4 Day Red Centre Kings Canyon West MacDonnell from Alice Springs

4 Day Red Centre Kings Canyon West MacDonnell from Alice Springs

Four days, exploring four iconic locations (Uluru, Kings Canyon, Kata Tjuta and Tjoritja West MacDonnell Ranges) all wrapped up in one tour. This small group adventure encompasses the very best the Red Centre has to offer. There is a very good reason why Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.  In 1987, the international community recognized the park's spectacular geological formations, rare plants, and exceptional natural beauty. A few of the highlights include exploring Ormiston Gorge, Ochre Pits and Ellery Creek Big Hole, hiking through the Valley of the Winds or Walpa Gorge, and exploring Mutitjulu Waterhole, Kuniya Piti, and Kantju Gorge.

We provide two different sleeping options at our permanent campsites, with twin share safari tents, or you can try out a traditional swag experience. (canvas-covered bedroll)

This tour starts and finishes in Alice Springs only, please advise us of your accommodation at the time of booking.


Day 1: Day 1: Alice Springs to Ayers Rock (Uluru)

Stop At: Alice Springs, Alice Springs, Red Centre, Northern Territory
On our way to Ayers Rock from Alice Springs, we stop off at the Mt Connor lookout (false Uluru) for a view of the mighty red mountain and Curtin Springs for a toilet stop before turning in to our campground for lunch. Following lunch, we make our way to the Aboriginal cultural centre of the Red Centre. Cultural, ecological, historical, and geological aspects of this park are fascinating to learn about. We are blown away by Uluru's sheer size and magnificence after a short drive, which we are able to experience up close and personal for the first time. We visit sacred rock art sites and hear creation stories of Kuniya and Liru during our base walk to Kuniya Piti.  During our journey through Kantju Gorge, we visit sacred sites, the highest waterfalls in Central Australia, an elders' cave, and one of the world's oldest pantry.  We retreat to the panoramic viewpoint in the afternoon for one of the most stunning sunsets on earth after seeing the world's largest rock up close and personal.

In the morning we wake up early and have a light breakfast before heading to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park for a spectacular sunrise. When you think Uluru couldn't get any more majestic than it already is, you just can't help but think when you approach Kata Tjuta, with its stunning silhouette, that it could get any more stunning. Here, we embark on a hiking adventure through the Valley of the Winds or Walpa Gorge admiring the mighty conglomerate rock formations along the way. In the afternoon we move away from Kata Tjuta to the Kings Canyon region so that we can enjoy a magnificent outback sunset followed by a hearty meal around the campfire after a day exploring Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park.

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.
