6 Day Tour of Australia - The Alice and Uluru Tour

This tour takes you to the raw, red heart of Australia, visiting the outback and providing the opportunity to view Uluru.

Day 1: Alice Springs:
Starting from Contiki’s Alice Springs hotel, we take a sightseeing tour of Alice Springs to see the Royal Flying Doctor Base and Anzac Hill Lookout. Just a little further afield we’ll visit Simpson’s Gap and Alice Springs Desert Park. Hotel (D)

Day 2: Alice Springs to Uluru (Ayers Rock):
An opportunity this morning to join an Aboriginal Bush Tucker tour. We then cross the oldest river in the world, the Finke River, before turning onto the Lassiter Highway. Continuing past amazing Mt Connor, we reach the modern Yulara Resort, our accommodation for the next two nights. Watch the sun set and rise over Uluru and explore this world-famous monolith. Lodge (B)

Day 3: Uluru at leisure:
Sunrise and sunset… Uluru National Park and the famous ‘big rock’ await! We’ll watch the amazing warm hues of the Uluru sunrise. Then why not get on a Harley and take in more of the Spinifex plains? Maybe take a scenic flight over the area or challenge the vertical and climb Uluru? We will also visit the excellent Culture Centre housing a display of information on Aboriginal culture. Later, time for a swim and to enjoy a glass of champagne to toast the Uluru sunset. Lodge (B)

Day 4: Uluru to Kings Creek Station:
A last look at Uluru before we drive to the mysterious rock formations known as Kata Tjuta or the Olgas. Hike through the Valley of the Winds or Olga Gorge. This afternoon we’re off to Kings Creek Station adjacent to Watarrka National Park. A chance to explore this working cattle and camel station by quad bikes. Enjoy how food is meant to taste cooked in true outback style, before rolling out your sleeping swag under a blanket of brilliant stars. Outback bush camp (B,D)

Day 5: Kings Creek Station to Alice Springs:
Up early to take in the stunning sights as we wander along the ridge of Kings Canyon and discover the Garden of Eden and the Lost City. Then onwards to Alice Springs. Tonight is our last night together so why not enjoy a ‘drovers blowout’ dinner? Try outback delicacies like crocodile and emu. Hotel (B)

Day 6: Alice Springs -
Auf Weidersehen in Alice: Why not take the opportunity of a lifetime and see the dawn break over the MacDonnell Ranges from a hot air balloon? Or free time to visit Todd Street Mall before our tour finishes mid-morning
