Get ready for an awesome eight-day adventure that kicks off at 2 pm! We’ll meet up with our Storyteller Guide in front of the Desert Gardens Hotel. After some hellos and high-fives, we’ll head over to the Cultural Centre in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. We’ll have a great introduction into the amazing culture of the local Anangu people.

We’ll learn a bit about these stories and the Anangu culture from exhibits and talks with Anangu and park rangers.

After we set up camp, we’re in for a treat! We’ll go to this viewing platform to watch Uluru at sunset. It’s normally magical watching the colours change as the sun goes down. And then, we’ll have our first campfire dinner! We’ll get to know everyone while we eat yummy food. And after that, we’ll roll out our Aussie swags and sleep under the stars for the first time. It will be a night to remember!

2. Uluru

Read More

Today we start with a breathtaking (maybe that was a yawn?) sunrise over Uluru! The colours of the rocks change as the sun comes up – it’s like magic!

Then, we’re getting up close and personal with Uluru. This rock is huge – 348 meters tall and super, super old at 550 million years old! You can feel its power as soon as you see it! We’ll do a guided walk all around the base where we’ll see tranquil waterholes, chill under a big Sheoak tree, peek into hidden caves and learn about Uluru’s stories!

After all that walking, we’ll take a break for lunch and then head to the Cultural Centre to learn even more about Uluru and the park. We’ll hear about the Anangu culture and the environment of the park from exhibits and talks with Anangu and park rangers.

In the afternoon, get ready for something super fun – a dot painting workshop with a local Anangu artist! We’ll learn about ancient symbols and words in the local language, Pitjantjatjara. Then, we’ll make our own artwork to take home – how cool is that?

Later on, we’ll head back to camp for some free time. We can chill by the pool or check out some activities at Ayers Rock Resort, like a didgeridoo performance or a guided garden walk. Dinner tonight is gonna be tasty!

This morning, we’re leaving Yulara and heading towards Watarrka National Park and Kings Canyon. But before we get there, get ready for another wild moment as Kata Tjuta comes into view. Standing tall at 546 meters above the ground, this place is seriously sacred in the Red Centre. The Anangu call it Kata Tjuta, which means ‘Many Heads’ in Pitjantjatjara. It’s all tied up with loads of ancient Indigenous stories about how the world was made. We’ll go on this epic guided walk called the Valley of the Winds, surrounded by nature with wallabies bouncing around and wildflowers everywhere, walking between the big domes of Kata Tjuta.

Later today, we’ll roll into our camp at Kings Creek Station. There’s free time until dinner – just take it easy and enjoy the downtime.

Read More

Get ready for an early start this morning ’cause we’re diving into the epic Kings Canyon Rim Walk! It’s seriously gonna blow your mind – with those massive 300-meter-high walls of sandstone, hidden waterholes, and lush fern forests, Watarrka National Park is like finding an oasis in the middle of Australia.

We’ll soak in the insane 360-degree views and trek through Priscilla’s Crack – you know, that spot from the movie Priscilla Queen of the Desert? Then, we’ll check out the Lost City with its cool sandstone domes and the Garden of Eden, this lush oasis with greenery and a watering hole.

After all that walking, it’s time to chill and hop on a long drive across the Northern Territory and South Australian border. But don’t worry, we’ll make plenty of stops along the way before we hit up Coober Pedy, the Opal Capital of the World! It’s so hot there that most of the town is underground – how cool is that? We’ll crash in this rad underground bunkhouse tonight and you’ll have some free time to explore and grab dinner at one of the many spots in town. Today’s a biggie, covering about 760 km, so get ready for an adventure!

5. Coober Pedy to William Creek

Read More

After we chow down on breakfast, we’re off to the Umoona Opal Mine and Museum. It’s gonna be so rad – we’ll learn all about how both Aboriginal and European peeps settled in the area, see how the old miners used to live, and even try our luck at ‘noodling’ for opals!

Then, get ready for some serious cuteness ’cause we’re hanging out with some rescued joeys at Josephine’s Gallery and Kangaroo Orphanage, and the gallery there is insane – they’ve got heaps of cool Aboriginal art and artifacts from some of the most famous Indigenous artists in Australia. We’ll have some time to check it all out before we hit the road again.

Next stop – we’re leaving the fancy sealed roads behind and diving into the wilds as we head to one of the most remote towns in the world, William Creek. On the way, we’ll pass through Anna Creek Station, which is the biggest cattle station in the world, we’ll cruise past Lake Cadibarrawirracanna, which has the longest name of any lake in the world! (we are ticking off items on our Big Things list today).

Once we roll into town, we’ll set up camp and grab a hearty counter meal at the William Creek Hotel. And then, it’s time to snuggle up in our swags and count shooting stars as we drift off to sleep. It’s gonna be epic!

Read More

Today, we’re going off the grid, cruising along a section of the legendary Oodnadatta Track – one of Australia’s wildest roads. Picture this: eerie lunar-like landscapes stretching out as far as the eye can see. Along the way, we’ll stumble upon some real gems like the trippy Mutonia Sculpture Park and Lake Eyre, the biggest salt lake in all of Australia.

We’ll refuel with some lunch at one of those quirky outback towns we’ll pass through before we get to Willow Springs Station in the Flinders Ranges. This place is massive – 70,000 acres of working sheep station, bush camping spots, hiking trails, natural springs, and even Aboriginal rock etchings.

Now, here’s the kicker – the Flinders Ranges is famous for having some of the clearest skies in the Southern Hemisphere. So, for the next couple of nights, get ready for front-row seats to one heck of a light show. We’ll kick back after dinner by the campfire, then roll out our swags under a blanket of stars spread across the ancient landscape. It’s gonna be unreal, spending the night gazing up at the Milky Way and playing connect-the-dots with the constellations.

Get ready to be blown away by millions upon millions of years of geological awesomeness! We’re talking ancient gorges begging to be explored and stunning sights at every twist and turn. So lace up those hiking boots and let’s hit the trails! We’ll wander through towering river red gums and pines, check out waterholes, and even stumble upon a cool old ruined homestead. And trust me, the views from up there? Absolutely mind-blowing!

We’re all about giving back today, so there’s a chance to get involved in some rad conservation work. It’ll depend on what needs doing, but it’s all about giving Mother Nature a little love.

Alright, guys, it’s our last morning together, so let’s make it count! After we fuel up with our final breakfast, it’s time to pack up our swags one last time and hit the Arkaroo Rock Trail. This trail’s gonna blow your mind with its killer views over the Chace Range. Plus, Arkaroo Rock itself is seriously special – it’s a big deal for the Adnyamathanha people, with some seriously cool rock art telling the Yura Muda, their Dreaming or creation story of Ikara.

We’ll refuel with a picnic lunch before heading to Alligator Gorge in the Southern Flinders Ranges. This spot, nestled in Mount Remarkable National Park, is the perfect way to wrap up our tour. And hey, our last leg of the journey will take us through the gorgeous Clare Valley wine region before we roll into Adelaide around 6 pm. It’s been one heck of a ride!
