Experience ancient culture and magical moments in Australia’s outback
Sacred sites, vast landscapes and 600 million years of history – it could only be Australia’s Red Centre. Join an experienced local leader and group of likeminded travellers on a six-day Premium adventure through the outback, discovering the wonders of Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Alice Springs and Kings Canyon. Learn about the connection between the land and Aboriginal peoples and take part in fantastic dining experiences utilising native bush ingredients. But getting up close and personal with rugged and remote parts of Australia doesn’t mean you have to rough it – enjoy comfortable and well-appointed hotels each night. Come and see what makes this sun-soaked piece of the planet so unforgettable.
Experience the allure of Uluru from your Feature Stay hotel, offering modern amenities, fantastic service and stunning views of the rock and Kata Tjuta.
Taste the best of the outback during unique Exclusive Experiences, enjoying multicourse dinners under the stars and creative meals made with locally sourced, native ingredients.
Get to know the awe-inspiring landscapes of Kings Canyon as your local leader introduces you to a world of sandstone formations, rare plants and native wildlife.
Understand the connection between the landscapes and the Luritja and Anangu people during a cultural experience in Karrke.
Marvel at the Field of Lights, an outdoor art installation made up of more than 50,000 artificial lights, while canapes and sparkling wine compliment this Exclusive Experience.
Temperatures in the Red Centre can be extreme. During the day the weather can be very hot (and the Australian sun is very strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection and drink plenty of water. In the evenings temperatures really drop, so bring base layers and warm clothing.
On some days of the trip, you’ll spend several hours driving through very sparse areas of Australia. Sit back and enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel. Think of it as a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. The drive days can be long, but it’s as much about the journey as the destination, and half the fun is the camaraderie.
This trip includes walks and hikes around the major landmarks of this area. Please read the daily itinerary carefully for details. Walking is the best way to explore these stunning geological features in this otherwise flat landscape, so make sure you bring along comfortable walking shoes.
This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
Please ensure you consult your local government’s advice regarding domestic travel prior to booking this trip.
Our leaders are the classic do-it-all Aussie – they know the best spots to watch the sunset, can drive you to your next destination, take you on a guided hike or even whip up dinner for the group on some trips. While they won’t always do all these jobs on every trip, be aware they will be juggling many things on your tour and may have less time to spend with you. They will always be working hard to ensure you and your group have a fantastic time exploring Australia.

Please note that if you book this trip while it is On Request, or very close to departure, it may take us longer than our usual 2-4 business days to provide you with an outcome about whether it can be confirmed. This is due to a number of external factors, such as staffing levels at some of our hotels which may impact their ability to confirm services in a timely manner. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience when requesting your trip. Alternatively, if you require a faster outcome, you could choose an alternative date further in the future that can be confirmed immediately by us.
A single supplement is available if you’d prefer not to share a room on this trip. The single supplement applies to all nights of your trip and is subject to availability. Please speak to your booking agent for further information.

Travel is always an adventure and, as destinations reopen, there are a few challenges as everyone gets back up to speed and adjusts to the new normal. Our leaders are experts when it comes to dealing with anything unexpected along the journey, so pack your understanding and flexibility, sit back and relax while they take care of the rest.
