This afternoon travel around the base of Uluru with a local Driver Guide. Learn about the native flora, fauna and intriguing cultural traditions of traditional owners, the Anangu, and discover an array of fascinating sacred sites. Join your Driver Guide for a walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole. You’ll explore a number of caves and view Aboriginal rock paintings as your Guide interprets their meaning and significance. Later visit Uluru – Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre where there is time to purchase some locally made Aboriginal art and learn more about the Western Desert region. Travel to the Uluru sunset viewing area, ‘Sunset Strip,’ and relax with sparkling wine and nibbles as the sun sets over the western horizon and the evening sky brings out the many shades of colour for which Uluru is renowned.

Rise early to drive through sandhill country towards Kings Canyon, stopping for a breakfast at Kings Creek Station. In Kings Canyon make the rocky climb with your guide to the rim of the canyon to be rewarded with marvellous views over Watarrka National Park. Or you may wish to explore the boulder-strewn canyon creek bed, an easier walk. Return to Ayers Rock Resort.

Travel to the Uluru sunrise viewing area. Watch the first rays of the sun set the Red Centre alight while enjoying a warming cup of tea or coffee. Then travel to the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). On the way enjoy panoramic views of the southern side of Kata Tjuta before arriving at the base of Walpa Gorge.
