WHAT TO EXPECT

This Outback tour shows you the best of Central Australia – a Red Centre travel experience you’ll never forget.

Day 1 - Alice Springs to Ayers Rock (Lunch / Dinner)
After picking you up from your accommodation in Alice Springs bright and early, we hit the road on our adventure of a lifetime. (For those commencing the tour at Uluru we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or meet you from your flight at the airport).

Our journey begins heading south to Erldunda travelling through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at the Camel Farm for refreshments and a Camel ride if you're keen (own expense).

We also stop at Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal artefacts.

On the way to Uluru, we stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of our trip.

After a stop for lunch and our arrival at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, we travel to the base of Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, hearing of the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa).

Continuing on, we meet our local Aboriginal guide who will provide a once in a lifetime authentic Indigenous cultural experience with an interpretive walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole where you will hear the stories of the unique landscapes, art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people. This experience is followed by a hands-on dot painting session where you will take your artwork as a memento of your experience.

We conclude at the Cultural Centre, where you may explore the displays and learn of the flora and fauna of this unique area.

Later, experience the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset, complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It's a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert.

Afterwards, settle in at our remote private camp, complete with our signature Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.

Day 2 - Ayers Rock to Kings Creek Station (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)
Rising early, take a short walk to a lookout close to our campsite to view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta without the hustle and bustle of the public viewing areas.

Afterwards, head off to Kata Tjuta for a walk through the "Valley of the Winds".

Next, we're off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for our second nights' private bush camp, complete with bush toilet and shower. With nobody else for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback.

Dinner around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingoes howling in the distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.

Day 3 - Kings Creek Station to Alice Springs (Breakfast / Lunch)
Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. We'll visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil ‘Garden of Eden’.

Later, we make our way back to Alice Springs travelling on a typical outback dirt road. We'll drop you back at your accommodation early evening and usually all meet later for a bit of a night on the town (Alice seems like the big smoke after 3 days in the bush).

This is an open age tour. You can choose either to stay in a permanent tent with bed & mattress or swag under the stars

What to bring: Torch, wide brimmed hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, water bottle (1.5 litres), walking shoes/boots, sleeping bag (if you prefer to use your own), toiletries, swim wear, towel, camera, comfortable and casual clothing for 3 days.

You will definitely require a Sleeping Bag rated to -5C during our winter season. In summer it is advisable as not all nights are warm. 

In the warmer months, there are quite a lot of flies around in Central Australia. A lot of people find these to be quite annoying. It is advisable that you bring along a fly net so these little guys don't drive you crazy! 

 

Most of our campsite kitchens are fitted with a power board that the group can share to charge electronics, however due to the remote areas we travel in we cannot guarantee electricity and recommend bringing a power bank.

In summer shorts and a shirt is all that is really needed. We would also recommend light weight long sleeve shirts and long (zip off) pants. Our temperatures can be excessive and this can impact fair-skinned people. A jumper/pullover is recommended for the early morning if it happens to get a bit chilly. Swimwear is recommended as there will be swimming opportunities - don't forget a towel! Also bring a broad-brimmed hat (not a baseball cap), sunglasses and sunscreen.

Our winter days are generally mild and most of the time you can still wear shorts and a shirt during the day. However, the nights and early mornings can be very cold. You will need to bring warm clothes - long pants, a good jumper, windbreaker, a beanie, scarf, gloves and good woolen socks are recommended.

Regardless of the time of year that you are travelling you will need to bring a hat, preferably wide-brimmed. 

Sunscreen, torch (preferably hands free head light), camera (plus spare fully charged batteries), mosquito repellent (summer), towel, toiletries, any medication required, water bottle (1.5 litre is best). Fresh water supplies for refilling bottles will be available throughout the tour. If you have walking/trekking poles/sticks these can also be handy in some of the undulating terrain.

 

No. All you need to bring is a water bottle. We recommend a minimum 1.5 litre bottle. We will be carrying large containers of chilled water that you can fill at the commencement and conclusion of all walks. Most walks have water replenishing facilities. For those warmer locations and walks (Kakadu/Central Australia) we recommend that an additional 1 litre of water is carried, particularly during our warmer months.

Our tours are active adventures that include a fair amount of walking, hiking and water based activities. Walks can extend to 4 hours duration in warm to hot conditions, so a reasonable level of fitness is required, We don't expressly set any age restrictions. Our tours are a mix of true outback adventure camping to soft camping. Less demanding treks/walks are available at most locations for those less active. Regardless, good health is important but ultimately, it is an open and positive attitude that matters. It is very important that any pre-existing medical conditions are discussed with our staff at time of booking.

Our menu is designed to cater for both carnivores and vegetarians. Specific diet requests may be difficult to comply with in some remote areas. You may be requested to supply some product If it can not be procured at a particular touring location. You must inform us at the time of tour booking if you have any special dietary requirements.

Much of the area we travel is controlled by the NT Government Dry Zone Policy. This policy was introduced with a joint request from The Traditional Owners (Aboriginal communities), Federal and Territory Governments. While a wine or beer over dinner at our campsites is permitted, there are other restrictions as to where, when and what type of alcohol can be purchased or consumed. It is important to consult with our office, your guide or your accommodation supplier at booking.

Our tours will continue despite rain as long as it is safe to do so, however, we are dictated by Parks authorities and occasionally they will need to close various locations included in our itineraries. If this is the case, a suitable alternative will be offered if possible.
