Overview
Australia’s Red Centre is the wild heart of the Aussie outback, but its vastness and remote location make it impossible to take in everything on a one day. With this multi-day tour, you explore farther afield and experience an unforgettable outback adventure. Camp out beneath the desert stars, trek to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and Kings Canyon, and watch sunrise and sunset over mystical Uluru.
What to Expect

Day 1: Alice Springs - Ayers Rock (L, D) 
After pickup from Alice Springs, arrive in Ayers Rock in time for lunch, then continue into Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park. 

In the afternoon, choose to either visit the Cultural Centre and Mutitjulu Waterhole with your guide; enjoy a self-guided hike along the Uluru Base Walk; or climb to the top of Uluru on a self-guided summit trek. 

Watch the sunset over Uluru, then transfer to the campsite and spend the night in a typical Aussie swag (bedroll) beneath the desert stars or a safari tent.

Day 2: Uluru Sunrise and Kata Tjuta - Kings Canyon (B, L, D) 
Start the day with a spectacular sunrise viewing at Uluru, then head to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) for a thrilling 3.5-mile (5.5-kilometer) hike through the Valley of the Winds. 

Spend the night at a campsite in Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon), including a traditional Aussie barbecue dinner.

Day 3: Kings Canyon and Mt Ebenezer - Alice Springs (B, L) 
Visit mighty Kings Canyon and hike around the canyon rim, stopping to admire the natural amphitheater, the Lost City, and the Garden of Eden.

Your tour ends back in Alice Springs.
