1.FEB: ARRIVAL DAY IN SYDNEY

Today I will pick you up at the airport and check you into your hostel. There are no planned activities today, but we will all meet up in the evening to get to know each other and the plan for the next weeks over some drinks.

Accommodation: We will spend the night in a hostel, possibly around Bondi Beach. Expect to pay around 15-20EUR for a dorm bed.

 

2.FEB: FREE DAY IN SYDNEY

We will have a free day to explore Sydney city. You can opt to climb Sydney Harbour Bridge or join me walking or biking around "the Rocks" historic area and the Sydney Opera House or if you are hung over or need time to overcome jetlag you could just chill at Bondi Beach. 

Accommodation: We will spend the night in a hostel, possibly around Bondi Beach. Expect to pay around 15-20EUR for a dorm bed.

3.FEB: SYDNEY TO CANBERRA (300km/3,5hrs)

After a relaxed morning we will have our first drive which will go to Canberra, the Capital of Australia. Here we will have some time to walk around (see the glassworks, parliament building etc) and afterwards we will meet up for our first kitty (with kitty I mean communal food) shopping. After that we will drive off to camp at our first resting site on our way to Melbourne.

Accommodation: We will find a free road camp where we will pitch our tents and if possible make a bonfire. My guess is that most people will be tired after the previous night out in Sydney so that people can chose to have an early evening if they want.

4.FEB: CANBERRA TO LAKES ENTRANCE (400km/ 5hrs)

When you wake up you will most likely find me preparing breakfast with coffee. Once we are packed we will get on the road for a long drive down South before we stop at a coastal town called "Lakes Entrance". Here we can visit the Wyanga Park Winery for a free sampling and a 12-30AUD meal or continue to the Whaterwheel Beach Tavern for a fish and chips. We can also do a 20 minute walk up to the Jemmy's Point Lookout before continuing on to find a place to camp for the night.

Once we are packed we will start our drive to Melbourne. We will check into a hostel once we are there and get ready to explore the town at night and possibly do a communal dinner at the hostel.

Accommodation: We will find a free place to camp between Lakes Entrance and Melbourne. At the road side camps you can't expect much more than a pit toilet and a source for drinking water, but if the group prefers we can also continue to Melbourne to stay inside a hostel.

5.FEB: LAKES ENTRANCE TO MELBOURNE (300km/ 4hrs)

We will arrive early and have a free day in Melbourne after checking into our hostel. Here you can walk around, drink what's known as the World's best coffee or shop 'till you drop if you want. We will have the car to drive around so that you can see the penguin colony at the beach in St.Kilda and get a taste of what downtown Melbourne is like on the same day.

Accommodation: We will find a hostel either in the city center or in the popular suburb St.Kilda around six kilometers from the center. Expect to pay around 12-16EUR for a dorm bed.

6.FEB: FREE DAY IN MELBOURNE 

Melbourne is possibly the coolest city in all of Australia so I am sure you will appreciate the extra day here. There are lots of things to do and we can use the car to get around to see lots of the things there are to see.

Accommodation: We will find a hostel either in the city center or in the popular suburb St.Kilda around six kilometers from the center. Expect to pay around 12-16EUR for a dorm bed.

7.FEB: MELBOURNE TO 100KM FROM ADELAIDE (650km/ 7hrs)

After a late checkout we will have a driving day towards Adelaide where there will be plenty of places to stop along the way including the Torquay's surfing museum, Erskine Falls, Lock Ard Gorge, Cape Bridgewater, The Blue Lake, Umpherson Sink Hole, Piccaninnie Ponds and the Pool of Siloam. 

Accommodation: Most likely we will not make it all the way to Adelaide, so this night we will probably find a free roadside campsite to stay at as well. If we manage to get to Adelaide we could find a cheap hostel for around 15EUR.

8.FEB: 100KM FROM ADELAIDE TO ADELAIDE (100km/ 1,5hrs)

We will arrive Adelaide in the morning and find ourselves a hostel to stay at. You can have the day to rest or explore the regional capital city known for it's central market and the Mount Lofty trails which we can drive out (15km) to.

9.FEB: FREE DAY IN ADELAIDE

You have the whole day to explore and get ready for the next days on the road towards the red center of Australia. We will do some kitty shopping and can cook comunal lunch and dinner at the hostel for the ones who want that.

10.FEB: ADELAIDE TO MT.REMARKABLE (350km/4hrs)

After a relaxed morning we will drive to Clare Valley wine region if we want to stop for some free wine tasting before we continue to Mt.Remarkable National Park. We will pitch our tents and prepare a bonfire in the evening after exploring the national park.

After spending the morning exploring the national park we will drive up to Port Augusta (60km/1hr) where we can have lunch and do some kitty shopping for the next days in the outback. Afterwards we will continue to the Ikara Flinders Ranges.

Accommodation: As we will be staying in a national park we will have to expect to pay something (probably less than 10AUD) for the camping. The good thing about this though is that it usually comes with facilities.

Today we will drive to the Wilpena Pound and look for the natural amphitheater sacred to the Aboriginal Adnyamanthana People. 

Accommodation: As we will be staying in a national park we will have to expect to pay something (probably less than 10AUD) for the camping. The good thing about this though is that it usually comes with facilities.

13.FEB: IKARA FLINDERS RANGES TO GLENDAMBO (500km/6hrs)

When we have packed up our tents we will travel to Glendambo with a stop at Lake Hart Salt Lake. Don't worry, you will have plenty of time to take the perfectly staged picture from these white salt pans where it can be fun to play with vision depth (have people looking like they come out of a pringles box or similar).

Accommodation: We will most likely find a free roadside camping place to stay at for the night.


14.FEB: GLENDAMBO TO COOBER PEDY (250km/3hrs)

Today we will have a relatively short drive to the city of Coober Pedy famous as the World's opal mining capital. We will escape the heat by exploring what there is to see underground.

Accommodation: Tonight will be a night you will probably not forget, where you will be staying at an underground hostel. The Radeka Backpackers for example is a bit pricy at almost 50EUR per night, but gets good reviews.

15.FEB: COOBER PEDY INTO THE OUTBACK (600km/7hrs)

This is where our real outback adventure begins. We will have a late start and drive into the bush for camping and watching stars around a bonfire.

Accommodation: Tonight we will really be bush camping. We might find a roadside camping, but otherwise it could be a night without facilities. The good thing though is that you will see stars which might be brighter than you have ever seen before.
