Show / hide full Day by Day Itinerary

Included Flight to Alice Springs

Adelaide travellers: A transfer will meet you to take you from your home to the Adelaide Airport in time for your flight to Alice Springs.

Other travellers: Your journey begins with a flight from your homeport to Darwin.

Day 1 – Arrive in Alice Springs

Welcome to Alice Springs! A transfer will meet you on arrival to take you to your hotel.

❱ 2 nights: Crowne Plaza Alice Springs Lasseters or similar

Day 2 – Alice Springs Town Tour

★ Learn how the town of Alice Springs has evolved into the central hub of the Australian outback.

Visit historical sites and some of the essential services delivered from Alice to the community of this vast region. The traditional custodians of the land are the Arrernte people, who refer to Alice as ‘Mpwante’.

★ Visit the Alice Springs Reptile Centre, home to the largest reptile display in Central Australia.

Have lots of fun, particularly during the show and if you’re game, try the supervised handling session.

Day 3 – Alice Springs to Uluru

★ Travel from Alice Springs to Uluru and take in the rugged desert landscapes of the region, passing through the beautiful MacDonnell Ranges.

Learn the natural and geological history of the region, as well as the unique Australian desert flora and fauna, and hear about the traditional customs and beliefs of the local Aboriginals. View flat-topped Atila (Mt Conner) in the distance, before exploring the amazing World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Arrive in Uluru in the early afternoon before enjoying time at leisure to settle into your hotel.

❱ 3 nights: Sails in the Desert Hotel, Ayers Rock Resort

Day 4 – Day at leisure at Uluru

Enjoy a full day at leisure to enjoy the many activities on offer at Ayers Rock Resort. A range of free garden walks & indigenous cultural activities are available each day – ask your hotel’s reception for more details.

★ OPTIONAL SIGHTSEEING ADD-ON at Uluru (Days 3 & 4)

Add this sightseeing package to your stay in Uluru for an extra $175 per person!

Kata Tjuta Sunset Viewing Tour (Day 3): Travel to the inspiring red-hued sedimentary rock domes of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) to watch the sunset. Kata Tjuta is thought to have originally been one huge piece of rock, much like Uluru, that has weathered over millions of years to become an intriguing series of individual formations. As evening approaches, each passing minute brings something new as the domes continue to change colour with the setting sun.

Uluru Guided Walk & Sunset Viewing Tour (Day 4): Travel around the base of Uluru with a local Driver Guide. Learn about the native flora, fauna and intriguing cultural traditions of traditional owners, the Anangu, and discover an array of fascinating sacred sites. Join your Driver Guide for a walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole. You’ll explore a number of caves and view Aboriginal rock paintings as your Guide interprets their meaning and significance. Later, travel to the Uluru sunset viewing area, ‘Sunset Strip’. Relax with a glass of wine and Nibbles as the sun sets over the western horizon and the evening sky brings out the many shades of colour for which Uluru is renowned.

Day 5 – Field of Light at Sunrise

★ Wake up early today for a tour of the spectacular Field of Light display at Uluru.

Internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro is noted for his immersive site-specific installations that employ light to evoke emotional response, often in an outdoor context and on a monumental scale. His Field of Light, inspired by a trip to Uluru over 27 years ago, is installed in a remote desert area within sight of majestic Uluru. It is his largest installation to date, with Munro and his team installing more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted glass spheres. It is truly a magical sight to behold.

Arriving in complete darkness, you will be able to enjoy the 50,000 globes of light in the desert, before making your way up the hill to the Field of Light sunrise viewing platform.

Enjoy a tea, coffee or hot chocolate as the sun starts to creep light throughout the sky and then watch in awe as it pops up in the distance behind Uluru, flooding the landscape, including Kata Tjuta behind you, with light. As the natural light brightens the landscape, the Field of Light will dim for the day. Enjoy some amazing photos from this unique raised location that allows you to view both Kata Tjuta and Uluru in all their natural glory.

The rest of your day is at leisure at Ayers Rock Resort. Ask us about a range of optional sightseeing experiences such as camel rides, guided walks & sunrise tours or simply relax at your hotel.

Day 6 – Uluru to Alice Springs

★ After a relaxing start to your day, travel through desert scenery from Ayers Rock Resort back to Alice Springs.

Enjoy comprehensive commentary of your surrounds as you pass through the rugged outback. Stop at Erldunda Roadhouse where there is the opportunity to purchase afternoon tea (own expense). Travel North along the Stuart Highway before arriving at Alice Springs.

❱ 1 night: Crowne Plaza Alice Springs Lasseters or similar
