This morning, pick up your Avis car and depart Alice Springs and travel south along the Stuart Highway and on to Kings Canyon.

Kings Canyon is the deepest gorge in the Centre and magnificently beautiful. Waterholes on the canyon floor never completely dry up and foster lush growth, which includes palms of ancient biological origin. Take in the huge expanse of the outback from the vantage point of the canyon rim during the day before walking through Bruce Munro’s latest immersive sound and light installation, Light-Towers at Discovery Kings Canyon. Your evening experience will see a local guide lead you through the installation under the golden glow of sunset.

Your morning begins with a visit to Bruce Monro’s impressive ‘Field of Light’ installation within the Uluru-Kata-Tjuta National Park. Before the sun’s rays hit the outback, wander through the 50,000 solar lit orbs which are scattered within the foreground to Ayers Rock. Watch sunrise over Ayers Rock as the Field of Light begins to dim and the outback colours come alive.

The remainder of the day is yours to embark on some further touring or simply relax at the resort and enjoy one of the many refreshing swimming pools or enjoy one of the free cultural activities available.

This evening is a real treat as you take your seat under the stars to enjoy the Northern Territory’s latest innovative and immersive display to relay the ancient Anangu stories through dones, lights and music. Wintjiri Wiru will light up the sky and leave you with a spiritual sense of place which can only be felt at Uluru.
