This ride has been regularly rated by our cyclists as their favourite of all the rides that they have done with us. This is the third time that we have repeated the journey (2009, 2012) and this time we have added in Kakadu, improving what was already an amazing tour! Needless to say, we are really looking forward to it!

On Stage One from Darwin to Katherine you will cycle through some of the most iconic and beautiful Australian scenery including the outstanding Kakadu NP. There are numerous national parks full of gorges, waterfalls, lookouts and swimming holes for you to explore and we have planned our days to give you an opportunity to enjoy plenty of them.

After Katherine you’ll head west on Stage Two crossing the western NT before reaching Kununurra, situated just over the border into WA. This section will show off spectacular escarpments, along with deep greenery and vegetation which contrasts vividly with the vibrant oranges and browns of the landscape.

Crossing the border into WA begins Stage Three of the tour and also marks the start of the Kimberley Region. Covering nearly 423,000 square kilometres, this ancient region has fewer people per square kilometre than almost any other place on Earth. The experiences here will capture your imagination as you are immersed in vast wildlife sanctuaries, spectacular gorges and thundering waterfalls.

It’s an opportunity to have so many of those outback Australian experiences that you have always wanted to do, and AllTrails organise it all for you.
