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.

We had a great time on the tour. Our bus driver/tour guides were fun and interesting. It was a bit long of a drive after having two long tours before we had this one, but we totally enjoyed our time.

A LONG day trip, and what FANTASTIC one. Picked up on time on a really nice air condition bus. The drivers were really good, knew lots about the area, did not feel rushed, plenty of time to soak it all up and good food too.

This was generally excellent. GrayLine and EMU combined to provide a service with EMU RUN, owing to lack of numbers.
They completely spoilt us from beginning to end, kept us both well nourished and hydrated throughout the day during the intense heat.
Bumped into people coming over with AAT King who seemed to have done nothing in comparison to us.
We covered Mount Connor, walked in the gorge at Kata Tjuta, visited the Aboriginal Centre, walked around strategic points of Uluru itself and had an abundance of bubbly, food, good company and amazing pictures.
Only minor criticism was that the guide taking us around Uluru did more talking than walking, which was frustrating to most people.
Definitely do this tour with EMU Run. They are the best of the 3.

Great tour, although very long 19 hours but so worth it. Everything was above and beyond expectation, can't speak highly enough of our guides / drivers. All provided food was exceptional, BBQ first class : Would highly recommend this tour.

Prepare yourself as this is going to be a long day.
You leave Alice at 6am and will not arrive back at your hotel until 12am....but it really is worth it.
It was a brilliant day taking in some absolutely incredible sights. The Olgas and Uluru are just amazing....they really do have to be seen to be believed.
At the end of the day you get taken to the observatory area where we enjoyed a nice barbecue before watching the sunset and witness the changing of colours on Uluru.
Tip !!! If you choose to spend the entire journey there on your smartphone and social media then you will really miss so much. TURN IT 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 trip was one of a kind! Wonderful way to see the outback and the famous Uluru and the Olga and #39;s on a tight schedule. The tour guide knew a lot about the local culture and customsee and shared the knowledge with the group.

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.
