You will be collected from your Darwin accommodation at approximately 6.00am and then our adventure through the 'Territory' to Alice Springs begins. The afternoon is spent at Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park which is owned by the Jawoyn Aboriginal people. Ancient sandstone has been carved away by the Katherine River to create a deep and picturesque gorge. You may like to take a boat cruise or paddle a canoe (seasonal) through the peaceful waters (both optional and additional cost). It's a little further on to our overnight camp near Mataranka.

Meals - Lunch - Dinner

A great start to the day is a soak in the Mataranka Thermal Pools, a lush oasis fringed by paperbark trees. No trip to the 'Territory' is complete without a visit to the Daly Waters Pub, an important watering hole for explorers and drovers in days gone by and now a great spot for a cold beer, a bit of history and a 'fair dinkum outback experience'! Our day winds to a close at historic Banka Banka Cattle Station where we camp for the night.

Meals - Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner

We pass through Tennant Creek and then further along the track are the Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu), a collection of gigantic granite boulders magically balanced on top of one another. Later in the day we cross the Tropic of Capricorn (only 20% of the Northern Territory lays south of this point) then a short time later we arrive into Alice Springs.
