WHAT TO EXPECT
This Uluru (Ayers Rock) Tour departs from either Alice Springs or Ayers Rock Airport and explores the Red Centre's highlights - Kata Tjuta National Park, Watarrka (Kings Canyon) and also includes a night in Alice Springs - Australia's Outback Town.
The option to start and finish in Ayers Rock Airport allows you to get a good airfare to Ayers Rock Airport while also experiencing Alice Springs.
The 3 night, 4 day Red Centre experience offers value for money featuring private campsites where you have the opportunity to sleep around the campfire in an Aussie Swag. You'll travel in an air-conditioned minibus and absorb the fascinating history of the area and its people provided by your experienced guide – all of this while travelling with other fun loving and active travellers from all over the world... and of course you will hike, climb and explore Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon and visit the Outback town of Alice Springs!
Day 1 - Ayers Rock
After collecting you from Ayers Rock Airport early afternoon, we will head in to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. You will have the opportunity to do a camel ride at Yulara and discover life atop one of the regions earliest forms of transport. This afternoon embark on an interpretive base walk of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and do not climb it). The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset. After dinner cooked over the open fire, some campfire stories and star gazing at our private campsite, it’s time for a good night’s rest at our private campsite before another active day tomorrow.
Day 2 - Ayers Rock to Kata Tjuta National Park
Your guide will wake you bright and early to experience a mesmerising Uluru sunrise, early mornings being such a magical time in the desert. Then it’s a short drive to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), an aboriginal word for “many heads”, to explore its domes of which there are 36 in total. Pull on your hiking boots and take the Valley of the Winds walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness. After lunch it’s farewell to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park as we travel to Kings Creek Station to spend the night at our private camp.
Day 3 - Kata Tjuta National Park to Alice Springs
This morning we enter the Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park, home of a mighty chasm with sheer red rock faces which soar over 100 metres above lush palm forests. The rim of Kings Canyon is a 6km round trip walk and you will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and tranquil Garden of Eden. After lunch we make our way towards the iconic outback town of Alice Springs, arriving in the early evening. This town has a vast pioneering history and will feel like the big smoke after 2 and a half days in the ‘Bush’.
You won’t need your swag tonight, as your hostel accommodation is included (dormitory/twin or double room) along with dinner for our last night together. Later, you’ll have the chance to wash your dusty clothes before experiencing the nightlife of this charming outback town (un-guided).
Day 4 - Alice Springs to Ayers Rock Airport
Today we have an early start. Following breakfast we leave Alice Springs and begin our journey to Ayers Rock. With a short stop along the way we will get you and your baggage to Ayers Rock Airport or Resort before saying farewell to this magical destination.
