Why we love this trip

  • Join an Indigenous Guide on a Mala walk around the base of Uluru, an experience exclusive to Intrepid Travel

  • The ancient formations of Kata Tjuta and the monumental Uluru are synonymous with the quintessential Australian landscape

  • Dine on local food and wine under the stars and camp on the vast red earth of the outback, well away from civilisation

  • Guided walks at Kata Tjuta and around Uluru provide insight into Indigenous Australian history and spirituality

Is this trip right for you?

  • Temperatures in the Red Centre can be extreme. During the day the weather can be very hot so it’s important to bring the necessary sun protection, such as sunscreen, sun hat and extra layers, and to drink plenty of water. In the evenings it can get cold, so bring base layers and warm clothing.

  • Camping may not appeal to everyone, although a proper bed, linen and electricity are provided. Motel accommodation can be provided for those who don’t want to camp.

Start the day by visiting the 36 red rock domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), getting up close to this ancient geological formation. Get to know the domes, dunes and gullies on a walk through the Domes of Kata Tjuta. We make our way to Uluru (Ayres Rock) as the sun sets; enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and watch the colours of the rock change. In the evening, a 1,000 star dinner is awaiting you back at camp. With the red earth beneath your feet and the starry sky overhead, sit down to a candlelit spread of locally sourced food and wine. Spend the night in twin share permanent tents, with comfortable beds, linen, towels, lighting and cooling fans provided.

Notes: If you don’t want to camp, there’s the option of staying in motel style accommodation. Please see trip code PAYM2.
