What to Expect

No trip to Australia is complete without visiting Uluru, in the 'Red Centre' - a region famous for its cultural connection, native vegetation and stunning landscape. This trip is the perfect choice for budget-conscious travellers looking to experience all that the region has to offer! It's affordable and great fun! 


Day 1: Uluru Base Walk & Uluru Sunset (lunch, dinner) 

Be ready for pick up from Alice Springs accommodation at 5.30 am in the morning. Then, you will head to Uluru, the World’s Largest Rock. 

You'll then have an opportunity to complete an Uluru Base Walk, stopping by beautiful sites including the Mala Walk, Mutijulu Waterhole and witnessing authentic Aboriginal cave paintings.

This evening you'll experience the sunset over Uluru and witness the magical rock face changing colour. It's an unforgettable sight. You'll then spend the night at the Ayers Rock Campground equipped with toilets and showers. 

Day 2: Kata Tjuta & Uluru Sunrise (breakfast, lunch, dinner)

It's an early start this morning as you depart the Ayers Rock Campground in time to catch the magical Uluru sunrise! Watch the desert come to life and the colours flicker over the beautiful terrain.

Then, it's time to walk through the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuta, feel the spiritual significance of the land and listen to your guide as they inform you about the historical past of the area. After that, you will head to the Aboriginal Cultural Centre where you'll hear tales from the 'Tjukurpa' Dreamtime.

After a long day, spend the night at the historic Kings Creek Station with toilets and showers, 20km from Kings Canyon.

Day 3: Kings Canyon (Breakfast, Lunch)

On your final day, you will wake up and head to Kings Canyon. Here, you will enjoy a 3-hour guided hike to the rim of the canyon to see the 'Lost City' and witness the morning sun gleam over the sandstone domes. 

Then, visit several Amphitheatres, the north and south walls and descent into the beautiful palm-filled Garden of Eden. 

You'll return to Alice Springs at approximately 5:00 pm. Get washed and cleaned up before meeting your guide for dinner and a couple of beers at The Rock Bar (at your own cost).

A swag is made out of heavy-duty canvas, sewn into a cocoon-like bag providing warmth, comfort and security - the ultimate of all bush beds! They have a 2-inch thick comfy mattress. You sleep inside your sleeping bag inside your swag so your body heat is trapped inside your sleeping bag and swag. A lot warmer than a tent!
