Welcome to Uluṟu
Sit back and relax as you travel into the amazing Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. Your Driver Guide will provide details of the afternoon’s itinerary while you enjoy the amazing surrounds and incredible sight of Uluru in the distance.
Uluṟu – Kata Tjuṯa National Park
As you head toward the iconic Uluru, you’ll take in the sites of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. This incredible formation of rock domes extends six kilometres into the ground and is the remains of erosion that began more than 500 million years ago. It is understood that Aboriginal people have lived in this area for more than 22,000 years.
Wine and Nibbles
Once you’re settled at the Sunset Viewing Area, you’ll be served sparkling wine and nibbles while you begin to absorb the enormity and beauty of your surroundings. You can just relax or stroll around the Sunset Viewing Area to discover your own personal space to watch the amazing sunset.
Uluṟu (Ayers Rock)
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.
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. Be sure to have your Driver Guide take a photo of you with Uluru in the background – although they say that the memory will stay with you forever!

Uluṟu is also known as Ayers Rock; it was named by William Gosse in 1873 after Sir Henry Ayers.
Uluṟu'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.
Uluṟu originally sat at the bottom of a sea, but today stands 348 m above ground. Surprisingly, 2.5 km of its bulk is underground.
The rock was created over some 600 million years, and the Aborigines have been in the area for the last 22,000 years.
Uluṟu is about 3.6 km long and 1.9 km wide, with a circumference of 9.4 km.
