DAY 1
Magnificent Uluru

Feel the stirring of something bigger than you as you arrive in Ayers Rock Resort

Feel the stirring of something bigger than you as you arrive in Ayers Rock Resort, your launchpad to Australia’s fiery heart in the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. This afternoon, travelling to Uluru as the day fades, the outback sun bids a fiery farewell. This is the perfect backdrop for sparkling sundowners, while overlooking Uluru.

DAY 2
Desert Awakenings Sunrise at Uluru

Under the cover of darkness, wander through 50,000 magical handcrafted frosted glass spheres of light...

Experience the tranquillity of the pre-dawn land under a canopy of stars. Watch the amazing transformation of colours and life as the desert awakens with Uluru and Kata Tjuta as your backdrop. Once the sun is up, enjoy a guided tour at the base of Uluru visiting the Mutitjulu waterhole.

Your guide will explain some of the rock paintings and stories from the creation period as told by the Anangu people. This Desert Awakenings tour is a much sought after experience that delivers insight into the ancient landscape, ecology, culture, heritage, and history of what is now regarded as Australia’s spiritual heartland.

DAY 3
Kings Canyon

Travel across desert landscapes stopping at Kings Creek Station & visit to the Wanmarra Aboriginal Community...

Collect your car and leave Uluru behind as you travel across desert landscapes stopping at Kings Creek Station, a vast farming property, for lunch. The flickering glow of this evening’s fire under the canopy of a starry southern hemisphere sky is the perfect accompaniment to your Under a Desert Moon Local Dining Experience.

Kings Canyon
DAY 4
Explore the Canyon

Enjoy a Rim walk past the domed ‘Lost City' and down into the luscious ‘Garden of Eden'

Gaze across the deep chasm at the edge of Kings Canyon as you embark on a sunrise 6km rim walk past the domed ‘Lost City’ and down into the luscious ‘Garden of Eden’. The Rim Walk will take you on a 6 kilometre circuit transcending down into the Garden of Eden and back to the top to wonder at the 360 views. Depending on what pace you take to absorb the humbling scenery, the walk can take around 3-4 hours.

The best time to take on this experience is during sunrise as the sun slowly reflections onto the sandstone turning a stunning array of oranges and reds.

DAY 5
Onto Alice

Situated in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs is surrounded by gorges and stark desert plains - it's certainly remote.

It’s Australia’s Oasis, the capital of the Outback and the most romantic country town in the world. It’s where the Arrernte Aboriginal tribal group have lived for 20,000 years and where pioneer men and women gave “tough” a new meaning.

Immerse yourself this evening against the backdrop of the Outback, enjoying an open-air dinner around a campfire with your local hosts, as the Milky Way lights up the sky.

DAY 6
West MacDonnell National Park

West MacDonnell chasms and gorges has its own unique character and scenery

Easily accessed from Alice Springs, each of the West MacDonnell chasms and gorges has its own unique character and scenery. Drive, or jump on a bike and ride along the 17 kilometre cycle path, to Simpsons Gap to see the permanent waterhole and spot rock wallabies that live in the Gap’s rocky ridges.

Photograph Standley Chasm at midday when it lights up in fiery colours. Find refreshing relief from the heat of the day at the picturesque swimming holes in Ellery Creek Big Hole, Ormiston Gorge, Glen Helen Gorge and Redbank Gorge.
