Adelaide

Adelaide to Gawler is 41 kilometres

Adelaide is a city of great visual harmony and classical elegant style, superbly set beside the River Torrens between the Adelaide Hills and waters of Gulf St Vincent. The wine and festival capital of Australia, Adelaide is a place to experience the buzz, culture and convenience of a big city without the frustrations. The city centre, surrounded by parklands, is a charming blend of historic buildings, wide streets, groovy shops, street cafés and restaurants. And because Adelaide is known as the 20-minute city, you can experience it all on a series of easy short walks. You'll find a mix of restaurant strips dotted right across the city - Rundle Street East for alfresco dining. The Parade at Norwood for great Italian food. Gouger Street for seafood and Asian fare. And anything goes on O'Connell and Melbourne Streets in North Adelaide. Festivals and events occur with remarkable frequency for a city of Adelaide's size. The Adelaide Bank Festival of Arts is one of the most innovative arts festivals in the world, while the Adelaide Fringe is now the second biggest in the world after Edinburgh.

Gawler

Gawler to Clare is 92 kilometres

Gawler is located on the Sturt Highway 45 kms from Adelaide and is one of the first major settlements north of Adelaide and the western gateway to the Barossa Valley.
It was established in 1839 as a stopping point at the foot of the Mount Lofty Ranges on the Adelaide and Murray River route. The buildings in town reflect this era. The town is a major commercial and agricultural centre situated where the North Para River, flowing from the Barossa Valley, meets the South Para. The pretty town is considered one of South Australia's most historically important towns. A section of the original town has been declared a State Heritage Area to preserve the historic streetscapes. The riverside parks are ideal for picnics and relaxation and the local reservoirs and rivers are suitable for fishing.

Clare

Clare to Crystal Brook is 78 kilometres

Named for the Irish county, the town and valley of Clare were introduced to wine by Jesuit priests who planted the first vines at Sevenhill in 1848. The order still produces table and sacramental wines from the Sevenhill Cellar which is one of more than a score of valley vineyards making premium wines. The Old Clareville Museum reflects the town’s dependence on the noble grape, but also pays due credit to the grain farmers, orchardists, beekeepers and sheep farmers who have also contributed to Clare’s prosperity. In contrast, the Old Police Station Museum traces the regional heritage through a collection of furniture, clothing and other personal paraphernalia. Wolta Wolta, the stately home built by pioneer settler John Hope in 1846 is still in the Irish migrant's family. The homestead was badly damaged in 1983 bushfires, but it has since been restored and is open to the public on Sundays.

Crystal Brook

Crystal Brook to Port Pirie is 29 kilometres

Located 198 km north of Adelaide and 111 metres above sea level, Crystal Brook is a pleasant service centre in the heart of some of South Australia's most productive sheep and wheat country. Arriving at the town from the south the visitor is immediately struck by a sign proudly declaring that this is 'Where the Flinders Begin'. Equally impressive are the grain silos (eternal symbols of Australian wheat country) and two handsome stands of tall trees. But the charm of this sleepy township lies in the main street with its shady peppercorn trees and its feeling that time has stood still.

Port Pirie

Port Pirie to Port Augusta is 92 kilometres

Port Pirie, South Australia’s first provincial city, is also an important interstate and international seaport. Millions of dollars worth of grain and lead, zinc and silver produced in Broken Hill Associated’s huge smelters cross the wharves each year. Originally known by the Aboriginal name of Tarparrie, the naming rights finally went to the work horse of the state’s sailing fleet, the schooner John Pirie. A replica of the ‘handy and roomy little craft’ is on display in the Port Pirie Corporation office. The only memorial dedicated to the Australian veterans who fought in wars in Korea, Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam is located in Memorial Park. There is a wealth of history locked into the city and its buildings and one of the standout structures is Cairn Brae - built in the early 20th century for the Moyles family, founders of a state soft-drink empire. Falling commodity prices in the first two years of the second millennium, which forced the mining giant Pasminco to the wall, have stunted Port Pirie's production, but the townsfolk are confident that the glory days will return.

Darwin to Port Augusta 

  • Driving Time - 31 hours
  • Distance - 2720 kms

Darwin

Darwin to Daly Waters is 588 kilometres

Darwin is is the tropical capital city of Australia's Northern Territory. It is a beautiful, fascinating tropical city – a melting pot of people and cultures that prides itself in its unique and friendly laid-back lifestyle. Perched on a peninsula with sea on three sides, Darwin is an excellent base to explore the natural attractions of World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land. Founded in 1869, its population rapidly expanded after the discovery of gold at nearby Pine Creek in 1871. While a sophisticated, modern city in its own right, it is also one steeped in history, one that has endured many hardships on its way to establishing itself as the gateway to Asia.
It is the home of Northern Territory commerce and business and with its world-class natural and cultural attractions it is also a thriving hub of activity in terms of tourism, nightlife and retail.
Its colourful history has contributed to the Darwin's cultural diversity - more than 50 nationalities make up its 100,000 population, including the area's traditional landowners, the Larrakia Aboriginal people. Darwin’s diverse cultural landscape is evident in its weekly markets, range of restaurants and regular cultural festivals and events such as Darwin’s annual Territory Day, when the sky is set ablaze with fireworks.

Daly Water

Daly Waters to Tennant Creek is 404 kilometres

Daly Waters is located approximately 274 kilometres south of Katherine near the junction of the Stuart and Carpentaria Highways. It is serviced by the famous Daly Waters Pub, a true outback pub armoured with corrugated iron, draped with bougainvillea and bedecked with decades of memorabilia. Daly Waters has the amazing distinction of being Australia's first international airfield. It has an interesting aviation history. It was a centre for the London to Sydney air race of 1926, a World War II airforce base and a refuelling stop for Qantas. The original Qantas hangar and associated buildings located between the town and the Stuart Highway can be easily explored.

Tennant Creek

Tennant Creek to Alice Springs is 508 kilometres

Although a modest outback town, Tennant Creek is the Territory's most important settlement after Darwin, Alice Springs and Katherine.
Located 377m above sea level and enjoying an annual rainfall of 470mm, Tennant Creek is the most important township on the Barkly Tablelands. With a population of over 3500, Tennant Creek is the administrative centre for an area larger than the state of Victoria. It is situated at the meeting of the Stuart and Barkly Highways and is 504km north of Alice Springs and 978km south of Darwin.
Since the gold rush of the 1930s, the people of Tennant Creek have prided themselves on self reliance, community involvement, and the ability to provide their own entertainment. The spirit of those early days’ lives on and we hope you will take the time to capture it during your stay. Visitors can even try fossicking for their own gold. The traditional landowners of this area are the Warumungu people, and they recognise a number of sacred sites in the area, including the region's most famous landmark - the Devils Marbles - about 100km south of the town.

Alice Springs

Alice Springs to Coober Pedy is 688 kilometres

In the heart of Central Australia, between the East and West MacDonnell Ranges, sits Australia's most famous outback town. Alice Springs is a thriving, spirited outback centre - as famous for the personality of its locals as the natural wonders that surround it. The history and heritage of Alice Springs overflow with a rich cast of characters - in the late 1800's and early 1900s only the most intrepid pioneers braved its rugged environment. From Afghan cameleers to flying doctors, today it is possible to pay homage to their legacy at various historic sites around the town. A great base from which to explore its surrounding natural wonders, the town itself defies most travellers' expectations combining a strong sense of its outback history with all the convenience of modern facilities. Most of all, it is the uncomplicated yet vibrant personality of Alice that leaves a lasting impression on visitors. The West and East MacDonnell Ranges straddle the town and their spectacular gorges and chasms set the scene for a range of adventure activities. Beyond the Ranges stretch the Simpson and Tanami deserts, where Aboriginal people have lived for thousands of years. Their art styles and Dreamtime stories unlock the mysteries of the desert and give meaning to its otherwise intangible beauty.

Coober Pedy

Coober Pedy to Roxby Downs is 450 kilometres

Opal was first found in Coober Pedy on the 1st of February 1915 and since then has been supplying the world with the majority of gem quality opal. Coober Pedy today relies as much on tourism as the opal mining industry to provide the community with employment and sustainability. Coober Pedy has evolved in to one of the most unique places in Australia and perhaps the world. It is a cosmopolitan town with a population of 3,500 and over 45 different nationalities. The relaxed and friendly lifestyle of the town has made it a breeding ground for cultural tolerance, diversity and acceptance. Coober Pedy is probably best known for its unique style of underground living. There is a range of underground accommodation (as well as above ground if you prefer). There are authentic underground homes to explore as well as underground museums, potteries, opal shops, an art gallery and, of course, opal mines.

Roxby Downs

Roxby Downs to Port Augusta is 256 kilometres

Roxby Downs is a pleasant modern town, located 92 km from the Stuart Highway, 265 km from Port Augusta and 571 km from Adelaide, which houses mine workers of the Olympic Dam and their families. It has educational, health, sporting, leisure, shopping and cultural facilities, all set out along pleasant quiet streets.

The Olympic Dam Copper Uranium Mine & Processing Plant is a huge mineral deposit with a vast ore lode, which has made it one of the biggest mining operations in Australia. The mine is estimated to produce 45 000 tonnes of copper cathode, 1900 tonnes of yellow cake, 27 000 ounces of gold and 555 000 ounces of silver.

Accommodation in Roxby Downs is first rate and there is a variety of restaurants and cafés. The town has a cultural precinct recently constructed with a Visitor Information Centre, Booking Office, Interpretive Display, Art Gallery, Auditorium, Theatrette, and the Dunes Café.
