In order to maximise your touring experience of Uluru, we recommend that you arrive into Ayers Rock Airport or before 1:05pm. The first pick up from Ayers Rock airport is 1:30pm. It is however possible to start this tour with a pick-up from Ayers Rock Airport on later flights (up to and including the Qantas SYD-AYQ service, which arrives at 2.50pm), Passengers being collected from Ayers Rock Airport at 3.10 pm (2.50 pm flight) will miss the Cultural Centre and due to time restrictions will take a shorter Uluru walk. They will still be able to do a base walk, just not the entire base of Uluru. Passengers being collected from the Ayers Rock Airport earlier than the above will not miss any of the sights except they will not be provided with lunch and will had to have eaten prior to pick up.
Day 1 (Dinner)
Welcome to the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. Your guide will collect you from the Ayers Rock Airport at 1.30pm and upon entering the National Park will take you directly to the Cultural Centre for a great introduction to the Anangu and the cultural significance of this land. Afterwards, visit the base of Uluru for an interpretive walk. Those choosing to climb will have the opportunity to do so, weather permitting. (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and Anangu, the indigenous custodians, respectfully ask visitors not to climb it.) Watch the impressive sunset over Uluru before retiring to camp. Tonight enjoy dinner cooked on the campfire and relax at our private campsite.
Day 2 (Breakfast)
Your guide will wake you bright and early to experience a mesmerising Uluru sunrise which can be viewed close-by our campsite, early mornings being such a magical time in the desert. Then it’s a short drive to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), an Aboriginal word for “many heads”, to explore its domes of which there are 36 in total. Pull on your hiking boots and take the Valley of the Winds walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness. After the return transfer to Ayers Rock Resort your Red Centre experience comes to an end.
