Itinerary

Day 1: Pick up at 6.00am from your Alice Springs accommodation you'll head to Erldunda, south through James Ranges and Waterhouse Ranges stopping at a camel farm for refreshments and even a camel ride if you choose. You'll then head to view Mount Connor (Atila), a tableland and rock formation, before finally arriving at Ayers Rock (Uluru). Stopping for lunch it's then on to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Cultural Centre for a fascinating insight into the Aboriginal culture. Those guests commencing the tour from Uluru (Outback Pioneer Hotel or Airport) join in after lunch. A guided walk around the base of Uluru will also give you the opportunity to join an Aboriginal guided walk and dot paining workshop . By sunset, it's time to relax with sparkling champagne and nibbles as you watch the amazing array of colours shimmer across the desert. End the day back at the private camp site and enjoy an Endless Star dining experience before bed.

Day 2: The campsite's nearby lookout is the perfect place to watch the beautiful sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta before packing up and shipping out for a 7km stroll through the Valley of the Winds. Stopping for refreshments, its then on to Kings Creek Cattle Station for a traditional camping experience complete with bush shower and toilet. This remote area offers spectacular views of the George Gill Ranges and offers a campfire dinner under the stars.

Day 3: Begin your final day with a slow rise before starting off for Kings Canyon (Watarrka) for an unbelievable hike through 6km of plateaus, rock crevices and imposing vertical walls. There's also time to see the Amphitheatre and visit the Lost City and Garden of Eden. Later in the day you'll head back for Alice Springs along a dirt road where your 4WD comes in handy crossing sand dunes and river beds. Dropping you back at your accommodation, feel free to join your fellow travellers later for a night on the town.
