SMALL GROUP 4WD ECO EXPERIENCE TOUR

Our 3 Day 4WD Eco Experience to Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon is perfect for those who prefer small group (or even private tours) and keeping away from the crowds. Rather than just seeing these icons of the Red Centre, we’ll give you the opportunity to really experience them before retiring to your hotel, a nice shower and three-course restaurant dinners.

Day 1 - Alice Springs to Kings Canyon Resort

Departing Alice Springs at 2pm, we leave the tar and hit the dirt, travelling directly to Kings Canyon with a few scenic stops via the four-wheel-drive Ernst Giles Road. On arrival at Kings Canyon Resort, check in to your 4-star hotel room and, time permitting, we will enjoy a sparkling wine with a selection of canapés while watching the amazing sunset on Carmichael Crag at the western end of Kings Canyon. Tonight, enjoy a sumptuous dinner at the Resort’s restaurant (at your own expense).

Meals: None included today


MEALS INCLUDED - DAY ONE n/a

Day 2 - Kings Canyon to Uluru

Following breakfast, we take a short drive to Kings Canyon for an early guided walk. The Rim Walk is botanically and spiritually rich, combined with astounding scenery such as the buttressed domes that surround the Amphitheatre, the Lost City and Garden of Eden. The walk takes approximately three hours, requiring a good fitness level. For those wanting a softer option, there is the shorter and easier Kings Creek walk leading into the centre of the Canyon.

Following the walk, we make our way to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, stopping at Willonga Well for lunch under the shade of mighty Desert Oaks with perhaps a glass or two of wine. On arrival at the National Park, it’s a good time to stretch the legs at Kata Tjuta with the Walpa Gorge ‘Windy Gully’ walk, suitable for most fitness levels. Returning to the hotel, there’s time to prepare for the evening activities and for those partaking in the Sounds of Silence Dinner (additional expense), you’ll be picked up from the hotel while the rest of us find a remote location to observe the famous changing colours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta at sunset, accompanied with canapés and wine or cool refreshments. After sunset we return to the hotel for a beautiful three-course dinner and chat about the day’s events.


MEALS INCLUDED - DAY TWO Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner

Day 3 - Uluru to Alice Springs

We depart the Resort under darkness to a remote location to witness sunrise over the mighty monolith of Uluru and the domes of Kata Tjuta.

Experience the wonderful walks around the base of Uluru learning of the creation myths and fascinating geology of this magical place.

For those departing from the Ayers Rock Airport / Resort, your guide will deliver you by 12.30pm and for those returning to Alice Springs, we commence our journey back, stopping at Curtin Springs Station for a typical Aussie BBQ lunch. We will return you to your hotel at approximately 5.30pm after three days of stunning beauty and adventure.


MEALS INCLUDED - DAY THREE Breakfast - Lunch

WHAT TO BRING


Wide brimmed hat, face fly nets, sunscreen, walking shoes/boots, toiletries, swim wear, towel, camera, comfortable and casual clothing for 3 days and hand sanitizer.
