There’s more! Heading further afield today, running along the awesome MacDonnell Ranges to visit Standley Chasm, Ellery Creek Big Hole, Ormiston Gorge and Hermannsburg – birthplace of Albert Namitjira and Aboriginal fine art.

Day 3: Alice Springs to Kings Canyon

Today you head towards Kings Canyon, located in the Watarrka National Park, a huge canyon 270m high. Relax and enjoy the drive, the scenery and the aura of the Australian Outback. Enjoy the Canyon Walk, looking up to the towering Gorge above you – or alternatively, take a helicopter ride. Enjoy a traditional Aussie BBQ dining at Kings Canyon Outback Bar & Grill.

Day 4: Kings Canyon to Ayers Rock

Feeling energetic? The walk around the rim of the canyon is definitely worth the effort. Early morning is best, and it takes approximately 3-4 hours. The views from the rim are spectacular, the canyon walk is just as amazing although a little less strenuous. Depart Kings Canyon for Uluru. On arrival pick up your National Parks entry ticket (you will need this each entry into the park), visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre for a great introduction to Tjukurpa (law, knowledge, religion) and the Anangu way of life including their amazing art. Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get to the Uluru viewing area for sunset, one of the best times to experience the light mystique of Uluru.

Day 5: Explore Uluru & surrounds

Sunrise is a must in Central Australia – enjoy it at Uluru, or perhaps this morning at Kata Tjuta, also known as The Olgas, a massive pile of weathered rock domes, 200m higher than Uluru and estimated to be as old as 500 million years. If you like an easy hike, visit Valley of the Winds. Lunch and a swim is a great idea for a break in the middle of the day – right before you head out on your scenic flight for another spectacular view of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Dinner tonight is Sounds of Silence, sunset at Uluru, followed by an evening of dining under the sparkling outback sky. There is so much more to see, ask us about additional nights!
