Outback Spirit have Australia covered with adventures from Queensland's Cape York to Tasmania's South Cape; from East Coast Islands to Western Wildflowers plus the marvels and landscapes of Australia's stunning interior.

Our journeys incorporate the finest accommodation available, specialised vehicles, fine food and wine and something we could all do with a little more of – and that’s perspective. When you realise you’re one of a handful of people to see exquisite rock art that’s thousands of years old, or you’re overlooking a rugged outback landscape once covered by sea, you gain a sense of perspective that prevails over everything else.

Small Groups. A Better Experience
Small Groups. A Better Experience

From the very beginning, Outback Spirit has focused on offering a more personal, intimate and rewarding experience on its adventure tours. Of course, that can only be achieved by travelling in a small group of like-minded travellers. Across our entire range of adventures, you’ll travel in smaller groups of between 19 and 26 passengers, depending on the itinerary. Advantages of small group travel are many, and include:

  • A more intimate experience compared to large group tours
  • Quicker and easier to get in and out of vehicles, boats etc.
  • Make long lasting new friendships and really get to know your fellow travellers
  • Access areas that are unavailable to larger groups
  • Stay in smaller, boutique hotels and lodges
  • Enjoy more time and space at local attractions
Fully Inclusive
Fully Inclusive

Outback Spirit’s adventures are well known for their all-inclusive nature. All meals, attractions fees and activities are included in our tour fares, giving our guests peace of mind and an added level of convenience. The only things you’ll need to reach into your pocket for on-tour are drinks at dinner, a few coins for the laundromat or the odd souvenir!

Every Outback Spirit tour includes iconic and exclusive attractions and activities. Travel with us and you’ll see the most spectacular parts of Australia with access to areas that many other operators simply can’t get to.

Passionate & Experienced guides
