Wonderful time on my own doorstep

27 Nov 2013 - 07 Dec 2013

Living in Australia but never having seen much more than my home town, I decided to do this tour to see something different. Once again contiki did not disappoint, tour manager and especially bus driver were very knowledgeable and helpful - great people! I would recommend this tour to overseas and Australian travellers - you'll have a great time!

This tour truely has it all. It is one of my favourite tours I've ever done with Contiki. I'm a Person that likes to be impressed by nature, and truely that happened. We had a small Group (26 people) and although Contiki is traveling fast paced you have enough time time to relax during this trip. I appreciated it not to have big traffic, Clubs or Pubs in the outback. It's silent, breath-taking but NOT boring. It's a tour, also relaxing. The ideal combination for me. I'm looking forward to do more scenic Contiki tours. This nature touches your heart. ;-) I love it. Rebecca the tourmanager was very kind and funny. Australia forever.

Outback Adventure (Start Darwin)

21 Mar 2012 - 31 Mar 2012

Brilliant tour for an Aussie from a big city. Different world really. Ulura was always going to be my highlight and the experience was everything I hoped for! Loved walking around the "rock" as well as champagne sunset. Heliflight around Ulura was a better experience than fixed wing flight around Kakadu. Great little outback town stops along the way. A couple of hikes in the heat - great for me and not so great for others on tour. Excellent natural scenic photography. Giant termite mounds an early highlight. Swag night sleeping under the stars another highlight (even saw a shooting star). Trip not a good idea if you absolutely hate hot heat and humidity or flies and other insects (but this just added to the experience for me - just need sunscreen, good insect repellent and maybe a fly net).
