This was the very first trip that Adventure Tours offered right from the beginning - so you know that it’s legit. Today it’s even better than ever! Come with us as we show you the heart of the Red Centre - Uluru. What’s not to love about a famous Aussie landmark in the beautiful setting sun with a glass of sparkling wine in your hand? You’ll also get the chance to climb aboard a camel’s back for a ride at an outback camel farm before you curl up for the night under the stars in a swag (Aussie bedroll). Like culture? So do we! We’ll take you on a cultural walk around the base of the rock with a local indigenous guide. You’ll also hike around King’s Canyon and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) - no wonder this is our most popular trip!

Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to see more Aboriginal arts and crafts at the Cultural Centre before we travel to our exclusive campsite within the Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) where we sleep for the night.
