Day 2 (B,D)-Tues 30th April

We have an early start (but it's well worth it !) today for sunrise at Uluru. The giant monolith emerges from the inky landscape, changing from purple through to rusty browns and red in the golden sunlight. Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park is world heritage listed for the importance of it's natural phenomena and cultural significance.

We now take a walk around Uluru, which includes the Mala Walk and Mutitjulu waterhole, home of a wanampi, an ancestral watersnake.


After a visit to the Cultural Centre, there is some free timet the resort and lunch is at your own arrangement today.

This afternoon we head out to Kata Tjuta meaning "many heads". The enormous domes, 36 in total, rise out of the sand and weathered over millions of years they are now rounded peaks. The tallest, Mt Olga, is higher than Uluru ! The Walpa Gorge walk is a rocky track that gently rises to a stream, passing rare plants and ending at a grove of spearwood.  Walk within the sheer walls and experience this amazing landscape.

This evening we'll experience the Uluru sunset at the sunset viewing area with nibblies and sparkling wine.

Overnight accommodation- Standard Motel room with en-suite at the Outback Pioneer Hotel

Day 3 (B,L,D)- Wed 1st May

A later start this morning to give you time to look around the Yulara Resort or take an optional activity.

Departing Yulara mid- morning we now travel north to Kings Canyon Resort. After check in, Kins Canyonyou have some time to relax, take the short walk to the sunset viewing platform or take an optional helicopter flight (additional cost).

The flora and fauna around the resort is unique to the Warrarrka National Park. This ancient landscape is rich in diversity but provides harsh conditions with little rain and intense summer heat. Some of the species ho have adapted over the years include camels, donkeys, dingoes, brumbies, kangaroos, wallabies, emu and over 100 species of colourful birds from the central Australian area.

Overnight accommodation- Kings Canyon Resort - Standard room with en-suite

Day 4 (B,L,D)- Thurs 2nd May

We have an early start today, driving to Kings Canyon to take the rim walk. Kings Canyon (Watarrka National Park) contains the western end of the George Gill Range, a scenic landscape of rugged ranges, rockholes and gorges. The sheer red rock face of Kings Canyon soars over 100 metres above dense forests of palms, ferns and cycads, sheltering them from the surrounding desert conditions.

The longest walk, the rim walk takes in the magnificent views of the Canyon rim, the weathered, buttressed domes of "The Lost City" and the "Garden of Eden"- a sheltered valley with permanent waterholes and lush vegetation. A shorter walk, the South Wall Walk and the shorter Kings Canyon Creek Walk are also available- your guide will discuss options with you beforehand and there is a walk suitable for everyone.

Ormiston Gorge in the West Macs

After our walks, we drive to Glen Helen in the West MacDonnell Ranges, part of an ancient landscape sculptured over time by climatic elements.

The trip along the Mereenie Loop road is an adventure in itself and is a lovely drive through some beautiful desert country. Keep your eye out for wildlife too.

Depending on road conditions and what time we arrive, there may be time to take the short walk to Glen Helen Gorge and waterhole. The landscape around Glen Helen is as spectacular as you will find anywhere, with a towering sandstone wall greeting you as you arrive.The resort area and gorge are also home to an array of birds (including waterbirds and birds of prey), insects and reptiles as well as Black Flanked Rock Wallabies and Dingoes.

Overnight accommodation- Glen Helen Bush Resort- Motel room with en-suite

Day 5 (B,L,D)- Fri 3rd May

We spend today exploring the West Macs.

Our first stop is Ormiston Gorge, where you can take a short stroll to the waterhole or take the 40 minute return Ghost Gum walk. The area also contains an interesting variety of native fauna and flora.

Then onto Ellery Creek Big Hole, which is a spectacular waterhole in the mightly Ellery Creek which cuts through a gorge in the ranges. Thousands of years of massive floods have carved out this beautiful waterhole and unlocked some amazinStandley Chasmg geology. It's also a great place for a swim !

Further along the ranges is Aboriginal owned Angkerle Atwatye (Standley Chasm), gouged from tough sandstone by the floods that, over untold millions of years, have surged down a narrow tributary of the Finke River system. The result is a deep red cleft, with slopes on either side rising 80 metres above the floor that are the most dramatic at noon, when the chasmis drenched in a shower of brilliant red light, the sheer walls glowing from the reflected sunlight.

To get to the chasm, we follow a creek where spring- fed pools attract a great variety of wildlife, especially birds and the gully floor is lush with plants that range from delicate ferns to tall gums.

Our final stop today is Simpsons Gap, one of the most prominent waterholes in the region and home to the Black- footed Rock Wallaby. The area around Simpons Gap is a major stronghold for some of the rare and relic plants of the region, large stands of Mulga and ghost gums.

We arrive back into Alice Springs at approximately 6pm for our final group dinner and overnight at our hotel.
