Itinerary

image map

When you arrive at Ayers Rock Airport, make your way to the front of the airport terminal for a complimentary transfer to your hotel.

 

Late this afternoon, travel from Ayers Rock Resort to the Uluru sunset viewing area.  Enjoy nibbles and complimentary Australian Sparkling Wine as the sun starts to move towards the western horizon and brings out the colours Uluru is famous for! It is recommended that you photograph Uluru at least every 5 minutes to capture the gradual colour changes of the rock that you may not notice with the naked eye.

Why not enrich your experience with an exclusive AAT Kings Uluru BBQ Dinner? Contact our team to find out more.

  Hotel: Outback Pioneer Hotel, Desert Gardens Hotel or Sails in the Desert Hotel, Ayers Rock, 2 nights

Travel to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) where your Driver Guide will explain the geological history of the area. Enjoy a light breakfast with a tea or coffee as you watch the spectacular sunrise. Not only do you have incredible views of Kata Tjuta’s domes, you’ll also see Uluru in the distance as the sun lights up the desert. After breakfast you’ll commence the Valley of the Winds walk. First stop is Karu Lookout. Along the way your guide will talk about the significance of the area to the Anangu people and show you how they’ve used the natural landscape for all their needs for thousands of years. Continue down the steep rocky path to the valley at the base of the massive domes. Keep an eye and ear out for the local birds and wildlife as you make your way to Karingana Lookout for incredible views over the plain and domes. Return to Ayers Rock Resort in time for lunch

  Included Meals: Breakfast

Rise early to travel to the base of Uluru with your Drive Guide to commence your base walk of Uluru as sunrise approaches. First walk from Kuniya Piti, an Uluru sacred site and hear the Tjukurpa story (beliefs and law of the local Aboriginal people, the Anangu) of the Mala Men. Next is the Mala Walk, one of the most important habitation areas for the local Aboriginal people over thousands of years. The Mala walk includes a visit into Kantju Gorge, where after rainfall, water can cascade over the side of Uluru and plunge some 90 metres. After a short rest break, continue along the Lungkata Walk where your guide will tell you the Tjukurpa story of the cheeky Blue Tongue Lizard! Next stop is the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Your guide will indicate the natural features of the landscape, Aboriginal rock paintings and relay more traditional stories relating to this special place. The waterhole was once an important water source for the Anangu people. Your last section to complete your base walk is back to Kuniya Piti, where you will board your coach and return to Ayers Rock Resort. You’ll be transferred to Ayers Rock Airport for your onward flight. Flights to depart Ayers Rock after 12:45pm (Oct-Mar) and 1:45pm (Apr-Sep).
