Alice Springs is the settlement in the Red Centre where all the "Red Centre" Tours start and finish from. Most Uluru tours are 3 days long although shorter and longer trips are available depending on how much time you have. To fully enjoy The Red Centre, and experience the outback, a 3 day tour takes you to visit Uluru and Kings Canyon and Kata Tjuta. Many of these tours give you the unique experience of sleeping under the stars in an Aussie 'swag bag'. Other tours are available where you don't sleep out at night with all the wildlife but where's the excitement in that?
