Know More about this tour

Your day trip to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park starts in the early morning when you depart Alice Springs by air-conditioned coach. Head southwest on Highway 87, passing by the West MacDonnell Ranges. After about an hour and 15 minutes of driving, stop at Stuarts Well, a typical Outback roadhouse where you will enjoy a light or hot breakfast.

Back on the bus, traverse the remote landscape of endless Outback plains, enjoy a view of Mt Ebenezer and stop for morning tea (typically a cool drink or hot billy tea, served with a lamington, a traditional Aussie cake) at the Mt Conner lookout point. Continue the drive to Uluru, admiring sand ridges covered in desert oak trees and watching for huge road trains (semi trucks pulling several trailers of freight).

When you arrive at Uluru, a UNESCO World Heritage site known as Ayers Rock in English, youll take part in several activities that will introduce you to the history, culture and geology of this massive sandstone rock formation. Enjoy guided walks around the entire base of Uluru while learning about its legends; hear about Tjukurpa art on the Mala walk; see Aboriginal rock art on the walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole; and hear about the customs and bush food of the Anangu people.

Visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre to learn more about Aboriginal culture and art, and then head to Kata Tjuta (also known as Mt Olga or the Olgas), the other large rock formation in the national park, for more walking along trails that lead to valleys and secluded watering holes. Return to Uluru in time for sunset, during which you'll soak up the glow of the sinking sun while you sip sparkling wine or juice and feast on a BBQ dinner of meats, salad and bread.

After dinner, make the 6.5-hour drive back to Alice Springs, where your day trip ends.

  • Great day - long trip.

  • Wonderful experience, well worth the long day. Tour guides kept us informed, well fed and watered, plenty of interesting stops. We went for Uluru, the Olgas were a huge lol bonus, spectacular! Bus comfortable, great vision from within, bring a water bottle - bus carries cold water. Sunset dinner was lovely, highly recommend this tour.

  • Excellent tour! A long day but very informative tour guides.

  • This day trip was absolutely fantastic. Eric and Pete, our drivers/guides were brilliant! Sooo much information and knowledge on the area, it was fantastic. Well worth the very long day 18 hours. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone.

  • Amazing trip, hepful and informative guides. The barbecue at the end of the day watching the sunset over Uluru was worth it.

  • Great and entertaining, lot to see, those 2 guys where fantastic -as drivers and tour guides too, highly recommend

  • Despite I was told my tour booked did not have enough travelers so I was transferred to Emu Run. Surprisingly it was a satisfactory day trip. We had two guides/drivers whom are both very professional. They explained to us in very details about the tourist attractions, history and dreamtime stories. Very informative day. All meals were included during the day and they were not bad. We had nonstop flow of snacks and fruits in between. Everything was taken care of perfectly. I would definitely recommend Emu Run to other friends who are traveling to Uluru.

  • Our guides for the day were Matt and Luke.
    It is a long day but they were organised, enthusiastic, informative and helped us get the most out of our experience of visiting these sites.
    We now know more about camels than we ever would have dared to ask or expect!
    As for dinner, they cooked up a storm before the sunset and next we off on the journey back to Alice with the Wanderers!!

  • The tour was well organized and executed. The guides were very knowledgeable and well versed in the Australian culture and commons. We were well taken care of with food and drink. The sunset viewing of Uluru and the BBQ was outstanding. If you can not afford the high pricing of staying out at the Rock then this is the tour for you.

  • An absolutely fantastic trip! It was a long day but I wouldn't change a thing. All of the stops were great and just the right amount of time. The driver and guide were both fantastic. The BBQ at Uluru for sunset was icing on the cake. Very glad we did it!
