Australia’s Red Centre is the wild heart of the Aussie outback, but its vastness and remote location make it impossible to take in everything on a one day. With this multi-day tour, you explore farther afield and experience an unforgettable outback adventure. Camp out beneath the desert stars, trek to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and Kings Canyon, and watch sunrise and sunset over mystical Uluru.

Navigating the vastness of Australia’s outback is a daunting task, even for the most experienced travelers.

Plus, unlike other conventional Ayers Rock tours, you’ll enjoy a sunset Aussie barbecue overlooking Uluru.
