Tour Recommendations

by BecTravels11

Hello there! I was wondering if anyone has any tour recommendations for a 6-9 day outback adventure tour in January starting in Adelaide->Melbourne->Sydney. I am a 25 year old female coming from the US to Australia for the first time for a year on a work and holiday visa and I am traveling around Tasmania for a week first, then would like to go on a tour. I'll be basing myself in Sydney, so would ideally like the tour to end there. There are so many tour options out there for the budget conscious traveler and would love any advice from anyone who has been on/heard things about Adventure Tours Australia or Nomads World. I have been on Contiki in Europe, but they don't offer tours of South Australia and Victoria in January. I have been looking at the following 3 day tours to start:

Adventure Tours Australia: http://www.adventuretours.com.au/3-day-adelaide-to-melbourne-tour/
Nomads World: http://www.nomadsworld.com/productdetail.asp?backpack=melbourne+adventure+tours&grunt=s200r311

Thank you for any advice in advance!

Best,
Rebecca

Any particular reason for wanting to do an outback tour in January? It can reach temperatures of up to 50 Celsius- 122 Fahrenheit at that time of year, it is a very unpleasant place to be. That is why Contiki don't run tours at that time. I would advise doing your tours of the south of Australia, ie Victoria, Tasmania & New South Wales during our summer & the outback during autumn, winter or spring. Both the tours you are looking at seem good options & appear to follow exactly the same route from Adelaide to Melbourne & showcase the best of this regions natural beauty. You don't say what you like to experience in your travels?
Hope this helps & you have a great trip. Australia is a great country, but I am biased!!!!

hi, its way to hot to be considering the outback in Jan, so thats why there isnt very much on offer at that time.Can you change your itinerary at all?

Re: Tour Recommendations

Hi and thanks for your responses! Perhaps I misspoke when using "outback" in my post... I sense that outback is used fairly loosely to refer to any bush areas outside the main cities. Is there a particular region that is most commonly referred to as the outback?

I was planning to visit Adelaide and Melbourne over 9 days, and really wanted to do more of a wilderness type tour experience, which is why I said outback. I wanted to see if anyone knew whether the tours I mentioned are worth the cost, and if there are specific tours that you would suggest are worth doing. Since I will be traveling solo the idea of an organized tour is very appealing.

Thanks again everyone!

Really you would need to research the areas you want to go to,and then ask for help. Outback really refers to areas that are more off the beaten track in Oz.
Where ever you go in SA its going to be hot,unless you are staying around the coast. That would still be very warm however.

Travel Tips for Adelaide

Explore North Terrace in our city centre.

by adelaidean

North Tce holds so much of our history in one beautiful road.
Its one of Adelaides loviest city streets and it is exactly one mile long.It also is the home to some of our most treasured tourist attractions.
Adelaides oldest church, built in 1838, just after the arrival of the first settlers, is on this road.The church is called Anglican Holy Trinity Church.
Some of our most glamorous hotels are also located here. The Raddison Hotel and the Hyatt hotel are two of them. Right next door to the Hyatt, is our beautiful Railway Station and the Sky City casino.
Parliament House is set on the corner of North Tce and King William st. On the other corner is the grand architectural stucture which is Government House. A little further down is our War Memorial,that is truly worth a visit.
The state Library is a great place to spend a few hours, and right next to this is the Adelaide Museum and the Art Gallery. Adelaide University stands proudly just up the road..
At the end is our beautiful Botanical Gardens.
You could easily spend a day just exploring one wonderful road.

Hahndorf

by dlandt

My thanks to VT member an good friend Kate-Me for pointing this place out to me.

Just half an hour from Adelaide lies the small tourist town of Hahndorf. Apparently, at one time this area had been settled by German immigrants and they have played up that heritage. Along with the souvenier shops and pretty places, you will find German restaurants and delis, beer, and bakeries. Some of the sausage makers had tempting looking wares. A lot of the businesses here are completely Australian on the inside, but have a German exterior. If you've seen this kind of place before, Hahndorf won't hold too many surprises for you. You'll also know that these kind of theme towns universally offer good food without cracking your wallet wide open and invariablyhave quality handcrafts. If we hadn't been on the road, we would have spent more time here.

Smell the petrol!!!

by adelaidean

Clipsal 500 is one of the best supercar events ever!!!!
Its the V8 supercars and its an awesome street circuit.
Adelaide becomes alive when the V8s come to town.Its a fantastic time to visit.
next years race is held from 23-26th March and there are tickets ranging from general admission ($125.00) for a 4 day pass...to the best gold seats in the house. All prices are available on the website.
There is a concert held every night after the race..and anyone with any admission ticket is invited to attend...

Cleland Wildlife Park is situated in the Adelaide Hills only 20 minutes from Adelaide. Here you can interract with Australian animals in an environment that is made as natural as possible...You can see them feeding, feed the Kangaroos and emus..and just have a beautiful relaxing day out..
Cleland can be found at
mMount Lofty Summit Rd
Crafers...
Just follow the freeway out of Adelaide.

Governor Hindmarsh (The Gov)

by kelyeah about Governor Hindmarsh (The Gov)

Live-music fans should check out the line-up at 'The Gov' when heading into town. It features some legendary local and international acts. The odd Irish fiddle band sits around in the bar and a back venue hosts folk, jazz, blues, salsa, reggae and dance music.
And don't forget their legendery 'Tigharse Tuesday' shows. Whatever
