    Day 1: Arrive Alice Springs – 8 August 2018

    Transfer from Alice Springs Airport to the Double Tree Hilton, the perfect base for our touring of Alice and her surrounds.
    Your welcome dinner this evening will be a memorable outback experience as we enjoy an award-winning gourmet BBQ with stories ranging from local ecology, culture and astronomy at Earth Sanctuary.

    Overnight: Double Tree Hilton D

    Day 2: Alice Springs – 9 August 2018

    Today we tour the Eastern MacDonnell Ranges which extends for approximately 200 km east of Alice Springs and features spectacular natural formations.
    We visit Corroboree Rock, an outstanding dolomite column of rock along with Simpsons Gap and the stunning Standley Chasm.

    Known as Angkerle to the local Aboriginals, Standley Chasm cuts through the tough quartzite to form a picturesque natural alleyway. Surging floodwaters over thousands of years are responsible for this beautiful site.
    As the light shifts across the cleft, visitors are treated to a magnificent display of colours and forms.

    Overnight: Double Tree Hilton B,L,D

    Day 3: Alice Springs – Uluru – 10 August 2018

    After breakfast, we visit the Alice Springs Desert Park where you will immerse yourself in the beauty and mystery of Australia’s deserts. Wander through the ancient landscape, experience the animals of the night and discover the diversity of desert plants. Be inspired by ancient living cultures, gain an awareness of the interconnected life in the desert and marvel at free flying birds.

    After dinner we depart to view the highlight of this journey, the once in a lifetime art installation, Field of Light. In keeping with the desert’s vast scale, this is Munro’s largest work to date; more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres over an area the size of four football fields; it is the artist’s first work to be illuminated through solar power.
    The spheres, connected via optical fibre, will bloom as darkness falls. Pathways created by the artwork will draw viewers into the installation, which will come to life under a sky brilliant with stars.
