8/9 Day Outback Adventure Tour Program 

Day 1) Flight from requested destination to Adelaide and transfer from the airport to your accommodation in Adelaide, which is included. This afternoon is at your own leisure in Adelaide. A set time will be given when we meet again at the YHA this evening. Accommodation in hostel-style rooms in Adelaide and continental breakfast is also included. Other meals own expense.
 
Day 2) Departure for this 7 day Outback Tour is at the YHA in  Adelaide, 135 Waymouth Street at around 6.45am. We escape the city heading north to the  Flinders  Ranges and the jumping off point for your outback desert adventure. Passing through small country towns like Quorn and Hawker, the scenery gradually changes to the legendary landscapes of the oldest continent on earth. Tonight we stay at  Angorichina Village in the magnificent Parachilna Gorge-Flinders Ranges, camping or hostel-style accommodation.
 
Day 3) Destination Outback, with a day of driving the dirt road ahead of us. From Marree, rich in its history of camel trains, along the Oodnadatta Track, we follow the Old Ghan Railway and its long abandoned railway settlements. This is remote territory, with red, stony plains stretching to the horizon. At  William  Creek (SA’s smallest town) we camp under the desert stars.

Day 4) Taking an isolated track through the world’s largest cattle station (Anna Creek), we head for the Opal capital of the world, Coober Pedy. We take an underground tour to learn about the history of Coober Pedy and its Opals. Free time available to explore the charm of the town or look for opals on your own. Tonight we sleep like the locals underground.
 
Day 5) This is a big day driving up the  Sturt Highway with several pit stops en route. Our goal for the day is Watarrka (KingsCanyon). We camp at Kings Creek station tonight.

Day 6) A morning at beautiful Watarrka, through the sandstone domes and above the Garden of Eden before returning to camp for a feed. Then it’s on to Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort) where we set camp for 2 nights before watching the sunset over Uluru taking time to absorb the beauty and majesty of this place.

Day 7) We spend the morning at Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), hiking the magnificent Valley of the Winds followed by lunch. Afterwards we will visit the Cultural Centre and then head back to the camp for lunch and a relaxing afternoon. Depending on the weather and water conditions there might be the possibility for you to go for a swim in the resorts swimming pool. You are ONLY allowed to swim during set times and ONLY under supervision!
