Alice Springs

Meet your Contiki crew and go on a tour of the Outback's unofficial capital, 'The Alice', famous for its remote location, its Aussie characters & its reputation as the national hub for Aboriginal art. Visit ANZAC Hill lookout, Alice Springs Reptile Center, the important Aboriginal cultural site of Simpson's Gap & West MacDonnell National Park. You'll also get to see Alice Springs Telegraph Station. We kick off the afternoon with a hand on expereince at the Alice Springs Reptile Center where you hear about some of Australia's the unique Outback reptiles, and if your brave enough, hold a python. Tonight you'll get to know your fellow travellers over dinner

Alice Springs to Kings Creek Station

Jump start the day by learning about surviving in the bush with our included Aboriginal 'Bushtucker' tour. Our expert Aboriginal Guide will fill you in on the dos and don'ts of life in the bush, and you'll even get to taste insects and plants if you're adventurous. Next up, Kings Creek Station. This working camel & cattle station serves up a real outback experience. Tonight, 'go bush' and sleep under the open sky at our overnight bush camp where you'll see the desert sky light up with thousands of stars.

Kings Creek Station to Uluru

Today we make tracks to Ulu?u! We drive by ancient (700 million years old!) Mt. Connor for 360° views over the red desert and take a walk through Ulu?u's neighbour - Kata Tju?a, or 'The Olgas' - before arriving at Yulara Resort. This environmentally designed resort is all about the outback and has a pool for you to cool off in after the drive.

Uluru

Start off the morning nice and early and watch the sun rise over this iconic natural wonder from the viewing area. Get familiar with Ulu?u when your Tour Manager takes you around its base and gives you the background of the spiritual significance of this site for Aboriginal people. For something different, choose an optional Harley Davidson ride or scenic flight. Tonight, catch the sun set over the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ulu?u (Ayers Rock), and grab some nibbles and bubbly to toast this amazing view.

Uluru to Alice Springs

It's an easy-going start to the day today. Your Tour Manager will cook up a storm for breakfast, so load up on bacon & eggs! We swing by a traditional Australian roadhouse, and then pull back into Alice Springs. Tonight, join the group for an optional dinner at the Overlander Steakhouse, where you can try out kangaroo, crocodile, camel & steak while listening to Aussie folk songs.

Alice Springs

Start your last day on tour with an unforgettable experience. Get above it all in an optional hot air balloon ride over the red MacDonnell Ranges at dawn. Enjoy a bird's eye view over these stunning, massive rock formations. Our tour ends after breakfast and it's time to say goodbye to your new friends and Contiki crew.
