Informative and immersive, our tours are for those looking to develop a true-blue understanding of Australia’s inner-workings – and have a great time while at it. We take one comfy, air-con equipped 4WD or minibus, load it up with a knowledgeable guide, a bunch of fellow adventurers, tents, swags and some packed picnics, then head out into the wilds. The whole outfit is far more your classic Aussie road trip than it is a standard charter bus tour – just with someone looking after the driving and navigating for you.
Our guides are an enthusiastic and informed bunch who get a real kick out of taking you through what they know and love about their country. They’ve all got comprehensive training in first aid, driving, fatigue management, environmental awareness and local history and geology, so you can expect your experience to be as enjoyable as humanly possible. We’re pretty proud of them.
From working cattle stations to well-appointed wilderness lodges, desert campsites to underground bunkhouses, the accommodation we use is all part of the ATA experience. Some of it may be a tad rustic, but we believe evenings by a campfire and nights in a canvas tent or swag are the best ways to meet the Outback.
The close working partnerships we’ve established with Indigenous communities continue to inform our understanding of the land, as well as inspire in our travellers an appreciation for one of the world’s oldest living cultures.
We’re big believers in sustainable tourism and big doers when it comes to reducing our carbon footprint. We use the eight principles of Eco Certification in all our on-ground operations, from selecting the campsites we stay at to maintaining our transport fleet and camping equipment.
Want to see both the Top End and Red Centre but not too keen on long driving days? We’ve packaged together some of our most popular trips with included flights and airport transfers. This also means you can get all around Australia by simply sticking with us.
