3 Day

AYERS ROCK TOUR (COCKATOO)

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 quality Wayoutback 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, with only a short distance to Ayers Rock while 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.

Tour Itinerary


It’s an early rise if you are joining us in Alice Springs where we'll make the journey to Ayers Rock to meet our fellow travellers joining us there. After lunch and on arrival to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, we'll first visit the Cultural Centre where you can learn first hand from the custodians of this land some stories and the do's and don'ts within the park itself. Whilst at the Cultural Centre your guide will collect any remaining passengers arriving on the later afternoon flights. Following this we then embark on an interpretive base walk of Uluru or, for those still choosing to climb, the opportunity to do so weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and chose not to climb it).

The afternoon is spent enjoying the highlights of Uluru before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset. After our dinner which is cooked over the open fire we can share some campfire stories and perhaps enjoy some star gazing at our private campsite. It’s now time for a good night’s rest in your swag (bush bed) in preparation for another active day of touring tomorrow.

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 we travel to Kings Creek Station to spend the night at our private camp.

This morning we 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 our final meal together we begin our journey back to Alice Springs arriving in the late afternoon.

WHAT TO BRING


Torch, wide brimmed hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, water bottle (1.5 litres), walking shoes/boots, sleeping bag (or can be hired for $30), toiletries, swim wear, towel, camera, comfortable and casual clothing for 3 days.
