The tour starts with a hotel pick up in the comfortably air conditioned minibus. Over the next three days you’ll traverse beautiful backcountry roads with amazing backdrops in this comfortable vehicle. First up enjoy a short sightseeing trip of Alice Springs including a stopover at the ANZAC Hill lookout and a visit to the historic Telegraph Station, where ‘The Alice’ was founded.
Afterwards, depart Alice Springs for Simpsons Gap in the Western MacDonnell Ranges National Park (Tjoritja), where you might spot cute rock wallabies during a short walk. Afterwards relax at Ellery Creek Big Hole, the secret site for Arrernte people and a popular outback swimming spot. Experience the Ghostgum Walk at Ormiston Gorge. Finish the day with a comfortable ride back to Alice Springs and enjoy the changing colours along this truly magnificent range.
Please note: pickup time for today’s tour will be approximately 8:30am.
After breakfast, depart Alice Springs early morning and take the comfortable Stuart and Lasseter Highway across a colourful semi-desert to Watarrka National Park. In the afternoon enjoy the 3 hour walk up and across the famous Kings Canyon plateau, from the sandstone domes of the ‘Lost City’ to the oasis of the ‘Garden of Eden’. Feel on top of the world as you walk along the towering red rock cliffs and take in views of the forest of palms below. Finish the day at Kings Canyon Resort where you will have a typical Outback BBQ dinner and a special camping experience which will make your stay out here very special.
After dinner you will the have the chance to enjoy a relaxed evening around the camp fire at our private campground and take in the spectacular Red Centre night sky before retreating to your personal and very comfortable tent.
Please note: If the temperature is over 36 degrees, the Kings Canyon walk is closed and an alternative activity will be provided.
The day starts with a long drive to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park, sit back and enjoy the scenery pass by. Look out for the odd Brumby or Camel.
Once at Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), take a 1-2 hr walk to a popular lookout (dependent on the time of the year it will either be Walpa Gorge or the Valley of Winds) to view the soaring rock domes – these ochre-coloured shapes are an intriguing and mesmerising sight.
The afternoon / evening will be one to remember as we enjoy the sunset at Uluru (Ayers Rock). This must be one of the most recognisable natural sites on the planet and we will follow up the remarkable desert sunset, with the unforgettable “Sounds of Silence” billion star dining experience.
Wringing out what we can of the day, we will be up early to see sunrise on the rock, before a relaxed pace walk to a water hole and some art sights. There will be time to check out the award-winning Cultural Centre as well, if not already visited the day before.
For those flying out of Ayers Rock / Uluru, we will drop you off in Yulara for your free shuttle bus to the airport, otherwise for those who want a lift back to Alice Springs, we will take the highway, and be back in Alice Springs by mid to late afternoon (it’s a 5hr drive back to Alice!)
