Is this trip right for you?

  • This is a trip that only focusses on Uluru, so if you're looking for a camping experience then take a look at one of our Red Centre trips.

  • Temperatures in the Red Centre can be extreme. During the day the weather can be very hot (and the Australian sun is very strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection and drink plenty of water. In the evenings temperatures really drop, so bring base layers and warm clothing.

Itinerary

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’. Spend the night in in comfort at your hotel at the Ayers Rock Resort.

Notes: Total walking time is around an hour (approximately 3 km).

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.

A compulsory transfer fee will apply for flights departing before 12:30. If the levy isn’t paid in advance then you’ll have to make payment directly to your leader.
