Travel across the sunburnt Australian outback to Uluru and Watarrka
Venture into Australia's rugged Red Centre and encounter the myth-suffused landscapes and staggering natural attractions that have made the Outback so justly famous. Wander among the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta on a Valley of the Winds walk, be treated to a hearty campsite dinner and fall asleep gazing up into some of the clearest skies you're ever likely to behold. Catch an unforgettable sunrise over Uluru and learn about Aboriginal Australia's Creation Time culture from a local indigenous guide, then visit Australia's own Lost City and Garden of Eden on the Kings Canyon Rim Walk. Short on time but big on experience, this three-day Uluru Safari provides a fascinating insight into the quintessential Australian outback (the tour code for this trip was previously PISR ).
What's included in this trip
3 Day Uluru Safari SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Welcome to Alice Springs, the Red Centre's dusty, character-filled heart. Make tracks for Uluru, stopping by a camel farm en route for an optional ride on one of these intriguing creatures. Arrive in our permanent campsite at Yulara and check out the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta on a Valley of the Winds hike. Watch the colour of the rocks change, glass of sparkling in hand, as the Outback works one of its magical sunsets, then return to a home-cooked dinner at camp.
Wake early for the opportunity to witness a truly unforgettable sunrise over Uluru. View the rock from different vantage points and learn about one of the world's oldest living cultures on an interpretive walk led by a local indigenous guide. Browse Aboriginal arts and crafts at the Cultural Centre, then travel on to our exclusive campsite located within the Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) for another night camped under sparkling night skies.
Enter the Lost City and take a dip in the Garden of Eden on the Kings Canyon Rim Walk. Wander among the ochre-coloured rock walls and columns of Watarrka National Park and try to take that perfect photo that captures it all before heading back to Alice Springs. Although Alice is relatively small, the town certainly has its charms and is worth booking in an extra night at for those whom the time permits.
