today I’m gonna tell you from my Outback experience & I can tell ya it was the best one I’ve ever had! A lot of people think that the Australian Outback is not really worth it to see but you’re wrong! It’s such an incredible experience.
I’ve been in the Outback for 4 days with the agency “Wayoutback” & I can highly recommend it! I flew from Sydney to Ayers Rock, where Lena already waited for me. We found our bus for the tour & made our way to our first stop the Uluru (Ayers Rock). We started our way around the Uluru while Annabel, our Tour guide, told us the story about it & the Aborigines. It was really interesting to hear all about it. After that we drove to a lookout where we had the best view over the the Uluru while sunset. It was incredible. Since it started to get dark we made our way to our camp for the night. We arrived & everyone helped to set the table for dinner, set our swags for the night around the campfire & got to know each other. Our first night in the swags was kinda difficult. It’s hot during the day but in the night it’s super cold But it is definitely a great experience!
We woke up really early to see the sunrise with a view over the Uluru & Kata Tjuta, our next stop! Everyone was so tired but happy & excited on the other hand. We walked back to our camp for breakfast, got ready & made our way to Kata Tjuta. To be honest I didn’t even know Kata Tjuta exist, but it’s even more beautiful than the Uluru. On our way to Kata Tjuta we stopped somewhere where we could make those cool photos on the street in the middle of nowhere. After our quick stop we finally made it to Kata Tjuta. We started to hike it, made a group photos on the top & walked back down, while we all got to know each other better. It was a really good day & so much fun. But after a long day there we made our way back to our second camp. It was the same procedure as the day before. We all helped set up the table, set up our swags but this time we all grabed a beer, sat around the bonfire & waited for dinner while we all just catched up. It was a really good night but it got better. One of our tour guides has been proposing to walk with us to a place where we could see the stars much better. So 10 of us decided to walk with him after dinner. & he was right it was such a magical place. We saw the stars so clear & so far out & even the milky way. It was really romantic 😉
This morning we could sleep in a little bit, we made our breakfast, got ready, packed up & made our way to Kings Canyon National Park. We started to hike & the first bit already was so exhausting for all of us haha. It took us 3 hours to walk through the whole National Park but it was even better than Kata Tjuta. So stunning & beautiful. Nature is such breathtaking. There is not much to say about it. But I will upload a few photos & a Travel Video which I made so you can have a better impression about it. After our exhausting hike we drove up to Alice Springs where we spent our night in a Hostel. Since we arrived after dinner there, we walked a little bit around the town to get something to eat. After our dinner we walked back to the Hostel, sitting a bit outside & had a chat & then it was time to say goodbye to Josh! My dearest American friend, can’t wait to visit hin in Florida! The next morning we had to get up again super early to drive back to Ayers Rock to catch our flight from there back to Sydney. On the Airport I had to say goodbye to my lovely friends from Belgium! There are such amazing people & as soon as I’m back in Europe I’m gonna go to Belgium to visit them!
Fazit: The Australian Outback is underrated & definitely worth a visit! & a little tip from me: if you’re doing a 3 or 4 days trip in the Outback, do the Uluru first, then Kata Tjuta & then the Kings Canyon National Park. it’s getting better & better. I totally loved it!
