Intrepid Launches New Australia Itinerary  



Intrepid Travel’s new Australian itineraries will give travellers a real life experience of the locations and landscapes of Baz Luhrmann’s epic Australia.





With the economy in turmoil, there has never been a better time to take holidays in our own backyard. So, in line with the release of Baz Luhrmann’s epic movie Australia, Intrepid Travel has launched its new Australia – On Location itinerary that will give travellers a real life experience of the locations and landscapes of the film.


This itinerary was inspired by specific themes within the film such as adventure, outback and transformation with a view to giving travellers a life-changing experience.


From the Kimberley to Kakadu, this ten-day adventure blends Australian and Indigenous history with legend. 


Intrepid Trip Name: Australia – On Location
Trip Duration: 10 days (Broome to Darwin) available from April – October 2009.
Trip Cost: From AUD$3690 per person
Intrepid Trip Style: Independent
Trip Highlights



  • Visit the Derby ’Boab Prison Tree’ believed to be over 1500 years old

  • Bell Gorge in the West Kimberley with cascading waterfalls and crystal clear pools formed over millions of years

  • Visit El Questro and Home Valley, the sprawling properties used for mustering sequences

  • Visit Manning falls for a swim in deep clear pools amid a stunning natural landscape

  • Home Valley Station, the location of many of the scenes from the Australia movie and the setting of Faraway Downs

  • Relive scenes from the movie and experience optional activities such as horse riding, river cruising or scenic helicopter

  • Stop by Kununurra to visit its Celebrity Tree Park and stay in the same hotel where the cast and crew of the Australia movie stayed during the filming. Visit Darwin’s Wharf Precinct where many war scenes from the Australia movie were shot.

And the ingenious folks at Intrepid have come up with one more sweet Christmas deal: a 15 percent discount on overseas trips to anyone who has recently been made redundant! Apparently, the team had quite a few enquiries from customers who’d been laid-off and were looking to use their redundancy pay-out for a life-changing extended trip. AT loves the idea. There’s nothing like leaving everything behind and immersing yourself in an entirely different culture to clear out your head after a shock like losing your job!


So if you’re after a unique break, or if you’d like to step in to Hugh or Nicole’s shoes for ten days, visit www.intrepidtravel.com for more info.
