Full description

Get picked up from the Ayers Rock Resort and journey by luxury coach with an on-board toilet to the sacred rock of Uluru. Make your way towards the majestic domes of Kata-Tjuta for your first walk of the day.

Visit the Cultural Centre and learn about the local Pitjantjatjara people before going to Uluru (Ayers Rock) to take part in a base walk. Follow the Mala walk along the northwest face of the rock to see fine examples of Anangu rock art. 

Then, head to the Mutitjulu Waterhole for your 2nd base walk at the home of an ancestral watersnake called Wanampi. Share some stories of the local traditions and learn about the legendary Dreamtime.

    We found it great value & well paced to see Uluru, Kata Tjuta guided by a wonderful & enthusiastic Lauren. The information & history she shared was impressive & for first timers, much appreciated. The sunset BBQ with the changing colours of Uluru was thoroughly enjoyable. The best to see of the main attractions in 1 day topped off by a delicious spread. Thank you!

    Was a comprehensive trip, did not have many days to work with but got a good taste of the area and surrounds in one day. Staff informative, friendly and accommodating. Finished with a nice relaxed evening over a bbq and bubbles looking out to Uluru. A memorable day, thanks guys.

    That was the best day I had during my trip to Australia, which is largely due to our guide Eddie :-) the heat at 45 degrees was super exhausting, but we were perfectly looked after with lunch snacks, fruit, cereal bars, cold towels and a great one Barbecue in the evening with a view of Uluru at sunset. In my opinion, Uluru and the surrounding area is the most impressive place in Australia and thanks to Eddie you understood the meaning and history behind it. I definitely recommend this trip :-)
