Experience the beauty of Ayers Rock and the surrounding landscapes on this relaxing day tour from Alice Springs. Immerse yourself in the Australian Outback as we visit the Erldunda Roadhouse and check out some of the unique Australian aboriginal art works before travelling onward towards the stunning Uluru. Enjoy a guided walk around the base of Uluru and various gorges and water holes. Savor a delicious Australian BBQ dinner with some champagne after as you watch the sunset over the breath taking Ayers Rock.
We collect you from outside your Alice Springs accommodation at approximately 6am, a light packed breakfast is provided on board our comfortable air conditioned coach, and then it’s off to our first stop at Mount Ebenezer Roadhouse.
We arrive at Yulara at approximately 11:45am, and after a quick stop we provide you with a packed lunch to eat on the drive to the World Heritage listed Uluru/Kata Tjuta National Park.
We travel to Kata-Tjuta (Olgas) for the first walk of the day into Walpa Gorge. Embrace the domes of Kata-Tjuta on your 45 minute walk, while taking in the views of the open plains on your return walk.
Aboriginal Cultural Centre
We 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
We then head to the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock), which is next to the entrance to the Uluru climb. From here one of the two guides will take you on a guided Mala Walk. 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. The guide will tell stories of the Anangu People.
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 we start our second guided walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. The guide will take you along a short track to the Mutitjulu Waterhole – home of an ancestral water snake called Wanampi. 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 Sunset BBQ
From here we head to one of the best highlights of the day – the Uluru sunset with an Aussie BBQ. Watch the majestic Uluru change colour with a glass of bubbly and good Aussie tucker (food).
After sunset we set off to Alice Springs.
