10:30am (Oct-Mar)

Arriving at Ayers Rock Airport, you’ll be transferred to the resort (flights to arrive prior to 1.30pm).

Visit the Uluru–Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre to learn more about the Western Desert region, then tour the sacred sites around the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock) with a local Driver Guide, learning about the customs of the traditional owners. Walk to sacred Mutitjulu Waterhole, and view ancient Aboriginal rock art while your guide explains its significance. Later, relax with sparkling wine as the sun sets over Uluru, bringing out the myriad shades of colour for which the world’s largest monolith is renowned.

Hotel: Outback Pioneer Hotel, Desert Gardens Hotel or Sails in the Desert Hotel, Ayers Rock Resort, 2 nights.

Rise early to drive through sandhill country to Kings Canyon. Make the steep rocky climb to the rim of the canyon for spectacular views of Watarrka National Park. If you wish to take an easier, shorter walk instead, you will explore the boulder-strewn canyon floor, getting up-close to the native plants and birdlife that call this part of the world home. Return to Ayers Rock Resort.

Included Meals: Breakfast

Rise early this morning to witness the first rays of the sun setting Uluru aglow. Then travel to the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). On the way, enjoy panoramic views of the southern side of Kata Tjuta from the dune viewing platform. On arrival take a shady walk through Walpa Gorge, which follows the natural creek bed between two of the tallest of the soaring red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta.

This afternoon you’ll be transferred to Ayers Rock Airport. Flights to depart after 12.45pm.
