Insider Experience

Enjoy an included special or unique excursion or event

INSIDER EXPERIENCE

Today you will take a tour of the Royal Flying Doctor Service Base. Sit inside an RFDS aircraft, see historic radios used by the doctors and discover how the doctors operated in 1928. With no navigational aid and no radio, the first flying doctor, Arthur Affleck, operated using only a compass and map.


Be met on arrival into Alice Springs. Nestled between the MacDonnell Ranges, this iconic outback town is the geographical centre of Australia, made famous by its rich pioneering history and enchanting ancient Indigenous culture. This evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner with your fellow travellers.

INSIDER EXPERIENCE

This evening, be thrilled by the acclaimed Field of Light, which has delighted visitors since April 2016. With more than 50,000 solar-powered stems, covering the area of seven football fields, the exhibition is aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’.


This morning, visit the world's largest classroom, covering more than 1.3 million square kilometres, Alice Springs School of the Air has been bridging education gaps caused by remote locations and providing schooling to children at cattle stations, roadhouses, Aboriginal communities and national parks with daily lessons since 1951.

The Australian outback comes to life today as you travel through rugged landscapes to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Discovered by explorers in 1872, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is one of Australia’s most famous and sacred sites. During a visit to the park’s Cultural Centre, you will learn about Anangu culture and the park’s natural environment. Enjoy the illumination of your Insider Experience before heading back to your hotel for a delicious dinner.
