Looking for a real Australian Outback experience for your students?

Take your school excursion to the next level with our custom designed Adventure and Safari tours. We offer fully catered 9, 14, 18 and 21 day tours to central Australia visiting places such as Woomera, Coober Pedy, Yulara, Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Alice Springs, Kakadu and Darwin. Our tours are educational and conducted by experienced staff who love what they do!

As Australians we know of the many great wonders our amazing country has to offer, though many of us only know these places by name and images. Many of us have never experienced or seen the vastness and wonders of it with our own eyes although it seems we all dream of seeing it one day.

You can experience everything our wonderful Australian landscape has to offer on one of our fantastic outback camping and adventure tours. With our luxury coach travel, custom camping equipment designed to handle the rigours of the Australian Outback and our friendly and helpful staff to guide you, both teachers and students alike are sure to love immersing themselves in the many sights and cultural activities on our outback tours.
