Description of Uluru & Kings Canyon holiday

Alice Springs provides a convenient hub for trips out into this ancient landscape, with the Kata Tjuta rock formations creating a dramatic backdrop of canyons and domes. One of the most special things about this land is not just its geological formations, but its significance to the Aboriginal people who live here. A walk with an indigenous guide around Uluru’s base is a truly unique opportunity to connect with one of the most ancient cultures on earth, learning about the ties between the people and this iconic rock. What’s more, you’ll witness Uluru at sunrise – not an experience which is easily forgotten.

A hike around the rim of the Kings Canyon is another breathtaking experience, with its Garden of Eden and natural amphitheatre, while a drive through Ormiston Gorge offer the chance to look out for wallabies and other native creatures. As the sun falls behind Simpsons Gap and the peaks glow fiery red, you may realise you’ve created your own connections with this remote land, and created your own stories during your journey.

Uluru & Kings Canyon holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

During our trip, our group leaders take active steps to ensure our groups behave in an environmentally responsible manner, such as sticking to established trails, not leaving anything behind and not removing any plants. They are also always eager to share information about their country and culture.

Our local partners in Central Australia are committed to preserving the fragile desert environment and are well versed in ways of minimising the impact of activities such as driving through remote areas and camping in the bush.

Before travellers are taken to Uluru, they learn about the indigenous culture of the area at the Interpretive Centre and are encouraged to not climb the rock but to walk at the base in line with requests by the traditional owners. As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a ‘take in, take back out’ waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.
