Day :1

Location : Yulara / Kings Canyon

Welcome to Australia’s Red Centre! Your family adventure kicks off in Yulara – set in the heart of the outback, this tiny town is your gateway to the wonders of Uluru and Kings Canyon. Meet your local leader and the other families joining you on your adventure at 1.30pm, then it’s time to head to Kings Canyon (approximately 4 hours). Settle into camp on arrival, then gather for a meeting to find out what lies ahead on your journey, as well as a 'Welcome to Country' ceremony honouring the Luritja people. Later enjoy an included dinner around the campfire under the starlit sky.

Day :2

Location : Kings Canyon / Uluru / Yulara

After breakfast this morning, head out to soak in the remarkable scenery of Kings Canyon (Watarrka) during a walk along Kings Creek (approximately 1-2 hours). With soaring cliffs on both sides and ethereal rock formations, the sights here are sure to amaze the whole family. After your walk, travel to the edge of Watarrka National Park to learn more about the First Nations culture of the region. Meet with local guides who will provide insight into the food, art, medicine and languages of the Luritja peoples, leaving your family with a greater understanding of their way of life. Return to Yulara, then make your way to Australia’s most spiritually significant and iconic site, Uluru. From a prime viewing location, enjoy the view as the sun sets over the epic sandstone monolith – watching the incredible landscape shift in colour is a sight you won’t soon forget! This evening, tuck into an included barbecue dinner, and if weather permits you can then swap stories around a campfire under the stars.

Day :3

Location : Kata Tjuta / Uluru / Yulara

This morning, head out to Kata Tjuta (also known as 'The Olgas'), a towering collection of 36 domed rock formations – these rust-coloured beauties are truly one of Australia’s most impressive sights! The best way to explore the otherworldly landscape is on foot, so set off on the Walpa Gorge Walk. Sandstone cliffs rise high above as you continue through the gorge, shrouded by shadows and full of First Nations history. Be sure to keep an eye out for super cute wallabies hopping about as you walk! Return to Uluru and join an Anangu guide for a walk to the beautiful Mutitjulu Waterhole at the base of rock. Your guide will explain what makes this waterhole sacred while sharing stories of the incredible landscape and its connection to the Anangu people. Afterwards, stop by the cultural centre to learn about the spiritual and cultural importance of Uluru and its surrounds. This evening you’ll have the option to visit the Field of Light, an enormous art installation that illuminates the landscape with 50,000 stems of light.

Day :4

Location : Uluru / Yulara

Start the day early in one of the best ways imaginable – watching a spectacular sunrise over Uluru. Set off on the 10km walk around the base of Uluru with your local leader as the sun climbs over the landscape. Your adventure comes to an end after breakfast this morning.
