Essence of Uluru

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,026

FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of Australia’s Red Centre by visiting and learning about two of the country’s most iconic areas, Uluru/Ayers Rock and Kata Juta/Olgas.


This 3 day tour is perfect for visitors wanting a more in depth look at the rich mythology and culture of Central Australia and its iconic sights, including Ayers Rock.

Visit Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. Supposedly the home of the great snake king Wanambi, some geologists believe these 36 towering domes are the eroded remains of a single monolith even larger than Uluru. Either way, they are a breathtaking outback sight.

    Preferred Hotel

SEIT Kata Tjuta Domes

Travel to Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) where your guide will reveal the many attributes of this diverse environment. Arriving at Walpa Gorge you will walk between the mighty conglomerate domes and hear how these 36 domes that makeup Kata Tjuta have evolved over millions of years. Your guide will return you to your hotel in time for those joining Sounds of Silence or Tali Wiru dinner or Field of Lights.

Duration3 Hours

Sounds of Silence Dinner

Entered into the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame, Sounds of Silence offers the best of the Red Centre distilled into four magical hours - an evening of dining under the sparkling outback sky.
The Sounds of Silence experience begins with canapes and chilled sparkling wine served on a viewing platform overlooking the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. As the sun sets and darkness falls, listen to the sound of a didgeridoo and join your table of fellow travelers for an unforgettable dining experience.
The attentive staff will keep your glass full with a quality selection of Australian wine and beer while first course is served. As the night sky twinkles to life, help yourself to a bush tucker inspired buffet that incorporates native bush ingredients.
Settle back and listen to the resident star talker decode the southern night sky. Locate the Southern Cross, the signs of the zodiac, the Milky Way, as well as planets and galaxies that are visible due to the exceptional clarity of the atmosphere.
As you wind down after a delicious dinner, you are offered a choice of tea, coffee or port. In winter, guests gather around a campfire to savour a special treat of hot mulled wine.

Duration5 Hours
Day 2

SEIT Cave Hill Day Tour

This is a once in a lifetime exclusive invitation to visit the remote Pitjantjatjara Lands of Central Australia for a cultural immersion experience exploring the Aboriginal Songlines (stories) of the creation ancestors. Journey by 4WD deep into the desert to meet your Anangu hosts, the Traditional Owners of Cave Hill, at the site of the Seven Sisters Tjukurpa (creation stories). This is an Indigenous cultural experience that will provide you with an insight into everyday Aboriginal life. The highlight of the tour is the magnificent cave paintings -- the most significant art site in Central Australia -- where the creation story of the Seven Sisters is graphically illustrated. Climb to the top of the hill above the cave to take in the view, which presents a 360 degrees panorama taking in Uluru and the imposing Musgrave Ranges.

Duration10 Hours
Day 3

Desert Awakenings

Experience the tranquility of the pre-dawn land under a canopy of stars. Watch the amazing transformation of colours and life as the desert awakens with Uluru and Kata Tjuta as your backdrop. In the company of an expert guide, Desert Awakenings is designed to introduce you to the natural and cultural landscapes of this remarkable region.
Watch the distant domes of Kata Tjuta come into view and enjoy a traditional Aussie breakfast of bacon and egg rolls, tea, coffee and homemade damper with golden syrup in the open air. After breakfast, the guide will explain the natural history of the region, and as the daylight reveals the myriad of animal tracks in the sand an insight into what activity took place during the night.
Once the sun is up, enjoy a guided tour at the base of Uluru. First stop is Kuniya where you will take a short walk to the Mutitjulu waterhole. A visit here will help appreciate its cathedral like proportions and why it is such a powerful and spiritual place for visitors and Anangu (local Aboriginal people) alike. The guide will explain some of the rock paintings and stories from the creation period as told by the Anangu people. Next stop is the Cultural Centre, a vibrant and engaging place of learning where the local lore of the Anangu is explained in detail. Return to your Ayers Rock Resort hotel.
