Dining Summary

  • 7 Breakfast (B)
  • 2 Dinner (D)


  • Sydney: Contiki acknowledges the Traditional and Torres Strait Island owners of the land, sea and waters of the spectacular Australian continent. Dual-naming reflects that, as we explore this remarkable land, we recognise and respect Indigenous custodianship of a unique, ancient culture and country.

Included Experience

  • Darwin: We’ll uncover the very best of this cultural hotspot, with a local guide on hand to answer all our burning questions.
  • Kakadu National Park: Climb to the top and be rewarded with a sunset to rival the African savannas. You’ll half-expect a lion to walk into the frame!
  • Kakadu National Park: See the work of Aboriginal artists and craft-makers and learn more about the indigenous tribes.
  • Kakadu National Park: Some Aboriginal art on Nourlangie Rocks has been around for 20,000 years! It makes our nan look like a spring chicken.
  • Katherine: Kick back and take a refreshing dip in the crystalline plunge pools, surrounded by monsoon forest. Pure bliss!
  • Litchfield National Park: One for the bucket list. Take it easy in the relaxing plunge pools, or swim under the cascading Florence Falls.
  • Litchfield National Park: WTF? You say. Trust us. This a weird but unmissable highlight at Litchfield National Park.
  • Uluru: Start the day the right way – by enjoying the sunrise over Uluru. This should be on everyone’s #lifegoals list.
  • Kata Tjuta: Walk around this sacred site. See the Valley of the Winds and Walpa Gorge, with its towering domes that change colour in the sunlight.
  • Uluru: Does it get any better than a 'Big Brekkie' cooked up on the BBQ? We think not.
  • Uluru: Salute this sacred landmark with drinks and nibbles as you watch the sun set. A moment you’ll replay in your mind forever.
  • Kings Canyon: Climb the 'stairway to heaven' to the aptly named Garden of Eden, Kings Canyon.
  • Alice Springs: Off we soar to our next destination.
  • Uluru: Chill with your new BFFs over dinner at Uluru.

Make Travel Matter®

  • Kakadu National Park: Immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture at Pudakul. Meet a local family in their home and learn about the significance of the Didgeridoo.
