Explore Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon with a knowledgable guide on this fun 3-day camping trip!
This "swag camping" tour by Mulgas Adventures is simply the best way for young and young-at-heart travellers to experience the Red Centre. Starting from either Alice Springs or Ayers Rock Airport, you'll join a crew of up to 23 other travellers on the outback adventure of a lifetime. Over 3 days you'll make new friends as you camp under the stars, enjoy tasty food (not your standard tour food, you'll have kangaroo steaks and camel burgers) and learn about local Aboriginal history and culture.
Highlights of this trip include a guided walk around the base of Uluru, sipping sparkling wine as you watch a spectacular Uluru sunset, visiting "The Garden of Eden" at Kings Canyon and falling asleep in a comfy swag as you watch shooting stars above. Your tour includes 3 hikes, 1 at each of Uluru (base walk), Kata Tjuta (Valley of the Winds) and Kings Canyon (Rim Walk).
Why choose this Uluru tour over others? The difference is your guide. These friendly guys and girls are all experienced Aussies who have been leading tours out here for years. They know so much more than the guides of any other tour company and they love to share their knowledge. Leave not just amazed, but informed.
Seeing the Red Centre of Australia is something everyone should do - so do it the best way possible with this epic 3-day camping tour!

DAY 1: ALICE SPRINGS TO ULURU
You'll be picked up around at around 6:00 am from your Alice Springs accommodation and begin your outback journey of a lifetime! The next 6 hours are spent driving to Uluru, with breaks along the way. Once at Uluru, you'll visit the Camel Farm where you can have a free camel ride. Other passengers who arrive into Ayers Rock Airport are picked up during this time, then you head to the Cultural Centre for an insight into the flora, fauna and to learn about the local Aboriginal people.
Afterwards, your guide will take you on a short guided interpretive walk at the base of Uluru. You'll then head off to watch the spectacular Uluru sunset while enjoying a glass of sparkling wine with some snacks. Then it’s back to our camp to enjoy a hearty meal and a hot shower and a night under the stars. If you want to see the Field of Lights, a bus will come to collect you after dinner. Please contact us when you book if you would like to do this (additional cost of $43).
DAY 2: KATA TJUTA & KINGS CANYON
You'll wake early and have breakfast, before heading off to watch the sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Afterwards, you'll visit Kata Tjuta for a walk through the Valley of the Winds. This walk takes approximately 3 hours and the views from the valley are amazing. After lunch back at the Uluru campsite (perhaps camel burgers), you'll board the bus and travel to Kings Creek Station. This is approximately a 4-hour drive, with stops included and beautiful views of the George Gill Range along the way.
At Kings Creek Station, you'll settle into your new campsite and have a chance to view the sunset again. Tonight you'll enjoy an outback BBQ dinner and laughs around the campfire under the incredible outback sky. Later, get into your swags for another perfect view of the stars.
DAY 3: KINGS CANYON & BACK TO ALICE SPRINGS
Another early start today, then after breakfast you'll travel to Kings Canyon and start the spectacular Kings Canyon rim walk. The group will visit both the North and South walls of Kings Canyon, stop for an apple in The Garden of Eden, and visit the Natural Amphitheatre. It’s then time to load back onto the bus and head for Alice, arriving at approximately 5:30 - 6:00 pm. Often the group will go out for a pub dinner together to celebrate the end of the adventure.
Ive just come back from the tour and had the most incredible time ever. The food was really tasty, the best I've ever had on a tour (im veggie as well). As a solo traveller it was the perfect way to nake knew friends quickly. Thank you Jesse for being such a knowledgeable,well organised and fun tour guide! Jesse got us up early so we were able to beat all the other tours to the sights. Would definetly recommend this tour!
One of the awesome trips! Met awesome people and must say the food was great too! Our tour guides Ben had incredible nonstop energy, knowledge, fun-loving, professional, safety focused, problem-solving and dynamic capabilities! His positive attitude set the bar high for the group as well! I met a few travellers who did Uluru trip on their own and knew nothing about the fascinating Uluru stories! They just drove there, saw the red rock and left! With Mulgas I got to learn a lot of interesting facts and stories about Ayers Rock, outback history, it's inhabitants and more. Watching the sunsets, moonrise, and again the sunrise over Uluru was breathtaking. Also hiking at Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon was memorable too. Everything was planned properly and timed wisely. Clearly, Mulgas been going it for years and glad I went with them. Do yourself a favour, book with Mulgas and have a great time!
Great Tourguide. Best price for what you get. Defenetly a must do. If you do not choose them, you either have time problems or are out of your mind. Defenetly worth to wait a few days in Alice.
If you cannot deal with the post-holiday depression, this tour probably is not what you should take, because it was simply amazing, and our tour guide Jake (and other people in our group) made it unforgettable. I enjoyed every single day in the tour. What we did? Watched sunrise, hiked, watched sunset and repeated, what a dream! (of course we did eat, sleep and go to the loo too ). We learnt so much about the Aboriginal culture, geography, native plants and wildlife, and Jake is a very good teacher. We had so much fun and laugh, like a family even though we had not known each other before. I should not forget to mention that Jake prepared and made all the beautiful meals and snacks, giving us the full level of energy for all the activities. I was impressed that Jake cares about everyone and ensure we were all happy and enjoy the tour, like family. I love how he woke us up in the morning with beautiful songs, and even organised the 'dingo' to bring us Easter eggs. And what I took home? Wonderful memories and beautiful photos. In the nutshell, 5 star tour, and 6 star for Jake.
Had such an awesome time on this trip, I didnt realize how much Australia had to offer until this adventure. Ben the tour guide never failed to provide good banter and was very informative. Couldnt recommend this enough. Food was great and sleeping under the stars was something Ill always remember!
