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.

Booking Terms and Conditions 

Customers Responsible Travel

The customer shall comply with all government (federal, state, and territory) conditions of entry into Australia and/or at the time of travel for tour and transport services.

In the event that a traveler needs to cancel unexpectedly due to visa restrictions, a medical condition, family reasons, or changes to regulations imposed by the government, the operator shall exercise discretion when applying cancellation policies in these circumstances. The operator reserves the right to withhold such a reasonable sum to cover administrative expenses and other losses, dependent on when notice of cancellation is given by the customer.

It was previously recommended by the Department of Health that commercial passenger vehicle drivers and passengers wear fitted face masks while in transit to minimise the spread of the virus. This is no longer mandatory but rather at the driver’s or traveler’s own discretion. Some remote regions have limited access to RAT tests, so multi-day travelers are still advised to bring some along.

In the unlikely event that a traveller must leave a tour midway after it has commenced or attempt to join a tour after departure, the operator is not required to reimburse any aspects of the tour that they did not participate in. As part of this, the traveler is responsible for any relocation expenses incurred from the point of departure to their nominated destination, which are the traveller’s responsibility and will not be reimbursed.

Note: Different cancellation conditions may apply if or when booked through third-party agents. Your travel consultant will advise if differences apply. Travelers are strongly advised to purchase personal cancellation insurance at the time of booking.

A “force majeure event” includes but is not limited to: acts of God; war; civil commotion; riot; blockade or embargo; fire; explosion; breakdown; union dispute; earthquake; epidemic, pandemic, or other health emergency; flood; windstorm or other extreme weather event; lack or failure of courses of supply; passage of any law, order, proclamation, regulation, ordinance, demand, requisition, or requirement; or any other act of any government authority, beyond the reasonable control of the parties, whether or not foreseeable, which would make it dangerous or not viable for a trip to commence or continue.

Acceptance of Risk

Australia is home to a wide range of dangerous animals, extreme weather conditions, and varied terrain. Experiencing these dangers while camping, hiking, or passing time outside may increase your personal risk. Safety is our number one priority, and our guides are highly trained to ensure passenger safety at all times. Get Lost Travel Pty Ltd. cannot accept responsibility for any loss, injury, or accident caused by passengers onboard our tours.

Travel Insurance

We recommend all guests have personal travel insurance, which should be taken out at the time of booking prior to tour departure. Your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident death, 24/7 medical expenses, and emergency repatriation, with a recommended minimum coverage of US$200,000 for each of the categories of cover.

We also strongly recommend it cover cancellation curtailment, COVID-19 cover, personal liability, loss of luggage, and personal effects. If you have travel insurance connected to your credit card or bank account, please ensure you have details of the participating insurer, the insurance policy number, and the emergency contact number with you rather than the bank’s name and credit card details.

Alcohol Policy

Alcohol is not permitted on board our vehicles. We reserve the right to refuse re-entry if passengers are overly intoxicated and pose a threat to other passengers, our driver, or our vehicle. We also reserve the right to advise at any time prior to departure and while in operation that alcohol is no longer permitted. The legal drinking age in Australia is 18 years old; a photo ID is required.

Child Policy (Age Requirements)

Our child and infant policy and pricing do vary depending on the trip; this is due to the diversity in our product range. All travellers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult or guardian.
