1 Arrive Uluru - Sacred Sites & Sunset

On arrival at Ayers Rock Airport you'll be transferred to the resort (flights to arrive prior to 1.30pm). Visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre to learn more about the Western Desert region, then tour the sacred sites around the base of Uluru with a local Driver Guide. Walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole, and view ancient Aboriginal rock art. In the late afternoon, relax with a glass of sparkling wine as the sun sets over Uluru, bringing out the myriad shades of colour for which the world's largest monolith is renowned.

  • Budget: Outback Pioneer Hotel
  • Standard: Desert Gardens Hotel
  • Superior: Sails in the Desert Hotel
+ Add-on Uluru Barbecue Dinner

After sunset continue to our exclusive venue for an Aussie Barbecue Dinner, with Uluru as your stunning backdrop. You’ll be the only group in the National Park after dark. The site is set amongst red sand dunes and desert oak trees, providing a peaceful desert setting.

Relax in the company of friends and fellow travellers and enjoy sparkling wine on arrival then dine on a menu of steak, kangaroo meat, lamb sausages, chicken skewers and garlic prawns, salads and a tasty dessert. All accompanied by a selection of red and white wines, beer and soft drinks. There’s time for stargazing too (weather permitting). This is the perfect way to complement Uluru’s amazing sunset. Inform your tour consultant if you wish to include this in the tour.

2 Uluru - Kata Tjuta - Kings Canyon

Rise early to watch the first rays of the sun set Uluru and the Red Centre alight. Later, travel to the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta. On the way enjoy panoramic views of the southern side of Kata Tjuta before arriving at the base of Walpa Gorge. Spend time exploring the gorge and the unusual conglomerate rock formations. This afternoon travel to Kings Canyon.

  • Budget: Kings Canyon Resort (Standard Rooms)
  • Standard: Kings Canyon Resort (Standard Rooms)
  • Superior: Kings Canyon Resort (Deluxe Spa Rooms)
3 Kings Canyon - Depart Alice Springs

At sunrise, make the steep rocky climb to the rim of the Kings Canyon for spectacular views of Watarrka National Park. Follow the rim of the canyon, stopping to look down into the gorge from a series of lookout points along the way. The rim walk takes approximately 3 hours to complete and is rocky and steep in parts.

If you wish to take an easier, shorter walk instead, you can explore the boulder-strewn canyon creek bed, getting up-close to the native plants and birdlife that call this part of the world home. Your Short Break concludes in Alice Springs. Please Note: As this Short Break concludes after 7.00pm, accommodation will need to be pre-booked for tonight.
