Day 3, Alice Springs
7.00pm (Oct-Mar)
7.30pm (Apr-Sep)

On arrival at Ayers Rock Airport you’ll be transferred to the resort (flights to arrive prior to 1.30pm).

Visit Uluru–Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre to learn more about the Western Desert region, then tour the sacred sites around the base of Uluru with a local Driver Guide. Walk to sacred Mutitjulu Waterhole, and view ancient Aboriginal rock art. Later, relax with a glass of sparkling wine as the sun sets over Uluru (Ayers Rock), bringing out the myriad shades of colour for which the world’s largest monolith is renowned.

Hotel: Outback Pioneer Hotel, Desert Gardens Hotel or Sails in the Desert Hotel, Ayers Rock Resort.

Rise early to watch the first rays of the sun set Uluru and the Red Centre alight. Later, travel to the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). On the way enjoy panoramic views of the southern side of Kata Tjuta before arriving at the base of Walpa Gorge. Spend time exploring the gorge and the unusual conglomerate rock formations.

This afternoon travel to Kings Canyon.

Hotel: Kings Canyon Resort, Standard Rooms or Kings Canyon Resort, Deluxe Spa Rooms

At sunrise, make the steep rocky climb to the rim of the Kings Canyon for spectacular views of Watarrka National Park. Follow the rim of the canyon, stopping to look down into the gorge from a series of lookout points along the way. The rim walk takes approximately 3 hours to complete and is rocky and steep in parts. If you wish to take an easier, shorter walk instead, you can explore the boulder-strewn canyon floor, getting up-close to the native plants and birdlife that call this part of the world home. 



As this Short Break concludes after 7.00pm, accommodation will need to be pre-booked for the night.
