Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Alice Springs/Uluru (Ayers Rock)

Flanked by rugged hills and ridges, Alice Springs is the gateway to Central Australia and the outback. Spectacular Uluru awaits with its ever-changing hues. Explore its vast base and discover ancient Aboriginal art and waterholes that bring life to the surrounding desert. Take some time to learn about one of the oldest cultures in the world, and their relationship to Uluru, with a visit to a local cultural centre. In the evening, enjoy unforgettable sunset views of the magnificent monolithic rock.

Day 2 Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)/Kings Canyon

View a spectacular sunrise over the Red Centre at Kata Tjuta. Hike through winding gorges and past sandstone domes in the Valley of the Winds. Enjoy a traditional camp oven dinner cooked in the hot coals of the fire at Kings Creek Station. Swap stories and be mesmerised by thousands of stars sparkling from the clear desert night sky.

Day 3 Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon)/Wallace Rockhole

Hike between sheer cliffs and diverse plant species at King's Canyon, a gem of the Northern Territory, then walk down to explore the Garden of Eden rock pool. After a picnic lunch, head to Hermannsburg - a mission famous for its Aboriginal art and crafts. Learn about the life of renowned Indigenous artist Albert Namatjira and view his unique artwork at the gallery. After a drive through the sands of the red centre, arrive at the Wallace Rockhole Aboriginal community for an unforgettable evening of tasty bush tucker cooked on the barbecue. Take this opportunity to indulge in some of Australia's more unusual culinary delights - kangaroo, emu and camel.

Day 4 Western MacDonnell Ranges/Alice Springs

On the way to Alice Springs, visit Wallace Rockhole's ancient rock paintings and carvings with a knowledgeable local guide. There's also a chance to learn the special techniques behind traditional dot painting during a class. After getting creative, continue on to the Western MacDonnell Ranges. Explore the rich earthy beauty of Standley Chasm and Simpsons Gap. Enjoy a peaceful picnic in the beautiful surroundings and perhaps take a hike to spot local rock wallabies that inhabit the area. Say goodbye to new friends back in the outback town of Alice Springs, perhaps over a cold Aussie beer or delicious kangaroo steak.
