Outback Tours Australia

Nothing quite captures the essence of Australia like the Outback.  For most travellers from across the globe, an Australian Outback tour is an absolute must to capture seemingly endless stretches of open space, observe the amazingly well-adapted wildlife, share the intriguing stories and traditions of the Aboriginal culture, gaze in wonder at starlit skies and photograph iconic landmarks and converse with the unique characters that call the outback home.

The Red Centre is considered the spiritual heart of Australia and most popular region for outback tours in Australia, with incredible desert landscapes characterised by rich red soils and the iconic landmarks such as Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and Mt Conner. The Anangu people of Uluru have been the traditional custodians of this region for at least 30,000 years, balancing the intricate relationship between people, plants, animals and the majestic landscapes, with several outback tours providing the opportunity to share the story of this ancient land through indigenous eyes.

For visitors wanting an extended Australian outback adventure, a multi-day tour from Alice Springs through to Uluru will provide opportunities to spot the amazing flora and fauna that have evolved to thrive in this arid environment including numerous skinks, the iconic Thorny Devil, bushbirds, goannas, raptor birds, Kangaroos, Common Wallaroos and fascinating insects. The impressive Kings Canyon also provides the opportunity to take a Rim Walk and marvel at the sandstone rock walls, towering more than 300 metres above the valley floor, with lush gardens and contrasting green cycads below. For visitors wanting to experience a 4WD outback tour across a sprawling outback station, Mt Conner located within Curtin Springs Station, is perfect to wander off the beaten track and learn more about the pioneering history of this majestic region.

Further south, Arkaba is nestled amongst the ancient landscapes of the Flinders Ranges, famed for beautiful sculpted ranges, spectacular deep gorges, striking river red gum creek lines, abundant wildlife and beautifully restored homestead accommodation. The geological history of the area is world-renowned and combined with the Aboriginal rock art, impressive fossil remains and European settlement history, is one of the most fascinating regions to visit for an Australian outback adventure. Arkaba is one of the best locations in Australia to see Macropods due to the year round pockets of water along with many bushbirds and parrots.
