Itinerary

Welcome to Uluṟu - Kata Tjuṯa National Park

Sit back and relax as you travel into beautiful Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. Be amazed by the surrounds and incredible sight of Uluru in the distance on your way to Talinguru Nyakunytjaku – the Uluru sunrise viewing area.

Talinguṟu Nyakunytjaku & Sunrise over Uluṟu

Simply translated, ‘Talinguru Nyakunytjaku’ means ‘to look from the sand dunes’. The platform offers an incredible view through the dunes and stunning desert landscape as the sun rises over Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Make your way on to the viewing platform to see many kilometres into the distance, providing an ideal photo opportunity. Watch the first rays of the sun set the Red Centre alight, while enjoying a warming cup of tea or coffee.

Historic Overview

Your experienced Driver Guide will give you an historical overview of Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. The Aboriginal people have lived in the area for 22,000 years, so there’s plenty of history to cover. 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 incredible size, presence and inherent spirituality.

Panoramic Views from Viewing Point

Just 40 kilometres to the west of iconic Uluru, we’ll take in the sites of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. When you stop at a viewing point that boasts the most spectacular views of Kata Tjuta, be sure to have your camera at the ready.

Walpa Gorge Walk

Walpa (meaning windy) Gorge is a lush desert haven for plants and animals. The gentle but rocky track will lead you into a world of rare plant species and lush evergreen shrubs known as Spearwood. Your Driver Guide will lead you on a one hour walk through the gorge, sharing stories of local flora and fauna, and the geology of this amazing formation.
