noon), we head to the Cultural Centre for the opportunity to learn

about the local Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). We then

head to the base of Uluru where we meet our local Aboriginal

Guide who will provide a once in a lifetime authentic Indigenous cultural

experience with an interpretive walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole where you

will hear the stories of the unique landscapes, art and culture of the

local custodians, the Anangu people. This experience is followed by a

hands-on dot painting session where you will take your artwork as a

memento of your experience. Experience the famous changing colours

of Uluru at sunset, away from the crowds, complete with sparkling wine

and nibbles. It’s a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and

the vastness of the desert. Afterwards settle in at our remote private

camp, complete with our signature Endless Star dining experience before

retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable

safari tent complete with beds.

Day 2: Uluru – Kings Creek Cattle Station

Rising early, take a short walk to a lookout close to our campsite

to view sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta without the hustle and

bustle of the public viewing areas before heading off to Kata Tjuta

for a walk through the “Valley of the Winds”. Afterwards, we’re off

to Kings Creek Cattle Station for our second nights’ private bush

camp, complete with bush toilet and shower. With nobody else

for miles, this camp has stunning views out over the George Gill

Ranges and gives you a real feel for the outback. Dinner around the

campfire makes for a very social time with another night out under

the stars. Tonight, listen for the sound of dingoes howling in the

distance while watching the desert sky light up above you.

Day 3: Kings Creek Station – Alice Springs

Today we head off to Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a mind blowing

6km walk through the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of

Watarrka. We’ll visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and the tranquil

‘Garden of Eden’. Later we start making our way back to Alice

Springs travelling on a typical outback dirt road. We’ll drop you back

at your accommodation early evening and usually all meet later for

a bit of a night on the town (Alice seems like the big smoke after 3

days in the bush).

Departure: Daily 6.00am at Alice Springs and approximately

Esperance

Broome, the gateway to the Kimberley and

beyond is a township rich in pearling history,

an oasis of colour, culture and natural

beauty. With 22 kilometres of white sand,

crystal waters and justifiably the world’s

most famous and ideal place to watch the

sunset on a balmy tropical night.

Shaped by multicultural influences from

Malay, China, Japan, and European pearl

divers seeking their fortune have blended

with Aboriginal Australia to create a

captivating, welcoming and colourful

personality that is the heart and soul

of Broome.

One of Broome’s natural treasures is the

Staircase to the Moon. For three days

after the full moon from March to October,

reflections stretch out across shiny mudflats

creating the beautiful illusion of a long

silver staircase.

Bungle Bungles

Explore the magical wild Dolphins of Monkey

Mia, gorges of Kalbarri and the mystical

Pinnacles Desert. Monkey Mia is located on a

unique section of World Heritage coastline

only 30 minutes drive northeast from the

Every day a pod of bottlenose dolphins enter

into the clear shallows of the bay to interact

with humans. The mystical Pinnacles desert

is made up of thousands of eerie limestone

pillars, up to 4m tall.

The moonscape scenery is made by

the pillars rising out of the stark desert

landscape of yellow quartz sand. It is a

favourite subject for photographers.

Kalbarri lies on the Western Australian coast,

661km north of Perth. This delightful fishing

town is renowned for its rich and diverse

wildflower displays during spring and the

spectacular gorge and coastal scenery

created by the Murchison River as it cuts its

Broome and Coastal Western Australia

Broome, a pearling town with an exotic past, is a tropical oasis nestled alongside the

blue waters and white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean. Australia’s North West is

one of the last true wilderness areas. Further south, you’ll find pristine beaches, exotic

marine life and the bluest ocean you’ll see anywhere in the world.
