Day 1

Welcome to South Australia! We know flying days can be a lot of effort and with people arriving at different times, we’ll be spending the first night in Adelaide so you can relax and recharge before an incredible 10 days ahead.

Check into your hostel from 2pm and later that afternoon say hello to your Welcome to Travel host who’ll be joining you and your fellow group travellers for a meet & greet presentation. We’ll be giving you a run down of everything to expect from the week, as well as a chance for you to get to know the group you’ll be spending the best week of your life with!

After the meet & greet, you’ll head out for dinner together and get an early night ready for tomorrow’s adventures…

Day 2

Today we will be exploring Adelaide and everything it has to offer! Whilst you’re getting to know your new travel family.

First thing on the agenda will be Mount Lofty in the Adelaide Hills! Picture panoramic views across Adelaide’s city skyline. On a clear day you can see as far as Kangaroo Island! Next we will be venturing into Hahndorf, a small town with strong German heritage. Take some time to enjoy German food as well as a Wine Tasting session from a nearby vineyard.

In the afternoon we’ll stop at South Australia’s favourite beachside suburb, Glenelg. This spot is famous for its wide beach, stunning sunsets and buzzing vibe. Take a dip in the sea or make your way back to the hostel for some chill time.

Tonight will be a free evening for you and travel buddies to spend as you wish, whether that be grabbing a drink, having a little shopping session or getting an early night for tomorrow’s adventure!

Flinders Ranges

Day 3

After a lovely couple days in Adelaide, we will begin our journey north! Today we will be arriving in Southern Flinders Ranges for a morning hike at Alligator Gorge. Located in Mount Remarkable National Park, think dramatic scenery, incredible canyons and beautiful wildlife!

After lunch we’ll stroll around Quorn, famous for the Pichi Richi Railway and later arrive at Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park for another hike at Arkaroo Rock, a significant cultural site for the local Adnyamathanha people. We’ll experience a Welcome to Country in the Adnyamathanha people’s language at Wilpena Pound Resort, giving you a unique opportunity to feel more connected to Australia and nature.

We’ll set up camp at Skytrek Willow Springs Station and for tonight’s event, we’ll enjoy front row seats to one of the most spectacular light shows on Earth! The Flinders Ranges is famed as having some of the Southern Hemisphere’s clearest skies. So roll out your swag under a blanket of stars twinkling over the ancient landscape.

Flinders Ranges

Day 4

This morning, we will experience more of this amazing park as we pull on our hiking boots for a morning hike through tall river red gums and past waterholes, you’ll have to take a moment to take in the views! After the hike, you’ll meet with a Park Ranger to learn about the conservation efforts taken within Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park and have an opportunity to take part in some yourself!

After lunch, we’ll take a magical scenic drive through Brachina Gorge. We’ll celebrate a full day of activities with a well-deserved drink at an iconic country pub before returning to camp to relax and have dinner.

William Creek & Lake Eyre

Day 5

Today we’ll be heading off the beaten path and travelling through one of Australia’s most iconic, unsealed roads, the Oodnadatta Track. The desert scenery will feel eerie and moonlike as the landscape uncovers highlights like Australia’s largest salt lake, Lake Eyre and the Mutonia Sculpture Park. We’ll also head through Anna Creek Station, the world’s largest working cattle station. Covering an area of six million acres, it is equivalent to the size of Belgium!

By the afternoon, we’ll arrive in the tiny outback settlement of William Creek for the night. In the middle of nowhere, on the way to somewhere, this quirky town with a population of ten is an icon of the South Australian Outback!

Coober Pedy

Day 6

After your night in quirky William Creek, we’ll head to the famous underground town of Coober Pedy. Around 150 million years ago, Coober Pedy was covered by ocean – and when the water receded, the sandy silica minerals from the seabed flowed into the rocky cracks and cavities and solidified over time into multi-coloured gem-stone – opal!

We’ll have some free time to explore the opal capital and later on, we’ll visit a Kangaroo Orphanage (how cute!?) and Josephine’s Gallery, a world-class Aboriginal Art Gallery with an extensive range of Aboriginal artefacts and significant works by many of Australia’s best-known Indigenous artists.

It would be wrong to head to the Opal capital and not experience an opal-cutting demonstration right?! At the Umoona Opal Mine & Museum, we’ll go ‘noodling’ or fossicking and learn more about these precious gemstones.

To finish another epic day, we’ll head to the Aboriginal Heritage site, The Kanku-Breakaways Conservation Park, for mesmerising scenery of the Moon Plains. This evening, we’ll be staying in a unique underground bunkhouse with some free time for you to explore and grab dinner at one of the many underground eateries.

Kings Creek

Day 7

This morning we will carry on our journey north, past the Dingo Fence and Breakaways Reserve and finally cross over into The Northern Territory! We’ll arrive at Watarrka National Park and this is the time to get your phones out for an iconic spotting of King Canyon!

After a long day of driving, we’ll arrive at our campsite at the Kings Creek Station where you’ll have the rest of the afternoon to relax, take in your surroundings and enjoy a swim in the pool! Keep those cameras ready though for a stunning desert sunset viewpoint before dinner, you won’t be disappointed…

Kings Canyon

Day 8

Rise and shine campers!! It’s an early start this morning, but we promise it’ll be one of the most magical experiences of your life. The Kings Canyon Rim Walk is truly one of the most spectacular walks, with its 300-metre-high sandstone walls, hidden waterholes, fern forests, chasms, canyons and caverns, Watarrka National Park is central Australia’s answer to an oasis. Take in the 360-degree views and journey through Priscilla’s Crack and see the sandstone domes known as the Lost City as well as the greenery and watering hole in the Garden of Eden.

After a long morning, rest your legs as we drive to our final destination, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Get ready for another epic, unforgettable sunset over Uluru before retreating to camp for dinner.

Day 9

You can’t be in Uluru and not witness at least one sunrise! Together we will wake up and soak up the first rays of the day, watching the sunlight play with the landscape and the rock formations changing colour throughout the morning.

We’ll then get closer to the natural wonder on a guided 10km Uluru base walk (shorter walks available), allowing you to connect with the rock, it’s powerful presence and learn more about its stories. Relax beside tranquil waterholes, take a break under a magnificent Sheoak tree and peer into hidden caves (can it get any better than this?!)

After lunch, we’ll visit the Culture Centre to deepen your understanding of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. You can learn about Anangu culture and the park’s natural environment through exhibits and free presentations with Anangu and park rangers. Return to camp for some free time. Why not, relax by the pool or enjoy some of the activities at Ayers Rock Resort, such as a didgeridoo performance, a guided garden walk or discovering artefacts at the museum.

As the tour ends tomorrow, don’t forget to bring your tissues. We’ll share a final farewell dinner and reminisce on the best 10 days of your life. You’ve gone out of your comfort zone, you’ve seen and experienced new things, you’ve got amazing memories but most importantly, you’ve now got friends for life!

Kata Tjuta

Day 10

Yes, today is the last day of the tour. No, let’s not talk about that just yet **grabs tissues**

Another early start is calling, this morning we will be watching a spellbinding Kata Tjuta sunrise. Translating to the Pitjantjatjara word for ‘Many Heads’, the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta are a defining feature of the Red Centre landscape. Rising 546 metres above the surrounding plain, its tip is the highest point for miles, while the site’s ridges and ravines are closely connected with numerous Indigenous creation-time stories. Many of these stories are kept secret from outsiders, but you’ll learn a little about the local Anangu culture and appreciate the beauty of their land.

Ok now it’s time for the dreaded goodbyes, whilst your outback adventure might end here, we’ll all have memories to last a lifetime!

For those departing from Uluru Airport, complimentary transfers are available from the resort. There are also bus transfers from Yulara to Alice Springs.
