Tour Itinerary

So you want the "real" Australia, hey? You want to eat emu, soak up Aboriginal art, sleep in an Aussie 'swag', & sip champagne while the sun sets behind Ayers Rock. AND you want to do it in less than a week? Look no further, Crocodile Dundee, the Rock and Red is all you've ordered and plenty more.

Day 1 - Arrive Alice Springs
Oh hey there Red Centre, and the start of our Contiki adventure into the iconic Outback. Landing in NT we'll jump straight in to checking out the national parks & iconic spots of the region, including Simpson's Gap, a prominent split in the mighty McDonnell Ranges and an important location for Aboriginal history. It'''s said the Gap is the mythological home of giant goanna ancestors, and is also the spot where several dreaming trails and stories cross. Feeling adventurous? Have a go at holding a snake or other Aussie reptiles and release your inner Crocodile Dundee.

Day 2 - Alice Springs to Kings Creek Station
Move over Bear Grylls, as by the time we'''ve finished this morning'''s Aboriginal '''Bushtucker''' tour we'''ll be all over knowing how to survive in the bush. Your Local Guide will give you the 101 on insect eating and plant sampling, and there'''ll even be real life bushtucker treats to get stuck in to (if you dare) ''' witchetty grubs and kangaroo tails for breakfast, yes please...The authentic Aussie experience continues this evening as we bed down for the night under the desert stars at Kings Creek Station, an outback camel and cattle station. We'''ll be sleeping like babies after an afternoon spent exploring the land. '''Going bush''' (sleeping outdoors) is pretty much as Aussie as they come, so snuggle down in your swag and gaze into the Milky Way with the squad.

Day 3 - Kings Creek Station to Uluru
Our day's intermittence is in the creamy orange plains of the mighty Kings Canyon. Grab your sneakers, your camera and your sense of adventure ''' you'''re guided hike awaits. We'''ll be visiting landmarks like the '''Garden of Eden''' waterhole and the '''Lost City''', all the while gazing in astonishment at landscapes where blue and orange stretch as far as the eye can see.With Kings Canyon off the list, our next majestic spot is one you'''ve been waiting for - Uluru. Discovered completely by accident on 18 July, 1873, it's hard to believe this imposing rock region wasn'''t spotted sooner. Prepare to be amazed...Uluru is a staggering 700 million years old. Yes, you read that right. We'''ll spend our afternoon walking through Uluru'''s neighbour Kata Tju'''a, aka 'The Olgas', before arriving at our eco-friendly outback resort for some well-deserved chill time by the pool.

Day 4 - Uluru
Get that bucket list back out and prepare to throw a red tick on page one - this morning we watch the sunrise at Uluru. We'''ll learn why the site is of such spiritual significance to the Aboriginal people, and there'''s even the chance to see the area from a completely different angle ''' Scenic flight, anyone? Just as we love a good sunrise, we'''re suckers for a sunset, so tonight we'''ll be raising a glass of champagne at Uluru, toasting our Aussie adventure, naturally.

Day 5 - Uluru to Alice Springs
After a leisurely morning and BBQ breakfast - yep, you can literally BBQ any meal in Oz ''' it'''s time to wave goodbye to Uluru as we make our way back to Alice Springs.Spend your free evening exploring the local nightlife, chilling by the pool or grab a drink and kick back with your Contiki crew.

Day 6 - Alice Springs
After a last breakfast with the squad, your Red Centre soiree has come to an end. Swap social deets, squeeze in last minute hugs and start making plans for Contiki round 2...

Please Note: This tour is only applicable for 18 to 35 year olds.
