Itinerary

Day 1 – Alice Springs to Uluru

  • Upon departing Alice Springs, you head south with a first stop at a Camel Farm and a camel ride if you're keen (own expense).
  • Continue to Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal artefacts. On the way to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, keep your eye out for Atila (Mount Connor), which you’d be forgiven for thinking was Uluru!
  • After lunch, you enter Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park for a visit to the Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa) before a short, guided walk at the base of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and Anangu, the indigenous custodians, respectfully ask visitors not to climb it). As the sun disappears into the land for another day enjoy some sparkling wine and nibbles while watching magnificent Uluru go through a vibrant colour change.
  • Afterwards, you head to the campsite to enjoy dinner before retiring to our comfortable permanent tents or rolling out the swag for a night under clear southern skies. You will never see stars better than this!
  • Meals included: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 – Uluru to Kings Creek Station

  • Get up early to view the sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta from near your campsite before driving to Kata Tjuta for a walk through the ‘Valley of the Winds’. After a brief stop at the Ayers Rock Resort it’s time to head to Kings Creek Cattle Station to a remote and private campsite. The camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Experience a campfire dinner with new friends and another night out under the stars.
  • Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 – Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

  • This morning take a guided walk to see the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka (Kings Canyon).
  • Visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil ‘Garden of Eden’. You’ll arrive at your Alice Springs hostel/hotel in the early evening where you can meet your new friends later for a meal and drinks.
