What You Can Expect

Uluru (Ayers Rock) and The Olgas Tour Including Sunset Dinner from Alice Springs

Get to know Uluru (Ayers Rock) on this day trip from Alice Springs.

After hotel pickup in Alice Springs in the early morning, travel by air-conditioned coach along Highway 87, enjoying views of the West MacDonnell Ranges, Mt Ebenezer, Mt Conner and the stunning Red Centre landscape along the way.

Your guide breaks up the long drive with several stops. After about one hour, pull into Stuarts Well, a typical Outback roadhouse where you have a light breakfast. Then continue towards Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and take a break morning tea at the Mt Conner lookout point (typically served with lamington, a traditional Aussie cake, and a cool drink or hot billy tea).

Upon your arrival at Uluru, your guide leads several activities around the massive sandstone rock formation. Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is considered sacred to the Aboriginal people. Hear about Tjukurpa art on the Mala walk; take a guided hike around the entire base of Uluru; see Aboriginal rock art on the way to the Mutitjulu Waterhole; and hear about the traditions of the Anangu people. Learn more about Aboriginal culture and art at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre.

Next, drive about 45 minutes to reach the other large rock formation in the national park, Kata Tjuta (aka the Olgas). Discover the site with your guide, taking in the numerous dome-shaped rock formations that contain beautiful trails and valleys, the Walpa Gorge and secluded watering holes.

Before sundown, head the Uluru sunset viewing area to enjoy a breathtaking sunset over UIuru. Sip complimentary sparkling wine or juice as the natural light show unfolds, then feast on a barbecue dinner that includes meats, salad and bread.

When dinner ends, make the 6.5-hour drive back to Alice Springs where your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

A very long day, but well worth the effort and cost. Dave and Les were excellent driver/guides, even managing to avoid hitting a kangaroo on the return journey to Alice Springs.

The desert was beautiful to see in the spring and we had several opportunities to hike around sites. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The food was decent for being on the road and looked better than what some other tour groups were getting. I highly recommend this tour.

Garth C

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Dave was brilliant.... the bus old but comfortable and clean.... the itinerary was tight but still very good and Dave's commentary was knowledgeable and concise.
The extra effort to organise a pizza for my autistic son's lunch was very much appreciated and Dave's attention to detail at the evening meal was outstanding.
I would recommend this tour
