ACCOMMODATION & DINING DESKTOP

Our first accommodation is at the excellent Hilton Double Tree in Alice Springs. We enjoy dinner here on the first night at the Saltbush Restaurant.

On nights 2 and 3 we stay at the Kings Canyon Resort after having traveled on the Mereenie Loop away from the crowds.

We also stay at Sails in the Desert for 2 nights, one of the preeminent accommodations at Uluru.

All our accommodations are superbly comfortable and provide a great place to relax after a day on the track. All the rooms have ensuites and reflect the region’s character, and are in unforgettable locations.

The a la carte two-course dinners and breakfasts are all prepared by professional in-house chefs. There’s an emphasis on Australian game meat, Top End fish, tropical fruit and bush tucker. We also get to savour amazing bush tucker food under the stars with the Field Of Lights experience.

The packed lunches and picnics complete the circle, ensuring your appetite is always satisfied. You can look forward to having lunch daily at some of the most incredible locations the Red Centre offers.  A walkers lunch may include a high protein type salad, a roll or a wrap, a muesli bar, cake or muffin and a piece of fruit. Each day is slightly different. Auswalk’s trail mix always augments lunch.

Alcohol or drinks with meals are not included (except tea/coffee and juice with breakfast).

GENERAL INFO

The tracks are dry and firm but can sometimes be rocky underfoot. Most of the walks are easy to moderate. The walks at Uluru are flat and easy, which are great for first-timers. However, the walk does save some challenging walking of up to 7 hours each day, across very rocky terrain and ridgelines, with ascents and descents, so experienced hikers won’t be disappointed. Most of the tracks in central Australia are a bit rocky so sturdy footwear is necessary.

This trip operates with two experienced and knowledgeable guides so we can offer easier and harder walk options along the way.

Pre and post-tour accommodation: there are many good hotels in Alice Springs, however, we pick up and drop off at one central hotel the Hilton Double Tree. The tour starts at the Hilton Double Tree at 6.00 pm on Day 1 and concludes at the Sail in the Desert after breakfast on Day 6. Or if you wish you can get a free ride back to Alice at the Double Tree in the afternoon on day 6.

For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

WEATHER

This environment is most suitable to walk from May to September, as it is generally too hot at other times. Nights are significantly cooler than daytime temperatures, so please ensure you bring warm clothing for the evenings. The climate is marked by very low humidity. It is essential you have at least 2L capacity for water on the walk.

See the Bureau of Meteorology for information about temperatures and rainfall ahead of time to ensure proper clothing.

We require that you have adequate travel insurance against potential losses, damage or injury, including cancellation costs and loss of luggage.

We also charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it to cover costs incurred from our suppliers and in the office.  See the FAQ section for more information.

INFORMATION PACK

For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.

    We had an amazing trip. Our guides Marie & Katie were professional, resourceful, knowledgable and great fun too! They went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable. The tour was a good combination of the best locations in the Red Centre!

    In June 2017 I joined a group of walkers for a week in the Red Centre. To see the main attractions including Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Watarrka and Glen Helen it is necessary to travel long distances and it was wonderful to have capable drivers and guides. The trip was planned with some hard days walking , followed by an easier day. Apart from the circuit of Uluru, there is very little flat walking in that area. walking poles were certainly useful, and good boots are essential.
    Our accommodation on current or former cattle stations was very good, as was the food. This was my second Stroll holiday and now I understand why some people have had several holidays with them.
    We saw some wonderful blue skies but also had some rain and it was cold at night.

    Take nine people, all whom love to walk, two very informed guides, Maire and Paul, and give them a week in the Red Centre walking on the most scenic tracks from Uluru to the West MacDonnells. By the end of that week, despite the overcast skies and cold wind, we became a well formed group, when Paul took a photograph of us spread out along the track in Ormiston Pound, in step with each other. The colours and the rock formations did not disappoint. Our guides were most informative about the land, the plants and the people who have lived in the Red Centre, and it was a welcome change to stay in accommodation which was not resort style with more than adequate accommodation and meals and a warm welcome wherever we went.

    I have just returned from my first Stroll adventure and will most certainly be walking with them again. Our small group of likeminded walkers were amazed and astounded by the diversity of landscapes and vastness of the Red Centre. We were led by dynamic duo Marie and Paul. The itinerary is meticulously planned but also adaptable. The website information accurate. There are a lot of kilometres to travel, but they are competent drivers and there is interesting commentary and coffee stops along the way. Most of my group used walking poles and we needed our waterproof jackets, gloves and beanies. If you haven’t been to the Red Centre before this is the perfect way to experience it. Stress free travel with Stroll.
