5 - Excellent
“Had a really good tour. The tour guide was great and the group of people I was travelling with were awesome. If you're looking for a great and relaxing experience and a lot of fun, this tour is definitely the right one.”
We're hitting the red ground running as we take to the road and head into Yulara (the gateway resort to Uluru) for lunch . It's off to the breathtaking Uluru in the afternoon for a guided tour, and a glass of bubbles as the glow of sunset morphs through 50 shades of red. Tonight hone your Aussie BBQ skills and cook your own steak (or veggie burger). Welcome to the outback, mate.

Start your day with a big bowl of 'oh my god' thanks to a breathtaking sunrise back at Uluru. Follow in the footsteps of the traditional owners of this sacred World Heritage site with a full base walk, where you can escape the crowds and check out hidden waterholes. Keep watch for wedge-tailed eagles, spinifex hopping mice and thorny devils. Or splurge on a Harley ride or scenic flight and soar over the rock. Later, join an optional meditative dot painting class in the Aboriginal Art Markets and give yourself a free astrology lesson, stargazing at the endless Southern night sky.

After a hearty breakfast, we spend a few hours back in the National Park. This time get ready for some soul searching as we venture into the heart of sacred Kata-Tjuta (The Olgas) and walk amongst the 36 red sandstone giants through the Valley of the Winds. After a drive into Watarrka National Park, live the life of a jolly swagman as we sleep under the stars in custom swags. Cue campfire stories and marshmallows tonight.

Please be aware that in winter months (May-Sept), nighttime temperatures can drop to near 0 degrees, warmer clothing will be required for the night sleeping in the swag.

If you would walk 500 miles (steps), then you'll make it through the toughest part of the Rim Walk - Heart Attack Hill. The Kings Canyon Rim Walk is the real deal and the most famous canyon in Oz. Think 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 makes today bloody bonza (translation: awesome). After a picnic lunch, we'll board the bus back to Alice Springs.

  • Guided hike of Kings Canyon
  • Garden of Eden walk

Wake up. Rub eyes. Climb into a hot air balloon. Just saying, it's an option...and an amazing start to the day. Back to earth venture on an excursion out amongst the Western MacDonnell Ranges. Our stops include the peaceful Simpsons Gap and the impressive Standley Chasm. It's back to Alice Springs to grab a late lunch and explore the town centre. This afternoon, have a wander. There are local Aboriginal art galleries to check out, the Desert Park Gardens to explore and the Reptile Centre to get creeped out in. Book in the optional late afternoon Kangaroo Sanctuary tour for sunset.

Included today
  • Stanley Chasm
  • Simpsons Gap
Meals
  • Breakfast
Optional activities
  • Hot air balloon ride
  • Desert Park
  • Alice Springs Reptile Centre
  • Kangaroo sanctuary
Check out the world's longest Dingo Fence (good thing there's a gate) and truck on past some very remote roadhouses before crossing the border into South Australia. It's time to cross the gemstone littered and soft grounds of the Moon Plain up the middle of Australia. Then we roll into the next gem on our list to check out where 75% of the world's opals come from and a chance to meet the orphans of the kangaroo world.

Meals
  • Breakfast
  • Dinner
After a #saltlakeselfie stop and a meet-and-greet with the sheep farming township of Glendambo (with a population of 30) we're riding south into the Flinders Ranges. You'll want to keep your camera charged for this one. Round off the day with a pub meal - tomorrow's going to be epic.

  • Opal mine & town tour
  • Kangaroo orphanage

Flinders Ranges National Park is a spoiled brat, it has everything. From mountains to gorges and creeks to rivers, you're lucky you get to play in it today. Take a hike to Wilpena Pound - a natural amphitheatre about three times the size of Uluru. Then to rock art site Arkaroo Rock, and the Kanyaka Ruins - an abandoned sheep and cattle farm.

Included today
  • Wilpena Pound guided walk
  • National Park entry
Meals
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
We start our way away from the outback today with some dramatic scenery changes - we are heading for the City! A visit to the Barossa Reservoir Whispering Wall - there's a time and a place for confessions. This isn't it. Tonight take in some of Adelaide's finest local food and entertainment.
