Rock N Canyon 2019-20
- Experience the sunset and sunrise over Ulu?u
- Walk the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tju?a
- Swag under the stars at Kings Creek Station
Rock and roll your way to Ulu?u for the best sunset and sunrise you'll probably ever see. Swap one natural wonder for another over these five days and see red… in the best possible way with the utterly stunning red rock landscapes. Stargaze, BBQ, hike through canyons and gaze at water holes. This is one Outback trip you won't be forgetting in a hurry.
Day 1: Alice Springs to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
Hit the red ground running as you meet the group and head into Yulara (the gateway resort to Uluru). We're off to visit the sacred monolith itself this afternoon, with a guided walk on the cards. Later, raise a glass of bubbles as we watch the glow of the sunset morph through 50 shades of red. Then: hone your Aussie BBQ skills and cook your own steak (or veggie burger). Welcome to Australia, mate!
Day 2: Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
Forgive the early hour, but this is a sunrise you'll want to see (trust us). Later on, we'll get a sense of the immense scale of Uluru with a base walk. Gear up for the optional activities today - we're talking scenic helicopter rides, camel rides and segway tours.
Day 3: Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to Kings Canyon
After breakfast, get ready for some soul searching - we're off to explore the heart of sacred Kata Tjuta with a walk through the Valley of the Winds. Next: prepare to live the life of a jolly swagman as we bed down in custom swags (think: the ultimate portable sleeping unit) in Kings Creek Station. Keep an eye out for shooting stars, and don't forget to make a wish! Please be aware that in winter months (May-Sept), nighttime temperatures can drop to near 0 degrees so warmer clothing will be required for the night sleeping in the swag. Please note that the twin / double / or single upgrade is not applicable to the Overnight Swag Night at Kings Canyon.
Day 4: Kings Canyon to Alice Springs
Get your hiking boots on! This morning we’ll be tackling the hardest part of the famous Rim Walk in Kings Canyon (aptly named ‘Heart Attack Hill’). Believe us, it’s worth the effort! We’re talking age-old cycads, eroded dome shapes, a visit to The Lost City… and that's not even the best part. The sheltered valley and waterhole of the Garden of Eden will make today even more awesome. After a stop off to grab some lunch, we’ll head back to Alice Springs.
Day 5: Alice Springs
Back in Alice Springs, we’ll have the chance to explore the town centre. Then: time to say a fond farewell to your travel mates. This is the end of the road (for now).
