Join your friendly and professional guide in your air-conditioned small group tour vehicle to explore the most profound and culturally significant monolith in Australia. Embrace the culture, geology and environment that is Uluru. You will meander into Mutitjulu Waterhole, undertake the Mala Walk and visit rock art sites to learn of Uluru’s significance to the Anangu (local Aboriginal) people. Adjourn to the Talinguru Nyakunytjaku viewing area to watch an uninterrupted sunset away from the crowds to appreciate the expanse of this desert region at its most peaceful.
Your friendly, professional guide will collect you from the entrance to your accommodation at Ayers Rock Resort.
Travel by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. From the entrance it is only a matter of minutes before the vista of Uluru rises from the sand dunes to demonstrate its enormity and presence in this country.
As you drive around the base, your guide will take you along the Mala Walk to the impressive Kantju Gorge. Learn about the Mala People and the importance of ceremonies. Further around the base of Uluru visit Mutitjulu Waterhole, a semi-permanent watercourse nestled in the contours of Uluru. Here you will learn of the Creation stories of Liru (poisonous snake) and Kuniya (woma python). You will see rock art of the ancients and learn how Uluru was, and still is, a significant location for teaching young Aboriginal people.
You will then travel to Talinguru Nyakunytjaku dune viewing area where you will observe the sun set over Uluru from a different perspective and away from the crowds. Relish in the tranquility and appreciate the expanse of this beautiful desert region as night falls. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and light refreshments before returning to your hotel at Ayers Rock Resort.
Fantastic trip with a very good guide. Definitely recommend this trip.
very knowlege and friendly tour leader we enjoy his guide and talking highly recommended
Really great tour - a must for getting close up to the rock. Alex our guide was brilliant - very knowledgeable, and a keen interest in her subject; she even carried extra water which was needed due to the heat, even though we had brought our own water, and shared her fly repellent too! Wear a really sturdy hat,, as it was windy around the rock, and a fly net would be useful. The Dakka and sparkling wine were really welcome after walking in the heat. Excellent trip, thoroughtly recommended.
Very excellent tour
one trip not to be missed
We enjoyed this trip very much. The guide was great and had great aboriginal knowledge. It was very good for wheelchair access as well.
My trip to Uluru was a gift for my mums 70th birthday we had a great time to get up close and personal to Uluru at sunset was a sight words cannot describe and to learn all about the culture and meaning of such a magical place from our guide was a trip never to be forgotten I would recommend it to anyone who is after a little history and adventure in the N.T
Excellent trip.! Very knowlegable, friendly guide. Recommend this trip.
It was a great small group tour. I just wish I would have known the total amount of walking ahead of time. With bad knees, I struggled a little with the amount of walking. Our guide "warmed up" along the way. He was very knowledgeable, shared Aboriginal stories, and provided some nice nibbles and drinks at sunset.
better pack your hiking shoes. plenty of walking. guide was good and well informed. well worth the plane ride to Uluru. had a great time. thanks
