What to Expect
In the intimacy of a small group, join your guide on a 10.5-kilometre walk around the entire base of Uluru. Before you commence your journey of discovery, enjoy a light breakfast as you begin to absorb the enormity and beauty of your surroundings.
First, walk from Kuniya Piti, an Uluru sacred site and hear the Tjukurpa (Anangu – the local Aboriginal people – beliefs and law) story of the Mala Men. Next is the Mala Walk, one of the most important habitation areas for the local Aboriginal people over thousands of years.
The Mala walk includes a visit into Kantju Gorge, where after rainfall, water can cascade over the side of Uluru and plunge some 90 metres.
After a short rest break, continue along the Lungkata Walk, where your guide will tell you the Tjukurpa story of the cheeky Blue Tongue Lizard! The next stop is the Mutitjulu Waterhole, where your guide will indicate the natural features of the landscape, Aboriginal rock paintings and relay more traditional stories relating to this special place. The waterhole was once an important water source for the Anangu people.
The last section to complete your base walk is back to Kuniya Piti, where you will board your coach back into town and receive a certificate of your achievement!
This incredible experience does require a moderate level of fitness due to the length. Additionally, all belongings must be carried for the whole duration of the 10.5km walk, so ensure you bring only what you are capable of carrying.

What’s Included in the Holiday Price
Guided Holiday – By air-conditioned motorcoaches, minibus or 4x4 vehicles, trains, cruises, ferries and intra-holiday flights (including light aircraft) as described in the respective holiday itinerary. Please note on some regional holidays, transfers and sightseeing tours in smaller motorcoaches without toilet facilities may be used. Toilets may be affected by higher altitude or extreme weather conditions such as freezing temperatures and for the comfort of those on board the motorcoach the toilets may have to be closed. In these circumstances, additional rest breaks will be incorporated into the itinerary.
Hotel Accommodation – Prices are per person, based on two persons sharing a room with private bath or shower. Triple rooms may be available on selected holidays in limited numbers. Triple occupancy rooms may utilise rollaway beds and three adults may find these rooms small. This can be confirmed with your local sales agent or online reservation agent.
Every effort has been made to reserve two-bed rooms; however, on some occasions, rooms with one double bed may be the only option available. These rooms will be allocated to solo travellers and couples first; other rooms may feature a single bed and rollaway bed, or sleeper sofa. A limited number of twin/double rooms are available with our shared rooming service on certain holidays. The Operator shall not be responsible or liable for any claims or issues arising out of the shared rooming.
Special room requests (adjacent, connecting or lower-floor rooms, as examples) must be made at time of booking. Special room requests are not guaranteed and are based on availability at time of check-in. Many hotels, lodges and luxury tented camps are 100% smoke-free, including all guest rooms, restaurants, lounges, meeting rooms and public spaces. Smoking in a non-smoking room will result in a fine.
Substitute accommodation may be used sometimes. We try to use those of similar standard. Hotel Frequent Traveller program points are not earned with hotels on The Operator holidays.

Complimentary WiFi is also provided on-board the motorcoaches, however this is not available in all locations, such as on motorcoaches on Day Tours and Short Breaks in the Northern Territory. The WiFi on the motorcoaches uses the mobile phone network and as a result the connection will be slower than standard broadband and in remote areas without sufficient network coverage, WiFi may not always be available. Audio and Video streaming is not available using motorcoach WiFi. Please note that it may not be available on train trips, cruises, safari lodges, tented camps or when the main The Operator motorcoach is not being used, such as on transfer motorcoaches and other local services.

Carry-ons with telescopic handles and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartments or under seats and therefore, cannot be accepted as carry-on luggage. Carry-on/hand luggage handling is the responsibility of each guest and must be taken on and off the coach by you each day of the guided holiday.

- any cancellation costs and fees imposed by your travel agent.
On your holiday – Should you, or someone in your booking, leave at any time during the holiday for personal sickness reasons or be required to return to home due to injury, illness or death of an Immediate Family Member, you and the person in your booking will be refunded up to A$90 per person per day for the unused portion of the itinerary (in some cases hotels require a one-night cancellation fee). A medical certificate in relation to your Immediate Family Member is required.
If you or an Immediate Family Member in Australia should fall sick while you are on your The Operator holiday, we will take care of the additional cost of tickets for your earlier or later return home in the same booking class of air travel on the first available flight, provided you hold round-trip tickets on The Operator’s recommended airline(s) booked through The Operator from Australia. A medical certificate issued during the course of your holiday in relation to you or your Immediate Family Member is required. Backdated certificates will not be accepted.
For the purposes of this clause, Immediately Family Member means a parent, spouse or partner, sibling or child.
General Information and Conditions
Holiday Prices – All prices are per person in Australian Dollars unless specified. Prices are based on costs, charges, tariffs, rates, prices, taxes, levies, exchange rates and other considerations. All are subject to change. For up-to-date pricing contact your Travel Agent or check on AATKings.com.
No surcharges regarding cost or currency fluctuations will be made to the land only price once the deposit is received. No refund will be made on account of reduction of any of the above. If the total holiday price increases by more than 10% guests will have the option to cancel the holiday within 7 days of notification of the surcharge without penalty.
Other Fees and Taxes – Taxes and fees are subject to change without notice and will be confirmed at time of booking. Any additional fees charged by the airlines/ cruise lines such as baggage handling, seat selections, and/or any other services are the sole responsibility of the guest(s). Additional air-related restrictions apply. Any additional government taxes and fees charged by the cruise lines are the sole responsibility of the guest.
Services – We commence providing services to you as soon as we accept your booking and a deposit is paid. This includes work undertaken prior to travel to arrange and coordinate the delivery of your travel arrangements.
Minimum numbers – Some holidays are based on a minimum number of persons travelling. If a holiday fails to satisfy minimum numbers, the holiday may be cancelled or rescheduled.
Overlapping / Modular Itineraries – To offer our travellers more flexibility around when they start and how long they travel for, some of our holidays are sections (or modules) of larger itineraries. This means that some of them overlap – for example, some of your group may have already been travelling before you join, and may continue travelling after your adventure has come to an end.
Health, reduced mobility, medical conditions/disabilities and assistance when travelling – The Operator welcomes guests with special needs or disabilities. Please note the following:
- Guests must advise The Operator, at time of booking, of any physical, medical or other special needs that require accommodating. The Operator will make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices and procedures when necessary, unless doing so will fundamentally alter the nature of the services provided.
- Guests must ensure they are medically and physically able to travel.
- The Operator may impose safety requirements. The Operator may exclude an individual from participating in a guided holiday or an activity if the individual’s participation poses a threat to the health or safety of others. This decision, made solely by The Operator, to exclude an individual will be based on an individualised assessment based on reasonable judgment that relies on current medical evidence or on the best available objective evidence to determine the nature, duration and severity of the risk, the probability that potential injury will occur and whether reasonable modifications of policies, practices or procedures will mitigate the risk. No refunds will be given if the decision is made to exclude a guest.
- The Operator does not provide personal devices (such as wheelchairs, hearing aids or prescription eye glasses) or services of a personal nature (such as eating, toileting or dressing). A traveller who requires services of a personal nature (eating, toileting or dressing, as examples) should strongly consider bringing a companion to provide such assistance and must understand that other travellers, Travel Directors and The Operator staff will not be available for such purposes.
- Regrettably, motorized scooters are not allowed on The Operator holidays.
- The Operator does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical attention must be sought at a local facility, if available, at the guest’s expense. The Operator is not responsible or liable for losses or costs incurred due to unavailability of medical services, or medical services obtained while on holiday, or for the quality of the care or services received. Medical care in other countries is not always comparable to care that you may receive in your local area. You are encouraged to purchase medical insurance that will cover you while on holiday. Your regular health insurance benefits may not apply abroad.
- In purchasing your holiday, you attest that you are physically fit for it. If you have concerns please request additional details about your journey from your Travel Agent or The Operator.
- Some guided holidays include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement, steps and/or locations which may not be easily accessible by wheelchair. During the guided holiday, The Operator may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities which The Operator does not control. The Operator cannot guarantee disability access or accommodation for guests travelling on international guided holidays.
The Operator may, in its sole discretion, decline booking any guest or remove any guest who cannot comply or refuses to comply with The Operator’s terms and conditions. If this occurs, you are responsible for the cost of travel back to your hometown and The Operator shall not be liable for your losses and no refund shall be provided.
Travel times on our holidays vary from day to day depending on the destination. For your comfort we make regular stops and try to keep each section no longer than 3 hours. However, depending on your medical history, some people may be at risk of discomfort or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) if they remain immobile for a long period on a journey. If you have had DVT, pulmonary embolism, a family history of clotting conditions, cancer, or treatment for cancer, stroke, heart or lung disease, or if you have had major surgery in the past recommend you consult your doctor before travelling.
Booking with a travel agent – If you book your holiday through a travel agent then you acknowledge and agree that for your booking to be confirmed and maintained, we must have received all payments from you or your travel agent as detailed in the Summary Booking and Cancellation Terms. You also agree that your travel agent is independent of The Operator and our control; and that unless expressly authorised by us in writing, we are not bound by or liable for anything affecting us that the agent may or may not do.
Age Restrictions – Children under 5 years of age are ineligible to travel on The Operator Guided Holidays and children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult who will be responsible for their welfare and supervision. Children under 12 years of age are ineligible to travel on Inspiring Journeys, or on the following The Operator Guided Holidays: Wonders of the West Coast & Kimberley; Untamed Kimberley & West Coast; Wonders of the Kimberley; Untamed Kimberley. There is no age limit on Short Breaks and Day Tours. In terms of style and content, all of The Operator’ holidays are specifically designed for a particular age group. This fact should be recognised when you book one of our holidays. Countries have different age limits for the consumption of alcohol and other activities. You must ensure you satisfy the age limits before participating in any activity with age limits (such as the consumption of alcohol) and you release us from all liability and claims arising from your inability to participate in such activities.
Special Requests – If you have any dietary requests, allergies or any other special request, please advise us at the time of booking. Although we will endeavour to pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier, this is not confirmation that the request will be met. All requests are subject to availability. It is also your responsibility to double check and reconfirm any requirements with all holiday suppliers.
Holiday Participation – You agree to accept the authority and decisions of our employees, Travel Directors and agents whilst on holiday with us. If in the opinion of any such person(s) or any other person in a position of authority (such as, for example, a local supplier or hotel manager), your health (including impact of an epidemic or pandemic), level of fitness or conduct at any time before or during a holiday is endangering or appears likely to endanger your health or wellbeing or any third party (including any of our other guests) or the safe, comfortable or happy progress of the holiday, you may be excluded from all or part of the holiday without refund or recompense. Where you are excluded, we will have no further responsibility towards you (including any return travel arrangements) and we will not meet any expenses or costs incurred as a result of the exclusion. In the case of ill health, we may make such arrangements we see fit and recover the costs thereof from you.
Many Optional Experiences are operated by independent third party suppliers. These are not part of the holiday package provided by us. Your contract will be with the operator of the experience. We are not responsible for providing the experience, or anything that happens during the experience. Some experiences involve outdoor activities and/or can be physically demanding and may require signature of a waiver. You must make your own decisions about experiences and participate only in activities that suit your physical ability; we suggest that you speak with your medical provider if you have questions about your abilities. We recommend you check whether any insurance you have also includes your participation in adventure activities you may undertake.
Itinerary Variations – The Operator strives to improve holiday itineraries, services and features. If improvements can be made, or if circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute hotels. At certain peak periods multiple departures may operate, sometimes in reverse order; accommodation may vary from those stated on the itinerary pages. On holidays which include cruises, the vessel may be changed for operational reasons. Departures in early and late season are potentially operated in cool weather conditions. As a result, itinerary variations may occur. Certain activities may not be precisely as described or may not be available due to seasonality or weather conditions or other circumstances beyond our control. We will try to notify you or your Travel Agent of changes. If your enjoyment may be diminished by such limitations, please check with us or your Travel Agent before making a reservation.
Pre & Post-Holiday Accommodation – If you arranged with us to remain at a destination before or after your holiday, your stay will be at your sole expense. Please speak to your Travel Agent or our reservations team about our pre- and post-holiday accommodation booked through The Operator. Availability is limited. Breakfast and luggage handling is not included unless otherwise noted.
Behaviour – The Operator is here to provide the best services possible but in doing so we will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behaviour from our guests. We will refuse to deal with and may terminate the holiday of guests who assault The Operator staff, suppliers or fellow guests or who are abusive or aggressive to them and are generally affecting the enjoyment of others with their behaviour and you may be barred from future holidays with The Operator and The Travel Corporation family of brands. This may include (but is not limited to):
- verbally abusive or offensive language towards anyone;
- bullying behaviour;
- inappropriate or abusive behaviour including uninvited physical contact, harassment, violence or threat of violence;
- excessive consumption of alcohol or intoxication;
- the possession, carriage or use of restricted substances or drugs (except for medical purposes approved by your doctor);
- failure to comply with The Operator’s (including a representative’s) reasonable direction;
- conduct which, in The Operator’s opinion, is not compatible with other guests’ general enjoyment and well-being or the smooth operation of the holiday;
- the possession, carriage or use of dangerous items (such as weapons);
- breaking the law of the Country in which you are travelling; and
- any behaviour or conduct which brings The Operator into disrepute or damages its goodwill.
When you make a booking, you accept responsibility for the proper conduct of all members of your party during your travels with The Operator. We reserve the right at any time and at our discretion to terminate the travel arrangements and/or cease to deal with any party member(s) whose behaviour, in the reasonable opinion of us or our suppliers, may cause danger, upset, disruption or distress to anyone else or damage to property. Full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be made. We shall have no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses (including but not limited to alternative accommodation and return transportation arrangements) guest may incur as a result of the travel arrangements being terminated.
You must immediately report any pre-existing damage in your room to accommodation staff and/or an The Operator Travel Director. If you damage the accommodation in which you are staying or any property, you must reimburse the accommodation provider or property owner concerned for the cost of the damage before the end of your stay if the cost has been established by then or as soon as it has been established if later. You must indemnify us for the full amount of any claim (also including legal costs) made against us. Criminal proceedings may be instigated. The Operator is not responsible for any costs incurred concerning a guest removed from a holiday or aircraft, ship or train. Guests agree not to hold The Operator or any of its related entities liable for any actions taken under these terms and conditions.
Changes due to National/Public Holidays – During local or national holidays, certain facilities such as museums, sightseeing tours and shopping may be limited or unavailable. In such instances itinerary changes are made by The Operator seeking to reduce inconvenience to guests. Such changes are deemed not to be a major change to the itinerary, and no compensation will be payable to guests. Holidays, closing days and other circumstances may necessitate a change of the day of the week for scheduled regional meals, sightseeing or other activities. If you feel your enjoyment might be diminished by any of these circumstances please check with the respective national tourist office before selecting a specific departure date.
For Your Comfort – The Operator enforces a strict no smoking (including e-cigarettes) and no alcohol policy on board motorcoaches. Regular comfort stops are made on travelling days. Many hotels, restaurants, trains, cruises and other venues are 100% smoke free.
Disclaimer of Warranties – The Operator warrants only that the services shall be generally, though in view of the vagaries of travel, not necessarily precisely, as described, and subject to changes and the other terms and conditions herein. All other warranties, express and implied, including warranties of fitness for a specific purpose and merchantability are expressly excluded. There is no warranty that extends beyond the description of the face hereof.
Complete Agreement – These booking conditions, together with the other terms incorporated into this contract referred to below, represent the entire agreement between the parties.
Changes – The Operator shall be responsible to the guest for supplying the services and accommodation described in the itinerary, except where they cannot be supplied or the itinerary is changed due to delays or other causes of whatever kind or nature beyond the Operator’s control. In such circumstances, the Operator will seek to supply comparable services, accommodation and itineraries and there shall be no refund in these circumstances.
Disclaimer of Liability – To the maximum extent permitted by law, neither The Operator nor its agents or affiliated entities (“released parties”) shall be responsible or liable for cancellations, acts of other service providers, diversions or substitution of equipment or any act, variation, postponement, omission or default by air carriers, land carriers, hoteliers or hotels, transportation companies, or any other persons providing services or accommodation to guests including any results thereof, such as changes in services, accommodation or facilities. Nor shall they be liable for loss or damage to baggage or property, or for injury, illness or death, or for any damages or claims whatsoever arising from loss, negligence or delay from the act, error, omission default or negligence of any person not its direct employee or under its exclusive control, including any act, error, omission, default, or negligence of any country, government or governmental authority, officer or employee. The released parties shall not be liable for indirect, special or consequential damages.
All baggage and personal effects are at all times and in all circumstances at the risk of the holiday participant. The Operator recommends that each guest obtains luggage insurance. After return at the end of the holiday, if lost articles are found and returned to the owner, a service fee will be charged. The Travel Directors, carriers, hotels and other suppliers who provide services on holiday are independent contractors; they are not agents, employees or servants of the Operator or its associated companies. All certificates and other travel documents for services issued by the Operator are subject to the terms and conditions specified by the carriers and suppliers and to the laws of the countries in which the services are supplied. Carriage by sea is subject to the Carrier’s Conditions of Carriage which are expressly incorporated into this contract, copies of which are available upon request. The released parties are not responsible for any criminal or other conduct by third parties, whether criminal, intentional, grossly negligent, negligent or otherwise.
Additional Risks – Additional risks may arise including, but not limited to, hazards of travelling in undeveloped areas, hazards of travel by boat, train, bus, car, truck, aircraft and other means, animals, forces of nature, unrest, differing levels of sanitation, differing safety standards, risks associated with water, drinks, food, plants, insects and animals, diseases and transmission of disease to you or members of your family or party, accident or illness in areas of difficult evacuation or poor medical facilities, acts of governments; all occurring during the holiday or while coming to or returning from the holiday. You are voluntarily participating, knowing there are risks. You agree to accept any and all risks. You release and discharge The Operator, its related companies and personnel from, and agree not to make a claim against any of them for, any and all claims, known or unknown, arising from contracting for, travelling to or from, or travelling during, and in any and every way participating in a holiday, even where caused by negligence of any of these released and discharged persons and entities. This release and discharge of liability, assumption of risk and agreement not to make a claim is entered into on behalf of you and all members of your family and party, also including minors. This agreement also binds your heirs, legal representatives and assigns.
Safety – Where the guest occupies a motorcoach seat fitted with a safety belt, neither The Operator nor the Operator nor its agents or co-operating organisations or service providers will be liable for any injury, illness or death or for any loss or damages or claims whatsoever arising from any accident or incident, if the safety belt is not being worn at the time of such an accident or incident. This exclusion and limitation of liability shall not be used to imply that the Operator or its agents or affiliated entities are liable in other circumstances
International Treaties – Transportation companies, airlines etc. are not to be held responsible for any act, omission or event during the time guests are not on board planes, transportation or conveyances. We rely on international convention which may apply to the services provided by us, our suppliers or agents with respect to any claim of any nature brought by you against us as a result of the provision of those services. International conventions which apply may include: Warsaw Convention 1929, (as amended by Hague Protocol and Montreal Protocol) in relation to air travel, or Montreal Convention; the Berne Convention for rail travel; Athens Convention 1974 for carriage by sea; the Geneva Convention for carriage by road and the Paris Convention 1962 for Hotels. We are to be regarded as having all the benefits of these conventions on limiting our liability in relation to any claim for death, injury, loss, damage and delay to guests and luggage.
Errors and Omissions – In the case of computer or human billing errors, we reserve the right to re-invoice guests and their Travel Agents with correct billing.
Every effort is made to accuracy of our brochures and website; however, The Operator cannot be held responsible for printing or typographical errors, or errors arising from unforeseen circumstances. Moreover, photographs and descriptions of locations or attractions are merely representative of conditions that existed at time of brochure printing and conditions may not be the same at the time of your journey.
The airline(s) featured or nominated in our brochures or website do not by virtue of their endorsement commit or represent themselves either as contracting with any purchaser of a holiday from The Operator or as having any other legal relationship with them.
All bookings made with any provider of any transport, facilities, meals, other goods or of any services are subject to terms and conditions and exclusions and/or limitations of liability imposed by them in relation to matters not covered particularly and expressly by your agreement with The Operator.
If you decide that you do not want to visit a country or part of a country you intended to visit because of any law, condition or requirement of any government or governmental authority, official, servant or agent, you are responsible for any costs, expenses, charges, fees, losses or damage incurred as a consequence and any cancellation or amendment fees. None of the companies in the The Operator group of companies, or any of their staff or agents, accept any responsibility or liability for your acts, omissions, defaults, conduct, state of health, condition or circumstances.
Complaint Procedures and Consumer Protection
Complaint Procedure – If you have a problem during your holiday please inform The Operator’s Travel Director immediately, who will try to make things right. Such assistance may include providing information on health services, local authorities and consular assistance as well as arranging communication and/or making alternative travel arrangements. We may charge a fee for these services where you have caused the problem intentionally or by your own negligence. If the matter was not resolved locally, please write to The Operator’s Guest Relations Department at the address below within sixty (60) days of the end of your holiday, as it is important that you provide us the information quickly. Please quote your booking reference number and all relevant information. Failure to follow this procedure may delay or deny us the opportunity to investigate and rectify the problem, which may affect the way your complaint is dealt with and your rights under this contract. In any legal action, arbitration, or other proceeding to enforce, interpret or construe the terms of this Agreement, or concerning any grievance relating to the holiday, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover actual reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses.
Data Protection – To process your holiday booking, The Operator will need to use personal information for you and guests in your booking. Personal information may include each guest’s name, address, phone number, email address, passport number, and sensitive information such as health, medical, dietary, mobility, religious or other special requirements. This personal information may be passed on to other suppliers of your travel arrangements in addition to public authorities (such as customs and immigration), security and credit checking organisations, and otherwise as required by law. We may need to provide personal information to contractors who provide services to or for us (e.g. sending mail, providing marketing assistance, etc). This may involve sending personal information (including sensitive information) to other countries that may not afford the same level of protection of personal information. In making your booking, you consent to your personal data being passed to relevant third parties as set out above.
We may also use the personal information you provide us to review and improve the guided holidays and services that we offer, and to contact you (by post, email and/or telephone) about other guided holidays and services offered by The Operator that you may be interested in (providing you have opted in to receive this information). You can update, delete, or request access to your personal information directly through our online form at https://ttc.com/personal-data-request/
If you would like to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you, write to The Operator. A fee may be charged for supplying you with this information as permitted by law.
Each guest is required to comply with the terms, conditions, requirements, laws, rules and/or regulations of any service provider, or any country or governmental authority, and shall be liable for any such non-compliance.
Booking Arrangements – Your booking arrangements can be made through your Travel Agent, an online booking agent or with The Operator directly. When you make a booking, you must be at least 18 years of age at the time of booking. You are guaranteeing that you understand and have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of yourself and all members of your party the terms of these booking conditions. We will deal only with the lead booking name in all subsequent correspondence and dealings. You are responsible for making all payments due, ensuring the accuracy of all personal details and other information supplied in respect of yourself and your party, notifying us of any changes or cancellations and for receiving correspondence and keeping your party informed.
Additional Optional Experiences – With The Operator, you will enjoy many famous highlights as included features on your holiday, at no extra cost. An exciting array of additional optional experiences and activities may be made available to further enhance your experience. These experiences and activities are optional, and are offered at special preferential prices. In some locations they can be pre-booked before your holiday otherwise they can be booked during the holiday. A detailed list and cost of these will be included in your travel documentation as well as available on the The Operator website once they have been confirmed for your itinerary. You can book and pay for them through your Travel Director by cash or, in some regions, by credit card. Optional experiences and activities may vary due to seasonal conditions and often require minimum guest participation. Prices are subject to change without notice.
