What's included in this trip
3 Day Rock the Centre SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Welcome to rough and ready, but decidedly charming, Alice Springs. Get the adventure underway with a visit to a working camel farm (and perhaps with a ride on one of these iconic creatures). Hop to it exploring the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta on a Valley of the Winds hike, then watch the sun set over ginormous Uluru.
Shake off the brisk morning air with a walk around the base of the world's biggest rock. Learn about the sacred significance of Uluru to the local Aboriginal people and admire their traditional arts and craft work at the Cultural Centre. Spend a night camped under the stars in Watarrka National Park.
Trek along the crater rim of Kings Canyon, savouring the incredible views over the Amphitheatre, then descend into the canyon and discover the park's Lost City and Garden of Eden. The adventure winds up upon arrival back in Alice Springs.
