Tour of the Week: Explore Nature and Culture on our Darwin to Uluru Tour

Experience an all-encompassing picture of Australia with our Darwin to Uluru tours, taking in relaxing hot springs, the incredible, surreal beauty of the Australian outback and, of course, the impressive silhouette of Uluru itself.
This fascinating part of Australia is magical, bursting with bright colours and harbouring cultural secrets from thousands of years ago. On this tour, you’ll get to explore the breath-taking landscapes for yourself, as well as delve into the rich history and heritage of the region.

Mataranka Hot Spring
Who doesn’t love basking in the warm waters of a natural hot spring? On day one you’ll get to dive straight into this relaxing way of life, beginning with a trip to the mesmerising Edith Falls where you can enjoy the relaxing tinkle of cascading waters and refreshing rock pools.
After basking in the natural glow of the falls you can warm your senses in the Mataranka Hot Springs, a collection of bubbling thermal pools that steam elegantly away in the middle of the lush scenery.

Alice Springs

Alice Springs is surrounded by some of the outback’s most picturesque landscapes, including the nearby Devils Marbles. Tucked away in a dipping, green valley, these impressive granite boulders proffer a quirky photo opportunity as well as an unusual break in the otherwise gold-tinted scenery.

Kings Canyon
Kings Canyon is a rite of passage on the way to Uluru, offering visitors the chance to soak up spectacular vistas made up of lowland valleys and stark, orange desert. Here, you’ll have the chance to wander around the canyon walls and learn about the rich stories and myths that characterise the area. This relaxing hotspot is a flurry of contrasting colours, which you can bask in at the lush Garden of Eden, complete with magical waterholes and an array of eye-catching flora.

Kata Tjuta and Uluru
The main attraction of the tour comes on day four, when you’ll enter the Kata Tjuta National Park and hike through the incredible undulating valley. In the distance, you’ll catch a glimpse of Australia’s most famous landmark looming red and proud out of the desert. Uluru is not only an exceptional sight for the eyes, it also harbours a rich tapestry of tradition which you’ll get to explore at the Aboriginal Cultural Centre. As well as hiking the base of the rock and learning about its history, you’ll have the chance to pick up some locally-made souvenirs and soak up the ethereal splash of sunset.
