Tasty Red Centre Tour with Celebrity Chef Miguel

We’ve given you the hot tip on a couple of celebrity chef curated tours of far flung places. To have the chance to tell you about one in our own big backyard was an opportunity too good to miss.

Signature Tours from Luxury Escapes has come up with an outback experience like no other, iconic Australian landscapes and destinations with a man whose strong Spanish accent and ready laugh would be a joy to behold even if he wasn’t a great cook… which he is.

Join chef and television personality Miguel Maestre on an unforgettable journey of discovery through Australia’s spellbinding Red Centre, designed in collaboration with Tourism NT.

Countless iconic moments await in the heart of the outback – walk in the shadow of Uluṟu, stare in wonder at Bruce Munro’s award-winning Field of Light and be among the few to see ancient Mount Conner up close in a spectacular four-wheel-drive tour.

Experience it all in unrivalled comfort with stays at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Alice Springs and the iconic Sails in the Desert, perched on the rust-red edge of Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park.

As your host, Miguel brings his energy and passion for uncovering the heart of Australian culture, cuisine and landscapes.

Witness a breathtaking fusion of Indigenous tradition and cutting-edge technology at the show-stopping Wintjiri Wiṟu, with exquisite bush cuisine and premium drinks included.

You’ll also be treated to some of the Northern Territory’s most spectacular experiences, including an authentic cattleman’s bush BBQ in Alice Springs and a memorable morning watching the desert come to life during sunrise in Uluṟu.

So grab your best akubra – it’s time to get to the heart of Australia with Miguel! From days driving through rich red soil to nights dining on crocodile pie, this is the outback as you’ve never experienced it.

With one departure only in September 2024, places on this tour are exclusive and limited.

Signature Experience: Outback Bush BBQ

As the sun begins to dip below the horizon, dramatically filling the sky with a thousand shades of red, orange and pink, prepare yourself for a welcome dinner to remember.

Journey from the Hilton in Alice Springs to a remote corner of the MacDonnell Ranges where the Outback Bush BBQ in the Old Quarry serves a tantalising spread of local cattleman history, mouthwatering bush cooking and guaranteed good vibes – ice-cold beer and wine included.

Miguel Maestre will join in on the action as chefs grill tantalising cuts of Aussie scotch fillet and prime beef sausages. Matched with salads, decadent rum-and-raisin damper and the singing and strumming of authentic bush balladeers beneath a night sky teeming with stars, there’s no finer way to kickstart your outback odyssey.

Your Signature Series tour takes you to: Alice Springs – Curtin Springs Station (Mount Conner) – Uluṟu (Yulara).
