AAT Kings has introduced 10 new Active and Leisurely short breaks in central Australia in response to feedback from travel agents.

Ranging from two to five days, the new breaks are designed to be simpler for agents to understand and tailor-make holidays that feature destinations such as Uluru and Alice Springs.

The Active breaks offer walks that require a medium level of fitness, and include accommodation and travel in an air-conditioned vehicle, along with a driver-guide.

They cost from £465 for the three-day Uluru & Kata Tjuta Cultural Adventure.

Other itineraries take in the Valley of the Winds Walk, the Kings Canyon guided Rim Walk (pictured) and the Uluru Base Walk.

The Leisurely breaks offer more comfort and a gentler walking pace, as well as accommodation and transport with a driver-guide.

Activities on Leisurely itineraries include sunset at Kata Tjuta; exclusive sunrise access to Uluru’s Field of Light installation; and a sunset barbecue at Uluru.

Leisurely Short Breaks cost from £325 for the two-day Uluru & Kata Tjuta Highlights.

Joanna Guest, AAT Kings’ UK senior sales manager, said: “Short breaks are a big opportunity for agents to engage with clients starting to straddle that space between independent travel and fully guided touring.

“Think of them as an introduction to touring – all the benefits of 100 years of Australian adventure experience, but with the flexibility to design their own itinerary.”

Departures for the new breaks are from April 2020 to March 2021.

AAT Kings is offering a 10% early payment discount on selected guided holidays which are booked and paid in full before January 31, 2020.
