Description

After stocking up and making sure we have plenty of Fosters in the 'eskie' (cooler) we'll head off on the Stuart Highway and into the Outback, a vast tract of 'scrublands, red desert sands, and galloping roadside Emus.' 300 km down the road our first rest day will be in the town of Katherine from where riders can visit the picturesque sandstone gorges at Nitmiluk National Park or the Cutta Cutta Caves.

Continuing south we'll encounter the fascinating ghost town of Newcastle Waters before arriving in Tennant Creek, which services the region's remote cattle stations and aboriginal communities. Further on we'll pass by piles of gigantic boulders known as the Devil's Marbles and camp at roadhouses en route to Alice Springs, known to locals simply as 'Alice.' Here, a triple rest day marks the end of this section and will give our intrepid cyclists plenty of time for the 450 km side trip by bus or by plane to astonishing Uluru (Ayers Rock).
