FROM THE TOP END
The journey begins in the tropical northern capital of Darwin. Here you'll meet your tour guide and board your luxury 4WD vehicle.
Your first destination is Litchfield National Park where you'll hear how the local Aboriginal people’s ancestral spirits have shaped the landscape, before embarking on a cross-country journey along the rugged Marrakai Track (seasonally accessible) to the Mary River Wetlands. That evening −as you will most evenings −it will be time to relax with drinks and canapés followed by dinner.
From Mary River you'll travel to Kakadu National Park where your day will end atop of the Nadab Lookout, watching the sun set over the lush Kakadu floodplains.
Another day is spent exploring Kakadu before you travel to Katherine Gorge where you'll board a dinner cruise and learn about the history and culture of the local Jawoyn people, traditional owners of Nitmiluk National Park.
After another evening in Darwin, spent at the Mantra on the Esplanade, which is minutes from the CBD overlooking Darwin Harbour, it's a short flight to Alice Springs where, on the sixth day of your journey, you'll visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service and join your Alice Springs family hosts for a barbecue dinner around a campfire, as the Milky Way lights up the sky.
The following day you'll take a walk through Simpsons Gap and dramatic Angkerle (Standley Chasm), which was created over millions of years in the West MacDonnell Ranges.
And perhaps the best truly is left till last on this occasion as the final two days are spent in the magnificent Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park, staying at the Sails in the Desert Hotel.
Immerse yourself in the stunning sunrise and sunset over these iconic rock formations and take a walk around to the base of Uluru.
In the shadow of the Rock you'll hear timeless stories, view spectacular rock art, and be inspired by this unforgettable journey.
