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.

  • A truly fantastic adventure. An early pick up at 6.10am followed by a 2 hour drive and then breakfast. This was typical roadside fare, Aussie style, and pretty filling. Arrived at Kata Tjuta and walked up the rock trail to have a closer look. But this is a massive rock formation and is better viewed from a distance. At Uluru there is a short walk through the cultural centre to learn a bit of local history. We then walked round the base of Uluru, saw rock paintings and heard more about the dreamtime. The BBQ was very good, so was the bubbly!
    At sunset the colours of Uluru change from orange to brown and back. But truthfully, the sunset itself was much better.

    Sorry I don't have pictures to show yet.

  • Very long day on a standard bus - you will be kind of sore at the end of the day. However, many good stops to allow that you have a chance to stretch. The hosts fill up a part of the time with interesting commentary but not all. Had a great tour of the Rock itself and a very nice dinner. Would do it again or even better go from the village at Ayers Rock instead of Alice.

  • Very long trip,bit disappointed about Ayres Rock as we never saw any sunset over it.BBQ was good and the tour guides were very helpful,kept us fed and watered.

  • It is a long day. The drivers were delightful. The breakfast was great. The rock is very interesting. The seats were comfortable. I would recommend this tour.

  • We were well fed and watered the whole trip! All you need to bring is a 500 ml. bottle as they provided the water. Fly nets ,sun cream and good walking shoes are necessary. We saw all the sites as listed although I would have preferred a little more time at the cultural centre at Uluru.
    The guides were informative and helpful, this was a English speaking tour and a lot of people could not understand the commentary as English was not their first language this resulted in these people talking to each other in their own language at one point I had to ask them to stop as I couldnt hear the guide.

  • This is the ultimate Red Centre day trip..
    We drove for 4 hours through the red desert to Kata Tjuta and Uluru.
    Even saw wild Emus and Camels!
    The two lads who took the tour were brilliant and made sure we stayed hydrated the whole day. The bbq as the sun set over Uluru was the highlight.

  • A long day, but worth the effort. The only problem was that the bus driver turned back about l/2 hour into the trip to pick up two people at a hotel in Alice Springs and that made the day even longer. That being said, we are happy we took this tour and learned about Uluru.

  • Not enough words to say how awesome this trip is. It is a trip not to be missed!!

  • Fantastic tour. The whole experience was enjoyable, the trip, the tour guides, the food and the one and only spectacular Uluru.

  • A great tour to Uluru - started early in the morning and stopped smack bang in the middle of Oz for a hearty breakfast - After breakfast we continued on our journey - long straight roads and finally we saw a red rock in the distance - not Uluru so some fun had by all. The tour guides were light hearted, safe drivers and v informative. The tour around the Olgas Kata Tjuta was fantastic - some great photo opportunities. Uluru next and again commentary was v informative. Great to walk around and view this huge monolith. Then off to our site for dinner and watch the sunset over Uluru. The boys prepared a delicious meal with wine to accompany - beautiful images of Uluru during the sunset and then back to Alice Springs. Certainly recommend this trip for anyone with limited time to spend at Uluru and Olgas. Emu Experience tour guides were great.
