This three-day tour departs from Alice Springs very early on your start date. You must ensure your arrival in Alice Springs on the previous day before your tour starts. As the tour finishes late on your last day we recommend you stay an extra night in Alice Springs at the end of your trip.
Please contact Gap 360 who can help you book extra accommodation.
Accommodation for both nights of your stay is on private campsites, with the option to sleep either in tents or in a traditional Aussie ‘swag’ under the stars. The first night will be spent near Uluru and the second night on a working cattle station. Camping equipment and fees are included, as is a pillow, but you will need to bring your own sleeping bag for the trip, or one can be hired for AUD50. Let us know if you wish to hire a sleeping bag and we can pre-book one for you.
Food is mostly included in the tour. On the first day you will have to get your own breakfast before travelling, but lunch is provided en route and dinner is cooked over a campfire for a taste of authentic outback living. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on day two, and on the final day you are given breakfast and lunch before arriving back in Alice Springs.
With a minimum age of 18, all travellers are welcome on the trip, though you should be aware that a reasonable level of fitness is required to participate in some of the more energetic activities.
You will require a visa or Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) to enter Australia. These must be applied for before departure, and if you’re planning on working in Australia whilst you’re out here you’ll need a Working Holiday Visa. If you are just heading to Australia for fun however, an ETA will suffice. Both visas can be applied for online. Please feel free to contact us if you need any more information.
Visa rules and regulations are subject to change. Please check the relevant embassy websites for up to date information.
This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:
Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.
Proof of vaccination or negative covid test
For the safety of all travellers, at the start of some trips you may be required to show evidence that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your second dose) and/or show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the tour start date in order to join the programme.
Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.
Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.
Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.
Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.
Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.
24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.
It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
