Welcome to the kind of trip that makes you question who you are. One minute you're in a city downing kaffir lime cocktails & razor clams thinking "I'm so metro", next minute you're sleeping in a swag in the outback saying "I could live like this." Start by exploring Sydney, then climb your way up the pretty East Coast of Oz before legging it to NT for some truly Australian experiences.

So much fun, great to meet new people and the optional extras were really good something you could never do if planning yourself in such a short amount of time!

It was an amazing experience! I was not sure what to expect but it was incredible! I liked starting out in the Northern Territory before moving on to the East Coast. I liked the diversity of the two locations and both groups got along really well. So much packed into one trip of a lifetime!

A very fun filled tour which lets you experience Australia to the max! Lots of included activities to get you mixing with the rest of the tour group but also to help you get the most out of your time in Aus. The optional activities which came as extras were also amazing with lots of variety. I ended up doing things I would never have imagined doing before.

Worth every penny. Couldn't have planned the same trip with the same budget on my own. Contiki takes a lot of the stress off a huge trip like this.

Foi uma experiencia fantastica, principalmente a parte do Outback Australiano. É diferente de tudo que estamos acostumados e é incrível se desconectar um pouco do mundo nesse lugar diferente e único.

Contiki was a great trip because they squeezed in so much with the amount of time the trip was, but not feeling so rushed. There are a lot of things that are not included so make sure you check that out before you pay. The tour guides are super enthusiastic with lots of information and advice for further travel also. Accommodation was a mixture of everything such as hotels, hostels, camping. I feel the group sizes are too big though - maximum 20/25 would be perfect. A group of 50 meant that either not everybody got the same experience and it was very touristy moving around as a 'herd'. Also there was quite a bit of drinking involved but that was more down to the ages of people on the tour, and not organised like this by the tour manager.

The trip itself is incredible value for money! The accommodation was always good (Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays was a huge highlight) with breakfast included everywhere (sometimes cooked by our very own Contiki team). There are so many inclusions- more on this one than on any other Contiki I have done previously. I could never have organised the same trip for myself at that price. The Me-Time Optionals are so well-organised and thought out, always at a competitive price. Our tour managers were amazing at organising the optionals and ensuring that they fit into our day and that we could sign up for them with friends for added enjoyment.
