Participants should have a good to moderate fitness level for this tour and be aware that walks often take place over uneven ground. Toilets and showers are a short walk from your campsite and you will have to participate in assisting the guide with meals and cleaning up on occasion. Customers need to prepare for hot to very hot temperatures in summer and temperatures sometimes below zero of a night time in winter.
At pick up, please be dressed in comfortable walking clothing and footwear, have a water bottle, hat and sunscreen in easy reach.
We recommend guests arrive on the Jetstar or Virgin Australia flights into Ayers Rock. Clients joining at Ayers Rock airport or resort will do so after lunch and therefore need to have had lunch prior to pick up as we will be travelling straight to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to start the afternoon’s sightseeing. We cannot guarantee you will be able to join the tour should your flight not arrive as scheduled. Please ensure all relevant flight details are provided at the time of booking and you have travel insurance. Those arriving into AYQ in the morning can catch the free shuttle bus to Ayers Rock Resort for pick up from Outback Pioneer. Scheduled onward travel ex Alice Springs must occur the day after the tour finishes.
Please refer to Extras section for details on National Park fees and optional additional payments
Travel Insurance is highly recommended.
Due to limited space on the vehicle, please restrict luggage to a day pack and one soft overnight bag/backpack (maximum 10kg). Excess luggage should be stored at your Alice Springs accommodation. If commencing at Ayers Rock please ensure you have an overnight bag/backpack packed with the items you require for the three days, as your main luggage will be stored in the vehicle and not accessible during the tour.
Day 1 : Alice Springs to Uluru
It’s an early rise if you are joining us in Alice Springs where you will make the journey to Ayers Rock where we will meet our fellow travellers joining us there. This afternoon embark on an interpretive base walk of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and do not climb it). The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset. After dinner, some stories and stargazing, it’s time for a good night’s rest at our private campsite before another active day tomorrow. *Lunch on Day 1 is only included for passengers beginning their tour in Alice Springs. Passengers starting in Ayers Rock will need to have eaten prior to pick up.
Meal(s) included : Lunch, Dinner
Day 2 : Uluru to Kings Creek Station via Kata Tjuta
Your guide will wake you bright and early to experience a mesmerising Uluru sunrise, early mornings being such a magical time in the desert. Then it’s a short drive to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), an Aboriginal word for “many heads”, to explore its domes of which there are 36 in total. Pull on your hiking boots and take the Valley of the Winds walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness. After lunch, it’s farewell to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park as we travel to Kings Creek Station to spend the night at our private camp.
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3 : Kings Creek Station to Alice Springs via Kings Canyon
This morning we enter the Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park, home of a mighty chasm with sheer red rock faces which soar over 100 metres above lush palm forests. The rim of Kings Canyon is a 6km round trip walk and you will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and tranquil Garden of Eden. After our final meal together we begin our journey back to Alice Springs arriving in the early evening.
