Know More about this tour

Your all-inclusive, full-day tour starts with early morning pickup from your Alice Springs hotel. Travel through the West MacDonnell Ranges on your comfortable air-conditioned coach to Erldunda Roadhouse where you have your first rest stop for a buffet breakfast.

Arrive around mid-day in Yulara where your guides provide a packed lunch to eat during the drive to the World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Then start your first walk of the day at Walpa Gorge, a distance of 1.5 miles (2.6km). Along the way, get an amazing perspective on the stunning dome-shaped rock formations of Kata-Tjuta, a sacred site of the Aboriginal people.

After your walk, visit the Cultural Centre, built with the help of local Aboriginal people. Learn from informative displays and your guide about the Aboriginal Pitjantjatjara people and the natural and cultural history of the area.

Next, head to the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and your guide will lead you on the Mala Walk, which follows the northwest face of Uluru. During the walk, see fine examples of Aboriginal rock art, marvel at sheer vertical rock walls and hear stories of the Aboriginal people.

Back at the coach, drive around Uluru to reach a short track that leads to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Take a short guided walk to the waterhole, which legend says is home to an ancestral water snake named Wanampi. Learn from your guide about Aboriginal customs as you take in the shimmering pool of water and surrounding red rock.

Now for the highlight of the day, head to the Uluru sunset viewing area for an Aussie barbecue. Watch the magnificent colors of the sunset at Uluru as you sip a glass of bubbly and feast on tasty tucker (food).

After sunset, reboard your coach for your return to Alice Springs.
