Goanna Dreaming 4WD Camping Safari

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 559

Enjoying an opportunity to veer off the beaten track and experience the real desert – private bush camps, quality campfire cooked food and sleeping under the clear southern stars.


Want to camp it up in the outback without bringing miles of silver chiffon and a bus named Priscilla? This 3 day excursion under the southern stars is the trip for you.

Depart Alice Springs, stopping at a camel farm, Mt. Ebenezer Roadhouse and Mt Connor on your way to Ayers Rock. Visit the Cultural Centre at Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to learn about some of the mythology and culture that shrouds this region. Watch the changing colours of Uluru at sunset over sparkling wine and nibbles.

Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas, is supposedly the home of the great snake king Wanambi. See these 36 spectacular domes on your way to Kings Creek Cattle Station, for stunning views and a delicious campfire dinner. Kings Canyon then awaits your explorer’s curiosity with open arms – or at least, plenty of open crevices and plateaus to roam before your return to Alice Springs.

Day 1

Alice Springs to Uluru

After getting picked up from your accommodation bright and early, complete ticketing and introductions and then hit the road on your adventure of a lifetime.

The journey begins heading south to Erldunda travelling through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at The Camel Farm for refreshments and a Camel ride if you are keen (at own cost). Continue to Mt. Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal artifacts. On the way to Uluru (Ayers Rock), stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of the trip.

After a stop for lunch and arrival at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, head to the Cultural Centre where you will have an opportunity to learn about the local Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa) before a short, guided walk at the base of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting (note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu, the indigenous custodians, respectfully ask visitors not to climb it).

Of course, no Uluru tour would be complete without experiencing the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset, complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It is a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert.

Tonight's stay is at a Private Bush Camp.

Day 2

Uluru to Kings Creek

From a lookout close to the campsite, view the sunrise over Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) before rolling up the swags and heading off to Kata Tjuta for a leisurely 7km walk through the "Valley of the Winds". After a stop at the resort for fuel and refreshments, continue to Kings Creek Cattle Station for the second night's private bush camp, complete with bush toilet and shower.

With nobody else for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Dinner around the campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under the stars.
