Try a traditional camp-oven dinner, cooked in the coals of the fire, before discovering the constellations of the massive desert sky during a stargazing session. Fall asleep to the sounds of the Outback.
Day 3 Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon)/Alice Springs
Discover a Lost City and the Garden of Eden on a hike past the towering walls, crevices and plateaus of Watarrka - the photo opportunities here are endless.
