Day 1 - Alice Springs - Kings Canyon - Uluru

Kick off your Red Centre Adventure with a drive through James and Waterhouse Ranges and the ancient Hugh and Finke river systems on the way to Kings Canyon. There's a bit of exploring to do here: the monumental North and South Walls, the Amphitheatre, the Lost City and the lush, inviting Garden of Eden. From here we head to another ancient landform, Uluru (Ayers Rock) where we stay overnight in our private campsite. (LD)

Day 2 - Uluru to Marla

An early start to today as we are of to a great location to catch the exquisite sunrise over Uluru. From here there's time to appreciate the stunning spherical landscape of Kata Tjuta, otherwise known as the Olgas, while we hike the Walpa gorge trail. This afternoon we cross the border into the South Australia then it's not far from here to our stop for the night in Marla. (BLD)

Day 3 - Marla to Coober Pedy

We leave the Red Centre behind and travel across the vast outback plains - destination Coober Pedy. On the way we'll stop at the Breakaways, with views of the natural beauty for miles around. This region is rightly known as the Opal Capital of the World, as you will soon discover. Upon arrival we'll get a tour of the town with a local, before visiting the Underground Mine & Museum. Our bunkhouse for tonight is - you guessed it - underground. (BLD)

Day 4 - Coober Pedy to Quorn

Before leaving this unique town, we have the opportunity to visit an outdoor public opal fossicking site - you never know your luck! Heading Southbound on the Stuart Highway we come across the Salt lakes of Central Australia that will make some awesome Facebook photos (and turn your friends green with envy). A quick stop in Port Augusta then inland towards the Southern Flinders Ranges widely considered one of the most attractive natural landscapes in Australia; the Ranges combine adventure, spirituality and tranquillity. Later there's time to check in at our accommodation before we relax over a friendly Aussie BBQ dinner. (BLD)

Day 5 - Flinders Ranges & Wilpena Pound

We enter the National Park proper, a place where majestic scenery meets tranquil vibes. The group will take a hike through the Flinders Ranges, one of Australia's most stately and imposing landscapes. Take in the natural amphitheatre of Wilpena Pound, set amongst an ancient crater formed millions of years ago, or just soak up the stillness. Heading back to Quorn we'll pay a visit to the Yourambulla Caves, home to some early Indigenous rock paintings - our guide will show us around. Enjoy a pub meal and drinks with the locals. (BLD)

Day 6 - Quorn to Adelaide

It's not far from our starting point this morning, where we'll we take in a spectacular view from the top of Mt Remarkable. As we travel into the more fertile farming areas the landscape changes from what we have seen over the past few days. We venture through the Clare Valley, the hidden wine region of the state. We'll stop for lunch at a local winery in the Clare Valley, with a few tastings thrown in if the mood strikes you. Once through the valley we are bound for the City of Churches - Adelaide. Tonight enjoy live music at one of the many local venues. (BL)
