HIGHLIGHTS

This tour starts at the Iconic Bondi Beach in Sydney to the gravitational red center of Australia and beyond, a journey over a fascinating mix of unique scenery, nature, culture, pioneering history, flora, and fauna along the way.

We travel along the historic Oodnadatta Track and visit the edge of the Simpson Desert, Lake Eyre, and experience billion-star accommodation as we camp under the stars at Dalhousie Hot Springs, here you can relax in the 36c waters while staring up at the Milky Way.

Visit the remotest hotel in the world before continuing on to Uluru (also known as Ayres Rock)

After we visit Uluru (Ayres Rock) you can trek the stunning Kings Canyon Rim Walk before we ride you through some of the Northern Territories best scenery to finish at Alice Springs.

Accommodation is best available and aimed to give you a choice at each night, keep it cheap and camp each night, or stay in luxury at places like Uluru or Kings Canyon, the choice is yours. However, If you are expecting 5 star luxury the entire way round, or do not want to camp the odd night, you had probably better give this tour a miss.

This tour in our opinion is one of the best adventure bike riding trips you can do,
