Itinerary

Days 1-2

Fly from UK to Alice Springs

Days 3-4

Alice Springs

Gateway to the Red Centre and Uluru sacred rock, Alice is a dusty desert settlement around 1500km from the nearest major city. It’s also set among some impressive Outback scenery: think red sands, wind-smoothed sandstone rocks and plenty of breath-taking views. In town, you can choose to browse the markets – a great place to pick up traditional aboriginal dot paintings – or take a look around the Alice Springs Desert Park.

4.5* Mercure Alice Springs

Days 5-7

Uluru

Continue on to Ayers Rock, where home to Uluru, the world-famous rock, a giant protrusion from the dusty sands of the Red Centre. Take in its sheer size by walking around its base, or simply admire it from afar. Later, you’ll enjoy canapés and sip sparkling wine as you observe the rock turn various shades of purple, pink and orange as the sun sets then, as dark descends, watch over 50,000 lights come to life as you enjoy a three-course dinner overlooking the Field of Light art installation.

4* Desert Gardens Hotel Night at the Field of Light

Days 8-10

Port Douglas

Head on to Port Douglas, your gateway to the kaleidoscopic underwater wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Hop on board a catamaran and set sail for the outer corals, dive down beneath the waves and explore this colourful world, either by diving or snorkelling or, if you prefer to stay dry, by semi-submersible. Moored at Agincourt Reef, you’ll also have the chance to watch the fish, which include butterfly fish, parrot fish and angel fish, from a unique underwater viewing platform and underwater observatory.

4.5* Mantra Aqueous on Port Quicksilver Outer Barrier Reef Cruise

Days 11-12

Daintree Rainforest

Continue to the forests of the Daintree, right next to the Great Barrier Reef, making it the only place in the world where two World Heritage sites sit side by side. Look for birds, possums, lizards and bats on a night walk among the trees, some of which are thought to be around 120 million years old. Spend some time exploring – perhaps on foot on one of the many boardwalks, by boat or by kayak, or even on a zip lining adventure.

4* Daintree Ecolodge

Days 13-14

Depart Daintree Rainforest and return to the UK
