Led by a professional tour guide, we’ll pick you up from the Outback Pioneer Hotel in Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort) and enjoy a freshly packed lunch as we make our way to the world-famous Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Our first stop of the day sees us take a walk through the Walpa Gorge and explore the remarkable Kata Tjuta. Also known as the Olgas, these massive domed rock formations make for a stunning setting as you get a great view of the Red Centre on the return hike.
Our next stop is the Aboriginal Cultural Centre, where you’ll learn about the local Anangu people and their traditions that date back millions of years. Built upon a sacred site that retains a special significance to the Anangu, the traditional owners of this land, you’ll have plenty of time to buy some souvenirs to remember your journey here.
Following this, we’ll head to Uluru (Ayers Rock) and take a guided tour along the Mala Walk. Heading along the base of the towering rock formation, you’ll roam the northwestern edge of the site and come upon several ancient examples of Anangu rock art. Taking a break for a moment, your guide will also discuss the spiritual Dreamtime stories that the Anangu people still recount to this day.
We’ll continue onwards by taking a drive to the Mutitjulu Waterhole, one of the only permanent sources of water that’s found within touching distance of Uluru. Following along the short trail to the waterhole, your guide will explain the importance of this site to the Anangu people and how it’s been used for hunting for generations. Meanwhile, the nearby caves are another opportunity to see the wonderful rock art that’s dotted throughout these landmarks.
Finally, we’ll end the day in the best way possible by sitting down for a sunset barbecue. The centre of Australia provides some of the most striking sunsets imaginable as the sky comes alight with beautiful colours – and we’ll be sure to soak it up with a glass of wine and some great food. Once the last light fades, we’ll drop you back to the Outback Pioneer Resort and bring this special one-day tour to a close.
