Get a new perspective of the Australian Outback atop a 'ship of the desert' during a visit to an Outback Camel Farm. Make tracks across sunburnt plains to the captivating domes of Kata Tjuta, then head to Australias most iconic landmark and watch the colour of the rock change during a magical desert sunset over ancient Uluru a fitting end to a memorable day. When night falls, choose to bunker down in a cosy swag (Aussie bedroll), where you can literally fall asleep under the stars, or in a permanent tent. The following itinerary is therefore only an example of the form your trip could take. Starting off in either Alice Springs or Yulara, set off to experience a working camel farm, perhaps even enjoying a ride. Make our way to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and take a guided walk through the awe-inspiring Domes of Kata Tjuta. Then head to Australia's most iconic landmark: Uluru (Ayres Rock). As the sun begins to set below the horizon, take a glass of sparkling wine and watch the rock's rich colours change against the backdrop of a blazing Red Centre sunset. Head back to camp for a hearty dinner, and ponder what the following day may hold.
