What You Will See
Everyone knows Uluru, that stands 348 metres high and stretches over 10 km in circumference, but many don’t know the other treasures of the Red Centre including Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park and the West Macdonnell Ranges. We’ll take you to them all and you’ll leave with a newfound appreciation for the treasures of the Outback. Watarrka National Park covers 71,000 hectares.
Alice Springs to Kata Tjuta & Uluru Sunset
Starting in Alice Springs, we continue on to the permanent campsite at Yulara for lunch before embarking to explore the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta. Here, we get up close to this ancient geological formation during an afternoon hike. The perfect end to a remarkable day is watching the Rock’s rich colours change against a blazing Red Centre sunset
Uluru to Kings Canyon
Enjoy a glorious sunrise with a walk around the base of Uluru. Deepen your understanding of the land and the Mala people during a walk with your tour guide. There’s an opportunity to purchase Aboriginal arts and crafts at the Cultural Centre before travelling to our exclusive campsite in Watarrka National Park. Set in the Watarraka National Park, Kings Canyon is 306km from Ayers Rock Resort.
Kings Canyon to Alice Springs
Admire and explore the towering walls and crevices of Watarrka National Park. The photo opportunities are endless in Kings Canyon so be sure to bring your camera. At the end of the trek, it’s time to refuel with a bite to eat before making the journey back to the remote centre of Alice Springs. Stop at Kings Creek Station, a working cattle/camel station and, why not try their famous camel burger! Followed by a brief stop at Angus Downs.
