Day 1 (Lunch / Dinner)
You’re on your way to the remote outback of Central Australia with its red soil, ancient geology and ghost gums. Australian pioneers originally used camels for transport and cartage and you now have the opportunity to check out the view from atop at the Outback Camel Farm at Stuarts Well (own expense). Shortly after we turn off the Stuart Highway we stop at Mount Ebenezer to check out the Aboriginal art and craft on display. The first monolith you will see is Mount Conner (Atila), an imposing mesa located on a flat salt pan – not to be confused with Uluru which is some 100km further along the track.
After we arrive at the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park your guide will take you to the impressive Cultural Centre, where you can gather information on the cultural importance of this amazing place. Afterwards your guide will take you on an interpretive base walk and 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). Watch the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset before retiring to camp for dinner cooked over the open fire, some campfire stories and star gazing at our private campsite before it's time for a good night’s rest for another active day tomorrow.
Day 2 (Breakfast / Lunch )
Your guide will wake you bright and early to experience a mesmerising Uluru sunrise which can be viewed close-by our campsite, 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 the return transfer to Ayers Rock Airport your Red Centre experience comes to an end.
