Travelling south you’ll stop to visit a camel farm and learn about the impact camels had in opening up Central Australia. There’s also the opportunity to ride one of these ‘ships of the desert’ (own expense). Later stop to view Atila (Mt. Conner) often mistaken for Uluru, before arriving at Ayers Rock Resort.

This afternoon, join your Driver Guide for a drive around the base of Uluru. Continue to the Kuniya Walk, where you will be guided to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. This waterhole was a key source of water for the Aboriginal people in the area and had been in use for many thousands of years. See Aboriginal rock art and hear about the Aboriginal and European history of the area. Visit the Uluru – Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre. It houses an amazing collection of original paintings and punu (woodwork) that provide an insight into the unique and spiritual culture of the Anangu people, the traditional custodians of Uluru. Late afternoon, travel to the Uluru sunset viewing area. Witness and photograph the striking colour changes of Uluru at sunset while enjoying nibbles and sparkling wine.
