Firstly we travel to Uluru, Australia’s most memorable monument, in the Kata Tjuta National Park. We’ll head straight to the sunrise viewing area to catch the monolith as it changes colour as the sun peaks in the sky. Enjoy a warming cup of tea or coffee here to keep you refueled.
Afterwards, your guide will offer a historical overview of Uluru, going into detail about the Aboriginal tribes that have resided in the area for thousands and thousands of years. This all-encompassing introduction will give you an insight into just how magnificent Uluru really is.
We’ll then head to a viewing point 40 kilometres away from Uluru, where you can marvel at the unique shapes of Kata Tujta (also known as the Olgas). These unusual rock formations cast an eerie silhouette against the skyline and make for a perfect photo opportunity.
The day will finish with a short walk through Walpa Gorge, where you can stop and enjoy the plants and animals that call the area home. Learn more about the rare plants and evergreen shrubs that characterize the area as your guide shares fascinating stories about the local wildlife and the geology of the gorge itself.
