What You Can Expect
Travel east from Yulara via Curtin Springs, an enormous family-owned cattle station that has been in operation for more than 60 years. Look into the distance to see the bulky form of Mount Conner (Attila) as your coach continues east to Erldunda. Stretch your legs during a rest stop at Mount Ebenezer Road House. You can also browse artworks made by local artists from the Imanpa (Aboriginal) community and purchase tea or other refreshments.
Then connect to the famous Stuart Highway, the principal north-south route through central Australia, and ride along a 124-mile (200-km) section of this key road to reach Alice Springs. View the impressive West MacDonnell Ranges, another example of this area's intriguing geological evolution. This 500-million-year-old mass of twisted quartzite stands as one of Central Australia's most dominant land forms, and is riddled with deep gorges and chasms.
Listen to informative and entertaining commentary provided by your driver as you travel through striking Outback landscapes. Learn about the geological history of the region, Australian desert flora and fauna, and some of the traditional customs and beliefs of the Aboriginal people who have inhabited this area for more than 20,000 years.
View groves of desert oaks, many of which are many hundreds of years old. These resilient trees survive in the harsh climate by sinking tap roots deep into the earth and remaining dormant until water is found.
You may be able to watch an onboard video about Australian wildlife. You can also keep an eye out for critters in the desert as you travel.
Please note: You may transfer coaches at the Kings Canyon junction before continuing to Alice Springs.
This was an excellent way to travel. The scenery was magnificent and the bus driver Tash very entertaining. The tour buses are very well presented and comfortable.
Whist this was just a shuttle bus from one-place to another, the driver provided an excellent commentary of the country-side we drove through. You can fly from Uluru to Alice Springs, but I recommend the shuttle! It's a great way to see what the centre of Australia is all about.
We thoroughly enjoy the drive on the bus from Ayers Rick to Alice Springs, we saw a lot of the landscape slog the way and the drivers were very informative, we got to see a Black Wedged tail eagle and the nest of this bird
Comfortable coach, comfort stops, interesting commentary and really illustrates how vast this area is.

Great driver, lots of interesting little tidbits of information given throughout the trip, two stops to break up the journey, comfortable coach.
Chaufförerna hos AAT Kings är oerhört kompetenta och rena rama turistguiderna. Väldigt roligt att åka med detta bolag.
The commentaries were insightful about the geology of Uluru and Alice Springs and the social and cultural habits of the traditional owners. The shopkeepers are friendly, and there appear (well, according to the coach commentaries) to be colourful stories about local residents.
Stayed a short time but manged to squeeze a lot in and enjoyed everything. Driver on the shuttle from Uluru to Alice informative and the scenery was great.
