Note: The traditional owners would prefer that visitors do not climb Uluru.

This fantastic tour starts in the heart of what we call 'The Red Centre' where you can browse Aboriginal art and get a glimpse of the classic outback life. But be sure to get a good night's sleep, because come morning, it's time to discover the desert oasis of Palm Valley and the spectacular Kings Canyon - the most botanically rich region in all of arid Australia.

Then there's the world famous Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the awe inspiring Kata Tjuta (Olgas). One option available to you (additional cost) is the truly amazing Sounds of Silence Dinner - where you feast on an array of the region's culinary delights under a million stars on a secluded sand dune as the sun sets over Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

As we head North, you can explore Katherine or even take a tour of the stunning Katherine Gorge (additional cost) before continuing on to Darwin - the gateway to the many natural wonders of 'The Top End'.

It's here you'll go on to discover the beautiful waterfalls of Litchfield National Park, the surrounding monsoon rainforest, a 23,000 year old Aboriginal rock art sight, the historic mining settlement of Pine Creek and of course the World Heritage Listed Kakadu National Park. We'll take you to some of the less visited areas and even to Gunlom Falls - an area made famous as Echo Pool in the movie 'Crocodile Dundee'. You'll have the chance to see all the wildlife of the area including the awesome saltwater crocodile before heading back to Darwin where your tour ends, but the lifetime of memories begins.
