Itinerary

Alice Springs Arrive at any time. Tonight, get to know your group over a couple of "bevvies" at a popular local spot in Alice Springs. Channel all of the excitement of arriving in a new place by enjoying live entertainment in an authentic tavern with your new adventure pals.
Alice Springs/Kings Creek Charge those cameras and hit the road to Kings Canyon. Journey to Australia’s famous Red Centre passing through desert plains, weathered mountain ranges, rocky gorges, and some of the most sacred Indigenous sites in the country. Spend your first night together under the stars in a true Aussie desert swag (padded bed roll) and let the good times roll... no pun intended!
Kings Creek/Uluru Rise early, beat the heat, and embark on a morning walk through the gorges and valleys of Kings Canyon. Take in the spectacular views surrounding you and simply enjoy being in the moment. Then it’s time to hop on the bus and drive to Uluru, where Australia’s most iconic view awaits. Grab a glass of bubbly and enjoy one of the most colourful sunsets of your life as Uluru puts on an unforgettable show in the fading light.
Uluru Get in touch with your inner zen as you wake near one of the most spiritual places in Australia. Listen to your peaceful surroundings and reflect before you begin the day. Visit an Indigenous culture centre with the group and partake in the informative Mala Walk at Uluru. This walk is perfect if you are looking to see lots of Indigenous rock art and get away from the crowds. Wander between the sheer walls and tranquility of Kantju Gorge as you explore one of Australia’s most recognizable landmarks. See the colours change before your eyes, learn the significance behind this destination for the local people, and let Uluru capture your heart.
Uluru/Alice Springs The unexplainable energy of the Red Centre will have you itching to head out on another hike. You’re in luck because the group will travel to the Mars-like rock formations of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) to explore the surrounding area. If the temperature isn’t too unbearable you’ll also get to walk through the Valley of the Winds, which is full of dusty orange rock domes just waiting to be enjoyed. Snap some pics, wander away from everyone and revel in the peaceful atmosphere of the Australian Outback before making the drive back to Alice Springs.
Alice Springs/Adelaide Rise early and hop on your flight to Adelaide, the capital of South Australia. Use your free time this afternoon to indulge in the multicultural flavours infused in the city’s restaurants, partake in the pulsing arts and live-music scene, and count church spires as you search for pubs and hip bars tucked away in city lanes. Then it’s time to embrace the energy of Adelaide on a final night out together!
Adelaide Depart at any time. Alas, it is time to bid farewell to “The Land Down Under." Make one more stop at Central Market for some “brekkie” before heading home. Do you want one final adventure? We recommend spending an extra day in Adelaide and adding the ‘Dolphin Swim and Cruise’ extra to your tour. You’ll get to head out in search of wild dolphins, before hopping into the water and going for a swim as they play around you. What a way to end the trip in true "Aussie" fashion.
