Ayers Rock: Uluru Sunrise & Kata Tjuta Morning Tour

1. Ayers Rock: Uluru Sunrise & Kata Tjuta Morning Tour

Sit back and relax as you travel into the Kata Tjuta National Park. Be amazed by the incredible sight of Uluru in the distance on your way to Talinguru Nyakunytjaku. Make your way onto the viewing platform to see many kilometers into the distance, an ideal photo opportunity. Watch the first rays of the sun set the Red Centre alight, while enjoying a warming cup of tea or coffee. Your experienced guide will give you an historical overview of the National Park, where the aboriginals have lived for 22,000 years. Arguably Australia’s most recognizable and fascinating icon, Ayers Rock, stands 348 meters high. Be overwhelmed by its incredible size, presence, and inherent spirituality. Just 40 kilometers to the west of iconic Uluru, take in the sights of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. Stop at a viewing point with spectacular views of Kata Tjuta, be sure to have your camera at the ready. Walpa Gorge is a lush desert haven for plants and animals. The gentle but rocky track leads into a world of rare plant species and lush evergreen shrubs known as Spearwood. Take a 1-hour walk through the gorge, learn about local flora and fauna, and the geology of this amazing formation.

Kings Canyon: Full-Day Tour from Ayers Rock Resort

2. Kings Canyon: Full-Day Tour from Ayers Rock Resort

Travel from Ayers Rock Resort to the beautiful Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park, stopping for breakfast at Kings Creek Station along the way. Once at Kings Canyon, you'll make the rock climb to its rim for some marvelous views of Watarrka National Park and the spectacular surroundings. Follow the rim of the canyon along the 3-hour circuit walk, stopping to look down into the canyon gorge at various look-out points along the way. Time permitting, you may choose to descend into the green oasis of the 'Garden of Eden.' While the tour is recommended for those with a good level of fitness, you may opt for the easier, shorter walk to explore the boulder-strewn canyon floor. Then, you can grab lunch at your own expense. Finally, begin your return journey to Ayers Rock Resort.

Great experience overall. The guides were lovely and very informative. All the locations we went to and the river bed walk was amazing. The only thing I will say is there was an overwhelming amount of fear put into us if we were to choose the rim walk due to the steep incline and decline to access this walk. As we are aware companies do need protect themselves and make sure that the customers are also protected but I think a little less fear mongering would of been better as we did speak to those who did the rim walk and they all agreed it was no where near as bad as what it was made out to be. Aside from that guys you did an amazing job and the tour was great!

This was 1 of the highlights of our trip to Urulu & Alice Springs. The rim walk was amazing to say the least. Our guides were full of info & easy to talk to - Jess & Nick. Had a thoroughly enjoyable long day. Watching the sunrise would have been a bonus & also broken up the long drive before breaky.

Jessie was such happy and full of energy tour guide that made such a positive and wonderful experience for us. Such a detailed and wonderful story teller, kept us well informed throughout the tour, made us laugh. Overall a very enjoyable and memorable trip! Thank you guys you were amazing!!

Everything went very smoothly. All activities were very much enjoyed by myself in my seventies and 9 year old grandson.

Amazing views. Not an easy walk. We're walkers but not climbers!!! but we did it even at our age (over 70)
