This afternoon, view the amazing collection of Indigenous paintings at the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa Cultural Centre. Tour the base of the massive red monolith, then continue to the Kuniya Walk, where you’ll be guided to the sacred Mutitjulu Waterhole.

This evening, dine under a million stars at the Sounds of Silence Dinner. As the sun sets, listen to the sound of a didgeridoo and join your fellow travellers for an unforgettable experience.
