Experience the magic of the Australian Outback in this three day Uluru Adventure.
Want to see the Red Centre’s greatest natural attractions on a 3 day Uluru Adventure? Easy. Jump on this trip, and you’ll get to admire Uluru at sunrise and sunset. Explore the natural wonders of Kings Canyon: the Lost City, Amphitheatre, Garden of Eden, and North and South Walls. And weave through the gigantic boulders and gullies of Kata Tjuta. Experience the heart of the Red Center with the best guides in the business. Who know the culture, people, and Outback like the back of their hand. Spend your days gaining a deeper understanding of the spiritual importance of Uluru and its surrounds, and your nights camping on Australia’s red earth and dining under the stars.
Meet your leader and fellow travelers at the Alice Springs pick-up point this morning and set off to explore the Red Centre. Whereas Uluru emerges from the earth as one giant boulder form, Kata Tjuta pops up as 36 different domes, and you’ll get to know the site pretty well on an afternoon hike following lunch. As evening begins, enjoy some tasty snacks as the sun sets over Uluru, casting incredible colors. The perfect end to a remarkable day is awaiting you back at camp, as you enjoy a delicious spread of food with your group. If the weather permits, sit outside under the stars.
Meet your guide at the Stay At Alice Springs Hotel (formerly Aurora Alice Springs) this morning. You will be picked up at 6 a.m., so please make sure you arrive at least 10 minutes early. See ‘Joining Point’ instructions in ‘Essential Trip Information’ for more details.

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, gaining insights into the land and the local Mala people on an interpretive cultural walk with an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Guide. Once you’ve had lunch, perhaps purchase some art and craft from the First Peoples of Australia, at the Uluru Cultural Centre. Travel onto the exclusive campsite within Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon), where the group will eat and sleep for the night.
Note: The total driving time today is around three and a half hours. Total walking time is approximately two hours (or up to four if you do the full 8.5-kilometer base walk).

Uluru is considered a living cultural landscape and home to the spirits of the ancestors, making it a sacred place for the Anangu people. The Anangu people have dissuaded visitors from climbing Uluru for decades; as traditional owners of the land, they feel a deep responsibility for everyone who travels to the area. In 1998, we were among the first tour operators to stop climbing Uluru. The Australian Adventure Group is proud to be involved with local communities in Uluru and to have an ongoing commitment to providing employment for the Anangu people. You show respect when you choose not to climb Uluru but walk with Anangu throughout the area and share their stories instead.
The main attraction of Watarrka is undoubtedly Kings Canyon, a humungous gorge enclosed by sheer rock walls hundreds of meters high. Offering a welcome escape from the dry desert heat, this site’s deep gullies and hidden rockpools provide shelter to more than 600 species of native plants and animals. Your guide will point these out on a guided trek that takes in the canyon’s most famous sites: the Lost City, Garden of Eden, Amphitheatre, and North and South Walls. Then it’s lunch, rest, and back to Alice for farewells.
The total driving time today is around 5 hours. Total walking time is approximately 3 hours. For the Kings Canyon Rim Walk, it is a requirement that you have a minimum of three liters of water with you. Please consider bringing your own refillable water bottles.
