Day 1 - Alice Springs to Ayers Rock
Departing Alice Springs bright and early, we hit the road on our adventure of a lifetime (for those commencing the tour at Uluru, we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or the airport). Our journey begins heading south through the Waterhouse and James Ranges before stopping to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of our trip. After taking a break for lunch and collecting guests from Ayers Rock Airport, the afternoon is dedicated to exploring Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Travel to the base of Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, hearing of the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa) and learning about the art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people. We conclude at the acclaimed Cultural Centre where you can explore the displays and learn of the flora and fauna of this unique area. End the day experiencing the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It is a great time to kick back and contemplate the vastness of the desert and a while getting to know your fellow travellers. Afterwards settle in at our private camp and enjoy a hearty meal before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.
MEALS INCLUDED - DAY ONE Lunch / Dinner
Day 2 - Ayers Rock to Kings Creek Station
Rising early, take a short walk to a lookout close to our campsite to view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta without the hustle and bustle of the public viewing areas before heading off to Kata Tjuta for a walk through the "Valley of the Winds." Afterwards, we're off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for our second nights' remote private bush camp, complete with bush toilet and shower. With nobody else for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Dinner around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingoes howling in the distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.
MEALS INCLUDED - DAY TWO Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner
Day 3 - Kings Creek to Watarrka
Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. We will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the 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.
