Itinerary Wayoutback offers an authentic outback adventure with a touch of style and quality. Travel with a small group (maximum 16 people) in a purpose built 4-wheel drive vehicle. As well as experiencing the wonders of Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Watarrka (Kings Canyon), we'll give you the opportunity to really experience the desert - driving on dirt roads, private bush camps, eating quality food cooked over a campfire and sleeping under the clearest southern stars you can imagine.
3 DAY ITINERARY
Day 1 (Lunch / Dinner)
After picking you up from your accommodation in Alice Springs bright and early at approximately 6.00am, we complete ticketing and introductions and then hit the road on our adventure of a lifetime. (For those commencing the tour at Uluru we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel at approximately 1.10pm or the airport at 1.30pm.
Our journey begins heading south to Erldunda travelling through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at the Camel Farm for refreshments and a Camel ride if you're keen (own expense). We stop at Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal artifacts. On the way to Uluru we stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of our trip.
After a stop for lunch and our arrival at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, we head to the Cultural Centre and the opportunity to learn about the local Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa) before a short, guided walk at the base of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and Anangu, the indigenous custodians, respectfully ask visitors not to climb it).
Of course no Uluru tour would be complete without experiencing the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset, complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It's a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert.

Day 2 (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)
From a lookout close to our campsite we can view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta before heading off to Kata Tjuta for a leisurely 7km walk through the "Valley of the Winds". After a stop at the Resort for fuel and refreshments, we're off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for our second nights' private bush camp, complete with bush toilet and shower. With nobody else for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Dinner
around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars.

Day 3 (Breakfast / Lunch)
A leisurely start to the day before we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. We'll visit the Amphitheatre and the Lost City plus a swim in the tranquil Garden of Eden if you wish.
Later we start making our way back to Alice Springs travelling on a typical outback dirt road. We'll drop you back at your hostel/hotel early evening and usually all meet later for a bit of a night on the town (Alice seems like the big smoke after 3 days in the bush).

Absolutely brilliant, they went above & beyond what was required of a company to ensure that my trip was a great experience. The guide (Katie) was professional. knowledgeable & fun. They catered well for differing dietary requirements & the private campsite on the second night was great. Well done Wayoutback Desert Safaris!
