Day 1 – Alice Springs to Kata Tjuta & Uluru
From busy Alice Springs, set off to experience the magic and wonder of ancient Uluru. Make an unusual stop at an authentic outback camel farm and, for those that are keen, there is the option to go for a short ride on one of these enigmatic 'ships of the desert'. Continue on to the permanent campsite at Yulara, and enjoy a tasty lunch before embarking on an afternoon hike around magnificent Uluru. Traverse the perimeter of this majestic monolith, stopping to explore several ancient rock caves. Marvel at the sheer size and depth of colour that makes Uluru such an impressive sight. Finally, as the sun begins to disappear below the horizon, sip a cheeky glass of bubbles and watch the rock's chameleon hues change against the backdrop of a blazing Red Centre sunset. This is truly the perfect end to a remarkable day. (LD)
Day 2 – Uluru to Kings Canyon region
Experience another memorable vista as day breaks over the rolling domes of Kata Tjuta. Get your walking shoes on next as it’s time for an 8 km hike through the spectacular Valley of the Winds, home to the mythical corkwood-tree women. En route to Kings Canyon, travel through the rolling red dunes that are the hallmark of Central Australia and where a host of optional activities awaits. Feast on a traditional camp oven dinner, straight from the coals of the fire, and discover constellations in the clear desert sky. Then perhaps tell tall tales by firelight before drifting off to sleep amid the sounds of the incredible outback. (BLD)
Day 3 – Kings Canyon to Alice Springs
Within the imposing Kings Canyon, discover the Lost City and the Garden of Eden on a 7 km hike. Admire the towering walls, crevices and plateau of Watarrka National Park - there is something quite magical about this place. The photo opportunities are endless in Kings Canyon so be sure to load up the memory card. At the end of the trek it’s time to refuel with a bite to eat before making the journey back to the remote centre of Alice Springs. (BL)
