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.
This trip requires a moderate level of fitness as it involves a lot of walking, allowing you to really get among nature. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing.
On most days of the trip, you’ll spend several hours driving through very sparse areas of desert. Crank up the tunes and sit back to enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel.
Group participation makes up a lot of this trip, so you'll be required to help with preparation of meals and cleaning up. These are the kind of tasks that bring a group closer together.

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon have to be seen to be believed. Our expectations of them were not only met but far exceeded. Watching Uluru change colours from orange, to bright red, to grey during sunset will stay with me for the rest of my life. Our guide, Rachael, was amazing! She had a great knowledge of all sites, great sense of humor and an amazing playlist along the way.
