Yet another road trip – and why are we not surprised? This one, known as the Explorer’s Way, follows in the footsteps of John McDouall Stuart, the first European to cross our vast continent in 1862. But his namesake, the Stuart Highway – which stretches from the SA border to Darwin – means we can now do it in comfort. On a sealed road. With air-con. And what a journey it is, taking in our outback icons: Uluru, Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, the Devil’s Marbles, Katherine and Nitmiluk National Park before ending in the tropical city of Darwin. This one’s on our bucket list.
