This is a camping trip for those who are looking for the basics. Simple facilities and lack of emphasis on creature comforts make this an authentic experience of the Australian outback.
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.
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. Sit back and enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel.

Our trip to Uluru with Intrepid was excellent. The itinerary was perfect and our guide made a great experience an even greater one. This was definitely the highlight of our travels in Australia.

Tour and attractions very good. Best part of trip the guided walk with traditional owner of Uluru land. Disappointing travel - buses broke down x 2, which with the very hot and dry weather created unnecessary stress.
