Day 1 – Alice Springs to Kata Tjuta and Uluru

DEFAULT PICK UP: Haven Backpacker Resort, 06:10am

Leaving Alice Springs, we make our way to an outback camel farm where you can choose to take a ride on one of their backs (own expense). From here it is off to Uluru (Ayers Rock) for lunch before making the journey to Kata Tjuta.

Get up close to this ancient geological formation during a hike through the beautiful Valley of the Winds. Your busy first day ends with an unforgettable desert sunset at Uluru. As the night grows darker, curl up in your permanent tent or enjoy sleeping in a swag (Aussie bedroll) and experience a night under the outback stars. (LD)

Day 2 – Uluru

An early start will be rewarded with a spectacular Uluru sunrise. While the morning is fresh enjoy an unguided walk around the base of Uluru before gaining an insight into the local Aboriginal culture from your guide. You will then have the opportunity to purchase Aboriginal arts and crafts at the Uluru Cultural Centre before finishing your tour at Ayers Rock Resort. (B)
