Why do we love this

We love that this takes you through the heart of the Outback in style. You'll still experience all the magic of the Red Centre, and sleeping in beds along the way adds a little luxury! Perfect for those wanting to experience the Red Centre in comfort. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Day 1: Alice Springs - Kata Tjuta - Uluru Sunset (lunch, dinner)
Your day starts early, with pickups from 5.45 am in Alice Springs. You can also start this tour from Uluru. If beginning there, you'll be picked up by the bus at around 1.00 pm.

Travelling from Alice Springs, your first stop for the day is a working outback camel farm. You’ll have the chance to lope through the outback on a ‘ship of the desert’ here (additional cost).

Afterwards, hit the road to Uluru National Park. You'll be wowed by the sight of Uluru in the distance, and not far off is the just as stunning Olgas (Kata Tjuta). This site appears suddenly from the flat desert landscape, and the 36 different domes are quite breathtaking! Following lunch, you'll get to know the site pretty well on an afternoon hike. Explore the Valley of the Winds and fall in love with this special place. 

As evening falls, enjoy a glass of bubbles as the sun sets over Uluru casting incredible colours on the Rock. Afterwards, it’s time to tuck into the famous 1,000 Star Dinner: an outdoor candlelit feast of delicious food and wines. 

Today, driving time is approximately 4.5 hours. Walking is approximately one hour.


Day 2: Uluru sunrise - Cultural walk (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
It’s an early rise today but seeing Australia is what you came for, right? After watching a fiery outback sun rear up over the world’s biggest rock, you'll head off on an unguided base walk. This way, you'll get a real sense of The Rock’s scale.

Afterwards, you'll learn about the cultural significance of this iconic landform on a cultural interpretative walk with an indigenous guide. In their creation-time stories, the Anangu’s ancestral beings the Mala settled here after being chased to the region by an evil dog-like creature called kurpany.  You'll hear all about this Dreamtime story as you wander.

Then, make a visit to the on-site Cultural Centre to learn more!

Tonight you'll head to an exclusive campsite in Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park.

Total driving time today is around three and a half hours. Total walking time is approximately two hours (or up to 4 if you do the full 8.5km base walk.)


Day 3: Kings Canyon Rim Walk (breakfast, lunch)
After breakfast, get your hiking shoes on and head out to explore the impressive formations of Kings Canyon on the Rim Walk. You’ll be left breathless by the sheer beauty of the canyon, as you trek through the Amphitheatre, the Lost City, the lush and ancient Garden of Eden and the North and South Walls.

After the hike, enjoy a tasty lunch - a welcome prospect after your massive day of exploring!

You'll then make your way back to Alice Springs. On arrival, you're free to leave and carry on your travels. 

Total driving time takes around five hours today. Total walking time is approximately three hours.


Please note: take into account that you may need to stay an extra night in Alice Springs. Flights should be booked to depart Alice Springs the day after the trip finishes to ensure you arrive on time.
