DAY 1 - Arrive Alice Springs
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.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the MacDonnell Ranges from ANZAC Hill
Visit West MacDonnell National Park & see the stunning Aboriginal site of Simpsons Gap
Alice Springs Reptile Centre experience
See the dry Todd River which hosts the annual Henley-on-Todd Regatta
DAY 2 - Alice Springs to Kings Creek Station
Alice Springs
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...
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Aboriginal Dreamtime 'Bushtucker' tour in Alice Springs
Stay at a cattle & camel station
See the desert night sky & stars
Sleep in a traditional Aussie 'swag' at an outback bush camp
Kings Creek Station
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
Kings Creek Station
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.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Wake up to a bacon & egg breakfast
Hike to the 'Garden of Eden' waterhole and the 'Lost City' at Kings Canyon
See the 700 million year old Mt. Conner & Lake Amadeus
Hike through Kata Tjuṯa (The Olgas)
Uluru
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 Tjuṯa, aka 'The Olgas', before arriving at our eco-friendly outback resort for some well-deserved chill time by the pool.
DAY 4 - Uluru
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.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Uluru Cultural Centre
See Uluṟu at sunrise
Toast Uluru at sunset with drinks & nibbles
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Uluru & the Olgas Scenic Flights
from A$145
DAY 5 - Uluru to Alice Springs
Uluru
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.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Indulge in a BBQ 'Big Brekkie'
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
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...

Hotels and areas we stayed in met the associated costs of the tour however further knowledge and local information could have been given.

The trip was fun and very fast paced, got to tick off seeing the main attractions of the red center and the optional activities were fun. I wish Contiki were more flexible with the Hot Air Ballooning options because our group had the opportunity to partake in that earlier in the trip, but because of their inflexibility, when Contiki had said the day to do it came around, it was cancelled at the last minute. It also would of been good to know to bring an empty overnight bag in my luggage as we needed one for the Cattle Station and i had to go buy one quickly in Alice Springs.

The trip was good but really short. Didn't get to know people on the trip well and the downfall was that multiple trips joined so some people knew eachother already and some didn't.

It was fast paced but all in all I stayed out of the grouping and tried to enjoy the culture and scenery on my own. Most of the people were to young and just wanted to drink and have sex and got angry if they didnt with each other. Which was grose.

This tour shows the highlights of the Australian outback, and in good fun Contiki fashion. You see the sights during the day, and drink/party at night. A winning combo!

The reason I have given 4 stars is because of the amount of money we had to spend on food in the outback. It is so expensive, especially when you consider that the group is mostly travellers on a budget. I would recommend you include more meals, breakfast lunch and dinner. Doesn't have to be all singing and dancing, just enough to keep the group going. cereal and toast for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch and what ever for dinner.
