Description

The remote town of Yulara is a convenient start point for visitors setting off to the explore the sensational range of natural wonders the Red Centre has to offer.
The ancient rock formations of Kata Tjuta (also known as The Olgas) create an amazing landscape of spectacular domes and canyons.
An iconic image of outback Australia and a sacred site for the local Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people, Uluru’s remarkable colour changes are a wonder to behold. Visit the lesser-explored region of the West MacDonnell Ranges and compare the ever changing landscapes of the Red Centre.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Yulara and Uluru (Ayers Rock)**
After you land in this Red Centre of the country, it’s on to the boulder-strewn landscape of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Wandering through the site’s gullies and crevices, you’ll learn a little about the area’s geological and ecological significance from your guide. The perfect end to a remarkable day is awaiting you back at camp, as you enjoy a delicious spread of food under the stars.

Day 2: Uluru Sunrise**
There’s no better way to start today than an early morning walk around the world’s biggest rock. With the cool night air still lingering and day-trippers not yet arrived, this is Uluru at its most atmospheric. It might be hard to believe when gazing up this 600 million year old monolith from the ground, but the bulk of this rock is believed to lie below the surface. A local indigenous guide will explain a little about the creation-time stories surrounding the area during a guided interpretive cultural walk. There’ll be time to see the traditional arts and crafts on display at the nearby Cultural Centre before travelling to our campsite in Watarrka National Park.

Note: Total driving time today is around three and a half hours. Total walking time is approximately two hours.

Day 3: Kings Canyon Rim Walk**
After breakfast, get your hiking shoes on and head out to explore the impressive formations of Kings Canyon. You’ll be left breathless by the sheer beauty of the canyon, as you trek through the Amphitheatre, the Lost City, the lush and ancient Garden of Eden and the North and South Walls. Lunch is a welcome prospect, and after you’ve relaxed for a little while we’ll head back to Alice Springs where we will stay tonight before heading out to the West Macdonnell Ranges in the morning.

Day 4: Western MacDonnell Ranges**
Watch the Australian wilds waking up on a morning drive in The West MacDonnell Ranges. We’ll follow the Waterhole trail through Ormiston Pound to Ormiston Gorge – a tranquil little rock pool surrounded by ochre-coloured rock walls and white-trunked eucalypts. Black-footed rock wallabies often pop down here for a drink, so keep those peepers peeled. Next up is Ellery Creek, where there’s the chance to cool off with a dip. Following lunch, it’s on to Simpsons Gap. Known as Rungutjirpa to the Arrernte people, this deep gorge, often partly filled with water, is associated with goanna, eagle and rock wallaby dreamings. See the colours of the ranges change as the sun starts its descent.

The total driving time will be about half an hour, and you will walk up to 5km.
