DESCRIPTION

Looking to visit the Red Centre and see some of the most incredible sights? This four-day short break tour is the perfect option! Taking you to see Kata Tjuta, Uluru and Kings Canyon in just four days, you’ll walk away with some incredible memories, amazing photos and a new appreciation for the Australian Outback.

On day one of this guided tour, you’ll board your air-conditioned coach to venture out of Alice Springs and into Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The first stop is at a local camel farm where you’ll have the option of riding on these creatures through the desert. You’ll then continue on to Ayers Rock Resort before spending the afternoon at the Olgas exploring the natural attraction and watching the sunset with a glass of sparkling wine in hand.

Day two begins bright and early in order to watch one of the most beautiful sights on offer, sunrise at Uluru. After the sky has transformed from its hues of yellow and orange and many photos have been snapped, you’ll make your way to Walpa Gorge where you can spend time exploring the grounds and their unusual rock formations. In the afternoon, you’ll embark on a guided journey along the Kuniya Walk to visit the Mutitjulu Waterhole to see ancient rock art and learn about the history of the region and its traditional land owners.

You’ll end the day at Uluru once again, to watch the sunset – another incredible sight – with nibbles and sparkling wine to enjoy. After the sun has set, the fun continues with dinner at an exclusive venue under the stars. Dinner consists of a range of delicious choices, including steak, lamb sausages, garlic prawns, salad, and of course, dessert.

Come day three, you’ll embark on a leisurely and scenic journey to the famous Kings Canyon to spend the night. On the last day of your short break in the Australian Outback, you’ll climb the rim of the canyon, or walk around the base if you’re not up for the challenge, before travelling to Alice Springs to say goodbye.

A great way to get a snapshot of some of the Northern Territory’s best attractions, you can book your 4-day short break to Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon online here.
