Day 1 (Dinner)
Your Red Centre tour begins at 2pm, where we leave Alice Springs and hit the dirt travelling directly to Kings Canyon via the famous Mereenie Loop Road, visiting varying Red Centre sights along the way. On arrival at Kings Canyon Resort, check in to your 4 star hotel room and, time permitting, we will enjoy a sparkling wine with a selection of canapés whilst watching the amazing sunset on Carmichael Crag at the western end of Kings Canyon. Tonight, enjoy a sumptuous dinner at the resort’s restaurant with your tour group.

Day 2 (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)
Following breakfast we travel to Kings Canyon for an early guided walk. The Rim Walk is botanically and spiritually rich, combined with astounding scenery such as the buttressed domes that surround the Amphitheatre, the Lost City and Garden of Eden. The walk takes approximately 3 hours requiring a good fitness level and for those wanting a softer option, there is the shorter and easier Kings Creek walk leading into the centre of the canyon.
Following the walk, we travel to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, stopping at Willonga Well for lunch under the shade of mighty Desert Oaks with perhaps a glass or two of wine. On arrival at the
National Park, it’s a good time to stretch our legs at Kata Tjuta with the Walpa Gorge ‘Windy Gully’ walk, suitable for most fitness levels. Returning to the hotel, there’s time to prepare for the evening activities and for those partaking in the Sounds of Silence Dinner (additional expense), you’ll be picked up from the hotel while the rest of us find a remote location to observe the famous changing colours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta at sunset, accompanied with canapés and wine or cool refreshments. After sunset we travel back to the hotel for a beautiful 3 course dinner and chat about the day’s events with the rest of the tour group.
SOUNDS OF SILENCE DINNER
You can enhance your Wayoutback Safari with the very popular Sounds of Silence Dinner, an open air dinner adjacent to the stunning Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. Click here for more details.
