What You Can Expect

Uluru Sunrise Tour from Ayers Rock


Rise early this morning and travel to Talinguru Nyakunytjaku viewing area to witness the sun rise over Uluru. In the stillness and quiet, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and feel the spiritual heart of the Australian Outback. Then be mesmerized by the changing hues of Uluru in the morning light.

After watching the sun rise, travel to Uluru. For those wishing to climb the rock you will be taken to the climb point or you can choose to tour around the base with your guide. Then, travel to the beautiful watering hole of Mutitjulu and hear stories of Creation and gain insight into why this region is sacred to the Aboriginal people. See history come to life as you take a short walk to view the ancient cave paintings.

Afterward, visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre where you can learn more about the indigenous history and culture, and see traditional arts and crafts on display.

Please note: There is no opportunity to purchase food while on tour. Please arrange with your hotel to have breakfast earlier or to provide a breakfast box to take with you.

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.

Absolutely incredible experience! freezing cold first thing (don't wear shorts like I did!) but the sunrise is really special and the tour goes right up to Uluru and was amazing, all made that much better by our super tour guide! Would also highly recommend the sunset and bbq, personal highlight!

We loved the sunrise tour, watching the colours change on Uluru was fantastic, the tour guides gave us lots of information about the local traditions and culture. Definatley worth getting up before the sun.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

My sister and I made this booking as a last minute idea when we realised that the others tours we had taken didn't really get us up close to Ayers Rock, having seen it from the vantage of a helicopter and at sunset on comeback. With less than a day remaining of our stay in Uluru, we decided to see what was available in the limited time we had remaining. We didn't regret one minute of this tour. It truly gave us the "complete" Ayers rock experience and we now have unforgettable memories that we have already shared with our family and friends. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Uluru.
