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!
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' and meet your fellow travellers there. Visit a camel farm and take a ride on these ships of the desert. In the afternoon, embark on a base walk of Uluru, 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.
Day 2 - Ayers Rock to Kata Tjuta
Wake early to watch the mesmerising sunrise over Uluru and see life in the desert begin. 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. After working up an appetite, enjoy lunch before waving goodbye to Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park. Your next destination is Kings Creek Station where you'll enjoy another night at a private campsite.
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. Take the 6km round trip around the canyon's edge and visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil Garden of Eden. Enjoy your final meal with your group in the afternoon then head back to Alice Springs.
