3 Day Cockatoo Dreaming Uluru (Ayers Rock) Tour Itinerary - 3 days

  • Day 1 Alice Springs to Uluru
    Start your journey with an early pick up in Alice Springs. We drive out to Ayers Rock where you will meet those joining us at Uluru (Ayers Rock) airport. On arrival to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park we visit a camel farm. Here you will discover one of Australia's earliest forms of transport. There is the option to take a camel ride.

    This afternoon embark on an interpretive base walk of Uluru. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and do not climb it). The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching one of the worlds most wondrous sunsets. Uluru at sunset is a once in a lifetime experience. After dinner, some stories and stargazing, it’s time for a good night’s rest at your private campsite before another active day tomorrow. (L*D)
  • Day 2 Uluru and Kata Tjuta to Kings Canyon
    This morning you will be out of your comfy swag early to see the famous Uluru sunset. This time of the day in the desert is so magical, take in the wonderful colours as the sun makes its appearance.

    Then it’s a short drive to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), an aboriginal word for “many heads”, to explore its domes of which there are 36 in total. Pull on your hiking boots and take the Valley of the Winds walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness. After lunch, it’s farewell to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park as you travel to Kings Creek Station to spend the night at your private camp. (BLD)
  • Day 3 Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

The rim of Kings Canyon is a 6km round trip walk and you will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and tranquil Garden of Eden. After your final meal together, enjoy the journey back to Alice Springs arriving in the late afternoon. (BL)

Real Aussie Says:
This 3 day Red Centre adventure tour offers a great value for money Ayers Rock tour to Uluru (Ayers Rock), Watarrka (Kings Canyon) and Kata Tjuata (the Olgas) staying in really private and remote campsites. Start from Alice Springs or Ayers Rock Airport and finish in Alice Springs. I started in Ayers Rock airport as I had a cheap flight from Sydney. I didn't miss any of the tour starting just after lunch on the first day, pick up was on time at the airport. We were travelling in an air-conditioned minibus which was totally comfortable so the distances didn't feel long at all. So much to absorb with the fascinating information of the area and its people all provided by the experienced guide. A great trip to tick the Red Centre off my bucket list!
