From Alice Springs, we journey across the rugged Outback to Uluru. Nothing will prepare you for the sight of The Rock - it's awesome! We learn about the region's indigenous history at the Uluru Kata Tjuta Aboriginal Cultural Centre before taking an easy walk around the base of Uluru and learn more about Aboriginal interpretations from your Culturally Accredited Groovy Guide. There's no better way to finish the day than watching the amazing sunset over Uluru, before snuggling inside your swag under the star-studded desert sky.

After an early breakfast, we'll head to Kata Tjuta for a sumptuous sunrise and visit the majestic Valley of the Winds, with its ancient rock formations and extraordinary views. The hikes here can be challenging at times with steep sections and duration of about 3 ½ hours. We relax back at our campground, take a dip in the swimming pool or join one of our adrenalin Plus options.

Today we set out for Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon), you'll need to stop to admire and photograph the massive sandstone walls, vast canyon floor and breath-taking gorges. On the Canyon Rim Walk (3-4 hours) experience the beautiful Garden of Eden and learn more about local Aboriginal culture.

Along the way to Coober Pedy - the Opal Capital of the World - you'll notice the incredible change of scenery. We'll get the chance to visit the Opal Mine and Museum where you'll learn the history of the town. The highlight for some is visiting Josephine's Kangaroo Orphanage, where you can meet the rescued kangaroos and baby joeys and admire (or buy) Aboriginal art and didgeridoos. Soon after you'll get the chance to taste one of the most amazing pizzas in the outback before spending the night in a bunkhouse sleeping the way the locals do - underground!

After breakfast, we journey south into the foothills of the magnificent Flinders Ranges. On the way we stop at Pimba and get a chance to view the salt lakes. We'll stop en route for lunch before driving to Wilmington where we'll sleep among the red gum trees.

We enjoy a morning walk through the stunning Alligator Gorge, which is sometimes bursting with wild flowers and amazing wildlife: you might get the chance to spot kangaroos or wallabies. We enjoy our last lunch together, before heading to Adelaide.
