Day 1: 1 Day Uluru Tour - Itinerary

Our professional tour guides show you the real outback they love and enjoy so much. We collect you from outside your Alice Springs accommodation at approximately 6am and head to our first stop at Erldunda (home of the Emu) for a buffet breakfast. After a quick stop we provide you with a freshly made packed lunch to eat on the drive to the World Heritage listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Kata Tjuta We travel to Kata Tjuta (Olgas) for the first walk of the day into Walpa Gorge. Embrace the domes of Kata-Tjuta on your first walk of the day, while taking in the views of the open plains on the return walk. Aboriginal Cultural Centre We then visit the Aboriginal Cultural Centre where you will have time to learn about the local Pitjantjatjara people and buy some souvenirs. The Cultural Centre was built with 90,000 mud bricks with the help of the local Anangu people. It is built on a sacred site and has very special meaning to the local Anangu people. Uluru – Mala Walk We then head to the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock), which is next to the entrance to the Uluru climb. From here one of the two guides will take you on a guided Mala Walk. The Mala Walk follows the north-west side of Uluru, where there are many fine examples of Anangu rock art, and you can experience the wonder of the sheer vertical walls. The guide will tell dreamtime stories of the Anangu People. Uluru – Mutitjulu Waterhole We drive from the front of Uluru around to the Kuniya car park, which is at the back of Uluru. From here we start our second Uluru guided walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. The guide will take you along a short track to the Mutitjulu Waterhole – home of an ancestral water snake called Wanampi. The guide will share stories of local traditions and explain how the Anangu people traditionally used the waterhole for hunting. The caves containing rock art were used in the past by Anangu still alive today. The Sunset BBQ The scene has been set, the highlight of the day, the breathtaking Uluru sunset with a glass of bubbly and a delicious Aussie BBQ. A spectacular day never to be forgotten. After sunset we set off to Alice Springs.
