Tour Description

Day 1 We start our adventure travelling through the vineyards of the Clare Valley wine region, but soon enough we’re heading into the rugged Outback through the historic town of Melrose, gateway to the Flinders Ranges. We enjoy an easy stroll through the towering red sandstone cliffs in Alligator Gorge, which is sometimes bursting with wild flowers. We’ll then settle in the heart of the Southern Flinders Ranges for the night.

Day 2 Along the way to Coober Pedy – the Opal Capital of the World – you will notice the incredible changing landscapes. Wildlife, such as kangaroos, emus and eagles will scatter as the road trains thunder across a landscape that resembles Mars or the Moon. On a tour of an underground Opal Mine and Museum, you’ll learn about the history of Coober Pedy. A highlight for some is visiting Josephine’s Kangaroo Orphanage, where you can meet the rescued kangaroos and baby joeys and admire (or buy) Aboriginal art and didgeridoos. Tonight, we sleep like the locals do – underground, in bunkhouse accommodation.

Day 3 It’s a big day driving up the Stuart Highway, with several pitstops en-route. Watch the changing landscapes from Mulga woodlands, escarpments and nearby ranges. Our mission today is to reach the majestic Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) where we will camp for the night on an authentic station.

Day 4 We get up early to explore Watarrka (Kings Canyon), where you will need to stop to admire and photograph the massive sandstone walls, vast canyon floor and stunning gorges. On the Canyon Rim Walk (3-4 hours), you’ll experience the beautiful Garden of Eden and learn more about the local Aboriginal culture. After lunch, we begin our journey into Uluru (Ayers Rock). Nothing will prepare you for the sight of Uluru. We quickly set up camp before learning about the local Aboriginal History at the Uluru Kata-Tjuta Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Soon after we’ll be experiencing our first awe-inspiring Uluru sunset, taking time to absorb the beauty and majesty of this place.

Day 5 We start the day at dawn by taking a (4 hour) hike to the majestic Valley of the Winds in Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Be prepared to be blown away with the size of these ancient rock formations and the extraordinary views. Later, we relax back at our campground for a dip in the pool or join one of our Adrenalin Plus options, such as skydiving over Uluru.

Day 6 After devouring yet another scrumptious breakfast we will experience another glorious sunrise, we then walk around the base of Uluru. Hiking through the acacia woodlands and grassy clay pans, you’ll spot wildlife at waterholes, marvel at Uluru’s geological wonders and learn more about Aboriginal interpretations from your Culturally Accredited Groovy Guide. After lunch, we’ll hit the road to Alice Springs, arriving approximately at 6:30pm. You can also be dropped off at Ayers Rock Campground for your flight out of Ayers Rock.
