Group Size
Limited to 12 Travelers with Two Expedition Leaders
A very important feature of our northern Australia expedition is the limited group size, as nature travel is most meaningful when experienced in the company of fewer travelers, and our environmental footprint is lighter.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
  • Trip price includes: Accommodations, services of Nat Hab's professional Expedition Leaders, local guides and lodge staff, all meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, some alcoholic beverages, most gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, all activities and entrance fees, all taxes, permits and service fees.
  • Internal air fee includes: Flights from Brisbane to Heron Island, Heron Island to Cairns, Cairns to Darwin and onward to our safari camp in Kakadu, and from our Kakadu camp back to Darwin, plus airline baggage fees and any additional taxes and fees on these flights.
Not Included
Travel to and from the start and end point of your trip, some (most) alcoholic beverages, gratuities for Expedition Leaders, passport and visa fees (if any), optional activities (including diving), items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry and internet, etc.), international airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes (if any), required medical evacuation insurance, optional travel protection insurance.
Physical Requirements
Easy / Moderate
This adventure does not require a particularly high degree of physical fitness, however, walks can range from 1 to 4 miles in fluctuating climates and environments. Although these walks are easy to moderate in terms of physical exertion, they can include terrain that is sometimes steep, uneven or slippery. There may be multiple early morning and/or night walks of approximately 1 to 2 miles, often in dim light. Travelers should be able to walk unassisted for 2 miles over sometimes rough terrain and inclines. During our time on the Great Barrier Reef, our primary activity is snorkeling, with the option to scuba dive at an additional cost. For snorkeling, a reasonable level of fitness and comfort in the water is required.

Having two Expedition Leaders guiding this trip is of vital importance so we are able, at times, to divide our groups according to varying physical abilities. This advantage ensures that our guests can move at the pace, and travel the distance, that suits their preference. Note that all activities are optional, and travelers should only participate in activities in which they feel comfortable. While travelers are not required to participate in all activities, should you opt out of a scheduled activity, we cannot always guarantee alternatives will be available. Travelers who would like to take longer or more strenuous hikes may have limited opportunities to do so at their leisure. Internal flights include large commercial planes and smaller aircraft. On the smaller aircraft, cabins are small and not pressurized, so travelers must be in suitable health for these conditions.
Important Information About This Trip
Australia is a place unto itself, a remote and isolated continent filled with wildlife and landscapes that are truly unique. You could even call them weird. On the other hand, Australia is an English-speaking country, which, aside from some left-hand driving and happy accents, feels pretty familiar to life in North America. This is a new Nat Hab adventure, and itinerary changes may occur in order enhance and improve the experience, or to take advantage of changing conditions. Our journey is designed to explore parts of Australia’s northern Outback that are least populated, most wild, and densest in wildlife and rugged beauty. These are the places that are most difficult to get to and experience fully on your own, where the expertise and guidance of our knowledgeable Expedition Leaders will be most appreciated. Steering away from the crowds, we explore during quiet hours that allow for secluded and intimate encounters with nature. Many people visit Australia, but only an intrepid few Nat Hab travelers will experience Australia in such an unusual way. You could even call them weird, too. And of that, they should be proud.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
This trip begins in Brisbane, Queensland and ends in Sydney, New South Wales. We recommend that you arrive in Brisbane by 4 pm on Day 1 in order to join the group for our welcome dinner and orientation. You may depart Sydney at any time on the final day, as travelers will be accommodated in Sydney on the final night to allow you to catch early morning flights.

We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find better fares online.
