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.

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.
