Uluru Adventure (Basix)

Want to see the Red Centre’s greatest natural attractions in under three days? Easy. Jump on this trip and you’ll admire Uluru by sunrise and sunset, explore the natural wonders of Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) – the Lost City, Amphitheater, Garden of Eden, The North and Southern Walls.

Weave through the gigantic boulders and gullies of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and enjoy an evening of open air Outback dining with 1,000 Star Dinner Experience.

Itinerary  
Day 1: Uluru and Kata Tjuta

The first stop on this Red Centre adventure is a working camel farm. These "ships of the desert"were brought to Australia during the 19th century to help with desert transport and eventually grew to such numbers that we now trade them back to the Middle East. After learning a bit about the role these beasts played in charting Australia, you'll have the opportunity to hop aboard one for a ride. Following lunch, it's on to the boulder-strewn landscape of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Wandering through the site's gullies and crevices, you'll learn a little about the area's geological and ecological significance from your guide. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine as the sun starts to set over Uluru. Make back for camp, arriving in time for our exclusive 1000 start Dinner, which features our signature native-inspired menu.

Day 2: Uluru

There's no better way to start today than with an early morning walk around the world's biggest rock. With the cool night air sill lingering and day-trippers not yet arrived, this is Uluru at its atmospheric. It might be hard to believe when gazing up at this 600 million year old monolith from the ground, but the bulk of this rock is believed to lie bellow the surface. A local indegenous guide will explain a little about the creation time stories surrounding the area during a guided interpretive cultural walk. There will be time to see the traditional arts and crafts on display at the nearby Cultural Centre before travelling on to our exclusive and private campsite in Watarrka National Park.

Day 3: Kings Canyon

The centerpiece attraction of Watarrka is undoubtedly Kings Canyon, a humungous gorge enclosed by sheer rock walls hundred of meters high. Offering a welcome escape from the dry desert heat, the site's deep gullies and hidden rockpools provide shelter to more than 600 species of native plants and animals. Your guide will point some of these out on a guided trek that takes in the canyon's most famous sites - the Lost City, Garden of Eden, Amphitheater and North and South Walls. Then it's lunch, rest, and back to Alice for farewells.
