Day One - Alice Springs to Kata Tjuta and Uluru

Welcome to the outback! The journey today takes us to Ayers Rock Resort which will give you your first glimpse of Uluru. On to Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) where you will take a guided walk of the Valley of the Winds. Then prepare for the spectacular sight of the desert sunset over Uluru. Tonight sleep in a permanent tent or try out an Aussie swag.

Day Two - Uluru to Kings Canyon

It's an early start to catch the sunrise over Uluru but it is worth the effort. Enjoy a base walk around Uluru with an Aboriginal guide and deepen your understanding of the Mala people. It is then on to the campsite in the Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon).

Day Three - Kings Canyon

There is a lot to explore at Kings Canyon this morning as we take a spectacular Hike. You will see all that this beautiful place has to offer including the Amphitheatre, Lost City, the lush Garden of Eden and the Spectacular North and South Walls. After Lunch we head back to Alice Springs via the Gilles track and settle in for the night. There is an opportunity to enjoy dinner in town with your group (own expense).

Day Four - Western MacDonnell National Park

Today it is off to the Western MacDonnell Ranges which is the Red Centre’s best kept secret. We start the morning with a walk through the beautiful rainbow coloured walls of Ormiston Gorge. Keep your eyes out for the local wildlife as they come out to play. We then head on to Ellery Creek and for the brave take a dip in the beautiful but cold waters of this magnificent hidden gem. Next stop is the world famous Simpson Gap which holds a significant cultural place in the local Aboriginal community and their dreamtime stories. To finish up our time in the beautiful Western MacDonnell Ranges we enjoy the setting sun on the way back to Alice Springs where you will be dropped back at the YHA for your final night.
