Itinerary

Day 1: Flinders Range We start our adventure travelling through the vineyards of the Clare Valley wine region, but soon enough we’re heading into the rugged Outback through the historic town of Melrose, gateway to the Flinders Ranges. We enjoy an easy stroll through the awesome Alligator Gorge, which is sometimes bursting with wild-flowers. We’ll then settle in the heart of the Southern Flinders Ranges for the night. Day 2: Along the way to Coober Pedy, the Opal Capital of the World, you’ll notice the incredible changing landscapes. Wildlife, such as kangaroos, emus and eagles will scatter as road trains thunder across a landscape that resembles Mars or the Moon. On a tour of an underground mine and Opal Mine and Museum, you’ll learn about the history of Coober Pedy. A 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. Tonight, we sleep as the locals do underground, in bunkhouse accommodation. Day 3: Kings Canyon It’s a big day driving up the Stuart Highway, with several pit stops en route. Our mission today is to reach the majestic Watarrka National Park, Kings Canyon, where we’ll camp for the night in an authentic station. Day 4: Uluru We get up early to explore Watarrka, Kings Canyon, where you’ll need to stop to admire and photograph the massive sandstone walls, vast canyon floor and stunning gorges. On the Canyon Rim Walk for 3 to 4 hours, you’ll experience the beautiful Garden of Eden and learn more about the local Aboriginal culture. After lunch, we begin our journey into Uluru. Nothing will prepare you for the sight of The Rock. We quickly set up camp before learning about the local Aboriginal History at the Uluru Kata Tjuta Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Soon after we’ll be experiencing our first awe-inspiring Uluru sunset, taking time to absorb the beauty and majesty of this place. Day 5: Uluru We start the day at dawn taking a 3 and a half hour, walk around the base of Uluru. Hiking through acacia woodlands and grassy clay pans, you’ll spot wildlife at waterholes, marvel at The Rock’s geological wonders and learn more about Aboriginal interpretations from your Culturally Accredited Groovy Guide. Later, we relax back at our campground or join one of our Adrenalin Plus options. Day 6: Kata Tjuta After devouring yet another scrumptious breakfast we’ll experience a glorious sunrise over Kata Tjuta before we hike to lookouts around Kata Tjuta, the Olgas and visit the majestic Valley of the Winds with its ancient rock formations and extraordinary views. After lunch, we’ll hit the road to Alice Springs, arriving approximately at 18:30.
