Our 3-day itineraries are value for money, and give you a glimpse into Outback life.

The 4-day tour is a great adventure with accommodation in safari tents after visiting breathtaking Ayers Rock, The Olgas (Kata Tjuta), Kings Canyon and the Western MacDonnell Ranges.

A 5-day 4WD package is perfect to experience the true Australian Outback – imagine yourself off-road on red dirt cattle tracks, admiring the George Gill Ranges during a sunset camp fire, or learning about the history of the land at a traditional Aboriginal community.

Travelling via mini bus, our 6-day tour from Alice Springs to Adelaide (also available in reverse from Adelaide to Alice Springs) shows you the beauty of the Kings Canyon, the opal mining town of Coober Pedy and sunset and sunrise at Ayers Rock. Experience the smell of the red gum trees at bush camp in the Flinders Ranges, and sample Australian wines at a Clare Valley winery near Adelaide. Watch out for kangaroos and emus on the way!

The 10-day 4WD tour is aimed at travellers with a spark for true adventure. It encompasses roughing it in true Outback style with thermal hot springs, cooking over camp fires, visiting Aboriginal communities and sleeping under the vast Australian skies.  If you prefer luxury, this isn’t a tour for you! 

Four quick facts about Ayers Rock

1. The sandstone rock is actually grey, but the process of oxidation gives the surface the red rust colour.

2. Ayers Rock often appears to change colour dependent on the variation in light during the day.  The famous red hue is most noticeable at dawn and dusk, so choose a tour which capitalizes on these times of day to visit.

3. The rock has deep spiritual significance to the traditional owners (the Anangu people) and if you are a commercial film maker, photographer or artist you require permission first.

4. It stands 348 metres (1,142 feet) above the desert.  In comparison, the Sydney Opera House is just 65 metres (213 feet) high.
