The Red Centre of Australia is one of the country’s most stunning features and this Uluru Sunset Tour gives you the chance to see it at its very best. Delve into the desert and admire the remarkable landmark that is Uluru as it becomes plunged into golden light as the sun disappears beyond. On this tour, our professional driver and guide will pick up from the Ayers Rock Resort and comfortably transport you to the Uluru sunset viewing area so that you can get the ideal perspective on this astounding natural landmark.
First, we’ll travel deep into the charming Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park as your guide provides you with a range of wonderful stories and insights into this ancient part of the world. Rising in the distance is the 348-metre tall Uluru – and you’ll enjoy it in the best possible way – with a glass of sparkling wine and some tasty nibbles. Soak up the beautiful landscape and its most famous feature as you wander the viewing area. As time goes on, the sky strikes an incredible blend of orange, blue and purple with light spilling around the massive rock formation.
Each year, thousands of visitors make their way to the centre of Australia to experience this monolithic marvel, which is recognised around the globe as one of the Earth’s greatest natural wonders. Having emerged out of the ground more than 500 million years ago, it still provides a towering figure over the rest of the landscape that has become synonymous with Australia’s natural beauty. Meanwhile, Uluru provides outstanding cultural and spiritual meaning to the land’s traditional owners – the Anangu people – and your guide will be more than happy to discuss this ancient population. Uluru might be located in a far-flung remote location, but once you arrive, you’ll immediately realise that it was completely worth the journey.
Before the sun sets for good, make sure you capture a picture or two as this place is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We’ll then climb back aboard our coach and return you to the Ayers Rock Resort. Don’t forget, if you truly want to make your night one to remember, you can add an optional BBQ Dinner to enjoy as the sun goes down.
