Day 1 : Alice Springs to Ayers Rock (via the Kata-Tjuta)

Join our professional tour guides and see the real outback.

6AM (approx)

Your guide will collect you from outside your Alice Springs accommodation and head to our first stop at Erldunda (home of the Emu) for a buffet breakfast.

11:45AM

Upon arrival at Ayers Rock Resort, we provide you with a freshly made packed lunch to eat on the drive to the world heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Kata Tjuta

We travel to Kata Tjuta (previously known at the Olgas) for the first walk of the day into Walpa Gorge.

Marvel at the domes of Kata Tjuta on your first walk of the day, while taking in sweeping views of the open plains on the return walk.

Aboriginal Cultural Centre

Our group then visits the Aboriginal Cultural Centre, where you will have time to learn about the local Pitjantjatjara people and buy some souvenirs.

The Cultural Centre was built with 90,000 mud bricks with the help of the local Anangu people. It is built on a sacred site and has very special meaning to the local Anangu people.

Uluru – Mala Walk

We then head to the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock), which is next to the entrance to the Uluru climb. From here, your tour guide will take you on a guided Mala Walk.

The Mala Walk follows the north-west side of Uluru, where there are many fine examples of Anangu rock art, and you can experience the wonder of the sheer vertical walls. Along the way, your guide will tell stories of the Anangu People.

Uluru – Mutitjulu Waterhole

Your coach will transport you to the back section of Uluru, where we start a second guided walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole.

Your guide will take you along a short track to the waterhole – home of an ancestral water snake called Wanampi, sharing stories of local traditions and explain how the Anangu people traditionally used the waterhole for hunting. The caves containing rock art were used in the past by the Anangu people, whose ancestors are still alive today.

SUNSET BBQ

This is an unmissable Australian experience and will be one you never forget.

Take in a breathtaking Uluru sunset with a glass of bubbly (or BYO beer) and a delicious Aussie BBQ dinner.

AFTER SUNSET

Unpack your bag for a comfortable night at the luxury resort, Sails in the Desert. Past guests refer to the friendly service and spacious, comfortable rooms when leaving a five-star rating.

Day 2 : Ayers Rock to Ayers Rock (via Kings Canyon)

4AM/5AM

AAT Kings pick you up from Sails in the Desert at approximately 4 am (Oct-Mar) or 5 am (Apr-Sep) so you can experience the majesty of a red centre sunrise for yourself.

Welcome to Kings Canyon

You’ll get a true sense of the remoteness of outback Australia as you travel to Kings Creek Station. Watch as the local wildlife wakes for the day and keep an eye out for dromedary camels, kangaroos, brumbies and dingoes.

Kings Creek Station

This cattle and camel station covers 1,800 square kilometres. Relax in the café where you’ll be treated to a cooked breakfast. Their coffee is said to be the best in the Territory!

Kings Canyon

Located in the heart of Watarrka National Park, Kings Canyon lies in an ancient Australian landscape that is sacred ground for the Ulpanyali and Lilla people.

Rim Walk

The six-kilometre Rim Walk is a once in a lifetime experience. Climb up a 100-metre cliff face and walk around the rim of the canyon. Marvel at impressive views of sandstone walls, grottos, chasms and cliffs.

The Garden of Eden

This spot is a tropical oasis with a natural spring waterhole that is surrounded by lush exotic plant life.

You’ll come across a natural spring waterhole surrounded by local and exotic plants and trees such as gums, bonsai looking trees and enormous prehistoric ferns, creating a truly unique landscape.

Creek Bed Walk

The Creek Bed Walk is ideal if you’re interested in something more relaxing. After leisurely taking in the sights, you’ll set off on a two-kilometre stroll along the creek bed that leads to views of the impressive canyon rim.

Kings Canyon Resort

Now we’re off to Kings Canyon Resort – an oasis in the outback!

Treat yourself to lunch (own expense). To see Kings Canyon from above, take an optional scenic helicopter flight (creek bed walkers only), or bring your swimmers if you’d like to take a dip in the resort’s pool.

Scenic Return Journey

Enjoy amazing outback scenery as we head back to Ayers Rock Resort. Guests are returned to their accommodation at approximately 5:30 pm.
