Low Price Guarantee
Get an authentic experience of Australia's Red Centre on this 3-day outback tour from Alice Springs. Planning an independent outback trip can be tough, so leave the planning and itinerary to a guide. Sleep under the stars, try typical Aussie bush food, and learn about Aboriginal culture on a guided walk. Explore area highlights such as the Valley of the Winds, Kings Canyon, and the UNESCO-listed Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
What to Expect
Roll out of bed for early morning pickup at your Alice Springs hotel, where you'll meet your guide and group.You’ll only need to pack 3-days’ worth of clothing and a water bottle, as all food and camping logistics will be handled. Relax on the drive into the outback, knowing that the logistics and details have been worked out ahead of time. Arrive at Kings Canyon for a 3-hour hike around the site's sandstone domes, culminating in a swim at the Garden of Eden. Head for Curtin Springs, where you'll set up your evening's bush camp; enjoy a bush-style dinner and sleep out under the stars. Day two includes hikes through the Valley of the Winds and Kata Tjuta, tales about the Dreamtime at the Aboriginal Cultural Centre, and sunset over Uluru. After an overnight stay at the Ayers Rock Campground, wake to watch the sunrise over Uluru, then head out for a base walk and camel ride before heading back to civilization in Alice Springs.

I’m so glad we did this tour; it was the best tour we did in Australia (we also did tours of Fraser Island and the Whitsundays).
It was a lovely small group and we did really wonderful walks; the full walk of Kata Tjuda, full...More
If you're looking for a no-frills trip to Uluru, Kings Canyon and Kata Tjuta, this is the trip for you. The food isn't great, the drives are long (and even longer in the small, cramped bus that lacks air-conditioning and seatbelts), the dishware and cookware...More

To answer your question;
I enjoyed the food, and I really appreciated the fact that our guide, Nicole, who had been driving and working ALL day, put effort into cooking us a delicious meal. I honestly didn't take notice of any hygiene problems and I certainly didn't get sick or feel unwell afterward. Yes, more times than not the outback bathrooms may not have had soap, but you are in the outback! The middle of no-where! A little hand sanitizer wont hurt ya! And yes, the water you wash the dishes with is cold, but again, you are in the middle of no-where, not a fancy hotel. The soap will do all the dirty work. The campsites are fine. I can be fussy at times but I really enjoyed it! You aren't paying for a relaxing 5 star trip, you are paying for a hands on adventure-filled experience! It is what you make of it. You get to make friends, see amazing things, learn amazing stuff, and how often do you get to camp in the middle of Australia!?
With regards to the guide; Our guide was amazing, and I had the pleasure of meeting a few others too. Nicole worked so hard to make sure we had a sweet time, and because of that we did. Ask for Nicole, Damo, Jayden or Emily and I'm sure you'll have a time.
