What You Can Expect

Uluru Camel Express, Sunrise or Sunset Tours

Uluru Camel Tour

Roam the central Australian desert on a slow-paced camel tour, led by an expert guide, and gaze at the awe-inspiring sight of Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) as your backdrop. After hotel pickup, your cameleer shares interesting facts about the ecology of the Australian outback and UNESCO World Heritage–listed Uluru and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) seen in the distance. 

Learn about your one-humped, dromedary travel companions, brought to Australia in the 19th century, and contemplate how the outback pioneers traveled across regions of Australia. Now estimated to number 200,000 in the wild, these tame camels are well-trained to provide a comfortable ride. 

Choose from sunrise, sunset or express camel tours. Watch the desert come to life at dawn or dusk. If you’re short on time, take a morning or afternoon express camel ride for a taste of central Australia’s traditional transport. Finish with drop off at your hotel.

Sunrise Camel Ride (2.5 Hours)
Take in the cool morning and watch the rising sun light up Uluru and the surrounding plains as you cross the desert on a peaceful 1-hour camel ride through stunning sand dune country. After the ride, enjoy billy tea and freshly baked beer bread (damper) with quandong jam (outback native fruit).

Sunset Camel Ride (2.5 Hours)
Set out at dusk for a 1-hour camel ride and marvel at the deepening hues as the sun sets behind the desert plains, sharpening the monolithic outlines of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Return to the camel farm at twilight to enjoy sparking wine, beer or soft drinks with snacks.

Morning or Afternoon Camel Express (1.5 Hours)
For a shorter camel ride, cross the desert on a 45-minute express camel trip including views of Uluru, Kata Tjuta and the outback landscape. Then visit the camel museum to learn more about the important role of camels in the Australian outback.

Note: the afternoon express ride is seasonal and only operates from April to October.

The scenery and the camels alone make this a tour worth doing but the staff make it an even more enjoyable experience. They're all very friendly, welcoming and entertaining.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! I was very excited and looking forward to this part of our trip and it did not disappoint! The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable about camels and the area. All 62 camels on the farm have names and are treated like family, each with special characteristics. The camels were very friendly and have had excellent training. It was a bit nerve-wracking getting up and down as camels stand/lie down in a funny back legs then front legs manner, but the staff give very good instructions and it was actually really funny! The pictures are hysterical! The photographer got amazing photos of us on the camels during the entirety of the tour and we're very happy we purchased them! Since it was sunrise, the temperature was perfect and cool as well since during the day it reached temperatures of over 36 degrees celsius 100 degrees fahrenheit! Overall, GREAT tour! Would highly recommend!

Riding a camel, while watching the sun set on Uluru, was one of the highlights of our trip. Our guides were safety concious, well organized and informative. The camels were well behaved and are well treated, each with their own custom made saddle. The wine and nibbles afterward were tasty, especially the freshly baked damper bread. An experience not to be missed!
