There’s only one bad thing about an Australia adventure in March: choosing where to go!

There’s no ‘best’ time to visit a country as big and diverse as Australia, but March is up there. March marks the arrival of autumn, which means temperatures start cooling down the Outback, waterfalls flow at full force in the Top End and turtle hatchlings scuttle their way to the ocean along the East Coast. Traverse the sunbaked landscapes of the Red Centre and tick off bucket list highlights like Uluru and Kings Canyon. Get lost (not literally) in the untamed beauty of Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain National Park. Or discover beaches, rainforests and First Nations culture in the Daintree and Cape Tribulation.

Both states have an abundance of natural beauty including jaw-dropping national parks and endless sandy beaches so settling the debate of the Northern Territory vs Western Australia is a hard one. Both bursting with Aboriginal culture, vibrant and multicultural cities, and more wildlife than you'll be able to spot, each region is breathtaking in its own way. 

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 travelers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them toward the most suitable itinerary for their needs and where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.
