Outback Camping-Tour for 4days

outback
Sorry, I know you haven’t been hearing from me for ages!
As mentioned in my latest blog-post, I was in the Australian Outback last week.
I went for a 3days camping-tour to see Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon. And for a 1day-trip through the West Macdonnell Ranges.

The Outback “Day 1”: Uluru (Ayers Rock)

On our first day we got all picked up by Emu Run Tours at our hotels.
Then we startet our journey from Alice Springs to the Red Center. It was an about 450km drive which took about 6hours. On our way to Yulara (our campsite for the night), we got all trapped by “Fuluru”. Fuluru??? –
outback After a few hours ride, we all thought we finally reached Uluru when we saw a big rock in the middle of nowhere. But to our surprise – instead of Uluru – it was Mount Conner. And as most of the tourists think it was Uluru, it is also called “Fuluru” :).

A couple kilometers later we indeed reached our destination and saw Uluru :). We went for a basewalk around it during the sunny noon. Later we watched the sunset at Ayers Rock (Uluru) from a nice viewing point where it’s beautiful to see the rocks’ colors change. But honestly, when I look at the pictures now, I like it even better then when I was actually in front of the rock :P. We spent the night at our campsite though it was freezing cold (about 0°C). Everyone wore a couple layers of clothes to keep himself warm, slept in swags outside and watched the night-sky.
We got up at 5 o’clock to take a hot shower, have breakfast and then drive to a viewing point where we could watch the sun rise behind an amazing landscape. Just have a look at the pictures yourself!

The Outback “Day 2”: Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)

After watching the sunrise, we drove to Kata Tjuta. Kata Tjuta or “The Olgas” are some other rocks in the australian outback not too far from Uluru. We hiked for a couple kilometers through the rocks and stopped at some viewing points to take pictures, videos or panorama shots.
I’ll upload them to my gallery within the next days, right now just have a look at the following photos to get a first impression.

In the afternoon we got back into our bus and drove for another few hours to our new campsite near Kings Canyon. We had a campfire where our guide “Tash” baked some fresh bread and potatoes as side dish to our barbecue with sausages, chicken and kangaroo-meat.
After that we chilled together around the campfire, drank some wine and talked for a few hours. Some of us were sitting there until 3am. Of course that’s why we were really tired the next morning as we had to get up at 5am again! But this time we slept in tents with bed in it which was quite comfortable.

The Outback “Day 3”: Kings Canyon

As already mentioned, we started our trip to Kings Canyon again really early in the morning. Why that early? – Well, we only had time to hike until about 10.30am as we needed to have some lunch (burgers with camel-meat) and then hit the road back to Alice Springs at 12 o’clock. On our way back we stopped at a camel-farm where we had the opportunity to ride a camel for a few minutes if we wanted to.
Back in Alice Springs Tash dropped us of at our hotels. We took a shower and then met in town to have some dinner together. Everyone was really tired but surprisingly still 16 (out of 17) guys came to the city to spend the last night of our Outback-Tour together with our new friends. We had a fun night in ASP and were sad that we already had to say goodbye to all the others.

The Outback “Day 4”: West Macdonnell Ranges

Most of the tour-participants of the last 3days already had to take their plane at Alice Springs Airport this morning.
I booked my plane for Thursday, so I went for another day-trip to see the West Macdonnell Ranges.
Basically these were just some other rocks, but with a little different landscape and a few nice lakes. There isn’t too much to talk about, so just have a look at the pictures and enjoy :)!

Yeah so this was my trip through the Australian Outback, for sure an experience that I’ll never forget. Thanks Emu Run for a fun trip!



I spent another night at Uwe Pathdorfs B&B and then Uwe drove me to the airport on Thursday. After a short stopover in Sydney, where I met Al (a new friend from the 3days camping-tour) for some coffee and ham&cheese at the airport, I took the next plane to Brisbane.

So now, I’m in Brisbane. What am I doing here and how do I like it??
Just read my next blog-post in a couple days.

If you have any questions concerning my outback-tour, I’d be more than glad to answer them. Thank you very much :).

    So I suppose there are things to see in ASP, the West McDonald ranges look super nice, especially the lake, but can you swim in them in the warmer weather?

    • Rico says:

      Yes you can actually swim in there… it’s also called “alice springs beach” and lots of people go swimming in this lake during summer as they have hardly any other opportunities near the desert ;).
