Why do we love this

Alice Springs to Uluru and back again, this tour takes you past all of the iconic desert sights and cultural areas. These guys have a history of promoting and sharing Aboriginal culture and we think that's pretty cool! You'll get plenty of chances throughout your journey to learn about Indigenous life and history that's what makes this trip extra special.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Get ready to explore Australia's Red Centre! This 3-day, 2-night camping tour will have you hitting all the cultural highlights and hidden desert spots, so buckle up! You'll discover iconic Uluru, be wowed by striking Kata Tjuta and fall in love with breath-taking Kings Canyon. 

Itinerary:

Day 1 - Alice Springs to Ayers Rock
You can start from either Uluru itself or Alice Springs - it's an early rise if you choose the latter! Head off at 4:45 am to get to The Rock where you'll meet your fellow travellers.

Zoom down dusty red roads and past towering ranges as you make your way toward Uluru.

On the way visit a camel farm and take a ride on these ships of the desert.

You'll reach Uluru in the afternoon, just in time to embark on a base walk! This is a great chance to check out all the cultural areas and learn about the history of this wonder. You can also pay a visit to the Cultural Centre to learn more about Indigenous culture.

Come evening, it's time to watch Uluru change colour at sunset. After a delicious dinner, some stories around the campfire and a spot of stargazing, it’s time to snuggle into your swag at the private campsite. 

Fall asleep under the stars, ready for another adventure tomorrow. 


Day 2 - Ayers Rock to Kata Tjuta
Wake early to watch the mesmerising sunrise over Uluru and see life in the desert begin. Admire the changing colours of The Rock and enjoy a relaxing start to the day. 

Afterwards, head to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) for a day of hiking and exploring. Wander through the Valley of the Winds and wend your way through creek beds, rocky domes and stunning desert wilderness. Immerse yourself in the Indigenous history of the area and enjoy exploring this historic place. 

After working up an appetite, enjoy a tasty lunch before waving goodbye to Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park.

It's sad to leave this beauty behind, but another adventure awaits!

Your next destination is Kings Creek Station where you'll enjoy another night at a private campsite. Set amongst a sea of magnificent desert oaks, Kings Creek Station is the perfect place to dive into a real outback camping experience. 

Enjoy another night telling stories around the campfire before settling back beneath the stars. 


Day 3 - Watarrka (Kings Canyon) to Alice Springs
Today is all about exploring Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park. This natural wonder is an incredible place to hike, climb and explore. Marvel mighty chasm and stunning red cliffs which soar over spiky palm forests. The magnificent sandstone walls offer great photo opportunities and incredible vistas.

Later,

You will definitely require a sleeping bag rated to -5C during the winter season (June to August). 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! You can also buy a fly net from a local store in Alice Springs or Uluru.

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, wind breaker, a beanie, scarf, gloves and good woollen socks are recommended.

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

You'll also need 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.

For this tour you will be sleeping in a swag under the brilliant stars of the Milky Way. Tour experienced guides will show you all you need to know to get one of the best night's sleep you've ever had! The swag is extremely warm, comfortable and above all, safe. Tents are available for those less adventurous at extra cost of $60 per person on twin share basis for the 2 nights when you are camping with us.

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 the time of booking.
