Overview

Highlights

  • Experience the sunset and sunrise over Uluṟu
  • Walk the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuṯa
  • Swag under the stars at Kings Creek Station

Short Description

Rock and roll your way to Uluṟu for the best sunset and sunrise you’ll probably ever see. Swap one natural wonder for another over these five days and see red… in the best possible way with the utterly stunning red rock landscapes. Stargaze, BBQ, hike through canyons and gaze at water holes. This is one Outback trip you won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Itinerary

Day 1

Hit the red ground running as you meet the group and head into Yulara (the gateway resort to Uluru). We're off to visit the sacred monolith itself this afternoon, with a guided walk on the cards. Later, raise a glass of bubbles as we watch the glow of the sunset morph through 50 shades of red. Then: hone your Aussie BBQ skills and cook your own steak (or veggie burger). Welcome to Australia, mate!

Included today:
-Experience sunset at Uluru

Meals:
-Dinner

Day 2

Forgive the early hour, but this is a sunrise you'll want to see (trust us). Later on, we'll get a sense of the immense scale of Uluru with a base walk. Gear up for the optional activities today - we're talking scenic helicopter rides, camel rides and segway tours.

Included today:
-Experience sunrise at Uluru
-Uluru base walk

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Scenic helicopter flights
-Camel ride
-Segway tour

Day 3

After breakfast, get ready for some soul searching - we're off to explore the heart of sacred Kata Tjuta with a walk through the Valley of the Winds. Next: prepare to live the life of a jolly swagman as we bed down in custom swags (think: the ultimate portable sleeping unit) in Kings Creek Station. Keep an eye out for shooting stars, and don't forget to make a wish!

Please be aware that in winter months (May-Sept), nighttime temperatures can drop to near 0 degrees so warmer clothing will be required for the night sleeping in the swag.

Please note that the twin / double / or single upgrade is not applicable to the Overnight Swag Night at Kings Canyon.

Included today:
-Walk the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuta
-Swag under the stars at Kings Creek Station

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 4

Get your hiking boots on! This morning we’ll be tackling the hardest part of the famous Rim Walk in Kings Canyon (aptly named ‘Heart Attack Hill’). Believe us, it’s worth the effort! We’re talking age-old cycads, eroded dome shapes, a visit to The Lost City… and that's not even the best part. The sheltered valley and waterhole of the Garden of Eden will make today even more awesome. After a stop off to grab some lunch, we’ll head back to Alice Springs.

Included today:
-Guided hike of Kings Canyon
-Visit the Garden of Eden

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 5

Back in Alice Springs, we’ll have the chance to explore the town centre. Then: time to say a fond farewell to your travel mates. This is the end of the road (for now).

Meals:
-Breakfast

My husband and I just finished our first Topdeck tour, 2 weeks around Europe!
We loved the tour and the people we got to adventure with, our trip leader Alex, chef Morgan and driver Marian absolutely rocked!
We felt so special having them look after us and couldn't have had more fun if we tried.

I've just finished the Mega European tour with Trip Leader Nicole Smith & Coach Driver Lloyd Spencer. I was incredibly nervous about going on a tour across Europe, but the planning and organisation by our Topdeck Crew made everything stress free. All the driving and walking tours were very informative, with Nicole being able to recall information off the top of her head about the history of all the Countries and Landmarks we visited. Our driver Lloyd took a very professional approach to his work and should be praised for all the effort he puts in. Both Nicole & Lloyd are enthusiastic individuals, who are always able to give great recommendations in every Country we stopped. This trip was absolutely fantastic and will be in my memories for life. A very special thanks to these two and topdeck for such an amazing trip.

I loved my travel experience with Topdeck. Alex was such a wonderful tour leader, she had great recommendations and was super sweet and helpful. Morgan was an excellent cook and always made healthy options for us. I think the food far surpassed my expectations for this trip. Marian was also a great driver! The bus was always clean for us. I had a great time and I would do another top deck trip!

I just finished the Oceanic empires tour and absolutely loved it. This is my second top deck tour in 4 years and it was the best experience again. All the places were amazing and had the best group of people to experience new countries and food with. I would like to make a special mention to Nicole and Lloyd as they were the best and made the trip incredibly fun and memorable. Would recommend to all my friends to do a top deck tour

I booked a topdeck summer fun and sailing tour as a solo! I wasn’t sure what I’d expect as this is the first solo trip I’ve ever taken. Day one I made friends and family for a lifetime as well as a tour guide and driver who Ill never forget! Dan made the tour not just fun and memorable but one where I felt safe. Zolio our driver was like a second dad who made every drive something to look forwards to! I left this trip with new friends and family a big either and a second Dad ! Would highly recommend topdeck and dr dan and zolio 110%
