or incidents requiring ambulance transportation.

For more information on insurance, please go to our Travel Insurance hub.

Drinking water from taps in Australia is considered safe, unless otherwise marked. For environmental reasons, try to use a refillable water bottle rather than buying bottled water.

Intrepid is committed to making travel widely accessible, regardless of ability or disability. That’s why we do our best to help as many people see the world as possible, regardless of any physical or mental limitations they might have. However, we’re always happy to talk to travellers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them towards the most suitable itinerary for their needs and where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.
