Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 596

Alice Springs is Australia’s most famous Outback town and Uluru/Ayers Rock is Australia’s most recognizable natural icon. Take time to explore these incredibly unique parts of the country.


Let a “Town like Alice” fascinate and delight you on this 3 day trip, which takes you to see the outback’s biggest stars.

The town of Alice Springs offers you experiences utterly unique to the Australian outback. Consider arriving early to visit the Museum of Central Australia or ‘take a camel to dinner’. Depart early next morning for the spectacular MacDonnell Ranges, Ayers Rock and the magnificent Olgas. Deeply shrouded in myth mostly undisclosed to outsiders, these 36 domes are said to be the home of the great snake king Wanambi.

Watch as the setting sun sets alight the colours of Uluru. You’ll also have time to visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, to learn more about the great significance these sites hold to the local Aboriginal people.
