Check into Alice Springs YHA and get a good night’s rest before a busy day tomorrow. 

Day 1 - Alice Springs to Kings Canyon

Today we begin our journey to Kings Canyon to experience the fantastic views of the gorge. See huge sandstone walls and the immense canyon floor.  We then head to our camp for the night at Kings Creek Station for a swim and a relaxing evening at our campsite

Day 2 - Kings Canyon to Uluru

Today we depart for Uluru. Nothing really prepares you for the view, it is breathtaking. Learn about the local aboriginal culture as we walk around the base of the Rock. We finish the day with a spectacular sunset over Uluru

Day 3 - Uluru and Kata Tjuta

It's an early start but the sunrise over Uluru is worth it. We then head to Kata Tjuta to hike through the Valley of the Winds. To cap off another perfect day we get to see another sunset over Uluru.

Day 4 - Uluru to Coober Pedy

Today we cruise to Coober Pedy, the opal capital of the world. There is a lot to see on the journey south, an abundance of wildlife and the incredible changing landscape. Tonight we sleep like the locals, underground. 

Day 5 - Coober Pedy to Flinders Ranges

We spend the morning in Coober Pedy and take a tour of the town and opal mine. We continue our journey south to the foothills of the Flinders Ranges to our bush camp at Stony Creek under the beautiful red gum trees.

Day 6 - Flinders Ranges to Adelaide

This morning we go for a hike in the stunning Alligator Gorge. This is a great way to top off our tour and a great welcome to South Australia, the wine state. You will be dropped off at the Adelaide Central YHA for your final night.

Australia is a beautiful and remote place. While it is our intention to follow the itinerary as described, on occasion it may be necessary or desirable to make changes due to weather conditions and cultural significance.
