Enjoy the freedom and flexibility to explore the Outback in a small group
This 5-day small group tour is your chance to meet the outback on your own terms. No set itinerary, no rushing around to pre-established timeframes – just you, your small group, and a well-versed local leader exploring the Red Centre at your own pace. Get to all the big name attractions – Uluru/Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon, the Western MacDonnell Ranges – and perhaps visit lesser-known sites like Trephina Gorge, Owen Springs, Ruby Gap and the Eastern MacDonnell Ranges.
Witnessing an Uluru sunset is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Have your camera ready when taking in this spectacular sight.
Spend two days exploring the sites of the MacDonnell Ranges, both East and West: Ormiston Gorge, Ellery Creek, Simpsons Gap and Rainbow Valley.
Armed with a flexible itinerary and a knowledgeable local leader, this itinerary allows you to discover the Red Centre at your own pace.
Local Aboriginal guides will provide ample insight into their culture, history and relationship to the land. Gain insight into the ancient rock painting near the Mutitjulu Waterhole by Uluru and learn about the Arrernte people's caterpillar dreamtime story at Emily Gap.
Admire the breathtaking formations of Kata Tjuta, which are believed to be about 500 million years old.
Spend the evenings camping in stunning Outback settings.
All four nights are camping, and one may be bush camping depending on what the group feels like and how we are tracking
The Red Centre can be very hot during the summer time and in the winter, below freezing at night. Ensure you have prepared for the weather
The idea of this 5 day itinerary is to be flexible while still seeing the major highlights of the Red Centre

Excellent trip to see the best parts of the Nothern Territory in a short space of time! Try to get to Darwin a few days early and stay in Alice a few days afterwards to really make the most of it!

Being outside everyday in this truly awesome country was mind-blowing. It's so strange and wonderful and nothing like what I expected the desert to be. The ancient land and culture is so alive and it crept into my Soul. Every day brought a new surprise and highlight. Who would have thought that big skies, rocks and a lot of dust could make for such a profound experience!
