Australia South to NorthMelbourne to Darwin
Buses and 4x4s and boats oh my! Is there a better way to explore somewhere new than from a few different vantage points? We didn't think so either. This 19-day tour allows you to experience Australia from land, water and even underground. (Seriously! Just wait until you get to Coober Pedy.) From Melbourne to Darwin, your itinerary will include amazing stuff like rainforest walks in Great Otway National Park, wine tasting in Clare Valley, awe-inspiring sunsets at Uluru, and even a crocodile-spotting boat cruise.
