ITINERARY

Why we love this trip
• This trips provides you with the best guides in the business who know the Australian outback like the back of their hand
• Wander through the iconic domes of Kata Tjuta, and gaze in awe at the sacred rock of Uluru
• Dine under the stars and camp within privately owned sites on the red earth of the outback
• Hike through natural amphitheatres, rocky chasms and lush oases in Kings Canyon
• Traverse the immense landscape of the West MacDonnell Ranges and keep an eye out for an abundance of wildlife
• Discover the spiritual importance of the outback landscape to local Aboriginal communities on guided nature walks - exclusive to Intrepid

Is this trip right for you?
• This is a camping trip for those who are looking for the basics. Simple facilities and lack of emphasis on creature comforts make this an authentic experience of the Australian outback.
• Group participation makes up a lot of this trip, so you'll be required to help with preparation of meals and cleaning up. These are the kind of tasks that bring a group closer together. Group sizes can also be pretty big, so be prepared to share this experience with a bigger group than what you might be familiar with.
• Temperatures in the Red Centre can be extreme. During the day the weather can be very hot (and the Australian sun is very strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection and drink plenty of water. In the evenings temperatures really drop, so bring base layers and warm clothing.
• This trip requires a moderate level of fitness as it involves a lot of walking, allowing you to really get among nature. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing.
• On most days of the trip, you’ll spend several hours driving through very sparse areas of desert. Crank up the tunes and sit back to enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel.

Day 1: Alice Springs to Uluru (Ayers Rock)
Starting in Alice Springs, set off to experience a working camel farm, perhaps even enjoying a ride. Make our way to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and take a guided walk through the awe-inspiring Domes of Kata Tjuta. We then head to Australia's most iconic landmark - Uluru (Ayres Rock). As the sun begins to set below the horizon, take a glass of sparkling wine and watch the rock's rich colours change against the backdrop of a blazing Red Centre sunset. The perfect end to a remarkable day is awaiting you back at camp, as you enjoy a famous 1,000 star dinner. With the red earth at your feet and an infinite sprawl of stars overhead, sit down to a candlelit spread of locally sourced food and wines.

Total driving time is approximately five and a half hours. Total walking time is around an hour. (B/L)

Day 2: Uluru Sunrise
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 Aboriginal people on an interpretive cultural walk with an Aboriginal guide. Once you've had lunch, perhaps purchase some Indigenous art and craft 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.

Total driving time today is around three and a half hours. Total walking time is approximately two hours (or up to 4 if you do the full 8.5km base walk.) (B/L/D)

Day 3: Kings Canyon rim walk
After breakfast, get your hiking shoes on and head out to explore the impressive formations of Kings Canyon. You'll be left breathless by the sheer beauty of the canyon, as you trek through the Amphitheatre, the Lost City, the lush and ancient Garden of Eden and the North and South Walls. Lunch is a welcome prospect, and after you've relaxed for a little while we head along an iconic Red Centre dirt track to the Western McDonnell Ranges where we stay overnight at our permanent campsite at Glen Helen.

Total driving time takes around five hours. Total walking time is approximately three hours. (B/L/D)

Day 4: Western MacDonnell Ranges
This morning we journey through Ormiston Gorge, witnessing contrasting colours as the light reflects off the cliffs. Keep your eyes peeled for wallabies and other wildlife. Move on to Ellery Creek to enjoy panoramic views of the area, perhaps taking a dip in its still waters. After lunch, visit the world famous Simpsons Gap, an important site to the local Aboriginal communities. Watch the colour of the peaks transform under the setting sun. An optional, hour-long sunset camel ride is also available. Head back to Alice Springs, where your trip comes to an end.

The total driving time will be about three hours, and you will walk up to 10km. (B/L)
