Day 1 (Lunch / Dinner)

 

Small group 4WD Uluru and Watarrka Tour Red CentreAfter 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)

 

After watching the sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta from a lookout close to our campsite, it's breakfast and then off to Kata Tjuta for a 7km hike through the magnificent "Valley of the Winds". After a leisurely lunch we head to Curtin Springs Cattle Station with plenty of time to get a close look at a typical working cattle station before we travel to Kings Creek Station for our second nights bush camp. Our private campsite at Kings Creek is miles from the crowds, which is where the feeling of ‘wayoutback’ really starts to take hold. After a campfire dinner it's time to kick back and be mesmerised by the millions of stars on display.

 

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. 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).
