Experience NT with Outback Spirit: ‘Different in Every Sense’

You know how some tours are all about the sights you see? And others are about the flavours you taste? And the occasional destination is even focused on touch (Blarney Stone, anyone?). Well, a trip to the Northern Territory with Outback Spirit is different in every sense. So different that you’ll get unlimited happy vibes as you travel! Curious how? Read on!

You know how some tours are all about the sights you see? And others are about the flavours you taste? And the occasional destination is even focused on touch (Blarney Stone, anyone?). Well, a trip to the Northern Territory with Outback Spirit is different in every sense. So different that you’ll get unlimited happy vibes as you travel! Curious how? Read on!

Did you know you get a dopamine release when your senses are stimulated, flooding your body with good feels? It’s why cake lovers go back for one more slice, and festival lovers feel euphoric when their fave band comes on.

Well, as a travel lover, there’s a wanderlust gene (DRD4-7R, to be precise) that releases dopamine when you are going to new places (especially entirely different ones)! And 20% of the world has it, which for reals means we do at Karryon, and you do, too.

We reveal how you can get a travel buzz when you journey with Journey Beyond’s Outback Spirit on their Northern Territory tours.

When you travel somewhere where ‘different’ is the point of difference, you want to do it with someone that gets it. Outback Spirit may not have known about that wanderlust gene, but they’ve activated plenty of them across their 20+ years travelling Australia and into the Northern Territory. They’ve naturally been seeking to provide it anyway!

Outback Spirit does this by creating fully-inclusive tours that offer something new to see. Plus, they travel in small groups that ensure a level of intimacy that enhances your experience.

They also have tapped into the fact that we get a host of happy hormones released (dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin) when we feel a strong sense of connection. So, when you’re listening to stories from the Indigenous communities across the territory and feeling connected to the land (thanks to the guides’ brilliant commentary), you’re awash with good vibes!

Did you know that shopping also releases dopamine? Yes, it’s actually GOOD FOR YOU that you can snap up a last-minute place for Outback Spirit’s 2022 tours or lock-in early your 2023 holiday dates early. Woohoo.

If you feel happy vibes when you are outdoors and when you see something new, can you imagine what it feels like to be standing at the base of Uluru or looking across at the rocky gorges and desert plains across the Red Centre? Like, wow. No wonder so many people feel the pull to return!

Outback Spirit’s wow-worthy Red Centre Field of Light Spectacular sets off all your senses. With incredible natural sights to behold and connections to culture that enrich the soul, the feels are real. Also, your sound receptors are stimulated at the spectacular Field of Light display.

We haven’t forgotten taste, smell, and touch. Allow your tastebuds and sense of smell to go into happy overdrive at the Sounds of Silence dinner. And the comfort of two nights at the 5-star Sails in the Desert hotel does wonders for your sense of touch (luxe bedding FTW!!)

After six incredible days, you’ll be deliriously happy!

Arnhem Land Wilderness Adventure 2023

Experience Arnhem Land’s ancient rock art, gain wisdom and spiritual stories from local guides

Outback Spirit goes one deeper on stimulating that DRD4-7R gene when you travel with them through Arnhem Land. Not only because they’ve been travelling there for years, but because they have deeper access, too. Outback Spirit is the only tour company that has permission to travel to the sacred heart of Arnhem Land. That’s about as wanderlust-y as we can imagine!

In the northeast of the Northern Territory, Arnhem Land has been home to the Aboriginal Yolgnu People for more than 60,000 years. A journey across this vast and mysterious land connects you to ancient rock art, unusual landscapes, and flora and fauna rarely seen outside the region. It’s intoxicating to stand in front of the 10,000-year-old Maliwawa rock shelter painting.

Alongside Arnhem Land’s incredible sites and pristine landscape, your Indigenous guides share ancient wisdom, ancestral tales, and spiritual stories, enriching your time in Arnhem Land.
