Renee Wright samples the Australian outback on a Desert Explorer outback tour which starts in Perth and finishes up in Alice Springs six days later. About as remote as tourists can get in Australia, the Desert Explorer four wheel drive trip takes passengers to the heart of outback Australia. The tour goes from vast golden wheat plains and mines to the Red Centre, Ayers Rock (Uluru), Kings Canyon and Alice Springs. Renee said she was initially a little apprehensive about the Desert Explorer trip as it involved bush camping each night. “I’m not really a roughing it kind of girl and some aspects of the trip were quite tough for me, but the scenery absolutely made up for it. It was just breath-taking.” The programme also features New York; the Greek island Rhodes; bungy-jumping in Queenstown; Lord Howe Island in Australia and Vanuatu.
