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.

Ayers Rock to Uluru
Departing Alice Springs bright and early, we hit the road on our adventure of a lifetime (For those commencing the tour at Uluru, we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or the airport). Our journey begins heading south through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at the Camel Farm for a Camel ride if you're keen (own expense). We stop at Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can view or purchase Aboriginal artefacts. Stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first significant rock formation of our trip.
After a stop for lunch and our arrival at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, we travel to the base of Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, hearing of the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). Continuing on, we meet our local Aboriginal Guide who will provide a once in a lifetime authentic Indigenous cultural experience with an interpretive walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole where you will hear the stories of the unique landscapes, art and culture of the local custodians, the Anangu people. We conclude at the Cultural Centre, where you may explore the displays and learn of the flora and fauna of this unique area.
Experience the famous changing colours of Uluru at sunset, away from the crowds, complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It's a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert. Afterwards settle in at our remote private camp, complete with our signature Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.
Uluru to Kings Creek
Rising early, take a short walk to a lookout close to our campsite to view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta without the hustle and bustle of the public viewing areas before heading off to Kata Tjuta for a walk through the "Valley of the Winds". Afterwards, we're off to Kings Creek Cattle Station for our second nights' 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. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingoes howling in the distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.

Kings Creek to Alice Springs
Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing 6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka. We'll visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil 'Garden of Eden'. Later we start making our way back to Alice Springs travelling on a typical outback dirt road. We'll drop you back at your accommodation early evening and usually all meet later for a bit of a night on the town (Alice seems like the big smoke after 3 days in the bush).
