6-Day Adelaide to Alice Springs Small Group Adventure including Ayers Rock Kings Canyon and Coober Pedy
US$684.81
Overview
Even a full day or two spent exploring the vast Australian outback isn’t enough—there are too many natural attractions and open spaces. Make sure you see enough of the desert by taking a 6-day excursion through the outback from Adelaide to Alice Springs. See Flinders Ranges, Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata-Tjuta (The Olgas), visit a Kangaroo Orphanage, and a ton more.
What to Expect
Day 1  Adelaide - Wilmington
We start our adventure traveling through the vineyards of the Clare Valley wine region, but soon enough we’re heading into the rugged Outback through the historic town of Melrose, gateway to the Flinders Ranges. We enjoy an easy stroll through the awesome Alligator Gorge. We’ll then settle in the heart of the Southern Flinders Ranges for the night.

Day 2  Wilmington - Coober Pedy
Along the way to Coober Pedy – the Opal Capital of the World – you’ll notice the incredible changing landscapes. Wildlife will scatter as road trains thunder across a landscape that resembles Mars or the Moon. On a tour of an underground Opal Mine and Museum, you’ll learn about the history of Coober Pedy. A highlight for some is visiting Josephine’s Kangaroo Orphanage, where you can meet the rescued kangaroos and baby joeys and admire (or buy) Aboriginal art. Tonight, we sleep like the locals do – underground, in bunkhouse accommodation.

Day 3  Coober Pedy - Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon)
It’s a big day driving up the Stuart Highway, with several pit stops en route. Our mission today is to reach the majestic Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) where we’ll camp for the night on an authentic station.

Day 4  Watarrka NP -  Uluru 
We get up early to explore Watarrka (Kings Canyon), where you’ll need to stop to admire and photograph the massive sandstone walls, vast canyon floor and gorges. On the Canyon Rim Walk (3-4 hours), you’ll experience the beautiful Garden of Eden and learn more about the local Aboriginal culture. After lunch, we begin our journey into Uluru (Ayers Rock). We quickly set up camp before learning about the local Aboriginal History at the Uluru Kata Tjuta Aboriginal Cultural Centre. 

Day 5 Uluru
We start the day at dawn taking a (3 ½ hour) walk around the base of Uluru. Hiking through acacia woodlands and grassy clay pans, you’ll spot wildlife at waterholes, marvel at Uluru’s geological wonders and learn more about Aboriginal interpretations from your Culturally Accredited Groovy Guide. Later, we relax back at our campground or join one of our Adrenalin Plus options.

Day 6  Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) - Alice Springs
After devouring yet another scrumptious breakfast we’ll experience a glorious sunrise over Kata Tjuta, before we hike to lookouts around Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and visit the majestic Valley of the Winds with its ancient rock formations and extraordinary views. After lunch, we’ll hit the road to Alice Springs, arriving approximately at 6:30pm.

I always wanted to visit Uluru and this was a great way to do it.

I've always wanted to visit Uluru and after looking at all the options Groovy Grape Rock Patrol looked like the perfect choice. It was :) The first 3 days involve a lot of time sitting on a bus, but despite the early starts and 12...More
