Why we love this trip

  • Join an Indigenous Guide on a Mala walk around the base of Uluru, an experience exclusive to Adventure Tours

  • The ancient formations of Kata Tjuta and the monumental Uluru are synonymous with the quintessential Australian landscape

  • Dine on local food and wine under the stars and camp on the vast red earth of the outback, well away from civilisation

  • Guided walks at Kata Tjuta and around Uluru provide insight into Indigenous Australian history and spirituality

Is this trip right for you?

  • Temperatures in the Red Centre can be extreme. During the day the weather can be very hot so it’s important to bring the necessary sun protection, such as sunscreen, sun hat and extra layers, and to drink plenty of water. In the evenings it can get cold, so bring base layers and warm clothing.

  • Camping may not appeal to everyone, although a proper bed, linen and electricity are provided.

The small town of Yulara came to be when Commonwealth authorities finally decided establishing motels at the base of Uluru – a sacred indigenous site – wasn’t the coolest thing to do. A plot of land midway between the rock and Kata Tjuta was staked out, a town built, and Yulara’s permanent population of 887 now caters to approximately 300,000 visitors each year. Today you’ll be one of them, as this is where this trip kicks off. Driving first to Kata Tjuta, you’ll have the option of heading out to explore the site’s 36 domes and learn about its ecological and geological significance from your guide along the way; so it’s definitely a walk worth doing if you’re up to it. As the evening sets in, settle down with a glass of bubbles for one mesmerising display of colour, light and shadow during an Uluru sunset. Afterwards, we’ll wine and dine you by star and candlelight during a ‘1,000 Star Dinner’

Notes: If you don’t want to camp, there’s the option of staying in motel style accommodation. Please see trip code PAYM2.

Today it’s off to Uluru to see what all the hype’s about. You’ll be getting up early this morning… but that’s when sunrise tends to happen in this neck of the woods. After watching the sun rear up over the world’s largest slab of sandstone, explore Uluru at your own pace. When you get back, an indigenous guide will explain a bit about the site’s great significance on a cultural interpretive walk, which you’ll then have the opportunity to learn more about at the Uluru Cultural Centre.

Notes: A compulsory $35 transfer fee will apply. If the levy isn’t paid in advance then you’ll have to make payment directly to your leader. Please ask the reservations team for more details.
