This self drive campervan tour from Darwin to Adelaide begins and ends in a city, but what lies between is iconic Australian outback including Uluru, the Olgas, Devils Marbles, the underground town of Coober Pedy, Alice Springs, the MacDonnell Ranges, Mataranka hot springs, and the Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks.

If you are adding the Darwin to Adelaide road trip onto the Cairns to Darwin road trip, you will have covered some of the attractions already and will be able to make this journey in 9 days instead of 14 or 15.

All highlights, good caravan parks, free camping, rest areas and public toilets are mapped at the bottom of the article. If this itinerary is heading in the wrong direction for you, keep scrolling.
