Today you will be met by your friendly and professional crew upon arrival at Alice Springs Airport. This afternoon we enjoy a brief town tour of Alice Springs including Anzac Hill and learn about this very unique outback town before dinner at the hotel.
Today we depart Alice Springs and travel the Mereenie loop through the Western MacDonnell Ranges to Kings Canyon. Enjoy the scenic drive and visit Standley Chasm and Ormiston Gorge before checking in to the Kings Canyon Resort where we will spend the next two nights.
Today enjoy the wonders of the majestic Kings Canyon. Several walks are available, including the 6 km rim walk. This walk features breathtaking views of the Watarrka National Park before descending into the ‘Garden of Eden’. A less arduous walk is also available along the canyon floor (2.6km).
Upon returning to the resort this afternoon, there is an opportunity to take helicopter flights over Kings Canyon and the Watarrka National Park. 15-minute flights costs approximately $150 per person.
This morning we depart Kings Canyon for Uluru. Pass through Kings Creek Station and enjoy an informative paper talk and lunch at Curtin Springs, before arriving at the award-winning Sails in the Desert Hotel, part of the Ayers Rock Resort.
This evening, we prepare for the unique ‘Sounds of Silence’ dining experience under the stars. Offering the best of the Red Centre distilled into four magical hours, the evening begins with canapes and chilled sparkling wine served on a viewing platform overlooking the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. As the sun sets and darkness falls, listen to the sound of the didgeridoo and enjoy premium bush tucker inspired buffet incorporating native bush ingredients. Afterwards, relax by the campfire and listen to the resident star talker decode the southern night sky.
This morning, early risers will experience the sun rising over Uluru and the colours of dawn spreading across the landscape. After breakfast, head off to discover Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and admire the stunning rock formations on a guided walk into Walpa Gorge.
We return to Uluru and enjoy a guided tour around the base of Uluru, which stands 348 metres above the desert plains. Learn about traditional Anangu culture as you marvel at one of the largest monoliths in the world!
Later this afternoon we prepare for our visit to artist Bruce Munro’s global phenomenon ‘Field of Light. Aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku ( looking at lots of beautiful lights), ‘Field of Light’ features 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted spheres, spread across an area the size of 7 football fields.
Departing the resort before sunset, we head to an exclusive dune top location with majestic views of Uluru. Enjoy drinks and canapes as Field of Light gently illuminates and the 50,000 glass spheres come to life. After your host provides some insights into this remarkable installation, you’ll head off to explore the stunning display via dedicated pathways. This evening we return to the hotel for dinner.
After a leisurely breakfast you will be transferred to Ayers Rock Airport or to your accommodation if staying on at Uluru
