Insider Tips

Day 1: Fly into Darwin and relax.

Day 2–4: Kick off the adventure with Lords Kakadu & Arnhemland Safaris. This award-winning tour operator specialises in unique experiences for small groups, with trips to Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Koolpin Gorge, Bamurru Plains and Davidsons' Arnhemland Safari Camp. 

Day 5–6: Bed down at Bamurru Plains (a 30-minute flight from Darwin), where you can spy on crocodiles, jewel-bright birds and other discerning travellers from the comfort of your boutique bungalow.

Day 7: Fly back to Darwin and have a seafood feast at Rachael’s Seafood Shack, by the harbour. (If you wanted fish any fresher, you’d have to catch it yourself.) 

Day 8-9: Hop on a flight to Alice Springs (a two-hour flight from Darwin) for the jaw-drop rugged beauty of the Red Centre. See Uluru-Kata Tjuta on a camel or a Harley Davidson and explore Kings Canyon, Simpson Desert or Devils Marbles. 

Day 10: When you feel like you’ve got a real taste of the Red Centre, catch a flight to Adelaide (flight time from Darwin: three hours, 35 minutes) and soak up the city’s love of food and drink. Embark on a laneway bar crawl (make sure you include the drinking dens on Peel Street) and have dinner at Africola, Duncan Welgemoed’s colourful, casual and award-winning tribute to his native South Africa. If you’ve got room for pudding, visit one of Adelaide’s fashionable dessert bars, which pair cakes and cocktails.

Day 11: Adelaide is perfectly positioned for day trips: sip fine wine and craft beer in the Barossa Valley (an hour from the city centre)

Day 12: Hit the coast: the Fleurieu Peninsula is just an hour and 20 minutes away by car.

Day 13: Drive back to Adelaide, then catch your flight back to London.
