This morning we will travel from Alice Springs to Uluru (Ayers Rock), approximately a 4.5 hour drive. While travelling through this remote country, the rugged desert landscapes and the MacDonnell Ranges are magical to witness - make sure you have your camera handy! You’ll learn about the natural and geological history of the region, as well as the unique Australian desert flora and fauna in the area. Your driver/guide knows this part of the world very well, so feel free to ask any questions.

During the journey, we’ll stop at a local roadhouse for a quick break. Look out for Attila (Mt Conner) as we travel through Curtin Springs Station before arriving at Ayers Rock Resort, ready to explore the amazing World Heritage Listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

When we arrive, we’ll first stop at the Cultural Centre at Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park - there will be time to explore the galleries and perhaps see local Aboriginal artists at work if we’re lucky. As we travel to the base of Uluru, our local guide will share the Aboriginal Tjukurpa (creation) stories with us. On our walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole, one of the few permanent water sources around Uluru, we’ll learn about its sacred sites and how to interpret the meaning of the ancient rock art. 
After this bucket list experience, we’ll travel to see yet another icon, Uluru. We’ll unwind with a sparkling glass of wine (or two) while we watch the sunset at Uluru from the viewing platform. Witnessing the incredible changing colours as the sun sets below the horizon is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Breakfast

This morning after breakfast, we’ll head to the spectacular Kata Tjuta, also known as The Olgas. Along the way, we’ll stop to enjoy the panoramic views of Kata Tjuta’s southern side at a viewing platform, before continuing onto Walpa Gorge. 

Once we arrive at the Gorge, we’ll spend some time exploring the unusual, but beautiful, conglomerate rock formations. The 1.3km walking trail through Walpa Gorge follows the natural creek between two of the tallest domes of Kata Tjuta. 

After, we’ll return to Yulara in time for lunch (own expense). The afternoon is free for you to spend as you wish, or you can participate in one of three optional tours.

Breakfast

Today you may opt for a leisurely breakfast and free morning before reuniting with the group later, or opt for the Sunrise Field of Light experience (additional cost).
After, the group will come together and join an Indigenous art class led by a local Anangu artist and an interpreter. We’ll learn about traditional art, symbols, and tools, and we’ll even get hands-on and paint our own dot artwork to take home. 

We’ll then travel through spectacular scenery from Ayers Rock Resort, passing through Curtin Springs Station and Atila (Mt. Conner). Along the way your driver/guide will provide informative commentary about the history of the surrounding cattle stations on the way to Kings Canyon. Make sure you keep a look out for wild horses and camels along the way. We’ll arrive at Kings Canyon Resort in time to relax, before enjoying a spectacular sunset*. 

NOTES
*In the summer, drinks will be available to purchase at the sunset viewing area (cash only). After dinner (at your own expense) you will have the opportunity to experience the Light Towers by Artist Bruce Munro, an immersive sound and light installation by acclaimed British artist Bruce Munro, who is also recognised for his Field of Light artwork at Uluru.

Breakfast

This morning after breakfast, we’ll head out to Kings Canyon, also known as Watarrka. We’ll climb the 6 km to the rim of the canyon and take in the marvellous views of Watarrka National Park. For those who want a view without the climbing, you can opt for an easier, shorter walk to explore the boulder-strewn canyon creek bed. 

Time permitting, you may choose to descend into the Garden of Eden, a beautiful, serene waterhole.

We’ll then travel to Alice Springs and make a stop at Erldunda, an authentic Northern Territory Roadhouse located at the junction of the Stuart Highway and Lasseter Highway. We’ll continue to travel along the Stuart Highway before arriving in Alice Springs.

This evening explore Alice Springs as you wish. Your guide may be able to recommend some restaurants in the area, too. 

NOTES: 
The circuit at Kings Canyon is rocky and steep in parts. It is recommended for those with a very good level of fitness only. 

Today after breakfast it’s time to bid farewell to the Northern Territory. 

We trust that you enjoyed your tour and we look forward to seeing you on your next inspiring journey.
