What You Can Expect
Travel from Alice Springs on your adventure to the 'Red Centre,' visiting the Outback Camel Farm on the way. Hear the tale of how camels arrived in Australia to serve as transport for construction and colonization. Take a short camel ride through the bush (own expense), before traveling to the permanent campsite at Ayers Rock Resort. Alternatively, you'll be picked up from the Ayers Rock airport or Desert Gardens Hotel.
Overnight: permanent campsite at Ayers Rock Resort
Day 2: Uluru – Kings Canyon Region (B, L, D)
It's an early rise for an exciting morning with breathtaking views of the sunrise at Uluru. Then, wander the base of Uluru with a local Aboriginal guide and discover the hidden caves and ancient rock paintings depicting stories from the Dreamtime. You will then be given the opportunity to purchase Aboriginal arts and crafts at the Cultural Center before traveling to the exclusive campsite within Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon).
Day 3: Kings Canyon – Alice Springs (B, L)
Discover the Lost City and Garden of Eden on a 4.3-mile (7-km) hike along the rim of Kings Canyon. See spectacular gorges with towering sandstone cliffs and endless views over the countryside. Finish up with a refreshing swim in a waterhole before traveling back to Kings Creek Station for lunch and then onto Alice Springs where your tour ends.
Really enjoyed this tour. This was one of the highlights of my Aus. travel. The air conditioned coach was newer than most similar tour buses and comfortable which was just great because it's extremely hot in the outback. The driver/guide was very affable and knowledgeable and passengers were an international mix from UK, Germany, S.Africa, Norway, S.Korea and all got on very well. The camping is really glamping with proper beds however, If you wanted to sleep under the stars I think that could be accommodated. The early mornings start at 4.30-5.00am because it is the coolest time of the day to start the hikes around Uluru and Kings Canyon. If you do not feel up to long walks there are options to take the shorter routes so the trip does cater for all fitness types. All good, thanks
A fabulous tour and definitely a highlight of our whole trip to Australia! Ross was a great tour leader, he took everything at a great pace, patient and was extremely knowledgeable. I love that he has only just started this job and it definitely was the right career change! A huge thank you to him.
It would be good to have clearer instructions in advance from Viator about baggage limitations especially if you are joining the tour in Ayres Rock and therefore travelling with a lot of luggage and no where to store it apart from on the bus. It seems to be very strict but after contacting the ground handler directly, this wasn't a problem and we were allowed our 2 large suitcases.
Fantastic tour - excellent guide, excellent sites, great group, everything very good
Excellent tour - our guide was Teagan with Brooke under training. Teagan was one of the best guides we've ever had and made the trip interesting and informative. We loved hearing about her life experiences which enhanced our experience and understanding of the culture. Highly recommended despite having to get up at 4am for the walks!
this was the best tour ever, our guide " Keith" was full of knowledge, the camping facility was the best, no crawling into a tent but walking into a nice little cabin with 2 single beds with blankets, pillows and towels waiting for us. The food was great. If you want to learn and discover what is central Australia this is the tour you need to take, from Uluru to Kings Canyon and everything in between, you wont regret any minutes. Everything was very well organise, good management of our time. No regret. I Highly recommended this tour.
Very well organised tour, food wasn't great but ok. Tents were great, some mattrasses need replaceing as the springs have gone. Sleeping in swags was great.
The trip was very enjoyable and well organised. Our guide Matt was very knowledgeable , unfortunately on our way back to Alice Springs our bus got stuck in some sand and we were transferred onto another bus and were several hours late back in Alice Springs.
Excellent tour guide (Keith) who was enthusiastic, entertaining and very knowledgable; providing many interesting facts and talking to us about interesting features, such as plants that have functions in the environment you'd never know about. The food was excellent and exceeded expectations for this kind of tour. The accomodation/sites were exactly what I was hoping for considering it was a camping trip.
