WHAT TO EXPECT
No trip to Australia is complete without setting foot in Alice Springs, the 'Red Centre’ of Australia! This is a region famous for its cultural connection, native vegetation and stunning landscapes.
This trip is the ultimate choice for those budget conscious travellers looking to experience all that the region has to offer at an affordable price.
This tour departs from Alice Springs at 5.30 am and finishes on Day 3 in Ayers Rock at 11.00 am. Please try to book your return flights from Ayers Rock after 12 pm on Day 3.
Day 1: Kings Canyon (Meals - L, D)
You will be picked up from your accommodation in Alice Springs at 5:30 am, first destination Kings Canyon.
Enjoy a guided 3-hour hike through the sandstone domes of the Lost City. Visit the many Amphitheatres, North & South Walls and the beautiful Garden of Eden.
Next stop, Curtin Springs where you'll have time for a quick wash and toilet stop before setting up your bush camp. Your guide will prepare a healthy camp-oven dinner. Relax around the fire then curl up in your cosy swag under a million stars.
Day 2: Kata Tjuta & Uluru Sunset (Meals - B, L, D)
Leave the Bush Camp at Sunrise and head to the Ayers Rock Campground for a quick shower and toilet stop.
Feel the spiritual significance on your guided walk through to the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuta. Be shown bush tucker along the hike before heading to the Aboriginal Cultural Centre in the afternoon where you can listen to tales from the ‘Tjukurpa’ Dreamtime.
Spend the evening enjoying dinner at the spectacular Sunset over Uluru. Witness the awesome sight of Uluru changing colour. Tonight you'll sleep at the Ayers Rock Campground with toilets and showers.
Day 3: Uluru Sunrise (Meals - B,L)
Leave Ayers Rock Campground before Sunrise before taking in a memorable Uluru Sunrise over the World’s Largest Rock.
You then have time to complete an Uluru Base Walk around Uluru. Here you'll see beautiful sites such as the Mala Walk, Mutijulu Waterhole and Aboriginal Cave Paintings.
Later, your guide will drop you off at the Ayers Rock (Uluru) Airport an hour before your flight.
This trip is ideal for those who have booked cheap flights with Jetstar or Virgin Australia from Ayers Rock (Uluru) Airport to the next destination.
