Show / hide full Day by Day Itinerary

Pre-Tour Arrangements for Interstate Travellers

Your adventure begins with a flight to the beautiful city of Adelaide. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The rest of your day is at leisure.

❱ 1 night: Mercure Grosvenor Hotel or similar

Day 1: Adelaide to Coober Pedy via Port Augusta (BLD)

Adelaide travellers will be met at home and transferred to the Central Bus Station to join the tour. Interstate travellers will be picked up from their hotel.

An early start this morning as we board our luxury coach for a great 4 day getaway to the South Australian Outback.

★ Once onboard, you will be provided with a delicious boxed breakfast & coffee to begin your day’s journey.

The coach travels through Adelaide’s northern suburbs through to Port Augusta. After a brief stop for a picnic style lunch, we continue north stopping at Glendambo for a refreshment stop.

★ We continue to Coober Pedy, one of Australia’s most fascinating & unique Outback towns.

On arrival in Coober Pedy, we check into the Desert Cave Hotel, the only international class hotel in Coober Pedy.

Tonight, indulge in a special welcome dinner at the hotel’s restaurant.

❱ 2 nights: Desert Cave Hotel

Day 2: The fascinating Painted Desert & the spectacular Breakaways (BLD)

★ After breakfast, we set off into the Tirari Desert to discover an amazing & mysterious group of hills & sandstone.

The mine gives visitors a wonderful insight into the origins and working of an underground opal mine.

This truly amazing sight features a unique mix of beautiful colours which have taken over 80 million years to create. Bright sunlight brings out vivid colours such as ochre yellow, oxide red & deep rich brown which contrasts with crisp whites & jet blacks. We tour into an area near Mount Barry Cattle Station and the ‘Moon’ Plains. This area has been used by Australian film makers for many feature films, due to the beauty and clear sky’s here.

★ Later, we visit the fascinating Breakaways range, a conservation park that covers almost 15,000 hectares of majestic arid scenery.

The area is home to almost 60 native flora species including acacias, mallee and eremophilia. It is also home to a variety of wildlife, including red kangaroos, euro, echidna, numerous bird species and the fat-tailed dunnart.

Tonight, enjoy a drink in the bar before enjoying a delicious indoor BBQ meal at Umberto’s Restaurant at our hotel.

Day 3: Coober Pedy to Port Augusta via Woomera (BD)

★ After a delicious breakfast at our hotel, we begin a fascinating tour of Coober Pedy’s unique highlights.

As well as being world-famous as the location of some of the world’s most brilliant opal discoveries, Coober Pedy is unique due to its lunar like landscape and its ‘dugouts’. Due to the intense heat on many of the summer days, most of the population live underground which provides the occupants with relief from the heat.

★ We visit St Peter & Paul’s Underground Church, a spectacular Serbian Orthodox excavation as well as an underground home before stopping at the award-winning Umoona Mine & Museum.

The mine gives visitors a wonderful insight into the origins and working of an underground opal mine.

★ Later, we set off travelling south along the Stuart Highway to Port Augusta for our overnight stay.

This evening, we enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner at our hotel.

❱ 1 night: Standpipe Motor Inn

Day 4: Port Augusta to Adelaide, Wadlata Outback Centre & the Arid Lands Botanic Garden (BL)

★ After breakfast, we visit the Wadlata Outback Centre in Port Augusta.

Here, we enter the amazing tunnel of time where you are transported to the time when dinosaurs roamed the mountains which are now known as the Flinders Ranges. Learn all about the days of the Ghan Railway line to Alice Springs & Outback Australia.

★ Later, we continue to the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden.

Established in 1993, the Botanic Garden researches, conserves & promotes the wider appreciation of Australia’s arid zone flora whilst offering spectacular views to the ancient Flinders Ranges. The lands are home to thousands of highly evolved plant communities that are specially adapted to thrive in an environment where temperatures are extreme and drought can last for decades. This rare side-by-side combination of arid and marine environments, together with a fascinating regional and cultural history, makes this botanic garden very special.

Later, we continue on your journey back to Adelaide, arriving in the late afternoon.
Adelaide travellers will be met on arrival at the Adelaide Central Bus Station and transferred home by chauffeured vehicle.

Post-Tour Arrangements for Interstate Travellers
