Outback Australia. It’s yours to explore, with Outback Spirit launching its 2024 season, and the announcement that Outback Spirit’s extensive portfolio of small-group outback touring adventures is now entirely all-inclusive for 2024. Each tour now includes scenic flights, entrance fees, lodging, transportation, gourmet dinners and all beverages — from a morning espresso to a gin aperitif. The 2024 season will also include an all-new tie-up between Arnhem Land and The Ghan, as well as the introduction of two new tours in South Australia and Western Australia.
Pairing the Arnhem Land Wilderness Adventure with the epic train journey that is The Ghan results in an experience that really does go beyond, diving deep into remote outback regions. Arnhem Land is the spiritual heart of Australia. Not only is it a place of remote and untouched natural beauty, but it’s home to the oldest surviving culture in human history. For keen travellers who want to connect to Country, Arnhem Land offers the most culturally significant authentic experience.
There’s a great responsibility that comes with exploring Arnhem Land and Outback Spirit has worked closely with the Traditional Owners to develop a network of camps, lodges and travel routes exclusive to Outback Spirit. The unparalleled Arnhem Land Wilderness Adventure and The Ghan journey together showcase the most remote, spectacular, and spiritual places in outback Australia.
“We’re excited to pair two experiences that are unique to Australia for the 2024 season,” says Luke Walker, Executive General Manager of Outback Spirit. “Outback Spirit’s ethos is to connect our guests with Australia and 2024 is set to be a fantastic season, with additional touring on offer and upgraded infrastructure. We look forward to sharing new places with our guests, offering immersive experiences that inspire a new perspective of this wonderful country.”
There is something to discover wherever you may roam in Australia, and Outback Spirit’s two new tours do just that. Kangaroo Island & SA Coastal Adventure and Gems of the Southwest showcase the picturesque landscapes of South Australia and Western Australia respectively. Both tours are available to book now for travel in 2024.

Along with the new tours for the now-open 2024 season, Outback Spirit is looking forward to welcoming guests to Ngauwudu Safari Camp, the most luxurious accommodation on the Mitchell Plateau. This camp, owned and operated by Outback Spirit, underwent a recent multi-million-dollar upgrade and expansion, with eight new Safari Suites built and beautifully outfitted, adding to the 14 existing Suites, which were enhanced with new furniture, fittings, and bed linen. The Wawida Pavilion, home to Ngauwudu Safari Camp’s restaurant and bar, has also been transformed, with updated dining facilities, a cosy lounge, and an extended alfresco area, perfect for sundowner or sun-up socialisation. Ngauwudu Safari Camp is also an eco-friendly facility, with the design including a class-leading effluent treatment plant and an advanced hybrid solar power system.
