Day 1 – Alice Springs to Kata Tjuta and Uluru (Ayers Rock)

Say a quick G’day to Alice, then board a bus for a journey into the Red Centre. First stop for the day is a working camel farm. Here you’ll have the chance to hop atop one of these iconic Arabian creatures for a glimpse of how Australia would have looked through the eyes of early explorers. Yep, much of Australia’s interior was first chartered with the use of camels. Enjoy lunch, then drive on to the giant red rock domes of Kata Tjuta. Late afternoon we head to Uluru, where dinner, sunset and a glass of bubbles await.

For passengers joining the tour at Yulara you will meet your group after lunch and drive on to the giant red rock domes of Kata Tjuta. Late afternoon we head to Uluru (Ayers Rock), where dinner, sunset and a glass of bubbles await. Tonight you can sleep in a permanent tent or a swag (Aussie bedroll) under the stars.

Rise and shine folks, you won’t want to miss this sunrise. After watching the world’s biggest rock gain its colour, set out for a walk around its base. When you get back there’ll be the opportunity to learn about Uluru’s local legendry on a cultural interpretative walk led by an indigenous guide. You might also want to check out the traditional arts and crafts on display in the on-site Cultural Centre. Tonight we camp out in Watarrka National Park – in an exclusive campsite, no less.

Day 3 – Kings Canyon Rim Walk

If one were to build a canyon fit for a king, Kings Canyon would be it. As Ernest Giles, the first European to enter the place asserted, if Kings were transported to any civilized land its ‘springs, glens, gorges, ferns, zamias and flowers would charm the eyes and hearts of toil-worn men who are condemned to live and die in crowded towns.’ During your time here we’ll get you to the Amphitheatre, the Lost City, the Garden of Eden and the North and South walls. Then it’s on to Erldunda for another night’s camping.

Note: Total driving time today is around three hours. Total walking time is approximately two and half hours hour.

Day 4 – Coober Pedy

Southbound we go, over the state border and into South Australia. Lunch today is in the tiny town of Marla – population 72 – and then it’s on to Coober Pedy. While outwardly a little nondescript, this dusty desert outpost is the world’s opal capital. It’s also where Max Max: Beyond Thunderdome was filmed. Cool. Due to the region’s intense heat, most of the town here is underground. You’ll be taken through the main attractions on a guided tour and then meet the world’s cutest orphans at Josephine’s Gallery and Kangaroo Orphanage. In keeping with the local way of doing things, we’ll be spending tonight underground. Also cool. And cooling.

Note: Total driving time today is around four and a half hours. Total walking time is approximately half an hour.

Day 5 – Quorn

The populations just keep getting smaller as we make our way south along the Sturt Highway: Glendambo, the day’s first stop, has 30 residents (and 22,500 sheep). Central Australia’s salt lakes make for another interesting pass-by, as does the military weapons testing site of Woomera. We’re not allowed to visit here – presumably because it harbours top-secret military hardware or something – but this is your best chance of seeing Australia launch a satellite. Following lunch, we arrive in Port Augusta and carry on over the Pichi Richi Pass into Quorn, a sweet little historical railway township at the entrance to Richman Valley.

Note: Total driving time today is around six hours. Total walking time is approximately half an hour.

Dormitory (1 night)

Day 6 – Adelaide

Get the day underway with a morning hike up the Flinders Ranges. Roos, wallabies, emus, goannas, wedge-tailed eagles and more call these Ranges home, so keep your eyes peeled and be vewy, vewy quiet… The final leg of the journey rolls through the lush, rolling hills of Clare Valley. This is wine country. And it’s mighty pretty. The adventure wraps up on arrival in Adelaide.

Note: Total driving time today is around three and a half hours. Total walking time is approximately two hours.
