Uluru Base

** Uluru Base Tour

Your experienced Driver Guide will join you on a coach tour around the base of Uluru and give you details on its geology and incredible history. You'll be fascinated by the Aboriginal stories that go back many thousands of years.

** Kuniya Walk

You'll then head to the Kuniya Walk where your Driver Guide will lead you to the famous Mutitjulu Waterhole. The waterhole provided a key source of water for the Aboriginal people in the area and had been in use for many thousands of years. You'll see wonderful Aboriginal rock paintings and come to understand their significance.

** Uluru - Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre

The Uluru - Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre houses an amazing collection of original ceramics, paintings and punu (woodwork) that provide an insight into the unique and spiritual culture of the Anangu, the traditional custodians of Uluru. You can take home your own unique piece of punu.

** Wine & Nibbles

You'll head off to the Uluru Sunset Viewing Area. En route, you may see some dromedary camels casually strolling through the park. On arrival at the Sunset Viewing Area, you'll be served from a selection of Australian wines and nibbles while you absorb the enormity and beauty of your surroundings. You can just sit and relax or stroll around the area to find your own personal space to watch an amazing Red Centre sunset.

** Uluru Sunset

Arguably Australia's most recognisable and fascinating icon, Uluru (Ayers Rock) stands 348 metres high, however, most of its mass is below ground level. You'll be overwhelmed by its monolithic size, presence and inherent spirituality. As the sun sets over the western horizon, you'll be witness to the majestic presence and many shades of colour for which Uluru is most famous.
