Across the Top (21 days)  

Across the Top! It stirs the imagination; this trip is designed to showcase the best of any Gulf country trip, with nothing left out. Starting in the centre of Australia in Alice Springs we will guide you up the best part of the Binns Track driving north through untamed country with stops at the amazing Tower Rock and the beautiful Policeman’s Waterhole in the Davenport Ranges. We will spend a night at Daly Waters enjoying the music and colour of the famous hotel before embarking on the Savannah Way as it snakes its way through the remote Gulf country. There are three separate Lost City rock formations in the Gulf country and we will visit each one of them, in fact your tour fee includes the helicopter and ground tour at the Lost City at Cape Crawford. I have also allowed 2 days and 3 nights at Lorella Springs station which is a huge cattle property stretching all the way to the coast, allowing us time to fully explore the station tracks and visit many of its pristine waterholes. Of course we have included Lawn Hill National Park and Karumba as well as a cruise on the still waters of Cobbold Gorge. The tour will conclude in the quaint town of Malanda besides the beautiful Malanda Falls.

Tour Fee Includes
Camping & National Parks fees throughout the tour, entry to Cape Crawford & Lorella Springs Station, Helicopter Flight at Cape Crawford & Cobbold Gorge Tour.
