The Heart of Australia Uluru
16TH - 21ST JULY 2021
START: ALICE SPRINGS ENDS
FINISH: ALICE SPRINGS
An adventurous and spiritual journey to the heart of Australia with an amazing group of your soon-to-be best friends. We will be experiencing the raw elements and energy of nature as we hike, camp, and explore our way across the outback.
This is an active trip involving a hike every day plus general walking around the campsites and destinations. However, we always take hikes at a reasonable pace and have plenty of breaks to catch our breath, we are here to enjoy nature and this experience - not to push ourselves to our physical limits! To make the most out of this trip a reasonable level of fitness is required to enjoy all the hikes, but you may choose to sit out on a particular activity at any time if you feel you want to rest at the camp or a nearby safe spot such as a cafe or information centre.
Day 01 - Arrive at Ulura Resort
Meet and greet with your new to be friends, at the Uluru airport and resort around midday. We will check out our campsite for the next two nights at the Ayres Rock Resort and have fun introductions whilst we tuck into some tasty lunch.
This afternoon is a super exciting afternoon as we all witness Uluru for the first time, there will be lots of photos, "wow"s and laughs as we take in at the majesty of this monolith. You will be lead on a guided walk into the aboriginal rock art sites and caves around the base of the rock by Madi. After walking some of the base, we will head to a beautiful spot to have a magical vinyasa yoga session as we watch the sunset over Uluru. Tonight we will spend our first night sleeping under the incredible outback stars in our swags, count the shooting stars as you fall asleep.
