Uluru Base Tour
Your experienced Driver Guide will join you on a coach tour around the base of Uluru and give you details on its geology and incredible history. You’ll be fascinated by the Aboriginal stories that go back many thousands of years.
You’ll then head to the Kuniya Walk where your Driver Guide will lead you to the famous Mutitjulu Waterhole. The waterhole provided a key source of water for the Aboriginal people in the area and had been in use for many thousands of years. You’ll see wonderful Aboriginal rock paintings and come to understand their significance.
Uluru – Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre
The Uluru – Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre houses an amazing collection of original ceramics, paintings and punu (woodwork) that provide an insight into the unique and spiritual culture of the Anangu, the traditional custodians of Uluru. You can take home your own unique piece of punu.
Wine & Nibbles
You’ll head off to the Uluru Sunset Viewing Area. En route, you may see some dromedary camels casually strolling through the park. On arrival at the Sunset Viewing Area, you’ll be served sparkling wine and nibbles while you absorb the enormity and beauty of your surroundings. You can just sit and relax or stroll around the area to find your own personal space to watch an amazing Red Centre sunset.
Arguably Australia’s most recognisable and fascinating icon, Uluru (Ayers Rock) stands 348 metres high, however, most of its mass is below ground level. You’ll be overwhelmed by its monolithic size, presence and inherent spirituality. As the sun sets over the western horizon, you’ll be witness to the majestic presence and many shades of colour for which Uluru is most famous.

Uluru is also known as Ayers Rock; it was named by William Gosse in 1873 after Sir Henry Ayers.
The rock was created over some 600 million years, and the Aborigines have been in the area for the last 22,000 years.
Uluru's surface is made up of valleys, ridges & caves that were created through erosion over millions of years. Surface oxidation of its iron content gives it an orange-red hue.
Uluru originally sat at the bottom of a sea, but today stands 348 m above ground. Surprisingly, 2.5 km of its bulk is underground.
Uluru is about 3.6 km long and 1.9 km wide, with a circumference of 9.4 km.
