Journey to the Outback: Wrap Up

It’s time to wrap up Henry and Alex’s journey to the outback. We sent this talented duo into the “real” Australia, to discover what we love most about the Northern Territory. They came face to face with salt water crocs, uncovered the Devil’s Marbles and gawped at the spectacular Uluru plus so much more! You can check out their full adventure on our Tumblr page.

Here’s a little rundown of the awesome time they had in Australia’s Northern Territory…

Kakadu National Park

Kakadu National Park is abundant with wildlife, including buffalo, 250 species of birds and obviously saltwater crocodiles. The boys made eyes with a few salties in Mary River.

Henry and Alex cooled off in the Twin & Jim Jim falls and chilled out in natural infinity pools in Kakadu National Park.

Mataranka region/Banka Banka Station

The boys went kayaking down the epic Katherine river. Ancient sandstone has carved away an impressive gorge in Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park is owned by the Jawoyn Aboriginal people.

After a hard day’s kayaking it was time for a dip in the Mataranka Thermal pools and for a few well earned beers at the Daly Waters Pub.

Banka Banka/Alice Springs/Uluru

On the way through Tenant’s Creek the boys spotted the Devil’s Marbles, huge granite boulders and arrived into Alice Springs to visit an Outback Camel Farm and Mount Ebenezer – yes there are camels in the Australian Outback!



Next up was the ‘big Rock’ aka Uluru! The guys took a guided walk around the base and then camped out in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. There’s nothing like waking up to that view!




Kata Tjuta/Kings Canyon/Alice Springs

The boys reached their penultimate destination Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and woke early to hike through the “Valley of the Winds”.

Again Alex and Henry had an awesome camping spot for the night on Kings Creek Cattle Station and woke to stunning views of Watarrka (Kings Canyon).


On their final day they checked out the impressive rock formations of the Amphitheatre, the Lost City and the tranquil “Garden of Eden”.
