  • Difficulty Level
    Level 1
    X

    Level 1: Occasional

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.

    Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.

    Level 2: Recreational

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.

    Walking – 8-12 km (5-7 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.

    Level 3: Enthusiast

    Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.

    Level 4: Avid

    Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.

    Level 5: Expert

    Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.

    Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.

Discover the Top End by air safari

Welcome to a journey like none you’ve ever done before—and one best discovered with a small group of your closest mates. Over 16 incredible days, you’ll explore the vastness of our sunburnt country and the best of the remote Australian outback on this private air journey. Setting off from Darwin, you’ll come to know the Northern Territory intimately soaring its skies via private plane, and the odd helicopter, and moving by foot and 4WD through its diverse landscapes. Along the way you’ll bed down in a range of properties some of which demand an adventurous spirit (your award-winning rustic coastal camp is only accessible by air or sea), but all of which have been carefully chosen to give you a true feel for the remote region you’ve entered.

Activity Level What’s Included Gear Extend Your Trip

Most important is that you feel agile enough to get in and out of planes, helicopters and boats. You'll hike through rough terrain at times, but most days offer a combination of casual exercise and outdoor activity.

What’s included? Everything you need. Plus everything you’d
want. Plus a few things you never knew you wanted ‘til you got them.

In a word: everything. In ninety words? Signature B&R guides; local experts; unique, unforgettable biking and walking routes; private tours; authentic local cuisine; lessons and demonstrations; local artisanal wines; wine tastings; all victuals and libations; all the endorphins you can handle; new insight; interesting, fun and like-minded travel companions; a feeling of total freedom. In short: an extraordinary, hassle-free journey of discovery.

Walking Poles & Waist Pack

Call us to create an independent travel experience that fits your needs—we can also arrange for a local guide.

Spend more time in Australia

Australia is a huge continent, and there is plenty to see! Starting and ending your journey in Sydney, Melbourne or both is a great way to see more of the country and experience these beautiful, and very different cities. If you have more time, add on a few days relaxing in the Great Barrier Reef, or head to the Red Centre for some true Outback experiences in Uluru or The Centre. For some really unique experiences, head to the tropical Top End for wildlife, Aboriginal culture and remote Outback life, or explore the splendours of Kangaroo Island.
