Overview

Prepare for an unforgettable experience of the Australian Outback's vast blue skies, rugged deserts and stunning scenery combined with its cultural and spiritual history. Travel in 4-wheel-drive vehicles specially built for the rugged terrain and off-road bush tracks of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta area, and spend all four nights camping at private bush camps, enjoying dinner cooked over the campfire and hearing the stories of how 'Dreaming' and 'Creation' began. Fall asleep in your swag (a water-resistant camp bed) after staring in awe at the magnificent desert sky with its myriad of stars.

Itinerary

Day 1 Alice Springs – Uluru (L,D)
Departing Alice Springs bright and early, we hit the road on our adventure of a lifetime (For those commencing the tour at Uluru, we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or the airport). Our journey begins heading south through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at the Camel Farm for a Camel ride if wish (own expense). We visit Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal artefacts. Stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of our trip.

After a stop for lunch and our arrival at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, we travel to the base of Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, hearing of the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). Continuing on, we meet our local Aboriginal Guide who will provide a once in a lifetime authentic Indigenous cultural experience with an interpretive walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole where you will hear the stories of the unique landscapes, art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people. We conclude at the Cultural Centre, where you may explore the displays and learn of the flora and fauna of this unique area.

Experience the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset, away from the crowds, complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It is a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert. Afterwards settle in at our remote private camp, complete with our signature Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.

Overnight: Campsite in Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park

Day 2 Uluru – Kata Tjuta – Kings Creek Station- Kings Canyon (B,L,D)
After watching the sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta from a lookout close to our campsite, it's breakfast and then off to Kata Tjuta for a 7km hike through the magnificent "Valley of the Winds". After a leisurely lunch we travel to Kings Creek Station for our second night’s remote outback campsite. Our private campsite at Kings Creek is miles from the crowds, which is where the feeling of ‘wayoutback’ really starts to take hold. After a campfire dinner, it’s time to kick back and be mesmerised by the evening sky.

Overnight: Campsite in Kings Canyon

Day 3 Kings Canyon – Glen Helen (B,L,D)
This morning take a guided walk to see the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka (Kings Canyon). Visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil ‘Garden of Eden’. After Watarrka we 4WD along the famous Mereenie Loop Road where you will be shaken and not stirred! Look out for wildlife along the way before arriving at our permanent camp at Glen Helen, nearby the stunning waterhole that the Traditional owners of this land believe is home to an ancient and powerful Rainbow Serpent.

Overnight: Campsite in Glen Helen

Day 4 Glen Helen - West MacDonnell Ranges (B,L,D)
Spend today exploring the mighty West MacDonnell Ranges. Travelling to Ormiston Gorge, keep your eyes peeled for Perentie Lizards lazing along the banks and take a swim in the rock holes. Hike the “Ghost Gum Walk”, a 1.5 hour loop that takes in views down through the majestic Ormiston Gorge, before following the trail as it descends down close to the gorge and along the rocky floor and Ormiston Waterhole.

We journey on to the Ochre Pits, a registered sacred site offering a unique experience to view the Ochre deposit still used to this day by the Traditional owners. See the natural ochres that have provided materials for Indigenous people for thousands of years.
Afterwards, we travel on to Ellery Creek Big Hole, one of the most picturesque swimming and walking spots in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Surrounded by high red cliffs and the sandy Ellery Creek, the waterhole was carved out by thousands of years of massive floods and is an internationally significant geological site. The permanent water here made it a special meeting place for the Arrernte people and known to them as Udepata.

Late in the afternoon we will 4WD into our remote bush camp. Tonight it is just the group and the wild, providing a great opportunity to star gaze away from the city lights from the comfort of your swag.
