DAY 1 (Lunch, Dinner)

After picking you up from your accommodation in Alice Springs bright and early at 5.45am, there's time for introductions and a chat while we finalise ticketing and hit the road for five fantastic days of adventure and fun.

The first part of the day is spent driving to Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park with a few stops along the way for refreshments, a camel ride or a chance to purchase some Aboriginal paintings or artifacts. We break for lunch at our bush camp, situated amongst desert oak trees at the base of a large sand dune within Ayers Rock Resort.

The afternoon is devoted to enjoying the sites of Uluru, including a full base walk or a chance to climb if you wish. We'll also visit the Cultural Centre where you can learn about the Tjukurpa (Aboriginal law / religion).

It's then time to view the magnificent sunset on Uluru accompanied with a glass or two of sparkling wine before returning to the campsite for a delicious meal, a couple of drinks and time to sit back to contemplate the day's events.

DAY 2 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

After watching the sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta from a lookout close to our campsite, it's breakfast and off to Kata Tjuta for an 8km hike through the magnificent "Valley of the Winds". After a leisurely lunch and a stop at the Resort for fuel and supplies, we head to Curtin Springs Cattle Station.

Arriving in mid afternoon, there's plenty of time to get a close look at a working cattle station before we travel to Kings Creek Station for our second nights bush camp. Our campsite at Kings Creek is miles from the crowds, which is where the feeling of Wayoutback really starts to take hold. After a campfire dinner it's time to kick back and be mesmerised by the millions of stars on display.
