Uluru - Ayers Rock

When you arrive at Ayers Rock Airport, a transfer will pick you up and take you to your hotel.

Without a doubt, Uluru is Australia’s most famous mountain and the continent’s landmark. The sandstone formation rises 348 meters high. It’s about 450 kilometers from Alice Springs, in the middle of the Kata Tjuta National Park.

The sacred mountain is essential to the Aboriginal people, so visitors are not allowed to climb it. But the sight of the enormous sandstone monolith is worth the visit. As the sunrise or sunset puts on a color show in the sky, notice how the mountain changes colors.

Hike around Uluru with a guide. Discover the many rock paintings of the Aborigines who have lived here for over 20,000 years. There are also other free activities you can sign up for, like a dance workshop, arts and crafts, or boomerang throwing.

For dinner, enjoy an open-air atmosphere with “South of Silence.” On a platform jutting out into the middle of nature, enjoy an array of local wines and small bites. Watch the fantastic Uluru view pass you by as you listen to stories about Aboriginal culture. The sounds of a didgeridoo and a magical dance performance will make this a night you’ll never forget. As the main course, enjoy a gourmet barbecue with Australian specialties, such as kangaroo and crocodile meat and regional wines. And dessert includes a glass of port wine, coffee, or tea. Enjoy the absolute tranquility of this moment and watch the billions of stars dazzle in the clear, Australian sky.

Overnight with dinner in Ayers Rock, Australia

Set your alarm clock early and drive to the Uluru viewpoint, “Talinguru Nyakunytjaku,” where you will have a front-row seat to a stunning sunrise. The day’s first sun rays will greet you as they arise over the fabulous red mountain and bathe the surroundings in soft red tones. Sip on your morning coffee and tea and soak in these unforgettable sights.

Then you will continue your drive to the 36 mountains of Kata Tjuta, also known as the “Olgas.” On the way, you’ll quickly stop to enjoy some of Kata Tjuta’s incredible southern views. Another great photo opportunity is at Walpa Gorge, where you can explore the spectacular gorges and gorgeous valleys.

In the afternoon, hop onto a bus for a tour around Uluru. Drive to the Mutitjulu Walk close to the waterhole, where you can see the Aborigines' ancient rock paintings. Your guide will tell you stories about their culture, history, and local flora. You can also visit the Kata Tjuta Cultural Center, where you can learn more about Aboriginal culture and their arts and crafts.

In the late afternoon, drive back to the Uluru Viewpoint for an unforgettable sunset bathing the Ayers Rock in many shades of red. Don’t forget to bring your charged camera! Round off the moment with a delicious Australian wine.
