This afternoon, join your Journey Director and fellow travellers to explore the foundations of life and society of the local Aboriginal people and their ancestors, before travelling to Kata Tjuta for a walk through Walpa Gorge. As the day fades, the outback sun bids a fiery farewell – the perfect backdrop for a Welcome Reception with sparkling wine while overlooking Uluru.

Enjoy the mesmerising arrival of another day overlooking Kata Tjuta and Uluru. Skirting the red cliffs of Uluru, hear ancient tales, see rock art and visit Mutitjulu Waterhole. The next stop is Curtin Springs Station, where you’ll gain insights into the cattle-rearing heritage of the Severin family and enjoy a BBQ lunch before viewing Atila (Mt. Conner). Travelling to Kings Canyon, stop at Kings Creek Station. This evening, under the canopy of a starry southern hemisphere sky, settle back with sparkling wine – the flickering glow of the fire is the perfect accompaniment to Under A Desert Moon dinner.

Gaze across the deep chasm of Kings Canyon as you embark on a sunrise 6km rim walk, taking in the domed ‘Lost City’ and the verdant ‘Garden of Eden. If you’d prefer a more relaxed walk, you can opt for a more gentle walk along the Canyon Creek Bed. Afterwards you’re off the beaten track, travelling along the 4WD Mereenie Loop Road past Gosses Bluff and then through the West MacDonnell Ranges to the iconic outback town of Alice Springs.

Hotel: Crowne Plaza Alice Springs Lasseters, 2 nights

This morning you’ll visit the historic Overland Telegraph Station and learn why it was established in Alice Springs. Now the stunning landscapes of the West MacDonnell Ranges take centre stage as you embark on a walk through Simpsons Gap and dramatic Angkerle, which was created over millions of years. The deep red sandstone formation contrasts with the lush green ferns and gum trees on the valley floor. This evening, join your Alice Springs hosts for a Local dining Experience barbecue dinner around a campfire, as the Milky Way lights up the sky.

Included Meals: Full buffet breakfast, lunch, Local Dining Experience

This epic adventure is almost at its end, but not before you visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service to see how this facility provides medical assistance to those living in remote outback Australia. You’ll also visit the School of the Air to learn how children living in the far reaches of the outback receive an education over the air waves. Your Red Centre Inspiring Journey comes to an end later this morning.

Included Meals: Full buffet breakfast
