What You Can Expect

3-Day Ultimate Ayers Rock Experience: Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Sounds of Silence Dinner

Sounds of Silence Dinner

Day 1: Ayers Rock Airport – Ayers Rock (D)
After arriving at Ayers Rock Airport, you will be transferred to your selected hotel. Spend the afternoon relaxing at your leisure, then enjoy one of the Australian outback’s most iconic experiences at the award-winning Sounds of Silence dinner. Dine under the stars on a gourmet Australian meal of canapés, a BBQ buffet and dessert. Enjoy the accompanying cultural entertainment, then join an expert stargazer on a tour of the constellations twinkling in the clear desert night skies above.

Overnight Ayers Rock

Day 2: Ayers Rock -- Kata Tjuta -- Ayers Rock

Wake up early to watch Uluru change color as the sun rises over the desert, and then take a guided tour around the base of Uluru. See important Aboriginal sites and hear the traditional legends behind the creation of Uluru, and then visit the Mutitjulu Waterhole to see ancient Aboriginal rock art and hear about the local flora and fauna depicted over the millennia. Learn more about the Aboriginal legends and lifestyle at the Uluru–Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, where you can also see locally made arts and crafts.

In the afternoon, travel to the magical domes of Kata Tjuta (formerly known as the Olgas), with a stop en route to enjoy panoramic views of these monolithic rocks sprouting out of the desert. At Kata Tjuta, take a guided walk along a former creek bed winding between the towering domes at Walpa Gorge. As the sun dips toward the horizon, return to Ayers Rock to enjoy wine and snacks as you watch the unforgettable sight of the sun setting behind Uluru.

Overnight Ayers Rock

Day 3: Ayers Rock -- Ayers Rock Airport
After enjoying the morning at your leisure at Ayers Rock, be transferred to Ayers Rock Airport to catch your onward flight.


Please Note:

From 01 April 2016, the order of touring will vary. The Uluru base tour will be done in combination with Uluru Sunset on the afternoon of day 2 and Kata Tjuta touring will be done in combination with Uluru Sunrise on morning of day 2.

Respecting Indigenous Culture
Visits to Indigenous sites may change at short notice, due to the cultural and ceremonial obligations. The Anangu (Aboriginal landowners) regard Uluru as a sacred site and strongly discourage climbing the rock.

Excelente tour, bien organizado, la cena el primer día, las excursiones del amanecer y atardecer el segundo... Y el tercero se queda vacío, con lo cual recomiendo coger el helicóptero, complemento ideal. Las comidas en el hotel Sails of the Desert son caras, pero es el único donde se puede comer.

Everything was so well organized. The Sounds of Silence Dinner was certainly one of the highlights. We loved the sunset more than the sunrise at Uluru, but are glad we have seen both. The colour changing of the rock is something you have to see !! Thank you AAT Kings and Viator to make our trip so amazing !!

This is an excursion not to be missed. Although my credential were late in getting to me, the tour company was very helpful. Rooms at the Desert Sails we're ok, being on second floor, with no lift, was a challenge.
The Sounds of Silence Dinner was excellent. Would highly recommend.

A great trip. The tours and accommodation were very well organised, with funny, knowledgeable tour guides and friendly Desert Garden staff. The only comment I have is that on Day 2 it seemed like a full day tour from how it was described on the website, rather than two half day tours, so I thought we would stay at Uluru and be able to explore on our own for a bit, but instead we were ferried back after the group activities and had a few hours to kill before we were driven to Kata Tjuta. It was only clear once we received the itinerary on arrival at the airport. Besides that, I highly recommend the 3 day experience. I had limited time to spend there, so this tour package was ideal. I also took a helicopter ride on the last morning and recommend this as the perfect way to end the trip.
