      Our travellers often combine this trip with some of these trips:


      Day 1: Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

      For those electing to start in Alice Springs, you will be collected from your accommodation (or nearest pick up point) for the drive to one of Australia’s most famous icons – Uluru.
      Guests starting at Ayers Rock Resort will join the group and we all then travel the short distance to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The afternoon is dedicated to exploring this extraordinary monolith starting with an interpretive walk led by your guide, who will explain the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). You will also learn about the art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people, and visit the acclaimed Cultural Centre where you can explore the displays and learn of the flora and fauna unique to this area.
      Experience the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset complete with sparkling wine and nibbles and plenty of photo opportunities. This is a great time to kick back and contemplate the vastness of the desert while getting to know your fellow travellers.
      Afterwards settle in at our private camp, complete with our signature Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.

      Day 2: Uluru and Kata Tjuta

      Afterwards, we’re off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for our second nights’ remote private bush camp, complete with flushing bush toilets and hot showers. With nobody else for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Dinner around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingo’s howling in the distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.

      Day 3: Watarrka (Kings Canyon)

      Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. We will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil ‘Garden of Eden’.
      Afterward we travel a short distance to enjoy a well-earned lunch followed by a short 30 minute drive to a unique and inspiring Aboriginal cultural experience. After nearly 5 years of operation Karkke has fast become a must do cultural immersion including a “welcome to country”, bush tucker, bush stories and a greater overal appreciation and understanding of the worlds longest surviving culture.
      Later we return to Yulara to our camp once again, all the while the stars glistening above keeping us company and curious, the shear magnitude of the Central Australian night sky has to be seen and contemplated.
