Ayers Rock (Uluru) is one of the most spiritual, awe-inspiring sights in the world. Set in a land of art and folklore, it's a truly unique place. This three-day itinerary will help you explore it from all angles.

Day 1: Ayers Rock above and below

To truly appreciate the color and scale of Uluru, take to the skies with a helicopter flight over Uluru and Kata Tjuta (a.k.a. the Olgas). These natural wonders are truly breathtaking. You'll see Uluru and the magnificent red desert all the way to the striking rock formations of Kata Tjuta. You won't be able to resist taking some spectacular aerial photographs!

You've seen that natural wonder from above, now see it from…camel? That's right, spend your first afternoon and evening on a sunset camel ride, accompanied by an expert guide who will show you the desert wildlife and plant life, and regale you with stories of the region.

Day 2
: Aboriginal culture and wonder

One of the most amazing things about Uluru is the way it magically changes color throughout the day. To admire its kaleidoscopic nature, take an Aboriginal Uluru Sunrise Lira Walk. You'll get to experience a magical sunrise overlooking Uluru and the Liru Walk, you'll retrace the path of the Liru Ancestors and hear the tragic fate of Lungkata (Blue Tongue Lizard Man). You'll also see demonstrations of ancient bush skills – and learn a few yourself! This can take a few hours so spend the evening relaxing at the Ayers Rock resort and ruminating on the legends around you.

Day 3
: Art – and the art of silence

Art and folklore abounds in this area. Why not spend the morning taking an Aboriginal dot painting workshop? Head to the Uluru Cultural Centre for a fascinating introduction to Aboriginal art with Aboriginal artists. You'll complete your own painting to keep as a memento.

Okay, we've saved the very best 'til last. Spend your last evening with a heavenly restaurant experience when you dine under a million stars at the award-winning Sounds of Silence Dinner. You'll travel to a secluded formal dining setting in the middle of the desert, to sip champagne and dine on Australian delicacies as the sound of the didgeridoo fills the air and the sun sets slowly over Kata Tjuta and Uluru. Afterward, a star-talker will take you on a tour of the southern night skies. Dreamy…
