From Reef to Rock

Sponsored content: The Overlanders Way

Overlanders Way is a road trip that you’ll always remember. This journey will take you 1550km from the Pacific Ocean to the red dirt of the outback. Take the 4X4.
  1. Welcome yourself to the Northern Territory with a bite to eat or rest for the night at the “first and last pub” in the Northern Territory, Barkly Homestead. 
  2. Heading towards the Three Ways and Stuart Highway, turning left will take you to Tennant Creek. Learn about the Warumungu people at the Nyinkka Nyunyu Art Centre. 
  3. Experience the outback gold rush at Battery Hill Mining Centre. Tennant Creek provides the perfect choice between heading north to tropical Darwin or south to visit Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The choice is yours (or the driver’s!). 
  4. If you head north, make sure you stop in at Mataranka Hot Springs, and check out Nitmiluk National Park.
  5. If you head south, take your time to explore all the waterholes along the West MacDonnell Ranges.
