OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES A selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travellers are listed in the day-to-day itinerary. This isn't an exhaustive list and should be used as a guide only for some of what might be available. Prices are approximate, are for entrance fees only, and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability, and maybe on a join-in basis. It may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. When it's recommended that travellers pre-book these activities, look for a note in the Special Information section of the day-to-day itinerary. For most, they can either be organised independently on the day, or let your group leader or local representative know you are interested at the Welcome Meeting and they can assist. Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high-risk activities not listed above have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and group leader or local representative are unable to assist you with organising these activities. Activities that contravene our Responsible Travel policies are also not listed. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk. ITINERARY CHANGES Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It's important that you review this information prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays, political unrest or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in-country. Your group leader or local representative will keep you up to date with any such changes once your trip is underway. ABORIGINAL & TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER CULTURAL EXPERIENCES & COMMUNITIES First Nations people have complex community obligations, and at times activities or experiences may be cancelled at late notice due to cultural commitments. In the case that we are unable to include planned activities with First Nations communities, we will endeavour to find a suitable alternative in the same or another destination on your trip.

Day 1 - Alice Springs / Kings Canyon
Welcome to Australia’s Red Centre! Your adventure kicks off bright and early with a Welcome Meeting at 8 am in Alice Springs (Mparntwe in the language of the traditional owners of the land on which Alice Springs is now located). Alice Springs is the perfect place to start our journey into the ancient culture and landscapes of Australia’s Red Centre and acts as a launching pad to reach some of Australia’s most incredible landscapes. We’ll hit the open road en route to Watarrka National Park soon after our welcome meeting, you can expect the drive to be framed by the rusty red landscape, and you might catch glimpses of native wildlife like kangaroos from your window. With a quick stop in Erldunda to pick up lunch, you’ll arrive at our campsite near Kings Canyon later in the afternoon. You’ll have some time to settle in, before joining your newfound travel companions for dinner at the resort restaurant, to kick off your Red Centre adventure.
Day 2 - Kings Canyon
After breakfast this morning, head out to soak in the remarkable scenery of Watarrka National Park during a walk around the rim of Kings Canyon. With soaring cliffs and ethereal rock formations, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more magical place. The walk starts with a difficult climb to the top of the canyon to take in unrivalled views before descending through the Lost City, a series of natural sandstone domes resembling ancient ruins, the remnants of eons of weathering. Continue down to the Garden of Eden, named for its lush greenery that stands in contrast to the rest of the arid landscape. After your walk, you’ll head back to camp to refuel with a picnic lunch. This afternoon, you’ll enjoy an Aboriginal cultural experience – where you’ll learn about bush tucker (including the Witchetty Grub), bush medicine and the history of dot painting from local First Nations guides. This is a true, authentic experience and something you won’t soon forget.
Day 3 - Kata Tjuta / Uluru / Yulara
This morning, we’ll pack up and head out to Kata Tjuta (formerly 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. Here, you’ll tuck into a picnic lunch at the Kata Tjuta sunset area – talk about a meal with a view – before embarking on the Walpa Gorge walk. This walk takes you between two of the stunning red-domed rock formations that make up Kata Tjuta. On one side of the gorge, Mount Olga stands proudly towering above the track below – giving you a real sense of just how incredible this place is. After your walk, you'll make your way to one of Australia’s most spiritually significant and iconic sites, Uluru. From a prime viewing location, you’ll 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! To show respect for Uluru’s cultural and spiritual significance to the Anangu people we do not serve alcohol during our sunset viewing. This evening, tuck into an included dinner. Depending on the time of year this will be either before or after the sunset viewing.
Day 4 - Uluru / Yulara (or Alice Springs)
Start the day early in one of the best ways imaginable – watching a spectacular sunrise over Uluru. Set off on the Kuniya Walk with your leader as the sun climbs over the landscape and walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole. Your Leader will explain what makes this waterhole sacred and its connection to the Anangu people. Afterward, stop by the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre to continue immersing yourself in First Nations culture. Then, make our way back to Yulara at which time your Outback Adventure will come to an end. If you are flying out of Alice Springs you can remain on the vehicle as your leader will be heading back into town. Arrival back in Alice Springs is in the early evening.
