ULURU TOURS

map

Travel to the heart of Central Australia on an authentic Uluru (Ayers Rock) tour with Wayoutback Australian Safaris. Whether you want a budget camping tour to Uluru which takes in the highlights, or a 4WD tour with a higher level of comfort, we have an Outback tour to suit all styles of travel. As we've been leading tours around the Red Centre for over 18 years, you can rest assured knowing you're in experienced hands with our passionate guides who are full of knowledge about local history, Aboriginal culture and our stunning natural environment.

Our tours range from 1 to 5 days and get you up close and personal with Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the other must-see highlights of the Red Centre. Everyone knows Uluru, the world's biggest rock, that stands 348 metres high and stretches over 10 kms in circumference, but many don't know the other treasures of the Red Centre including Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park and the West Macdonnell Ranges. We'll take you to them all and you'll leave with a newfound appreciation for the treasures of the Outback.

Our tours to Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the Red Centre depart from Alice Springs or Ayers Rock Airport, so regardless of your Australia holiday plans you can fit in a tour of the Red Centre with us. If you have questions on how to best make an Uluru tour work for you, get in contact with our friendly Reservations team!

FIELD OF LIGHT AT ULURU

All our tours offer the chance to visit the Field of Light art installation at Uluru (more info here on our blog and here). We highly recommend you make your reservations for Field of Light with us upon placing your tour booking.

As darkness falls and Uluru is thrown into silhouette, Field of Light illuminates. As far as the eye can see gentle rhythms of colour light up the desert.

The critically acclaimed Field of Light Uluru by the internationally celebrated artist Bruce Munro has now been extended until 31 December 2020.

The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or 'looking at lots of beautiful lights' in local Pitjantjatjara is Munro's largest work to date. Overwhelming in size, covering more than seven football fields, it invites immersion in its fantasy garden of 50,000 spindles of light, the stems breathing and swaying through a sympathetic desert spectrum of ochre, deep violet, blue and gentle white.

The Field of Light is an optional experience and costs $42 per adult and $30 per child 5-15 years and can be added during the booking process on any of our Uluru Tours below.
