This afternoon embark on an interpretive walk at the base of Uluru. The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset. After dinner, some stories and stargazing, it’s time for a good night’s rest at our private campsite before another active day tomorrow. • Uluru • Cultural Centre

Day 2 - Ayers Rock to Kings Creek Station
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.

Day 3 - Kings Creek Station to Watarrka
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 a well-earned lunch we return to Uluru for our final night in the outback. Late afternoon visit the camel farm (optional and own expense) to experience one of the oldest forms of transport in the desert before settling in for our last dinner together around the campfire. Later this evening visit Bruce Munro’s art installation ‘Field of Light’ (optional and own expense) or opt to stay back at camp and marvel at the clearest skies you can imagine.
