What to expect

Take a campervan tour from Melbourne, Adelaide, and Darwin to Alice Springs, stopping at the region’s most famous landmarks along you go. Take a campervan ride down the world-famous Great Ocean Road and Oodnadatta Track, trek up the Grampians to the Pinnacles, meander about Wilpena Pound, see the dawn over Uluru, explore the magnificent Kata Tjuta gorges, and gaze at the scenery from Kings Canyon.

Day 1

Get on the road westward from Melbourne to Geelong and the world-renown surf resort of Torquay. The Great Ocean Road, widely regarded as one of the most picturesque routes in Australia, begins its ascent from that point. Get a feel for a temperate rainforest that is both old and unique on a guided walk. Admire the massive trees that are indigenous to the region. Go on to Loch Ard Gorge and the Twelve Apostles before spending the night in Warrnambool.

Day 2

Start the day by taking in some more sights along the Great Ocean Road. Then, go into the Grampians National Park, a region teeming with stunning natural scenery and Aboriginal history. After learning about the Dreaming era at the Brambuk Aboriginal Culture Centre, we’ll go on a climb to the Pinnacles to take in breathtaking vistas of the Grampians.

Day 3

Explore the Grampians on foot, stopping at The Balconies, Reeds Lookout, and the base of the tallest waterfalls, McKenzie Falls. After you leave the Grampians behind, you’ll make your way through Horsham and the picturesque Loch Lel. Then, you’ll bridge the renowned Murray River and arrive in Adelaide.

Day 4

You have arrived in South Australia, the starting point of your quest. Please be at the Adelaide Central YHA no later than 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time of 6:30 in the morning. Get out of Adelaide and on your way to the picture-perfect small town of Quorn in northern South Australia. As you make your way into Wilpena Pound, a rocky mountain amphitheatre, after lunch, take in the breathtaking vistas of the Flinders Ranges.

Day 5

Take a meandering rural route back to Quorn, passing through decaying colonial-era homesteads and rough mountain ranges. As you make your way through Warren Gorge’s orange granite spires, stop to see the rare plants that grow there. Traverse the paths outlined by gnarled trees and low-lying native flora as you make your way around Dutchman’s Stern, a little but picturesque peak in the Flinders Ranges.

Day 6

Coober Pedy, known as the “Opal capital of the world,” should be your next stop after Quorn. Houses built into the hillsides house the inhabitants, who have to endure the region’s very scorching temperatures by living underground. Visit the opal mine, an underground home, and the town on a guided tour when you get there.

Day 7

We leave Coober Pedy and go towards Yulara via the Moon Plains, the Dingo Fence, Breakaways Reserve, and beyond. Get your neck pillow and iPod charged up and ready to go. So far, the campervan vacation from Melbourne, Adelaide, to Alice Springs has been jam-packed with excitement, and the following two days are sure to be just as exciting.

Day 8

If you get up early enough, you can see the dawn over Uluru. The Anangu people place a high spiritual value on this magnificent sandstone formation; while the day is young, take a stroll around its base and appreciate it. You may also peruse the Cultural Centre’s vast collection of arts and crafts made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Day 9

Kata Tjuta, one of the Red Centre’s most prized attractions, is yours to discover today. The Olgas are a cluster of red rocks with domes that rise dramatically from the desert floor. Believing them to be 500 million years old, they are holy to the Anangu people, much like Uluru. Before heading to Watarrka National Park, make your way back to camp for lunch.

Day 10

Central Australia’s counterpart to an oasis, Watarrka National Park has 300-meter-high sandstone cliffs, concealed waterholes, fern woods, chasms, canyons, and caves. Along the Rim Walk, you will be able to see the Garden of Eden, the Amphitheatre, and the Lost City, which are the main attractions in this area.
