Full description
Day one: Yulara and Uluru
This afternoon, set out to the boulder-strewn landscape of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Wander through the site’s gullies and crevices and learn a little about the area’s geological and ecological significance from your guide. Journey back to camp as the sun starts to set, arriving in time for a very special 1,000-star dinner. The total driving time is around 1 hour and the total walking time is around 1 hour.

Day two: Uluru Sunrise
An early start this morning is rewarded with an Uluru sunrise. While the morning is fresh, enjoy a walk around the base of the rock. Get insights into the land and the local Mala people on an interpretive cultural walk with an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Guide. Once you have had lunch, perhaps purchase some art and craft of the First Peoples of Australia at the Uluru Cultural Centre. Travel onto the exclusive campsite within Watarrka National Park at Kings Canyon, where the group will eat and sleep for the night. The total driving time is around 3.5 hours and the total walking time is approximately 2 hours or up to 4 if you do the full 8.5km base walk.

Day three: Kings Canyon Rim Walk
While Kings Canyon is only one of the many attractions within Watarrka National Park, it is so impressive that more people know about it than the park. After a quick breakfast, venture into the canyon and start the Rim Walk. Beginning in the vast natural amphitheater, where you are free to test out the acoustics, find the Lost City and descend down into the fern-shaded rock pools of the Garden of Eden. A visit to the imposing North and South Walls is another must see before lunch. Then, drive on to Alice Springs, a relative metropolis in these surroundings, for goodbyes. The total driving time is around 5 hours and the total walking time is around 3 three hours.
