Take a hot air balloon ride at Alice Springs.
It means getting up very early (and I mean VERY early - we were picked up just after 3 A.M.) but seeing the sun come up over the Australian desert more than makes up for it. The champagne breakfast afterwards will soften the pain as well! Seriously - it is quite expensive but it really is worth every cent. Do take a warm jacket though it is cold so early in the morning.

Directions: We book it in Alice and were picked up at our hotel noproblem.
