The Cultural Experience One of the highlights of travelling through Central Aus with Adventure Tours was the opportunity to interact with a local Indigenous artist. We were lucky enough to be educated on the history of Indigenous culture in Uluru from the perspective of a lady who has lived and grown as one of the Anangu people, the traditional people of this area. It was a special experience to sit down with her while she told us dreamtime stories through symbol drawings in the red dirt.
Camping beneath the stars Camping with Adventure Tours is something we will never forget. After a candlelit dinner, our nights were spent in secluded campsites nestled amongst the beautiful Australian bush, making for an authentic outback experience. Campfire conversations with like-minded people really made the evenings special. As the nights progressed we watched as the stars filled the sky. As we were camping in such a remote and pristine area we were able to view more stars than we could ever imagine.
Not a minute was wasted while on the road with Adventure Tours! Not only did we get to see the iconic Uluru up close and personal lighting up with the rising sun, we also admired Attila (Mt Conner), a beautiful sandy mesa from the roadside. Adventure Tours continued to spoil us by taking us on a hike through the valley of Kata Tjuta to see the incredible ancient sandstone domes. It was really special to visit all 3 of the significant rock features of Central Australia. To keep the adventure going, Adventure Tours took us to the western end of the George Gill Range to hike through the rim of Kings Canyon walls and visit it’s sacred aboriginal sites. We climbed hills for panoramic views, navigated the maze of sandstone domes and took a break at the beautiful Garden of Eden - a permanent waterhole within the gorge.
