The Rock Tour

Start your Red Centre Adventure here! Take in the breathtaking highlights of the majestic Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon

Day 1 – Alice Springs to Kings Canyon

It is an early start this morning but that will all be forgotten as we head into Kings Canyon. Get the legs moving as we take a spectacular 3 hour hike through the sandstone domes of the Lost City viewing the immense North and South Walls as we go. Descend into the Garden of Eden which is a little piece of paradise. We stop for a chance to freshen up at Curtin Springs before heading to our bush camp. Relax around the fire and curl up in your cosy swag under the spectacular night sky. (L, D) 

Day 2 – Kata Tjuta and Uluru Sunset

We depart our camp just after sunrise and head to our first destination, Kata Tjuta. Kata Tjuta is spectacular sight, especially the hike through the Valley of the Winds. Feel the cultural significance as you are guided through and shown all the varieties of bush tucker. There is more chance to learn more about the local Aboriginal people at the Aboriginal Cultural Centre. It is then off to Uluru where we set off on our guided Mala Walk. We spend the evening enjoying dinner while watching the spectacular Uluru Sunset, the colour of the rock literally changing in front of your eyes. Tonight we camp At Ayres Rock Campground. (B, L, D)

Day 3 – Uluru Sunrise to Alice Springs

It is another early morning start but you will not mind because the view of sunrise over Uluru is worth it. After seeing the sun rise we have time to complete the base walk around Uluru taking in Kanju Gorge, Mutitjulu Waterhole and Aboriginal Cave Paintings . Saying goodbye to Uluru we start to head home. There is a chance for an optional camel ride along the way (own expense) before arriving back into Alice Springs. (B, L)
