Description

Pushed for time? Strapped for cash? This trip reveal’s the Outback’s biggest drawcards in minimum time, at a minimum cost. See the region’s best-known attractions in just three days, beginning in Alice Springs. Get to know Uluru guided or on your own, navigate the boulder-strewn landscape of Kata Tjuta on a walk through the Valley of the Winds and discover lost cities and a Garden of Eden on the hike around Kings Canyon. The Outback’s never been so accessible.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Alice Springs – Uluru**
Meet your group and guide in bright and early and hit the road for Australia’s legendary Outback. Stop at an Outback roadhouse for an optional breakfast (at your own expense), then it’s back on the road for the drive to Yulara, stopping off along the way for views of Mt Connor and various salt lakes. After lunch, jump back in the vehicle and travel into Uluru National Park. Grab a coffee and check out the Cultural Centre, then walk over to the main attraction – Uluru. Depending on how active you’re feeling, you can choose to do an optional ten-kilometre walk around the base of Uluru. No two angles of the sacred monolith are the same and its sheer size will leave you gobsmacked. If you’d rather do a shorter walk, follow the ‘Mala Walk’ signs for a stroll to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. In the evening, watch a spectacular Uluru sunset while enjoying some tasty snacks. Once the sun has gone down, drive to tonight’s campsite for a hot shower and hearty dinner. Roll out your swag (protected bedroll) and get comfortable under the stars.

Day 2: Uluru – Kings Canyon**

The walk can be challenging, but you’re rewarded with a spectacular perspective on mind-blowing rock formations. Return to camp for lunch. In the afternoon, drive to a remote bush camp in Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) and freshen up with a hot shower. Tonight’s dinner will be an authentic Outback barbecue.

Enter a natural amphitheatre, discover the Lost City, cool off under the shade of the Garden of Eden’s leafy palm trees and admire panoramic views from the North and South Walls. After lunch, make tracks back to Alice Springs with a few leg-stretches on the way, before pulling into Alice in the early evening.
