Itinerary
Experience the tranquility of the pre-dawn land under a canopy of stars. Then watch the amazing transformation of colours and life as the desert awakens with Uluru and Kata Tjuta as your backdrop” -

Andrew Davidson, Tour Operations Manager

Travel away from the crowds to a secluded sand dune to watch the spectacular sight of sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta. In the company of your expert guide and with no more than 20 other passengers, Desert Awakenings is designed to introduce you to the natural and cultural landscapes of this remarkable region.

You arrive at your private dune top viewing area well before the sun breaches the horizon. As your traditional bushman's breakfast is being prepared over the fire, your guide will explain the retreating star scape above. Enjoy a cup of Billy Tea and Damper as you watch the sunrise bring you spectacular views of Uluru and the vast landscape stretching as far as the eye can see. After breakfast your 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.

Next we depart for Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and our first stop is the Cultural Centre, a vibrant and engaging place of learning where the local lore of the Anangu (Aboriginal people) is explained in fantastic detail. Next we are off to the Rock where we take a short walk into Mutitjulu waterhole. A visit here will help you to appreciate its cathedral like proportions and why it is such a powerful and spiritual place for visitors and Anangu alike. Your guide will explain some of the rock paintings and some of the stories from the creation period as told by the Anangu people.

Desert Awakenings is a much sought after experience that delivers insight into the ancient landscape, ecology, culture, heritage, and history of what is now regarded as Australia's spiritual heartland.

Absolutely fantastic guide, made up completely for the fact it was a misty morning!

An absolutely wonderful location with perfect view of the Rock from our room. Did feel though that the room was not 5* especially considering the cost.
