Highlights

Flexible Vacations

Go on a walking tour of Woomera to discover the many rockets on display, or spend your time in the museum learning all about the interesting history.

Time For You

Uluru is one of those places you could spend a lot of time at. And we recommend you do. Arrive early in the Red Centre to soak up the spirituality.

Iconic Sites

Things get deep in Cooper Pedy, that legendary Aussie town that lies largely under the ground. Visit churches, schools and homes all marbled with opals.

Sustainable Travel

Sleep soundly knowing that wherever you wander with AAT Kings, you’re contributing to the protection of the destinations and communities you visit.

Natural Wonders

Salt lakes and South Australia go hand in hand. Prepare for your white-out at Lake Hart, a vast pearly plain made all the more dramatic by the pindan soil that surrounds.

Itinerary

image map

There’s something starkly beautiful about the Australian outback. The pindan soil, silvery gums, horizon-busting skies, vast swathes of sun-baked nothingness. This is your backdrop as you cross from the Northern Territory into South Australia, ready to get deep at your destination. Your Coober Pedy tour, known as ‘the opal capital of the world’, is all lunar landscapes at the surface, and psychedelic colours underground. Locals not only mine rainbow-hued opals in a vast network of subterranean tunnels, but also live here, go to church here and send their kids to school here. You’ll get to stay at a hotel built into a rocky hillside right in the heart of this quirky town.

  Hotel: Desert Cave Hotel

  Included Meals: Dinner

It’s hard to imagine landscapes more dramatic than those you’ve experienced so far. But nature ups the ante at Lake Hart, a vast saltpan that sparked a community in the 1930s. Today, it’s all but deserted, adding to the ethereal atmosphere. The vastness of the South Australian outback was no doubt one of the reasons why it was chosen to become the world’s largest military land base. Believe it or not, Woomera has been a testing base for atomic bombs, ballistic missiles and satellite boosters. Mull over that en route to SA’s natural harbour of Port Augusta.

  Hotel: Majestic Oasis Apartments

  Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

The Wadlata Outback Centre on your Port Augusta tour was created to decode some of the countryside you’ve been traversing over the past two days. Come face-to-face with giant ripper lizards, journey back in time to when dinosaurs roamed this land, and meet some of the people who first owned, explored and settled the region – as well as some of those who live here today. There are fossils and more opals, and interactive exhibits; have you ever tried Morse code? All this outback is thirsty work. Thankfully the Clare Valley is on the horizon. Gather in the cellar door at historic Knappstein Wines to find out just why their riesling takes home so many awards. Their other drops are pretty tasty, too. 

  Hotel: Crowne Plaza Adelaide

  Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner with Wine

While your AAT Kings journey comes to an end, we seriously hope you have plans to linger in (and around) the South Australian capital, ready for your next Adelaide tour. From its wineries to its epic Central Market, there’s a reason why this part of the state attracts some of Australia’s most innovative bakers, makers, growers, producers and vintners. Dig in! 

  Included Meals: Breakfast
