Melbourne might have the arts scene and Sydney the beaches, but Alice Springs is really where you need to go to understand Australia proper. Approximately 70% of the Australian continent is classed as arid or semi-arid - and little old Alice Springs sits right in the middle of it all. First stop for the day is a working outback camel farm, where you'll have the chance to lope through the outback on a 'ship of the desert'. Whereas Uluru emerges from the earth as one giant boulder form, Kata Tjuta pops up as 36 different domes - you'll get to know the site pretty well on an afternoon hike following lunch. As evening begins, enjoy a glass of bubbles as the sun sets over Uluru casting incredible colours on the Rock, and afterwards it's time to tuck into our famous 1,000 Star Dinner: an outdoor candlelit feast of delicious food and wines.

Today, driving time is approximately 4.5 hours. Walking is approximately one hour.

* Accommodation Permanent tented camp (with shared facilities) (1 night)

In their creation-time stories, the Anangu's ancestral beings the Mala settled here after being chased to the region by an evil dog-like creature called kurpany. The on-site Cultural Centre also houses an extensive collection of indigenous arts and crafts for you to browse. Tonight we spend the night in an exclusive campsite in Watarrka National Park.
