Duration: 6 Days
Take that long awaited pilgrimage to the heart of Australia and experience Indigenous culture, unique desert adventures and the ever-changing colours of Uluru. Jam packed with eye-opening moments and special VIP experiences, you’ll leave no red stone uncovered on this Outback escape.
Admire the imposing West MacDonnell Ranges that surround Alice Springs; travel to Kings Canyon, and enjoy the Creek Walk or choose to take on the incredible Kings Canyon Rim Walk; and stand in awe of the majestic Uluru as the sun sets beyond; and again for sunrise the next day, then witness the grandeur of Kata Tjuta.
Beyond the incredible sites are the local Aboriginal guides who share much of their sacred culture. Enjoy a guided walk with an Indigenous guide at Standley Chasm as they teach you about local geology, flora, fauna, bush medicine and tukka, weaponry and cultural history; and, follow the path to the base of Uluru with your local guide, where they’ll show you ancient Aboriginal Rock paintings and tell you their stories and historic significance.
