Travel from Alice Springs on your adventure to the 'Red Centre', visiting the Outback Camel Farm on the way. Hear the tale of how camels arrived in Australia to serve as transport for construction and colonization. Take a short camel ride through the bush (at own expense), before traveling to the permanent campsite in Yulara where you are able to explore the 36 magical domes of Kata Tjuta. Then take a 5-mile (8-kilometer) hike through the spectacular Valley of the Winds canyon, home to the mythical cork-tree women and unique flora and fauna. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine as the sun sets over the countryside and the ‘rock’ changes color. A delicious dinner will be awaiting you upon your return to camp.

Fantastic tour - excellent guide, excellent sites, great group, everything very good

Reviewed by: Susan L, October 2014

Excellent tour - our guide was Teagan with Brooke under training. Teagan was one of the best guides we've ever had and made the trip interesting and informative. We loved hearing about her life experiences which enhanced our experience and understanding of the culture. Highly recommended despite having to get up at 4am for the walks!
