THE JOURNEY

Alice Springs Kings Creek Station
Your Red Centre discovery tour departs Alice Springs. We travel directly to Kings Canyon via the famous West MacDonnell Ranges & Mereenie Loop Road. Along the way we visit Ellery Ck Big hole for a swim, Orminston Gorge for lunch and we stop in at Gosses Bluff, The oldest meteorite site on the planet.

Sit back and enjoy the 3 hour drive down the Mareenie Loop Rd and watch the desert roll by. Arrival into Kings Creek Station late in the afternoon.

Kings Canyon -Uluru -Kata Tjuta
An early start as we drive on into Kings Canyon by 8:00am. There is a choice of walks to be done here, either do the spectacular guided rim walk for which we allow 4 hours to complete or enjoy some short walks into the creek bed at the bottom of the canyon. The rim walk, which is a tough terrain walk and is subject to weather forecast, starts with a difficult climb; so you should only walk it if you are fit and healthy. The walk ascends to the top of the canyon and follows the rim around before descending to the car park. About halfway along is the Garden of Eden, a beautiful Rockhole surrounded by rare plants and birds diving into the waterhole.

We depart after a hard-earned morning tea and drive 330km to Uluru. Lunch is by Mt Connor en route. We head into Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park for a leisurely drive around the rock and prepare for sunset drinks. After Sunset we deliver you to the Field of Lights departure point for your evening tour.

Uluru – Airport or Return to Alice
A very early start as we head out to Uluru for a sunrise breakfast followed with a private bike tour of the sacred sites around the base of Uluru. After morning tea, we depart for Kata Tjuta to stroll into Walpa gorge. Walpa means windy, so named for the refreshing winds that pass through the gorge.

The rocky track gently rises to a small track, passing rare plants and ending at a grove of spearwood trees. Depending on the weather, you may come across a small stream running through the landscape. Walk within the sheer walls and experience this amazing landscape. Walpa Gorge is part of the Kata Tjuta area, a sacred men’s site. After a picnic lunch we depart for the Uluru Airport or return to Alice Springs by 5:30pm
