The Big Walkabout (Start Sydney – From Apr 2019)(Multi Share,start Sydney, End Darwin)
Welcome to the kind of trip that makes you question who you are. One minute you’re in a city downing kaffir lime cocktails & razor clams thinking “I’m so metro”, next minute you’re sleeping in a swag in the outback saying “I could live like this.” Start by exploring Sydney, then climb your way up the pretty East Coast of Oz before legging it to NT for some truly Australian experiences.
