Short on time and travelling on a budget? This trip from Outback Tour Services gets you to the Red Centre’s biggest attractions in minimum time, at a minimum cost. Attractions include Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and of course Uluru.
Day 1: Alice Springs to Kata Tjuta & Uluru
We drive through the beautiful outback before our first 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. After sunset we drive to our campsite for hot showers, a hearty meal and a night sleeping in a swag (Aussie bedroll) under millions of outback stars or in one of our permanent tents (twin share).
