ITINERARY

Why we love this trip
• Fly in and out of Yulara, saving you hundreds of KM driving between Alice Springs and Yulara
• This trips provides you with the best guides in the business who know the Australian outback like the back of their hand
• Wander through the iconic domes of Kata Tjuta, and gaze in awe at the sacred rock of Uluru
• Dine under the stars and camp within privately owned sites on the red earth of the outback
• Hike through natural amphitheatres, rocky chasms and lush oases in Kings Canyon

Is this trip right for you?
• This is a 'no frills' Basix trip. Camping is in permenant tents with swags and sleeping bags
• Temperatures in the Red Centre can be extreme. During the day the weather can be very hot (and the Australian sun is very strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection and drink plenty of water. In the evenings temperatures really drop, so bring base layers and warm clothing.
• This trip requires a moderate level of fitness as it involves a lot of walking, allowing you to really get among nature. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing.
• On most days of the trip, you’ll spend several hours driving through very sparse areas of desert. Crank up the tunes and sit back to enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel.
• Group participation makes up a lot of this trip, so you'll be required to help with preparation of meals and cleaning up. These are the kind of tasks that bring a group closer together.

 

Day 1: Ayers Rock Resort/Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon)
The Outback. The Red Centre. Down Under. The Never Never. Australia's rugged, rust-cloaked centre has gained itself a fair few monikers over the years, but you really need to travel in the region to appreciate its size and scenery. Following an early afternoon pick-up, we set out across the stark, dramatic terrain of central Australia. The Territory' can be a pretty unforgiving place and, in cruising through this landscape, you'll quickly understand how and why it became so engrained in the Australian psyche. Many early pioneers brought camels over to help them traverse what was then one great big unknown. Today you'll have the opportunity to see Australia just how they would've. Our first stop for the day is Kings Creek Station, an authentic outback station. By late afternoon we will have arrived at our night's secluded campsite located not far from Kings Canyon.

*Pick up times vary at different times of the year as flight schedules change. Please confirm your meeting time and location with our Reservations team. Total driving time is around three and a half hours. (D)

 

Day 2: Kings Canyon, Kata Tjuta and Uluru sunset
It's a 6 km walk around King's Canyon (a route known as the Rim Walk), so it's a pretty early start today. We set out after breakfast, before the day gets too hot. Learning from your guide about the area's flora and fauna as you go, you'll enter upon the Lost City - a solitary expanse peopled by craggy sandstone domes - then hike up the surrounding ridges for expansive views along the north and South Walls. The descent down into the Garden of Eden is pretty steep in parts, but well worth the effort. Getting back on the road, we'll drive past the flat-topped rise of Atila (Mt. Conner) and the Curtin Springs Station Roadhouse before arriving at Kata Tjuta. We'll spend some time here wandering around the site's red rock domes on a guided walk, then finish the day toasting the outback's famous Uluru sunset.

Total driving time today is about three and a half hours. (B/L/D)

 

Day 3: Uluru sunrise Ayers Rock Resortt
You've already witnessed an Uluru sunset, but watching the sun rise up over the world's largest rock is another spectacle altogether. Shade and shadow slide down the rivets lining its side and the colours of the rock itself seem to change. While spellbinding from a distance, Uluru is equally impressive checking out up close on an unguided morning walk around the base. Caves, Springs, ancient rock art and a range of flora and fauna are all concealed in its folds, and early on in the day is the quietest (and coolest) time to see them. When you get back, an indigenous guide will give some background to the spiritual significance of the area during a cultural interpretive walk - a privileged insight into one of the world's oldest remaining cultures. After a visit to the onsite Cultural Centre, the tour comes to an end in Yulara before lunch.

Total driving time is about one hour. A compulsory transfer fee will apply for any flights booked to depart before 12:30pm. If the levy isn't paid in advance then you'll have to make payment directly to your leader. (B)
