Adelaide to Alice Springs
With an early start, we head north through one of Australiaâ€™s oldest wine regions, the Clare Valley. We enter the Southern Flinders Ranges and after lunch hike Dutchmanâ€™s Stern for stunning views of the Spencer Gulf and surrounding ranges and plains. Tonight we camp, amongst the redgum trees of Stony Creek
After breakfast we head to Coober Pedy, home to 80% of the worldâ€™s opal and a landscape a lot like Mars. We take a tour of a mine and check out some of the townâ€™s unique underground attractions. Tonight we sleep like the locals â€“ underground, in bunkhouse accommodation at the Umoona Opal Mine.
We head towards Uluru with our new Desert Patrol group. On arrival we set up camp at the Ayers Rock Resort Campground and go out for our first Uluru sunset. Nothing really prepares you for The Rock â€“ itâ€™s awesome
After another fantastic breakfast we enjoy a walk around the base of Uluru and spend time learning about the Aboriginal people at the Cultural Centre. We return to the campground for lunch and spend the rest of day soaking up the magic of Uluru.
Up with the birds for breakfast, today itâ€™s at Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). We hike the majestic Valley of the Winds with its incredibly ancient rock formations. Lunch is at the campground, with a departure for the bar and swimming pool at Kings Creek Station â€˜just down the roadâ€™
We walk Watarrka (Kings Canyon) to experience the fantastic views of the gorge, huge sandstone walls and the immense canyon floor. The cool water hole in the Garden of Eden is just so special. After lunch we cruise into Alice Springs.
