Know More about this tour

With three days to explore the outback, you’ll travel from Alice Springs to the desert stop of Erldunda; take a base walk and hear Dreamtime (folklore) stories at Uluru; go for a guided walk at Kata Tjuta; and sleep under the stars like a swagman!

Day 1 Alice Springs - Uluru (L,D)
Departing Alice Springs we start your adventure early (for those commencing the tour at Uluru, we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or the airport). Our journey begins south through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at the Camel Farm for a Camel ride (own expense). We stop at Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse to view or purchase Aboriginal artefacts. Stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation.

After a stop for lunch we will head to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, to hear about Aboriginal law and religion. Then meet your Aboriginal Guide to have an authentic Indigenous cultural experience with an interpretive walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole to hear the stories of the unique landscapes, art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people followed by a hands-on dot painting session. We conclude at the Cultural Centre to 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. 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.

DAY 2 Uluru - Kata Tjuta (B,L,D)
Rising early, take a short walk to a lookout close to our campsite to view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta away from the public viewing areas before heading off to Kata Tjuta for a walk through the "Valley of the Winds". Afterwards, you are off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for your second nights' private bush camp, complete with bush toilet and shower. This camp has stunning views over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Dinner around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingoes howling in the distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.

DAY 3 Kings Canyon – Alice Springs (B,L)
Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. We'll visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil ‘Garden of Eden’. Later we start making our way back to Alice Springs travelling on a typical outback dirt road. We'll drop you back at your accommodation early evening and usually all meet later for a bit of a night on the town (Alice seems like the big smoke after 3 days in the bush).

  • A really good tour that offers a variety of experiences and activities in different locations across the Northern Territory. Our Tour Guide could have been better not very interactive and quite patronising, he also turned ups an hour late on day one blaming vehicle issues but did not call us to tell us so we were up at 4am and stood outside our hotel for an hour wondering what was happening. Vehicle issues occurred again on the way home when he forgot to refuel and we broke down in the middle of the desert! No air con and completely isolated with minimal water. Even when we did get more fuel in the vehicle he then needed to bleed the fuel filter as running dry had let air in - not a great way to spend some of the day. Our biggest complaint was the lack of communication or information before the tour itself - what kit did we need? what would be provided? what facilities were there? If you do this tour then torches will be useful, as will fly nets, and drink containers that keep drinks cool.

  • Fantastic trip. Camping, sights, food, all were great. Tour guide Keiran was fantastic.

  • Not worth the money by any means! Not enough blankets, food was mediocre, over rated. Would definitely NOT recommend

  • One of the best things we've even done, great scenery, great company and great experiences - all round truly amazing!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • It was a great family holiday, the tour guide Nick was very entertaining and very knowledgeable of the sites we visited. It was a fantastic experience, sleeping under the stars!
