Itinerary

The below itinerary can change due to cultural reasons, seasonal changes, operational logistics and accessibility.

Day 1

Pick Up Darwin Accommodation

Litchfield National Park

Welcome to the tropics - your Topdeck trip starts now. Two national parks in one day? Yep, it's a thing. Kick off your trip with a short drive down Stuart Highway into Litchfield National Park. Swimming under a tropical waterfall? This seems like just the day to do it. Next up: World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. Swimming in salt water lakes is nice but check the waters first, or you'll have unwanted crocodile guests.

Day 2

+

East Alligator River

At half the size of Switzerland, there's a lot of Kakadu to see. Get ready to rock early, because we're going deep into the park to check out some Aboriginal Rock Art sites and cruise the East Alligator River to see how many crocs we can snap (on our cameras). We've also got special permission to enter Arnhem Land for a lesson in traditional Aboriginal hunting methods and a cruise down the river. Lunch is your choice today. Climb to the top of Ubirr Rock Crocodile Dundee style and take in the fiery sunset.

Day 3

+

Kakadu National Park

The only thing more terrifying than the plastic clog variety are the crocs that can be found in Kakadu. Luckily, the areas we're heading to today are saltwater crocodile free. If this place looks familiar, you've probably seen Crocodile Dundee one too many times. Still too scared to swim? Take a scenic flight for a bird's eye view over the escarpment that marks the borderline of Arnhem Land. When you're done, take in a game of lawn bowls at the Country Club and enjoy a good ol' fashioned BBQ with the locals.

Day 4

+

Katherine Gorge

You've got a front row seat for the amazing wildlife and scenery while canoeing along the Katherine River - the Gorge is yours to explore. But if you'd rather not be up the creek with a paddle, take your trip to the next level by upgrading to a three-gorge cruise and venture even further into the wilderness. We'll spend the afternoon absorbing the majestic Edith Falls - #nofilter necessary.

Day 5

+

Mataranka Thermal Pools

Drift off in the steamy thermal springs of Mataranka in the heart of the Never Never. Never never thought you'd find this in the outback, hey? This trip is thirsty work, but you'll soon be able to re-hydrate with an ice-cold beer at one of Australia's best-known watering holes, the Daly Waters Pub. Located 'in the middle of somewhere', this place was the site of Australia's first international airport back when flights to London took eight days. Seriously.

Day 6

+

Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu)

To round off the morning, we've got some pretty epic granite boulders for you at the sacred site of Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles). Next: a technology lesson to phone home about. Think your old Nokia was out-dated? Wait till you see the Overland Telegraph line at the Barrow Creek Hotel. Text mum to let her know you're coming home safe in Morse code.

Day 7

+

The Kangaroo Sanctuary

Get to know Alice with a free day, in the epicentre of Australia. Jump into the joey nursery at Kangaroo Dundee's place (aka the man who should win 'mother' of the century for hand-rearing orphaned joeys) and hold a baby kangaroo while you're there. Travel through time with a historic look into the amazing services of the Royal Flying Doctors or get lost in the mystery of the Australian outback at Desert Park Gardens. Art galleries, souvenir shops and all of the supplies for your next adventures are all here in Alice.

Day 8

+

Yulara

We're hitting the red ground running as we pull into Yulara. It's off to the breathtaking Uluru in the afternoon for a guided tour, and a glass of bubbles as the glow of sunset morphs through 50 shades of red, providing a rockin' live show. Tonight hone your Aussie BBQ skills and cook your own steak (or vege burger). Welcome to the outback, mate.

Day 9

+

Uluru

Start your day with a big bowl of 'oh my god' thanks to a breathtaking sunrise back at Uluru. Follow in the footsteps of the traditional owners of this sacred World Heritage site with a full base walk, where you can escape the crowds and check out hidden waterholes. Keep watch for wedge-tailed eagles, spinifex hopping mice and thorny devils. Or splurge on a Harley ride or scenic flight and see the original Top of the Rock. Later, join a meditative dot painting class in the Aboriginal Art Markets and give yourself a free astrology lesson, stargazing at the endless Southern night sky.

Day 10

+

Kata Tjuta (the Olgas)

Get ready for some soul searching as we venture into the heart of sacred Kata-Tjuta (The Olgas) and walk amongst the 36 red sandstone giants through the Valley of the Winds. After a Dreamtime archeology lesson, and a drive into Watarrka National Park, live the life of a jolly swagman as we sleep under the stars in custom swags. Cue campfire stories and marshmallows tonight.

Day 11

+

Kings Canyon

If you would walk 500 miles (steps), then you'll make it through the toughest part of the Rim Walk - Heart Attack Hill. The Kings Canyon Rim Walk is the real deal and the most famous canyon in Oz. Think age-old cycads, eroded dome shapes, a visit to The Lost City - and that's not even the best part. The sheltered valley and waterhole of the Garden of Eden makes today bloody bonza (translation: awesome).

Day 12

+

Cairns

Make your own way and take to the skies heading North East to meet up with your east coast crew in Cairns.

Day 13

+

Cairns

Just like a double-shot macchiato in the morning, two days in Cairns will get your heart started. Meet and greet the crew in the afternoon and start planning tomorrow's adventures.

Day 14

+

Cairns

Like the thought of spending a whole day exploring the only place in the world nestled between two World Heritage areas? Go on then. Ramp up the adventure with hot air ballooning, horse riding, bungy jumping, rafting and all those things on your tick list. Save time for a snorkelling or scuba trip to the Great Barrier Reef and take home that elusive selfie with a photobombing fish.

Day 15

+

The Whitsundays

Feeling like you need more air in your hair? Leave the bus and board your own private yacht for our overnight sailing trip in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands. Normally a toy for the rich and famous, today it's all yours to learn the ropes while sailing in paradise. More of a land-lover? Take the diva option and let the crew do the work whilst you feast, swim and snorkel.

Day 16

+

Daydream Island

Keep those sunglasses on as the blinding white sands of Whitehaven stretch before you like a 7km sea of diamonds and swim with the resident Maori Wrasse at Blue Pearl Bay. Back on board, keep adrift of your seafaring skills by helping to set the sails or steer at the helm as we set course for land and two nights at Daydream Island Resort.

Day 17

+

Daydream Island

Did someone say buffet breakfast? (Over) indulge, recharge and relax with water sports, beach volleyball and fish feeding right off the jetty. Appropriately named, Daydream Island has walking tracks, palm trees and secluded beaches. In keeping with tradition, a looong list of activities has been provided ranging from watersports to mini golf and tennis. Grab a cocktail from the swim up pool bar then make a date with a hammock and get in your happy place overlooking the pools.

Day 18

+

Emu Park

Get out of the hammock and follow in the footsteps of Captain Cook as we head south to Emu Park. Then spread out on the sand, crack a ""cold one""(beer) and confuse yourself with the rules of beach cricket with your mates. Enjoy the Aboriginal experience where you get to learn about totems and artefacts, see some traditional dancing, try your hand at boomerang throwing and make some artwork to take home all before dinner.

Day 19

+

Myella Farm

Trade the beach for the bush via Rockhampton, the beef capital of Australia. Take a selfie as you pass by the Tropic of Capricorn. This afternoon enjoy an authentic outback experience at a 2,500-acre cattle station. Embrace your inner cowboy and prepare yourself for an adventure-packed afternoon of horse riding, motor biking and cow milking. Or go walkabout on a real Aussie farm to find that right spot for the perfect outback sunset. Enjoy a hearty home cooked farm style dinner before you take to whip cracking and lassoing.

Day 20

+

Fraser Island

Wake up and smell the coffee. Kick off your day with a farm breakfast before burning down the highway to catch a ferry bound for the world's largest sand island, with the longest beach in Queensland - all 75 Miles (120kms) of it.

Day 21

+

Lake McKenzie

Fraser is literally one huge pile of sand - as if someone dropped the Sahara Desert into the Pacific Ocean and scattered it with dingoes and rainforests. Four-wheel-drive along the beach highway to mingle with the Pinnacles Coloured Sands (considered a place of good luck for the Indigenous Butchulla women), Eli Creek and the Maheno Shipwreck before testing out your stand up paddling skills on the crystal clear waters of Lake McKenzie.

Day 22

+

Gold Coast

Next stop: BrisVegas (aka Brisbane). Don't let its namesake fool you - there are no late-night wedding chapels in the sunshine state capital. Get your bearings on a walking tour of the city centre, before burning down the highway to the golden sandy beaches of Surfers Paradise. Welcome to the Gold Coast.

Day 23

+

Springbrook National Park

Leave the Gold Coast glitz behind you as we head to Springbrook National Park and its major draw card, Natural Bridge. Next, swap the national park for surf vibes in Byron - where you can burn incense, sip chai, become a yoga teacher and win cash for being a Cheeky Monkey all in one day.

Day 24

+

Byron Bay

Anti-McDonald's and anti-anything mass produced (but pro juice bars, beer gardens and beards), Byron is glitzy on the outside but small town-hearted underneath. Hit the shops, test out those newly acquired surfing skills, paddle a sea kayak, or watch whales breach from the Lighthouse in winter. This is the town where peace and tranquillity go to relax. You should too. Or jump out of a plane. Byron doesn't care as long as you're happy.

Day 25

+

Crescent Head

Let the wave chasing begin as we cruise down the coast to the surfing mecca of Crescent Head. Grab some BBQ lunch before we hit the beach for a private surf lesson on one of the best surfers in the world. Here's your chance to become a bona fide surf master. Kelly Slater, who?

Day 26

+

Hunter Valley

Try a barrel of a different kind and dip your toes into an oak barrel (literally) in the Hunter Valley today. Swill some vino and taste some of the best grapes in the country before we roll onto the beachside hustle and bustle of Sydney.
