Outback Adventure Tour
The Corner Country Explorer Tour has a focus on Aboriginal culture, history, nature and outback landscapes. Along the way we be more active with hiking, a river cruise or canoeing (optional). There will be historic towns, monuments and pubs to explore. If you are lucky you might unearth a dinosaur fossil, gemstone, or nugget of gold. We will look for kangaroos, emus and the majestic wedge tail eagle. Or just sit back, relax and dissolve yourself into those big outback Australian horizons.
Everywhere you travel you will experience great hospitality at Outback Beds locations. Stay with the people that live and work in the Outback, enjoy home cooked meals and view sunsets that are larger than life. Stay in unique accommodation ranging from luxurious house boats to oasis-like homesteads, historic buildings, or renovated farm worker’s quarters. You can even sleep outside under the stars in front of a camp fire.
Like all our tours you can extend this tour to travel at a slower pace, spend more time doing the things that interested you, or visit somewhere you have always wanted to go.
