Itinerary

Day 1 (Lunch*, Dinner)

It’s an early rise if you are joining us in Alice Springs where you will make the journey to Ayers Rock where you will meet your fellow travellers joining us there. On arrival to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, visit a camel farm 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, climate 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 worth a visit before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset. After dinner, some stories and stargazing, it’s time for a good night’s rest at your private campsite before another active day tomorrow.

Day 2 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

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 you travel to Kings Creek Station to spend the night at your private camp.

Day 3 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

This morning you 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, you make your 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 your last night together. Later, you’ll have the chance to wash your dusty clothes before experiencing the nightlife of this charming Outback town.
