Additional Information

All bookings must be confirmed a minimum of 72 hours before departure by email or phone.

FAQ's:
What is a swag?
A swag is made from strong canvas, sewn like a large sleeping bag with a comfortable sponge mattress inside providing warmth, comfort and security. You sleep in your sleeping bag inside the swag – so it's much warmer than a tent!

What are the departure and arrival times?
Alice Springs pick-ups: approximately 5:45am.
Ayers Rock pick-ups: 1/04/2018 to 7/10/2018: Outback Pioneer 1:30PM, Ayers Rock Airport 2PM; From 7/10/2018 to 31/03/2018: Ayers Rock Airport 1PM, Outback Pioneer 1:15PM
We return to Alice Springs at around 5:30pm on the third day. If you have requested an Ayers Rock finish, you will arrive at approximately 5:30pm.

What fitness level is required?
A real spirit of adventure and a medium level of fitness is required. There is a lot to see over the 3 days and this tour can be fast paced at times. It is important to note that Central Australia experiences extreme weather conditions during summer. Participation is required from passengers on our camping tours for things such as meal preparation and firewood collection (as requested by guide).

What amenities are at the campsites?
All our campsites have hot showers and toilets, screened kitchens with electricity to charge cameras or phones. We have permanent 4 share safari tents at all our campsites. We also have twin share tents for those who like a bit of privacy - $75/person/tour (payable direct).

Tour Description

Day 1: Alice Springs to Kata Tjuta & Uluru Sunset

Starting in Alice Springs, we stop at an authentic outback camel farm, then continue on to the permanent campsite at Yulara for lunch before embarking to explore the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta. Here we get up close to this ancient geological formation during an afternoon hike. The perfect end to a remarkable day is watching the Rock’s rich colours change against a blazing Red Centre sunset. Depending on your mood you can choose to sleep in a permanent 4 share safari tent (bunk beds) or in a swag (Aussie bedroll) under millions of outback stars. Option upgrade to twin tents available at $75/person per tour – twin tent upgrade price includes sleeping bag and pillow. (L,D)

If you’re starting the tour in Ayers Rock we will pick you up from the Outback Pioneer Lodge (Ayers Rock Resort), or from the Ayers Rock Airport.

Day 2: Uluru to Kings Canyon

Enjoy a glorious sunrise with a walk around the base of Uluru. Deepen your understanding of the land and the Mala people during a walk with your tour guide. There’s an opportunity to purchase Aboriginal arts and crafts at the Cultural Centre before travelling to our exclusive campsite in Watarrka Nation Park (Kings Canyon). You can choose tonight to sleep in a swag (Aussie bedroll) under millions of outback stars or in one of our permanent 4 share safari tents (bunk beds). Optional upgrade to twin tents available at $75/person per tour – twin tent upgrade price includes sleeping bag and pillow. (B,L,D)


Day 3: Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

Discover the Lost City and Garden of Eden on a 6km hike in Kings Canyon. Admire and explore the towering walls and crevices of Watarrka National Park. The photo opportunities are endless in Kings Canyon so be sure to bring your camera. At the end of the trek it’s time to refuel with a bite to eat before making the journey back to the remote centre of Alice Springs. (B,L)

Or if you choose to finish the tour in Ayers Rock, you will be transferred from Kings Canyon Resort to Ayers Rock Resort after lunch. Please note that this service must be requested at the time of booking, and will incur an additional charge of $125 per adult / $65 per child.
