Your Itinerary

Day 1

Leave Adelaide for the Clare Valley. Winery visit for lunch in the Flinders Ranges. Straight into the arid zone. Woomera. Bush camp at Lake Hart.

Day 2

Wake up with a fire near a salt lake in the desert. Up the Stuart highway to Coober Pedy, for an opal mine tour, a tour of the town, a kangaroo orphange and a pizza sunset.

Day 3

If we're on time (!) we'll visit The Breakaways for sunrise. After that, it's a long day on the bus, driving 800km into The Northern Territory to get to our camp at Uluru. See the sunset over Uluru and Kata-Tjuta from our camp.

Day 4

Sunrise at Uluru, followed by the a solo walk around the base, a guided walk, sightseeing and the cultural centre. A break in the day at the pool to relax before dinner and drinks at Uluru sunset.

Day 5

Up early to get the sunrise on the Valley of the Winds walk at Kata Tjuta. (My personal favorite). Back to camp for lunch and packup as we head towards the Geroge Gill Range and Kings Canyon. Sunset from camp at Kings Creek Station.

Day 6

Early sunrise walk around the rim of Kings Canyon in Watarrka N.P. A favorite with everyone. Option for a helicopter flight over the range. Lunch at camp. Off towards Alice Springs for a few lessons in bush foods and medicine before arriving at bushcamp.

Day 7 

Wake at bushcamp and head into Alice Springs for quick coffee before heading towards the stunning gorges, gaps and chasms in The West MacDonnell Ranges (Tjoritja). Spend the day exploring the ancient riverways and waterholes. Back to Alice Springs to be dropped at your accomodation before meeting for an end of tour meal.

 

Those returning on the bus the next day will be picked up at 7am to drive towards Coober Pedy that night for a bush camp.
