Itinerary Day 1: Alice Springs – Uluṟu (Ayers Rock)
Travelling south you’ll stop to visit a camel farm where there is time for a short camel ride (own expense). Later stop to view Atila (Mt. Conner) often mistaken for Uluṟu, before arriving at Ayers Rock Resort.
This afternoon travel to the mystical 36 domes of Kata Tjuṯa. On the way, stop at a lookout for a panoramic view of the southern side of Kata Tjuṯa. Continue to the base of Walpa Gorge. Spend some time exploring the gorge and the unusual conglomerate rock formations. The walking trail through the gorge follows the natural creek bed between two of the tallest domes of Kata Tjuṯa. Late afternoon, travel to the Uluṟu sunset viewing area. Witness and photograph the striking colour changes of Uluṟu at sunset while enjoying nibbles and complimentary wine.

Add-on the Uluṟu Barbecue Dinner for $136. After sunset, join us under the stars at our exclusive venue. Enjoy sparkling wine on arrival, then dine on a menu of steak, lamb sausages, chicken skewers and garlic prawns, salads and a tasty dessert. All accompanied by a selection of wines, beers and soft drinks. There’s time for stargazing too (weather permitting).
