Overview
Get an authentic experience of Australia's Red Centre on this 3-day outback tour from Alice Springs. Planning an independent outback trip can be tough, so leave the planning and itinerary to a guide. Sleep under the stars, try typical Aussie bush food, and learn about Aboriginal culture on a guided walk. Explore area highlights such as the Valley of the Winds, Kings Canyon, and the UNESCO-listed Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
Highlights
  • Two nights' camping in the outback with all details arranged
  • Most meals provided, consisting of traditional Australian bush food
  • In-depth lessons on Aboriginal culture and folklore
  • Hikes around the area’s highlights: Kata Tjuta, Uluru, and Kings Canyon
What to Expect
Roll out of bed for early morning pickup at your Alice Springs hotel, where you'll meet your guide and group.You’ll only need to pack 3-days’ worth of clothing and a water bottle, as all food and camping logistics will be handled. Relax on the drive into the outback, knowing that the logistics and details have been worked out ahead of time. Arrive at Kings Canyon for a 3-hour hike around the site's sandstone domes, culminating in a swim at the Garden of Eden. Head for Curtin Springs, where you'll set up your evening's bush camp; enjoy a bush-style dinner and sleep out under the stars. Day two includes hikes through the Valley of the Winds and Kata Tjuta, tales about the Dreamtime at the Aboriginal Cultural Centre, and sunset over Uluru. After an overnight stay at the Ayers Rock Campground, wake to watch the sunrise over Uluru, then head out for a base walk and camel ride before heading back to civilization in Alice Springs.

It was fun-filled packed camping trip from Alice Springs to Uluru and back again. The hikes are a little bit more tedious and may not be for young children or the elderly. There was no showers and toilets for the first night. Peeing in the bushes in the dark under the night sky
