Groovy Grape: 6 day/5 night Rock 2 Water Tour (RWGG)

Start your Journey in the Red Centre, camping under the outback starts and exploring the spectacular sights of this area. We visit the town of Coober Pedy, unique in its opal mining history and underground dwellings. Experience the scenic Flinders Ranges before arriving at our destination.

What you see:

2 Nights at Ayers Rock Resort Campground
Uluru
Kata Tjuta
Kings Canyon
Coober Pedy - opal capital of the world
Southern Flinders Ranges

What to bring: Hat, sunscreen, walking shoes, insect repellent, water bottle, bathers (swimming gear), and a sleeping bag (or hire one from us for $20). Otherwise all the usual stuff, and most important a sense of adventure!

 

Day 1 We depart Alice Springs and head towards Kings Creek Station, Australia’s largest exporter of wild camels and our camp site for tonight. We hike Watarrka (Kings Canyon) to experience the fantastic views of the gorge, huge sandstone walls and an immense canyon floor. Here we trek through the Garden of Eden and take a dip in the waterhole to cool down. There is time for you to swim in the pool or take up on any of the optional extra activities they have on offer. 
 
Day 2 Today we head for Uluru. Nothing really prepares you for The Rock – it’s awesome! After lunch we visit the Cultural Centre to learn about the Aboriginal people of the region and walk around the base of Uluru. We end our first day with a spectacular sunset over Uluru. Tonight we camp at the Ayers Rock Resort Campground in comfy swags under the desert stars, our home for the next two nights.  
 
Day 3 A fantastic Uluru sunrise and breakfast before we head to sunrise and breakfast at The Rock, before we hike Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and the majestic Valley of the Winds with its incredibly ancient rock formations before returning to the campsite for relaxing afternoon and another Uluru sunset. 
 
Day 4 Today we cruise to Coober Pedy, opal capital of the world. Incredible changing landscape, kangaroos, emus, eagles and road trains all unfold before us and a view of the striking sandstone colours of the Breakaways on the way. On arrival we visit the local kangaroo orphanage and later enjoy dinner, lots of stories and an overnight stay in an underground bunkhouse.  
 
Day 5 We spend the morning in Coober Pedy and take a tour of the town and an opal mine. We also have the opportunity to “noodle” for opals, visit an opal shop or any of the other underground attractions. We continue our journey south in the afternoon as we travel on down to the foothills of the Flinders Ranges where we sleep among the red gum trees of Stony Creek Bush camp. 
 
Day 6 This morning we hike Dutchman’s Stern for stunning views of the Spencer Gulf and surrounding ranges and plains. We stop at a winery in the Clare Valley before cruising to Adelaide arriving at around 6pm.
