Departures:Departs Daily, Year Round
Day 1: Arrival
Arrival transfer from Ayers Rock Airport to your accommodation.
With Uluru as the backdrop, guests enjoy canapés and chilled sparkling wine to the sounds of a didgeridoo as the sun slowly sets.
As darkness gradually falls and the coloured lights of the 50,000 glass spheres come to life guests are invited to join their fellow travellers at their dinner table for a special three-course bush tucker inspired buffet menu.
A knowledgeable guide will provide insights and background to the monumental installation and guests are invited to immerse themselves and walk through Field of Light.
After dinner guests are welcomed back at the dune viewing area to enjoy a sweet treat, hot chocolate or port whilst viewing the illuminated installation in the darkness.
Day 2: Kata Tjuta and the Valley of the Winds
Your experienced driver guide will give you a historical overview of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park as we travel 40 kilometres to the west of the iconic Uluru, to take in the sites of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas.
Kata Tjuta simply translated means ‘heads many’ for its 36 steep-sided domes. This incredible formation of rock domes extends six kilometres into the ground and is the remains of erosion that began more than 500 million years ago. The area is sacred under Anangu men’s law and under this law, details of many stories of Kata Tjuta are not known except to initiated men. When you stop at a viewing platform that boasts the most spectacular views of Kata Tjuta, be sure to have your camera at the ready.
Tours take in either Walpa Gorge, a gentle but rocky track that leads you into a world of rare plant species and lush evergreen shrubs known as Spearwood, or the spectacular Valley of the Winds. This walk can be a little challenging, but well worth it. It takes you down into a timeless haven within the domes through trickling creek beds.
At times of extreme heat the walk may not be available, but will be substituted with an alternative walk.
Day 3: Uluru Sacred Sights & Sunset Tour
Our Kata Tjuta and Uluru Sunset Ayers Rock Tours give you the chance to experience some of Australia’s most iconic landmarks in the most magical way.
To start with, we’ll head straight to the base of Uluru, where your experienced guide will give you a tour of the major sights and share information about the famous landmark’s geology and fascinating history. As well as learn about the Aboriginal Stories that span back thousands of years, you’ll get to see Uluru from several unique perspectives.
Afterwards, we’ll head on to the Kuniya Walk where the guide will show you the way to the beautiful Mutitjulu Waterhole. At one point in time, the waterhole was the main source of water for the Aboriginal people that lived in the area, so you’ll get to discover some colourful rock paintings that have been etched around the region.
Then it’s time to check out the Cultural Centre, which is home to an eclectic selection of original ceramics, woodwork, and paintings that reveal stories and histories from the surrounding regions. Some of the artworks date back hundreds of years, providing an insightful look back at the rich heritage of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Here, there will also be time for you to pick a souvenir up as a memory of your trip.
As the sun begins to descend, we’ll head to the Uluru Sunset Viewing area, one of the most picturesque spots on our Ayers Rock Tours. On the way, you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a camel or two making its way across the park, and you’ll get to soak in the rugged landscape with its vibrant tufts of greenery.
Once at the viewing point, we’ll set you up with a selection of local Australian wines and nibbles while you kick back and relax as the scenery starts to glow in the sunset. Feel free to sit and marvel at the views or take a stroll to find a peaceful spot to enjoy it from. While the sun’s setting, you’ll be party to the incredible colour changes Uluru goes through. The huge monolith turns red, orange, and gold, oozing a majestic presence for which it is so famous for.
When the sun has set and Uluru is settling in for the night, we’ll hop aboard the coach and say goodbye to this stunning region. As we go, you’ll get to experience the clear skies and the twinkling stars that perch above the incredible formations of the area.
Day 4: Kings Canyon & Outback Panoramas
Located in the heart of Watarrka National Park, it lies in an ancient Australian landscape that is sacred ground for the Ulpanyali and Lilla people.
The Rim Walk is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The climb up a 100-metre cliff face reveals views of sandstone walls, grottos, chasms and cliffs. Or, for something more relaxing, set off on a two-kilometre stroll along the creek bed that leads to impressive views of the canyon rim.
Day 5: Departure
Departure transfer from your accommodation to Ayer’s Rock Airport.
