Day 2: Uluṟu Sunrise & Kata Tjuṯa – Uluṟu Base Tour & Sunset – Barbecue Dinner

Rise early to watch the gorgeous sunrise at Uluru then travel to the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). On the way enjoy panoramic views of the southern side of Kata Tjuta before arriving at the base of Walpa Gorge. Spend time exploring the gorge and the unusual conglomerate rock formations. The walking trail through Walpa Gorge follows the natural creek bed between two of the tallest domes of Kata Tjuta.

This afternoon join your guide for a drive around the base of Uluru then travel to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Here view Aboriginal rock art and learn about the area as your Driver Guide points out native flora and fauna and explains the history of Uluru. After a visit to the cultural centre you’ll head to the Uluru sunset viewing area. Witness the striking colour changes of Uluru, while enjoying sparkling wine and nibbles. Travel to our exclusive venue to enjoy our delicious award-winning barbecue dinner and stargazing (weather permitting). Enjoy sparkling wine on arrival and dine on a meal of steak, lamb sausages, skewered chicken, garlic prawns and a selection of fresh salads and a tasty dessert. All accompanied by a selection of wines, beers and soft drinks. (D)

Day 3: Kings Canyon – Alice Springs

Rise early for your drive through sand hill country towards Kings Canyon, stopping for a breakfast at Kings Creek Station. Climb to the rim of the canyon for marvellous views of Watarrka National Park (for those with a good level of fitness). Alternatively, enjoy a more leisurely 1.5 hour walk along the boulder strewn creek bed. This afternoon travel on to Alice Springs. (B)


Note: During the hotter months of the year where temperatures can reach and exceed 36° C or 97° F, the Watarrka National Park Rangers strongly advise that visitors do not take part in the Kings Canyon Rim Climb.  In this drier desert climate, heat exhaustion, over these hotter months, is a very high possibility and a danger in such remote regions.  To ensure the safety and enjoyment of our clients we offer a guided walk along the Kings Canyon creek-bed as a suitable alternative on such days.
