Is this trip right for you?
• Looking for a medium adventure with like minded folks then this is the trip.

Day 1: (Lunch, Dinner)
Departing Alice Springs at approximately 6 .00 am , our adventure through the ‘ Territory ’ to Darwin begins . Just north of Alice Springs is the Tropic of Capricorn ( 80 % of the Northern Territory lays north of this point ) . Further along the track are t he Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu) which are a collection of gigantic granite boulders magically balanced on top of one another. Our day winds to a close just north of Tennant Creek at historic Banka Banka Cattle Station where we camp for the night.

At times, produce and products may be substituted as supply dictates and Wayoutback cannot guarantee the ingredients contained in these alternatives. Whilst all of our guides are trained in remote touring, they are not nutritionists and neither they nor Wayoutback Australian Safaris can advise of all ingredients contained in each food served on tour and are not responsible should an allergic reaction occur.
