Sunrise Over Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Base Walk with Indigenous Guide

Indigenous guides, Uluru

Before sunrise, travel to Uluru from the Ayers Rock Resort Hotel to watch the sun coming up over the famous red monolith. Bring your camera to catch the light change from gray to red as the sun lights up Uluru and the surrounding outback plains.

Then, after breakfast at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, take a guided walk at the base of Uluru. Led by a member of the Anangu people, the traditional owners of Uluru, you’ll receive rare insights from your guide, and understand Uluru’s cultural significance for the Anangu people.

The walk includes stories around the campfire and displays of the Aborigines’ ancient bush skills.

Beautiful sunrise and the base walk was so interesting learning some of the stories of the Anangu people. Wish we had more time in this very spiritual place.

Absolutely loved interacting with aboriginals on this tour. Was taught by aboriginal guide how to throw a bow and arrow at target. Quite difficult but very fun.Told very beautiful dreaming stories. Was one of the only opportunities that I had during my 4 weeks in Australia of interacting with aboriginals as they are a people who lead very private lives.

This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our 3 weeks in central Australia. We got to view Uluru at dawn with a nice warm cuppa. Breakfast at the Cultural Centre with views to Uluru and the desert surrounds was very special. Then a small group experience with a senior Aboriginal woman showing us men's and women's tools and how they are made, how food is prepared. She spoke in her own dialect with an indigenous interpreter. Our base walk was really illuminating. A local woman, with interpreter told us an ancestor story which unfolded as we were observing the actual physical features we could see in front of us. In an informal manner we were able to have many questions sensitively answered about culture, art and bush foods by these gracoius, humble women.

Wonderful experience all round, the sunrise was a glorious almost-spiritual experience and the time spent with the Aboriginal guides was a cultural experience that was a privilege and a pleasure, We have much to learn from the ways of the original custodians of this land. Looking, listening and learning

We set of for the Ayers rock viewing site in the dark, very early in the morning. It was also quite cold , as it is in the outback this time of year even though it can reach very high temperatures in the middle of the day. When we arrived at the viewing area we were given coffee and biscuits then we waited for the sunrise. It was a magnificent site as the sun came up but not at it's best due to some light cloud cover. After we were taken to the cultural centre for a very good breakfast. Then we were met by an aboriginal guide and an interpreter who showed us many interesting things to do with the aboriginal way of life. This was followed by a walk round part of the base of the rock, again with lots of information . We really enjoyed the morning and would certainly recommend the trip.

3 star rating: Worth doing March 2015

The sunrise was nice and I loved that there was a table with coffee and hot chocolate. I like the Base walk with the Indigenous Guide. I was able to learn about the Aboriginal people and left culturally enriched.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2014

Very little walk and a lot of talking, Perhaps we should have done the base walk without the guide. I did not know that you can actually hire a bicycle to bike around the rock. That will be fun.
