What to Expect

This small group adventure encompasses the very best the Red Centre has to offer. Take three days to explore three iconic locationsUluru, Kings Canyon & Kata Tjuta – all wrapped up in one convenient tour. 


There is an excellent reason why Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The park was first added to the list in 1987 when the international community recognised its spectacular geological formations, rare plants and animals, and outstanding natural beauty.


Your expert local guide will uncover some of the incredible secrets the Red Centre offers with guided commentary, stories and hidden gems that really bring this place to life. 


You'll also have the choice of a couple of different sleeping options. For the more adventurous traveller, there is the traditional grassroots basic "swag" experience – sleeping under the stars in a canvas-covered bedroll. However, if you're after a more comfortable, private camping experience, you can book permanent safari tents with mattresses.


Day 1: Uluru 


Your tour starts with pickups from either Ayers Rock Airport or Ayers Rock Campground, where you'll stop for lunch. Then, head to the Red Centre's indigenous interpretive cultural centre. You'll learn about this extraordinary national park's cultural, ecological, historical, and geological significance.


With the anticipation and excitement growing, make a short drive towards the base of Uluru as you begin to comprehend the sheer size and magnificence of the giant monolith, getting up close and personal to explore further. Walking to Mutitjulu waterhole, you'll discover sacred rock art sites in family caves and hear the creation stories of Kuniya and Liru as you continue the base walk towards Kuniya Piti.


From here, drive around sacred sites towards Kantju Gorge, where you'll see the highest waterfall in Central Australia, an elder's cave and the world's oldest pantry. After exploring the world's most impressive rock up close and personal, you'll retreat for panoramic views to witness one of the most incredible sunsets on the planet, all while having dinner cooked for you. 


Transport: Private vehicle with approx 1 hr driving time. Hiking of 2-3 km, taking 2-3 hrs.
Accommodation: Swag or safari tent


Day 2: Uluru to Kata Tjuta to Kings Canyon


Wake early for a light breakfast and head off for a spectacular sunrise in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. You thought Uluru was special, but just when you think it couldn't get any more majestic, you'll approach the stunning silhouette of Kata Tjuta. Here you'll set off on a hike through the Valley of the Winds or Walpa Gorge, marvelling at the mighty conglomerate rock formations.


After exploring Kata Tjuta, make your way towards Kings Canyon region just in time to experience a glorious outback sunset followed by a hearty meal around the campfire. 


Transport: Private vehicle with approx 4 hrs 30 min driving time. Hiking of 2-6 km, taking 2-4 hrs.
Accommodation: Swag or safari tent


Day 3: Kings Canyon to Yulara/Ayers Rock


Head off early to explore the mighty Kings Canyon (Watarrka), venturing into the ancient landscape and sacred grounds of the Ulpanyali and Lilla people. Arriving at the jewel in the crown at the centre of Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon), find yourself surrounded by towering 100-metre cliff faces, views of sandstone chasms and jaw-dropping backdrops that will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.


Grab your water, hat and sturdy shoes and set off on foot to explore (the most seasonally applicable part of) the canyon in more detail.


After a well-earned rest, you can enjoy some downtime as the bus meanders its way to your final destination. This evening you'll conclude your exploration back in Yulara.


Transport: Private vehicle with approx 3 hrs driving time. Hiking of 2-4 km, taking 2-4 hrs.
Accommodation: Swag or safari tent
