You'll then have an opportunity to complete an Uluru Base Walk, stopping by beautiful sites including the Mala Walk, Mutijulu Waterhole and witnessing authentic Aboriginal cave paintings.

It's an early start this morning as you depart the Ayers Rock Campground in time to catch the magical Uluru sunrise! Watch the desert come to life and the colours flicker over the beautiful terrain.
Then, it's time to walk through the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuta, feel the spiritual significance of the land and listen to your guide as they inform you about the historical past of the area. After that, you will head to the Aboriginal Cultural Centre where you'll hear tales from the 'Tjukurpa'Dreamtime.
After a long day, spend the night at the historic Kings Creek Station with toilets and showers, 20km from Kings Canyon.
Day 3: Kings Canyon (Breakfast, Lunch)
On your final day, you will wake up and head to Kings Canyon. Here, you will enjoy a 3-hour guided hike to the rim of the canyon to see the 'Lost City' and witness the morning sun gleam over the sandstone domes.
