Arrival information

There are no planned activities for the first day of your trip, so arrive in Ayers Rock/Connellan Airport (AYQ) on day 1 or earlier (any extra nights of accommodation will be payable at an additional cost). We recommend arriving in time for the 5pm welcome meeting on day 1.

It might be in the middle of nowhere, but Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is pretty easy to get to. You can fly directly to Ayers Rock/Connellan Airport directly from a number of Australian cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Darwin, Adelaide and Alice Springs). Transfers aren’t included on this trip, but a taxi is easy to organise (ask your travel adviser for more information). The journey time is around ten minutes, depending on traffic.

The trip ends on day 4 and you can leave at any time after midday. You’ll need to arrange return airport transfers to Ayers Rock Airport as well, but your tour guide can help with this. Please make sure you allow plenty of time for transfers, to mitigate for possible delays. We recommend a late afternoon or evening flight at the earliest.

Accommodation & meals

3 nights’ accommodation are included on this trip. We’ll stay in a cosy lodge in the Yulara township in quad-share rooms.

Meals

3 breakfasts and 1 dinner are included on this trip. You’ll have to buy all other meals yourself. Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements.

Minimum age & eligibility

You'll need to be a minimum of 18 years old to join this trip. This trip is designed for 18 - 35-year-olds.

British citizens who are not planning to work in Australia can usually obtain an eVisitor visa from the Department of Home Affairs (no fee), or an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay.

Visa rules and regulations are subject to change. Please check the relevant embassy websites for up to date information.

Covid safety

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.

Healthcare
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.
