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.

It was a lot of fun! The camel handlers were really good. I expected the camels to spit or be really smelly and they were not. Well behaved, which was good, because they got up close and personal with the person riding in the back! Would definitely recommend to others.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

I didn't know much about the camels of Australia until I did the Uluru Camel Express tour. It was a blast, educational and fun. The beauty of the desert and Ayers Rock at sunset is awesome, and because their professional photographer takes pictures of your journey it makes for a fantastic souvenir. Bonus was the free local beer at the end of the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

It was an early start for the sunrise tour but well worth it. Be sure to wrap up well in the winter months it was very cold. The hour was brilliant, very informative and lots of photo opportunities. I could have stayed out there for hours. Would love to see full day tours start up there, I would be first in the queue.
All staff were very helpful an friendly.

One of the best tours we took while on vacation in Australia. The cameleers were very informative and provided a great commentary to our tour, including a wealth of information and history regarding this fascinating area. The camel tour was really nicely paced with wonderful scenery. Would highly recommend this tour experience. Riding a camel turned out to be very easy and comfortable -- in large part because of the work of the cameleers. It was one of the highlights of our trip!
