Day 1: Uluru & Kata Tjuta Tour
Our professional tour guides show you the real outback on this one day tour. EARLY MORNING Starting your tour in Alice Springs? We will collect you from outside your Alice Springs accommodation and head to the first stop of our day tour at Erldunda (home of the Emu) LATE MORNING If you’re starting your tour from Ayers Rock Resort (lunch not included), we collect you from your Ayers Rock Resort accommodation. EARLY AFTERNOON Kata Tjuta Travel to Kata Tjuta (Olgas) for the first walk of the day into the beautiful Walpa Gorge. Take in the stunning domes of Kata-Tjuta, see the wildflowers (depending on the season) and marvel at the views of the open plains on the return walk. Aboriginal Cultural Centre Your tour then visits the Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Here, you will have time to learn about the local Pitjantjatjara people and buy souvenirs. Built from 90,000 mud bricks, the Cultural Centre was created with the help of the local Anangu people. The sacred site it is built on has special meaning to its traditional owners.
MID-LATE AFTERNOON Uluru – Mala Walk Head to the base of the majestic Uluru (Ayers Rock). From here, your tour guide will take you on a guided Mala Walk. Please note; tourists are no longer permitted to climb Uluru due to its cultural significance. The Mala Walk follows the north-west side of Uluru, where you will see many fascinating examples of Anangu rock art. Along the way, your guide will tell ancient stories of the Anangu People. Uluru – Mutitjulu Waterhole Travel by coach to the back section of Uluru and start a guided walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Your guide will take you along a short track to the waterhole – home of an ancestral water snake called Wanampi. You’ll hear stories of local traditions and learn how the Anangu people traditionally used the waterhole for hunting. The caves containing rock art were used in the past by the Anangu people, whose ancestors are still alive today. SUNSET The Sunset BBQ This is an unforgettable Australian experience and something everyone should visit Uluru for at least once in their lives. Take in a breathtaking Uluru sunset with a glass of bubbly (or BYO beer) and a delicious Aussie BBQ dinner. AFTER SUNSET After sunset and the dinner, we head to the Ayers Rock Resort to drop off those finishing their tour at Ayers Rock Resort Accommodation. We then make the return journey to Alice Springs and drop off those passengers finishing their tour at Alice Springs Accommodation.
