                                                                                                     – Safari Tent $1095 p/P from April 2024 AUD$ 1150

 

This small group adventure encompasses the very best the Red Centre has to offer.

Spend three days, exploring three iconic locations (Uluru, Kings Canyon & Kata Tjuta) all wrapped up in one

tour. There is a very good reason why Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is included on the UNESCO World

Heritage List. The park was first added to the list in 1987, when the international community recognised its

spectacular geological formations, rare plants and animals, and outstanding natural beauty. Your expert

local guide will uncover some of the incredible secrets the Red Centre has to offer with guided

commentary, stories, and hidden gems that really bring this place to life.

 

(3 Day PERMANENT TENT TOUR is 1095$ regular)

We have comfortable twin pop-up safari tents providing a little more comfort, privacy, and security, or you

can try out a traditional swag experience (canvas-covered bedroll)

 

Day 1: Alice Springs to Uluru / Ayers Rock

 

Departing from either Alice Springs or Yulara (Uluru Airport) we head towards Ayers Rock stopping off at Mt

Connor (false Uluru) lookout for a view of this mighty red mountain and Curtin Springs for a toilet stop before

arriving at our campground for lunch. After lunch, we head to the Red Centre’s Aboriginal interpretive

cultural centre. We have a chance to learn about the cultural, ecological, historical, and geological

significance of this very special national park. With the anticipation and excitement growing we make a

short drive towards the base of Uluru as we begin to comprehend the sheer size and magnificence of the

giant monolith, getting up close and personal to explore further. Walking to Mutitjulu waterhole we discover

sacred rock art sites in family caves and hear the creation stories of Kuniya and Liru as we continue our

base walk towards Kuniya Piti. From here we drive around sacred sites towards Kantju Gorge where we

envisage the highest waterfall in Central Australia, (truly a spectacle to behold, even more so when raining)

an elders’ cave, and the world’s oldest pantry. After exploring the world’s most impressive rock up close

and personal, we retreat for panoramic views to witness one of the most incredible sunsets on the planet,

all whilst having dinner cooked for you, to feed those hungry eyes.
