Most day tours include hotel pickup, round-trip transportation, entrance fees, and meals, and feature highlights such as the Mala Walk, the Mutitjulu Waterhole, an Uluru sunset viewing, and an Aussie-style barbecue dinner in the desert. Alternatively, opt for a one-way shuttle transfer to the Ayers Rock Resort from Alice Springs, and explore the sights at your own pace.
Multi-day tours mean you’ll have plenty of time to discover the natural wonders of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and see Uluru at both sunrise and sunset.
Choose an overnight tour and spend a night in the Australian outback; set out on a 3-, 4- or 5-day tour of the Red Centre highlights, including extras like King’s Canyon, the Walpa Gorge, and the West MacDonnell Ranges; or take an epic 6-day tour all the way from Alice Springs to Adelaide.. Most tours include accommodation, as well as selected meals, entrance fees, and activities.
You travel to Kata Tjuta (Olgas) for the first walk of the day into Walpa Gorge. Embrace the domes of Kata-Tjuta on your first walk of the day, while taking in the views of the open plains on the return walk.
Aboriginal Cultural Centre
You then visit the Aboriginal Cultural Centre where you will have time to learn about the local Pitjantjatjara people and buy some souvenirs. The Cultural Centre was built with 90,000 mud bricks with the help of the local Anangu people. It is built on a sacred site and has very special meaning to the local Anangu people.
Uluru – Mala Walk
You then head to the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock), which is next to the entrance to the Uluru climb. The Mala Walk follows the north-west side of Uluru, where there are many fine examples of Anangu rock art, and you can experience the wonder of the sheer vertical walls.
Uluru – Mutitjulu Waterhole
We drive from the front of Uluru around to the Kuniya car park, which is at the back of Uluru. From here you start your second Uluru guided walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. The guide will share stories of local traditions and explain how the Anangu people traditionally used the waterhole for hunting. The caves containing rock art were used in the past by Anangu still alive today.
The Uluru Sunset
The scene has been set, the highlight of the day, the breathtaking Uluru sunset. A spectacular day never to be forgotten. After sunset, we set off to Alice Springs. Or if you’re ending the tour at Ayers Rock Resort you’ll be dropped off at Outback Pioneer after sunset.
