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.

This afternoon visit Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park for an afternoon of discovery. Visit the Cultural Centre where you’ll have time to explore the galleries and you may be lucky enough to see local Aboriginal Artists at work. Travel to the base of Uluru where you’ll be amazed as your local guide shares the Aboriginal Tjukurpa (creation) stories that breathe life into this giant formation. Feel the spirit of the land as your guide takes you on a walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole, interpreting the meaning of the ancient Rock Art and sacred sites you’ll see along the way.

With plenty of time, travel to the Uluru Sunset Viewing Area where you can relax with a sparkling wine or two while you enjoy a famous Uluru sunset. Witness the incredible changing colours as the sun sets below the horizon. You’ll arrive back at Ayers Rock Resort 30 minutes after sunset.

  Hotel: Outback Pioneer Hotel, Desert Gardens Hotel or Sails in the Desert Hotel, Ayers Rock Resort, 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.

This evening dine under a million stars at the award-winning Sounds of Silence dinner. Enjoy a gourmet buffet of Australian delicacies accompanied by fine Australian wines, then sit back and relax as an astronomer takes you on a tour of the southern night skies (weather permitting).

  Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning you will be collected from your accommodation to be taken the short distance to the exclusive Field of Light location. With just enough time for some background commentary on the internationally renowned artist Bruce Munro, you will arrive very excited to see his artistic endeavour.

Arriving in complete darkness, in the quiet of pre-dawn, this once in a lifetime experience will be etched in your mind forever. Enjoy walking through the field of 50,000 globes of light at your own pace, where Desert Oaks seemingly appear from nowhere as the dawn light creeps above the horizon, then make your way up to the top of a large sand dune to the Field of Light sunrise viewing area.

Once at the viewing area, the AAT Kings team will be serving you tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Enjoy your drink as the sun starts to rise and lights up the surrounding desert. Watch in awe as it pops up behind Uluru, flooding the landscape with light. From the viewing area you can see both Uluru and Kata Tjuta while the desert comes to life.

After sunrise you will be transferred back to your hotel.

Later, you will be transferred to Ayers Rock Airport for your onward flight (flights to depart after 9.30am).
