Our 3 day Ayers Rock tour offers a value for money experience in Australia's Red Centre. This is our budget tour to Ayers Rock, but still offers a Wayoutback quality experience.
We spend our first night under the Outback stars, and within viewing distance of Ayers Rock (Uluru). The next morning we get up to watch the sunrise over the incredible landscape and we are only a short drive away from Ayers Rock, whilst many tour companies are a 100+ km drive away. We get you up early, but not as early as they do!
Wayoutback stays at private campsites giving you the opportunity to sleep around a campfire in an Aussie Swag and shower under hot water generated from a wood burner.
Travel in an air-conditioned minibus and absorb the incredible, outback landscapes with your experienced tour guide – all of this while travelling with other fun loving and active travellers from all over the world. Hike, climb and explore Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon on this Red Centre tour to remember – a truly unique way to travel Australia.
