This small group adventure encompasses the very best the Red Centre has to offer. Four days, exploring four iconic locations (Uluru, Kings Canyon, Kata Tjuta and Tjoritja West MacDonnell Ranges) all wrapped up in one tour.

Introducing your Uluru Red Centre to West MacDonnell Ranges

There is a very good reason why Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.  The park was first added to the list in 1987, when the international community recognised its spectacular geological formations, rare plants and animals, and outstanding natural beauty. Your expert local guide will uncover some of the incredible secrets the Red Centre has to offer with guided -commentary, stories and hidden gems that really bring this place to life.

We have comfortable permanent twin safari tents providing a little more comfort, privacy and security, or you can try out a traditional swag experience (canvas-covered bedroll).

Full Itinerary

Day 1: Alice Springs to Uluru / Ayers Rock

Departing from either Alice Springs or Yulara (Uluru Airport) we head towards Uluru (Ayers Rock) stopping off at Mt Connor (false Uluru) lookout for a view of this mighty red mountain and Curtin Springs for a toilet stop before arriving at our campground for lunch. After lunch, we head to the Red Centre’s indigenous interpretive cultural centre where we have a chance to learn about the cultural, ecological, historical and geological significance of this very special national park. With the anticipation and excitement growing we make a short drive towards the base of Uluru as we begin to comprehend the sheer size and magnificence of the giant monolith, getting up close and personal to explore further.  Walking to Mutitjulu waterhole we discover sacred rock art sites in family caves and hear the creation stories of Kuniya and Liru as we continue our base walk towards Kuniya Piti.  From here we drive around sacred sites towards Kantju Gorge where we envisage the highest waterfall in Central Australia, (truly a spectacle to behold, even more so when raining) an elder’s cave and the world’s oldest pantry.  After exploring the world’s most impressive rock up close and personal, we retreat for panoramic views to witness one of the most incredible sunsets on the planet, all whilst having dinner cooked for you, to feed those hungry eyes and allow you to get to know your fellow travelers.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner. Accom: Uluru Coach Campground – Permanent Safari Tents or Bush Swags (communal facilities). Driving Distance: 350km. Hike Distance: 2-3 km / 2-3 hours.

Day 2: Uluru to Kata Tjuta to Kings Canyon

We wake early for a light breakfast and head off for a spectacular sunrise in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. You thought Uluru was special and just when you think it couldn’t get any more majestic we approach the stunning silhouette of Kata Tjuta.  Here we set off on a hike through the Valley of the Winds or Walpa Gorge marveling at the mighty conglomerate rock formations. After exploring Kata Tjuta we make our way towards Kings Canyon region just in time to experience a glorious outback sunset followed by a hearty meal around the campfire.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Accom: Kings Canyon Campground – Permanent Safari Tents or Bush Swags (private outback facilities). Driving Distance: 406 km  (4.5 Hours). Hike Distance: 2-6 km / 2-4 hours (*weather dependent).

Day 3:  Kings Canyon to West MacDonnell Ranges

We head off early to explore the mighty Kings Canyon (Watarrka) venturing into the ancient landscape and sacred grounds of the Ulpanyali and Lilla people. Arriving at the jewel in the crown at the center of Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) we find ourselves surrounded by towering 100-meter cliff faces, views of sandstone chasms, and jaw-dropping backdrops that will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. Grab your water, hat, and sturdy shoes as we set off on foot to explore (the most seasonally applicable part of) the canyon in more detail. Rest up in the bus as we head back up north, passing through Alice Springs and heading out towards the West MacDonnell Ranges for an evening of stargazing at our bush camp.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. Accom: West MacDonnell Campground – Permanent Safari Tents or Bush Swags (communal facilities). Driving Distance: 370km (4 hours). Hike Distance: 2-4 km / 2-4 hours.

Day 4:  Standley Chasm and Tjoritja West MacDonnell Ranges to Alice Springs 

Known traditionally as Angkerle Atwatye, meaning “Gap of Water”, Standley Chasm is a 3-metre-wide, 80-metre-high gorge amongst the West MacDonnell Ranges. At dawn, we hope to spot the native wildlife as we enjoy breakfast and look forward to the day ahead. Tracking west you are welcome to enjoy a dip in Ellery Creek Bighole, known traditionally as Udepata, surrounded by tall red cliffs and sandy Ellery Creek. Onwards to where massive geological forces created the towering red walls of Ormiston Gorge. Spend time here admiring nature and its finest before we begin our leisurely journey back towards Alice Springs, with our final stop at another amazing feature of the Tjoritja West MacDonnell region, Simpsons Gap, where several dreaming trails and stories cross. Featuring a permanent waterhole this is also a great place to spot resident wildlife. Now we’ve had our fix of the best of central Australia’s natural icons, we deliver you back to Alice Springs to your chosen accommodation and evening plans as you reminisce your four days of exploration and new friends made.

  • Traditional Owners

    Autopia Tours would like to begin by paying our respects to the traditional owners of this country. Please be conscious and respectful of the sensitivities of indigenous culture and the spiritual connection they have with the land at all times.

  • Wildlife Encounters The natural behaviours of wildlife are to be respected and not interfered with. When viewing wildlife, people should take care to avoid rapid or sudden movements, which could frighten the animal, and should keep noise to a minimum and refrain from touching, petting, or feeding all wildlife including birds. Contact with people can introduce diseases to wildlife and can cause them to become aggressive.Wildlife should not be handled or fed, unless by certified wildlife handlers. Feeding wildlife can alter their natural foraging behaviour and can lead to disease or illness through contact with people and the introduction of foods that are harmful to their digestive system. Feeding wildlife can also cause them to become aggressive toward people.Wildlife that appears to be in distress, injured or in danger should be reported immediately to the appropriate authority, such as your Guide/Tour Leader, a National Park Ranger, or Visitor Centre Staff.
  • Protecting our National Parks People should remain on designated walking tracks, behind safety barriers/fences, and follow all directions given by the guide/tour leader. Venturing off these can alter fragile ecosystems and can harm wildlife shelters and native vegetation. There are other dangers to be aware of too, such as cliff edges, unstable rock formations, overhanging tree branches, and slippery ground cover. Remaining on track ensures safe visitation for guests and the environment.No flora or fauna should be removed from their natural setting. This includes dead wood, fallen leaves, flowers, and so forth, as they form part of the ecosystem of the region and their removal could cause a disturbance.
  • Waste Management All buses are fitted with waste bins. No organic waste should be disposed of on the ground. Although organic, items such as banana peels, apple cores, bread, and other food scraps, are not natural/native to the region and can introduce pest species, diseases or harm to wildlife if found and eaten. We recommend all passengers bring a water bottle with them on our Uluru Red Centre Tours. Purchasing bottled water contributes large amounts of plastic into landfill. Therefore, we ask guests to bring their own bottles, as there is access to water refill stations available on our vehicles. Please ensure you stay hydrated throughout the tour to reduce the risk of sun exposure and dehydration.
  • First Aid All our guides carry a current Level 2 First Aid certificate. Please report any accident or illness to your tour guide. We recommend anyone with an existing medical condition carry their medication with them on tour and notify their tour guide at the beginning of the tour.If you are a smoker! We ask you to refrain from smoking whilst in the company of other passengers and limit it to designated smoking areas. Smoking is not permitted on any of our vehicles, or in any type of accommodation including permanent campsites. We make frequent ‘comfort stops’ to allow free time for guests but cannot guaranteed smoke breaks. Please ensure you dispose of your cigarette butt responsibly and appropriately.
