Embrace the magnificence of Kings Canyon, Kata-Tjuta & capture Uluru at sunset while sipping sparkling wine and enjoying an Aussie cooked BBQ. One of the most spectacular and beautiful sights you will ever see.
Day 1: Kata Tjuta, Uluru, The Mala Walk, Mutitjulu Waterhole
Our professional tour guides show you the real outback they love and enjoy so much. We collect you from outside your Alice Springs accommodation at approximately 6am and head to our first stop at Erldunda (home of the Emu) for a buffet breakfast. We then provide you with a freshly made packed lunch to eat on the drive to the World Heritage listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Kata Tjuta - We travel to Kata Tjuta (Olgas) for the first walk of the day into Walpa Gorge. Embrace the domes of Kata Tjuta on your first walk of the day, while taking in the views of the open plains on the return walk. Aboriginal Cultural Centre - We then visit the Aboriginal Cultural Centre where you will have time to learn about the local Pitjantjatjara people and buy some souvenirs. The Cultural Centre was built with 90,000 mud bricks with the help of the local Anangu people. It is built on a sacred site and has very special meaning to the local Anangu people. Uluru – Mala Walk - We then head to the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock), which is next to the entrance to the Uluru climb. From here one of the two guides will take you on a guided Mala Walk. The Mala Walk follows the north-west side of Uluru, where there are many fine examples of Anangu rock art, and you can experience the wonder of the sheer vertical walls. The guide will tell dreamtime stories of the Anangu People. Uluru – Mutitjulu Waterhole - We drive from the front of Uluru around to the Kuniya car park, which is at the back of Uluru. From here we start our second Uluru guided walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. The guide will take you along a short track to the Mutitjulu Waterhole – home of an ancestral water snake called Wanampi. The guide will share stories of local traditions and explain how the Anangu people traditionally used the waterhole for hunting. The caves containing rock art were used in the past by Anangu still alive today. The Sunset BBQ - The scene has been set, the highlight of the day, the breathtaking Uluru sunset with a glass of bubbly and a delicious Aussie BBQ. A spectacular day never to be forgotten. After the sunset BBQ, you will be dropped off at the Outback Pioneer Lodge where you will spend the evening in a 4 share dorm room.

Day 2: Kings Canyon, Kings Creek, Watarrka National Park
AAT Kings pick you up from Outback Pioneer at approximately 4am (Oct-Mar) or 5am (Apr-Sep). Welcome to Kings Canyon - You’ll get a sense of the remoteness of outback Australia as you travel to Kings Creek Station. Watch as the local wildlife wakes for the day – dromedary camels, kangaroos, brumbies and dingoes. Kings Creek Station - This cattle and camel station covers 1,800 square kilometres. Relax in the café where you’ll be treated to a cooked breakfast. Their coffee is said to be the best in the Territory! Kings Canyon - Located in the heart of Watarrka National Park, Kings Canyon lies in an ancient Australian landscape that is sacred ground for the Ulpanyali and Lilla people. Rim Walk - The six kilometre Rim Walk is a once in a lifetime experience. Climb up a 100 metre cliff face and walk around the rim of the canyon. Marvel at impressive views of sandstone walls, grottos, chasms and cliffs. The Garden of Eden - Deep down between sandstone cliffs, is the Garden of Eden – a true oasis. Here is a natural spring waterhole surrounded by local and exotic plants and trees such as gums, bonsai looking trees and enormous prehistoric ferns, creating a truly unique landscape. Creek Bed Walk - The Creek Bed Walk is ideal if you’re interested in something more relaxing. After leisurely taking in the sights, set off on a two kilometre stroll along the creek bed that leads to views of the impressive canyon rim. Kings Canyon Resort - Now we’re off to Kings Canyon Resort – an oasis in the outback! Treat yourself to lunch (own expense). To see Kings Canyon from above, take an optional scenic helicopter flight (creek bed walkers only), or bring your swimmers if you’d like to take a dip in the resort’s pool. Scenic Return Journey - Enjoy amazing outback scenery as we head back to Alice Springs. AAT Kings then drop you at your accommodation in Alice Springs at approximately 7:30pm.
