Day 1 Alice Springs – Watarrka NP (Kings Canyon)
Depart Alice Springs and head towards Kings Creek Station, Australia’s largest exporter of wild camels and the camp site for tonight. Hike Watarrka (Kings Canyon) to experience the fantastic views of the gorge, huge sandstone walls and an immense canyon floor. Here, trek through the Garden of Eden and learn about the Aboriginal history and culture of the area. Back at the campground there is time for you to swim in the pool or take up on any of the Adrenalin Plus Options (extra cost) they have on offer.
Day 2 Kings Canyon – Uluru (Ayers Rock)
Today head for Uluru. Nothing really prepares you for The Rock – it’s awesome! After lunch visit the Cultural Centre to learn about the Aboriginal people of the region and walk around the base of Uluru. Complete your first day with a spectacular sunset over Uluru. Tonight, camp at the Ayers Rock Resort Campground in comfy swags under the desert stars, your home for the next two nights.
Day 3 Uluru (Ayers Rock) – Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)
A fantastic Uluru sunrise and breakfast, before hiking Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and the majestic Valley of the Winds with its incredibly ancient rock formations before returning to the campsite for relaxing afternoon and another Uluru sunset.
Day 4 Uluru (Ayers Rock) – Coober Pedy
Today, cruise to Coober Pedy, opal capital of the world. Incredible changing landscape, kangaroos, emus, eagles and road trains all unfold before you and a view of the striking sandstone colors of the Breakaways on the way. On arrival visit the local kangaroo orphanage and later enjoy dinner, lots of stories and an overnight stay in an underground bunkhouse.
Day 5 Coober Pedy – Flinders Ranges
Spend the morning in Coober Pedy and take a tour of the town and an opal mine. You will have the opportunity to “noodle” for opals and visit an opal shop or any of the other underground attractions.
