This overnight camping experience starts at Alice Springs or Ayers Rock and ends in Ayers Rock on day 2.
Day 1: Alice Springs to Kata Tjuta & Uluru Sunset
Starting in Alice Springs, we stop at an authentic outback camel farm, then continue on to the permanent campsite at Yulara for lunch before embarking to explore the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta. Here, we get up close to this ancient geological formation during an afternoon hike. The perfect end to a remarkable day is watching the Rock’s rich colours change against a blazing Red Centre sunset. Depending on your mood you can choose to sleep in a permanent 4 share safari tent (bunk beds) or in a swag (Aussie bedroll) under millions of outback stars. Optional upgrade to twin tents available at $40/person per tour – twin tent upgrade price includes sleeping bag and pillow. (L,D)
