5 Day Darwin to Alice Springs Explorer incl. Uluru Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Darwin/Katherine Gorge

Set off early from Darwin for Nitmiluk National Park. Home to Edith Falls and Katherine Gorge, this is an absolutely stunning part of the Australian wilderness. Develop an enhanced appreciation of indigenous culture local to the area on a guided walk through the park, before continuing the journey southbound.

Day 2 Daly Waters/Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu)/Alice Springs

Pass through the town of Tennant Creek, stopping off to walk among the massive boulders of Karlu Karlu en route before arriving in Alice Springs. While probably not the world's most elegant city, Alice Springs does certainly exude a charm uniquely its own and warrants some late afternoon exploring.

Day 3 Alice Springs/Kata Tjuta/Uluru

The outback town of Alice Springs is a travel hub for visitors setting off to the explore the sensational range of natural wonders the Red Centre has to offer. The ancient rock formations of Kata Tjuta (also known as The Olgas) create an amazing landscape of spectacular domes and canyons. An iconic image of outback Australia and a sacred site for the local Aboriginal people, Uluru's remarkable colour changes are a wonder to behold.

Day 4 Uluru/Kings Canyon

The towering sandstone walls of Kings Canyon command breathtaking views of the gorge below and the surrounding desert landscape.

Day 5 Kings Canyon/Alice Springs

Located 1500km from the nearest major city, Alice Springs may be isolated but it still boasts decent restaurants, fascinating Aboriginal art galleries and a lively nightlife.
