    Day 1

    Adelaide/Flinders Ranges

    After guests have been picked up from the specified departure location in Adelaide, this tour will commence. We will leave behind the city and head for the hillside vineyards of the Clare Valley and a string of classic country towns. After lunch, we will be able to enjoy the expansive views of the Flinders Range as we weave our way towards Wilpena Pound, one of Australia's most magnificent natural features. We will have the option to hike this stunning area. Tonight, we will camp among the Flinders Ranges.

At this point, we will be following the historic route of the old Ghan Railway and the Overland Telegraph line. Before we get off the beaten path, we will stop in Marree for some lunch beside an old railway station. We will now be on the renowned Oodnadatta track as we pass by Lake Eyre, Australia's largest salt lake.

Our first stop of the day will be at Lake Cadibarrawirracanna. Then, we will continue on our way to Coober Pedy, the "Opal Capital of the World." We will take a tour of the town and get to see an underground house, as well as see an opal-cutting demonstration in a local mine. We will then have the afternoon free to explore at our own leisure.

We will pass the Dingo Fence, the longest fence in the world, and take in the view of the Breakaways Scenic Reserve, made famous by the classic film, Mad Max III: Beyond Thunderdome. In the early afternoon, we will arrive in Erldunda, which is the closest settlement to the geographical center of Australia, where we can take a swim in the pool or enjoy some relaxation time at our campsite for the night.

    • Cancellation by the traveler: If you cancel a trip after making a booking you will lose some or all of the money you have paid for the trip. A cancellation will only be effective when we receive written confirmation of the cancellation. If you cancel a trip:
      • 60 days or more prior to departure, we will charge $250;
      • between 30 and 59 days prior to departure, we will retain the deposit or 50% of the total booking cost; whichever is greater, and
      • less than 30 days prior to departure, we will retain 100% paid by you in connection with the booking.

        Different fees may apply to airline tickets depending on the carrier being used. You are strongly advised to take out cancellation insurance at the time of booking which will cover cancellation penalties in certain circumstances. If you leave a trip for any reason after it has commenced we are not obliged to make any refunds for unused services.

      • Cancellation Policy: We may cancel a trip at any time up to 60 days before departure, subject to clause 15. We may cancel a trip at any time prior to departure if, due to terrorism, natural disasters, political instability or other external events it is not viable for us to operate the planned itinerary. If we cancel a trip you may choose between us applying the amounts paid toward an alternative trip or receiving a full refund. We are not responsible for any incidental expenses that you may have incurred as a result of your booking such as visas, vaccinations or non-refundable flights.
      • Booking amendments: If you wish to transfer from one trip to another or transfer your booking to a third party you must notify us at least 60 days prior to the proposed departure date. A fee of AUD$125 per person per change will apply (in addition to any charges levied by hotels, ground operators or airlines). If you notify us less than 60 days prior to the proposed departure date the refund policy applicable to cancellations will apply. Transfers to a third party are only permitted where the transferee meets all the requirements in relation to the trip, and transfers to another departure can only be made to a departure within the current validity period.

This fee is in addition to any charges levied by hotels, ground operators or airlines. No amendments are permitted to your booking within 10 days of departure.
      • Prices & surcharges: Our trip prices are based on currency exchange rates. We reserve the right to impose surcharges up to 60 days before departure due to unfavorable changes in exchange rates, increases in airfares or other transportation costs, increases in local operator costs, taxes, or if government action should require us to do so. In such instances we will be responsible for the first 2% of the additional costs and you will be responsible for the balance. If any surcharge results in an increase of more than 10% of the trip price you may cancel the booking within 14 days of notification of the surcharge and obtain a full refund. We will not surcharge any booking for travel within the validity of this brochure once paid in full.
      • Age:
        • Minimum: General Policy: For the majority of our trips the minimum age for children is 12. All travelers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for the child's day to day care. Please note we cannot guarantee triple or joining rooms for families; accompanying adults may be required to share with others in the group on a twin share basis. Variations: A minimum age of 18 applies to many of our Overland Adventures, while a minimum age of 5 applies to our Family trips.
        • Maximum: General Policy: For the majority of our trips we have no upper age limit though we remind you that our trips can be physically demanding and a Self-Assessment form is required for all passengers 70 years and over. Variations: On many our Overland Adventures a maximum age of 70 applies. Please refer to the "your fellow travelers" section of the relevant Trip Notes to check if any specific age variations apply.
      • Small groups & combination trips: Our trips are guaranteed to depart once they have one fully paid traveler (unless minimum group size specifically states otherwise); this means at times we can have very small groups. Many of our trips are designed to fit with other departures to create a longer "combination" trip; this means that some of your group may have already been travelling together for some weeks when you commence your trip. If you would like to know how many people are booked on your trip or any combination trip it is part of please ask prior to making your booking.
      • Passport and visas: You must carry a valid passport and have obtained all of the appropriate visas, permits and certificates for the countries in which you will visit during your trip. Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the duration of the trip. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in possession of the correct visas, permits and certificates for your trip; please refer to the Trip Notes for details. We are not responsible if you are refused entry to a country because you lack the correct passport, visa or other travel documentation.
      • Travel insurance: Travel insurance is compulsory for all travelers and should be taken out at the time of booking. At a minimum your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum coverage of US$200,000. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. You must provide proof of your travel insurance on the first day of your trip; you will not be able to join the trip without it. If you obtain travel insurance through us you acknowledge that you are satisfied with the level of insurance we have arranged.
      • Flexibility: You appreciate and acknowledge that the nature of this type of travel requires considerable flexibility and you should allow for alternatives. The itinerary provided for each trip is representative of the types of activities contemplated, but it is understood that the route, schedules, itineraries, amenities and mode of transport may be subject to alteration without prior notice due to local circumstances or events.
        • Change of itinerary: While we endeavor to operate all trips as described we reserve the right to change the trip itinerary. Please refer to our website before departure for the most recent updates to your itinerary.
          • Before departure: If we make a major change we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before departure. The definition of a major change is deemed to be a change affecting at least one day in five of the itinerary. When a major change is made you may choose between accepting the change, obtaining a refund of money paid on the land portion of the trip only or accepting an alternative tour offered.
          • After departure: We reserve the right to change an itinerary after departure due to local circumstances or events outside of our control. In such emergency circumstances the additional cost of any necessary itinerary alterations will be covered by you: please refer to the Trip Notes for your trip for details of Emergency Funds which you agree to carry, to be used in such instances. Please note we are not responsible for any incidental expenses that may be incurred as a result of the change of itinerary such as visas, vaccinations or non-refundable flights.
        • Authority on Tour: The decision of the group leader is final on all matters likely to affect the safety or well-being of any person participating in the trip. If you fail to comply with a decision made by a group leader, or interfere with the well-being of the group, the group leader may order you to leave the trip immediately, with no right of refund. You must at all times comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange and drug regulations of all countries visited, and you also agree to travel in accordance with our responsible travel guidelines.
        • Acceptance of Risk: You acknowledge that the nature of the trip is adventurous and participation involves a degree of personal risk. You will be visiting places where the political, cultural and geographical attributes present dangers and physical challenges greater than those present in our daily lives. We use information from government foreign departments and reports from our own contacts in assessing whether the itinerary should operate. However it is also your own responsibility to acquaint yourself with all possible relevant travel information and the nature of your itinerary. You acknowledges that your decision to travel is made in light of consideration of this information and you accept that you assume the personal risks attendant upon such travel.
        • Limitation of Liability: We contract with a network of companies, government agencies and individuals to assist in the running of our trips as agent for these third parties. We are not responsible for the acts and omissions of these third parties. To the fullest extent permitted by law:
          • any liability for any loss, death, injury or damage which you may suffer (directly or indirectly) in connection with or arising out of your participation in a trip, or any breach of the Booking Conditions, is excluded;
          • you release us and our officers, employees, agents and representatives from any liability and expressly waive any claims you may have against us arising out of or in connection with your participation in a trip; and
          • any condition or warranty which would otherwise be implied by law into these Booking Conditions (Implied Warranty), is excluded.
          To the extent an Implied Warranty cannot be excluded, our liability in respect of the Implied Warranty is limited to (in our absolute discretion): (i) the provision of a similar trip to an equivalent value; or (ii) a refund of the total amount received by us from you in connection with your booking. Any claim by you is excluded to the extent that it is for indirect or consequential loss, loss of profits or economic loss, however it arises, or for indirect, special, punitive or exemplary damages.
        • Optional Activities: Optional activities not included in the trip price do not form part of the trip or this contract. You accept that any assistance given by your tour leader or local representative in arranging optional activities does not render us liable for them.
        • Errors and Omissions: Although we have made a concerted attempt to verify the accuracy of statements made in our trip documentation including brochure, website and Trip Notes we cannot be held responsible for any error, omission or unintentional misrepresentation that may occur.
        • Claims and Complaints: If you have a complaint about your trip please inform your tour leader or our local representative at the time in order that the they can attempt to rectify the matter. If satisfaction is not reached through these means then any further complaint should be put in writing to us within 30 days of the end of the tour.
        • Severability: In the event that any term or condition contained in these Booking Conditions is unenforceable or void by operation of law or as being against public policy or for any other reason then such term or condition shall be deemed to be severed from this contract or amended accordingly only to such extent necessary to allow all remaining terms and conditions to survive and continue as binding.
