Itinerary

Travel from busy Alice Springs to experience the magic and wonder of ancient Uluru. Make an unusual stop at an authentic outback camel farm. For those that are keen, there's the option to go for a short ride on one of these 'ships of the desert'. Continue on to the permanent campsite at Yulara for a tasty lunch before embarking on an afternoon Uluru tour. Join a passionate local guide and traverse the perimeter, including several ancient caves. Marvel at the sheer size and depth of colour that makes Uluru such an impressive sight. While sipping a cheeky glass of bubbly, watch the rock's chameleon hues change against the backdrop of a blazing Red Centre sunset.
Experience another memorable vista as day breaks over the rolling domes of Kata Tjuta. Set off on an 8km hike through the spectacular Valley of the Winds, home to the mythical corkwood-tree women. En route to Kings Creek Station, travel through the rolling red dunes that are the hallmark of Central Australia and where a host of optional activities await. Feast on a traditional camp oven dinner, straight from the coals of the fire, and discover constellations in the clear desert sky. Fall asleep to the sounds of the Outback.
Within the imposing Kings Canyon, discover the Lost City and the Garden of Eden on a 7km hike. Admire the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. The camera opportunities are endless in Kings Canyon, so after loading up the memory card, take time for a dip in one of the tranquil rock pools. Return to Kings Creek Station for a bite to eat before making the journey back to the remote centre of Alice Springs. A tender Kangaroo Steak and a glass of cold beer might just be the perfect way to end this unforgettable outback tour.
