Day 1: Welcome to Uluru (Ayers Rock)

This afternoon a private transfer will collect you from the airport, and you'll then meet your fellow travellers and driver guide for a drive to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Having lived in the region for tens of thousands of years, traditional owners, the Anangu, have a strong connection with this land. You’ll learn about Tjukurpa, the history, knowledge, religion, morality and law of the local Aboriginal people and their ancestors. Travelling to the spectacular domes of Kata Tjuta, you’ll take a guided walk through Walpa Gorge. Later, enjoy gourmet canapés and wine as the sun sets over Uluru. This evening, get to know your fellow travellers over a delicious meal at Ilkari Restaurant at your hotel.

Day 2: Uluru, Kings Canyon

Start the day with an impressive sunrise over Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and Uluru (Ayers Rock) from the fantastic Kata Tjuta dune viewing area. From here it’s off to the Uluru – Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre for breakfast and an insight into the history of the local Anangu people. Take a walk around the base of Uluru and hear timeless stories, see rock art, and visit Mutitjulu Waterhole. Visit Curtin Springs Station where you’ll sit down to a BBQ lunch and meet one of the locals as you hear about the Severin family and the logistics of running a million-acre cattle property. Next head towards Kings Canyon and view the ‘forgotten wonder’ of Central Australia, Atila (Mount Conner), then make a quick stop at Kings Creek Station, the largest exporter of wild camels in Australia. This evening you’re treated to the unique dining experience, Under a Desert Moon, set in the wilderness under a canopy of the southern night sky (weather permitting).

Day 3: Kings Canyon, Alice Springs

Perfect for observing the changing colours of the landscape, today you’re off on a sunrise 6km Rim Walk exploration of the spectacular Kings Canyon. As you venture around the rim, highlights include the domed Lost City, a stop at Cotterill’s Lookout, and the luscious Garden of Eden. If you’d prefer a more relaxed walk you can opt for a walk along the creek bed. Afterwards we’re off the beaten track, travelling to the Henbury Meteorite Conservation Reserve. Next up we stop at Rainbow Valley, famous for its sandstone bluffs and cliff faces. The coloured layers in the sandstone cliffs are particularly attractive in the afternoon light. Continue to Alice Springs and enjoy dinner at your resort.

Day 4: West Macdonnell Ranges

West MacDonnell Ranges is the ideal place to experience geology, land forms, and variety of native flora and fauna. You’ll take a walk to Simpsons Gap and dramatic Angkerle (Standley Chasm). There’ll be time to cool off with a swim at Ellery Creek Big Hole and to explore the Ochre Pits and learn about ochre’s importance to the Aboriginal people. This afternoon you’ll also visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service to see how this facility provides medical assistance to those living in remote Outback Australia. Tonight you’ll enjoy an incredible dinner cooked in a bush oven and your host, Bob, who will share some tips on his cooking style and his knowledge of Aboriginal bush foods while you dine under the Milky Way.
