Camping

Sleep Under the Southern Skies

When we say “camping adventure” we mean it!  During the day you are going to see and do a lot but when the sun goes down you’ll sleep Aussie bushman style in swags under the billions of stars that make up the Southern Skies and kick back around the campfire with a beer and sharing stories with your new friends.Sleep under the stars surrounded by Koalas in nearly every tree. You even get the chance to see endangered Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby in Warren Gorge.   

Participation and involvement is required from our passengers. Accommodation on tour is a mixture of national parks, campgrounds, bush camps (no facilities). When camping, we use individual swags provided by Nullarbor Traveller and passengers need to bring their own sleeping bags. (Our wet weather option is 3 person dome tents shared by a maximum of 2 people per tent)

Itinerary

Day 1 : Adelaide to Flinders Ranges National Park
We head out of the city pretty early, stopping for a quick coffee in Clare (a great wine region), and then continuing on to the southern Flinders Ranges National Park. There’ll be time for a stretch of the legs at Alligator Gorge, lunch in Quorn – home of the PichiRichi Railway – and a guided to the top of the ranges at Dutchman’s Stern. Tonight’s campsite is in Warren Gorge; keep your eyes peeled for yellow-footed rock wallabies, which have bounced back from near-extinction. Driving time is about 4.5 hours and we’ll walk about 2 hours. Tonight we bush camp at Warren Gorge which has toilets but no showers.  
Meal(s) included : Lunch, Dinner
Day 2 : The Eyre Peninsula & Coodlie Park
Prepare to encounter one of Australia’s best-kept secrets today: the Eyre Peninsula. Composed of incredible red-rock landscapes, a huge diversity of wildlife and very few travellers, this part of the world really feels like your own private piece of paradise. After a quick pit stop for lunch, it’s back on the road to Venus Bay, Talia Caves and the Lake Newland sand dunes (where adrenaline junkies can test out their sand boarding skills). In the afternoon we’ll pull in to Coodlie Park for a night’s stay on a working farm which is also our home base! Tonight you will share a meal and stories with travellers from our other tours sleep in our super cool swag huts and shower facilities are available. Please note that tomorrow you will be swapping buses and joining the other group coming from Perth. Today we drive approx 450km (5 hours) in total with stops along the way and walk about 1.5 hours  
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3 : Baird Bay (swim with sea lions & dolphins)
This morning we may be joining the group coming from Perth and going to Adelaide then you have the option to swim with the playful sea lions and dolphins at Baird Bay. This optional experience is operated by Baird Bay Eco-tours and at only $160 will be one you will treasure forever . Then its onto Murphy’s Haystacks, incredible granite rock formations sculptured into wondrous and weird shapes over millions of years then we head back to Coodlie Park Bush camp for more camp fire stories with your new friends Driving time today is about three hours and accommodation is back in the swag huts at Coodlie Park.  
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 : Mikkira Station & Port Lincoln
Motor along the Great Ocean Tourist Drive towards Elliston, checking out the amazing cliffs of Locks Well, then continue on to Port Lincoln for lunch. Stretch your legs with a wander around the town – we’ve put aside an hour here for you to stroll along the foreshore, survey the scenery or kick back with a cool drink in a café. Tonight we camp at Mikkira Station, a private campground surrounded by eucalyptus trees and neighbourly koalas. We drive for about four hours today, and walk for one and a half hours. Mikkira Station has toilets and shower facilities.  
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5 : Port Lincoln to Mt Remarkable

A full day tour Shark Cage diving is an optional extra and $395 plus and onboard fee of $100/$125 to enter the water depending on which company you choose. Choose the way of the Whalers and you’ll be visiting the remains of an old whaling station (where you’ll hopefully spot some kangaroos and emus), lunching in Lincoln National Park and stopping by Glen Forest Wildlife Park to hand-feed a few critters. Tonight we set up camp in Mt Remarkable. Today we drive for about four hours, and walk for two, if not doing the cage dive. We bush camp with toilet facilities at Mt Remarkable.  
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 : Mt Remarkable to Adelaide

Check out the rustic charm of this historic area. This overland adventure ends up on arrival in Adelaide. There’s no accommodation provided tonight, and make sure you have booked your accommodation prior to departure.

Extras

While everything on our tours is included in the price such as transport, accommodation, food and entry and national park fees, there are a few optional extra activities that we leave up to the passenger to decide if they want to do.   

Swim with sea lions and dolphins - Baird Bay  $160 p.p.
This is an amazing experience - you may have swum with dolphins at other places around the world but the interaction that you will have with the sea lions and dolphins at Bairds Bay will leave you breathless. Bairds Bay is a very sheltered bay on the Eyre Peninsula and passengers board the boat for a short ride to our first stop which is to swim with sea lions. This takes place in approximately 2 metres of water. It is a natural experience and the sea lions come into the sheltered lagoon to interact with us.

After this, we head further out into the bay to swim with the dolphins. This happens in four metres of water but is still within the sheltered bay. The tour is 3-4 hours, wetsuit and snorkel equipment is provided at no additional cost. We will need to know your intentions upon booking to give updated numbers to the operator. Payment is done on the day to the operator but must be booked in advance as places are limited.

 

Shark Cage Diving with Calypso Star Charters                     $395pp + $100 on board payment

Calypso Star Charters was the first one day shark tour in Australia and offers passengers the chance to get up close and personal with one the planets most feared creatures, the Great White Shark. Take a 2.5 hours cruise out to the Neptune Islands on this full day tour spending a minimum of 45 minutes in the cage with 7 other adrenalin junkies. 

The tour departs at 6.30am and includes breakfast, morning tea and afternoon tea.  Nullarbor Traveller passengers recieve a photos pack valued at $30.  

 

Shark Cage Diving with Adventure Bay Charters                                $395pp + $125 on board payment

This full day tour out to the Neptune Islands gives people the opportunity to shark cage dive with 5 of their adrenalin junkie friends or stay dry in the world’s first Shark Aqua Sub.  These guys are an eco-friendly, no chumming option, instead pumping out AC/DC underwater which apparently is the great whites favourite band!
