This small group tour showcases all that the Red Centre has to offer. Three days, three world-famous destinations (Uluru, Kings Canyon, and Kata Tjuta) explored in one tour.

Red Centre 3 day tour Departing from Alice Springs, we will head towards Ayers Rock, stopping off at the Mt. Connor (false Uluru) lookout for a view of this mighty red mountain and Curtin Springs for a toilet stop before arriving at our campground for lunch.

 After lunch, we head to the Red Center’s Aboriginal interpretive cultural center. We have a chance to learn about the cultural, ecological, historical, and geological significance of this very special national park. With anticipation and excitement growing, we make a short drive towards the base of Uluru as we begin to comprehend the sheer size and magnificence of the giant monolith, getting up close and personal to explore further.

Walking to Mutitjulu waterhole, we discover sacred rock art sites in family caves and hear the creation stories of Kuniya and Liru as we continue our base walk towards Kuniya Piti.  From here, we drive around sacred sites towards Kantju Gorge, where we envisage the highest waterfall in Central Australia (truly a spectacle to behold, even more so when raining), an elders’ cave, and the world’s oldest pantry.  After exploring the world’s most impressive rock up close and personal, we retreat for panoramic views to witness one of the most incredible sunsets on the planet, all while having dinner cooked for you, to feed those hungry eyes.
