16-Day Great Victoria Desert and Nullarbor 4WD Expedition from Coober Pedy to Adelaide
The Great Victoria Desert is one of Australia’s hidden treasures - a vast sand dune and sand plain desert - the largest in Australia. Its area is shared equally by the States of South and Western Australia, north of the Nullarbor Plain and south of the Musgrave Ranges, and is bounded on the west by Laverton and the goldfields and to the east by Mabel Creek Station due west of Coober Pedy and the Stuart Highway.
This expedition travels across an extraordinary diversity of landscapes and vegetation, the scenery changing constantly. Both the Nullarbor and the Great Victoria Desert are veritable Botanic Gardens teeming with life. Departing Coober Pedy, (which is serviced daily by Rex Air from Adelaide) travel west on the famed Anne Beadell Highway through Aboriginal Land to Tallaringa Nature Reserve. Visit once top secret ground zero at Emu Field, the site of the first atomic tests on Australian soil. Cross the GVD along the Anne Beadell Highway to Laverton. From the goldfields return across the northern Nullarbor, crossing expansive and evocative sweeping plains. This program offers an astonishing diversity of landscapes and scenery.
