Take a leisurely drive to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) to experience a magnificent outback sunset.

Rise early to witness a magical Uluru (Ayers Rock) sunrise, then travel to the stunning red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta and spend time exploring Walpa Gorge.

This afternoon, visit Uluru–Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre to learn more about the Western Desert region, then tour the sacred sites around the base of Uluru with a local Driver Guide, learning about the customs of the traditional owners. Walk to sacred Mutitjulu Waterhole, and view ancient Aboriginal rock art. Later, watch as the sun sets over Uluru, bringing out the myriad shades of colour for which the world’s largest monolith is renowned. Travel to our exclusive barbecue venue. Enjoy sparkling wine on arrival and dine on a menu of steak, lamb sausages, skewered chicken, fresh salads and a tasty dessert. All accompanied by a selection of wines, beers and soft drinks. There’s time for stargazing too (weather permitting)
