WHAT TO EXPECT

Day 1: Uluru to Kings Canyon (dinner)
Pickups begin from 1.00 pm today. Once you meet your guide and fellow travellers before setting out across the stark, dramatic terrain of Central Australia. It's a stunning area, and you'll quickly understand why it's so popular with travellers. 

Your first stop for the day is Kings Creek Station, an authentic outback station. Spend some time exploring here and imagine yourself as an Outback explorer!

By late afternoon you'll arrive at your secluded campsite for the night. Located not far from Kings Canyon, you'll enjoy a campfire meal here before snuggling under the stars.


Day 2: Kings Canyon - Uluru Sunset (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
It’s a pretty early start today, as you're off to complete the 6 km Rim Walk around King’s Canyon. Set out after breakfast, before the day gets too hot.

As you go, your guide will tell about the area’s flora and fauna. Get ready to explore the Lost City – a solitary expanse peopled by craggy sandstone domes – then hike up the surrounding ridges for expansive views along the north and South Walls. Then, make the descent down into the beautiful Garden of Eden. It's pretty steep in parts but well worth the effort.

After your walk, it's time to hit the road to Uluru National Park. Drive past the flat-topped rise of Atila (Mt. Conner) and the Curtin Springs Station Roadhouse before arriving at Kata Tjuta. Here, spend some time wandering around the site’s red rock domes on a guided walk. This is a very spiritual place and has great significance to the local Anangu people. Discover why it's so special as you wander the domes and rock formations.

Afterwards, it's time to finish the day with a bang. Toast the outback’s famous Uluru sunset with a glass of bubbles and enjoy some snacks as you watch the sun fall over The Rock. 

Total driving time today is about three and a half hours.


Day 3: Uluru Sunrise 
You’ve already witnessed an Uluru sunset, but watching the sun rise up over the world’s largest rock is another spectacle altogether! Shade and shadow slide down the rivets lining its side and the colours of the rock itself seem to change.

After being wowed by this light show, it's time to head up close to Uluru on an unguided morning walk around the base. Caves, springs, ancient rock art and a range of flora and fauna are all concealed in its folds, and early on in the day is the quietest time to see them.

When you get back, an indigenous guide will give some background to the spiritual significance of the area during a cultural interpretive walk. This is a privileged insight into one of the world’s oldest remaining cultures. You'll also visit the onsite Cultural Centre to learn more.

Afterwards, it's time to head back to Yulara where your tour comes to an end! You'll finish up before lunch time - just in time to catch the midafternoon flight out of Uluru! Or, stay on and explore The Rock for a few more nights...

Note: A compulsory transfer fee will apply for any flights booked to depart before 12:30pm. If the levy isn’t paid in advance then you’ll have to make payment directly to your leader.
