Australia North to South Darwin to Melbourne
You've got just over two weeks in Australia, so what are you going to see? Everything! Travelling south from Darwin, tour Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks the old stomping grounds of Crocodile Dundee and check out some of the most diverse wildlife around. From there head to Katherine Gorge and decide if all the pictures you've seen have done it any justice (they haven't!). Make your way towards the Red Centre and the magic of Uluru, followed by a stop in Coober Pedy, the neat underground town. Round it all off by taking in the scenery on your way to Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road.
Explore Kakadu National Park, spot crocs on a river cruise, clink glasses at an Outback pub, awe at majestic Uluru, sleep underground in Coober Pedy, marvel at the 12 Apostles along the Great Ocean Road.
