Alice Springs, NT

Uluru is universally known as a natural wonder of the world but here locally, it is a sacred symbol of Australia, our red beating heart in the country’s centre that captures the spirit of the nation. No matter how many photos you’ve seen, nothing can ever prepare you for the wave of awe and wonder you’ll feel when you see it up close and personal rising up from the horizon. While the highlight of this trip is a guided hike around the base of Uluru, you’ll also meet new furry friends at the camel farm, explore the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta, trek around Kings Canyon, and sleep under a canopy of glittering stars. Buckle up for a truly life-changing experience.

Then we’re headed to Kata Tjuta for lunch and an afternoon hike. Kata Tjuta is lesser-known than Uluru but is no less one of Australia’s most brilliant sights with 36 domes of rock popping up out of the red desert earth. We’ll watch the vibrant shades of colour dancing on Uluru for the sunset with some tasty snacks before making our way to camp for a delicious dinner. Cross your fingers for clear skies to fall asleep under a night full of stars.

Escape the desert’s searing heat in the canyon’s shady walls with deep gullies and soaring domes and plateaus plummeting to an ancient oasis of rock pools teaming with flora and fauna.
