3 Days Cockatoo Dreaming Red Centre Safari

It's an early rise if you are joining us in Alice Springs where you will make the journey to Ayers Rock where we will meet our fellow travellers joining us there. On arrival to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, visit a camel farm and discover life atop one of the regions earliest forms of transport. This afternoon embark on an interpretive base walk of Uluru.

After we arrive at the Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park your tour guide will collect those joining us at Yulara Airport and then take you on an interpretive base walk tour of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and not climb it). The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colours of Uluru at sunset. After dinner cooked over the open fire, some campfire stories and star gazing at our private campsite, it's time for a good night's rest in preparation for another active tour day tomorrow.
