Travel Route: Alice Springs - Darwin

Alice Springs to Darwin is a great route if you want to see and experience the real outback. When you have hired a 4WD you can experience the real deal. Drive through mud puddles, enjoy the view and go to places other vehicles cannot. Once you arrive in Darwin you can always proceed with another route to see more of the beautiful country.
