Itinerary Day 1: Ayers Rock
After collecting you from Ayers Rock Airport early afternoon, we will head in to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. You will have the opportunity to do a camel ride at Yulara and discover life atop one of the regions earliest forms of transport. This afternoon embark on an interpretive base walk of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and do not climb it). The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset. After dinner cooked over the open fire, some campfire stories and star gazing at our private campsite, it’s time for a good night’s rest at our private campsite before another active day tomorrow.

Day 3: Kata Tjuta National Park to Alice Springs
This morning we enter the Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park, home of a mighty chasm with sheer red rock faces which soar over 100 metres above lush palm forests. The rim of Kings Canyon is a 6km round trip walk and you will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and tranquil Garden of Eden. After lunch, we make our way towards the iconic outback town of Alice Springs, arriving in the early evening. This town has a vast pioneering history and will feel like the big smoke after 2 and a half days in the ‘Bush’. We’ll visit Anzac Hill for a panoramic view of ‘The Alice’ providing a great opportunity to really see the oasis in the desert.
You won’t need your swag tonight, as your hostel accommodation is included (dormitory/twin or double room) along with dinner for our last night together. Later, you’ll have the chance to wash your dusty clothes before experiencing the nightlife of this charming outback town.
