Why you'll love this trip

  • The ancient formations of Kata Tjuta and the monumental Uluru are synonymous with the quintessential Australian landscape

Is this trip right for you?

  • Temperatures in the Red Centre can be extreme. During the day the weather can be very hot so it’s important to bring the necessary sun protection, such as sunscreen, sun hat and extra layers, and to drink plenty of water. In the evenings it can get cold, so bring base layers and warm clothing.

  • Camping may not appeal to everyone, although a proper bed, linen and electricity are provided. Motel accommodation can be provided for those who don’t want to camp.

Itinerary

Start the day by visiting the 36 red rock domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), getting up close to this ancient geological formation. Get to know the domes, dunes and gullies on a walk through the Domes of Kata Tjuta. We make our way to Uluru (Ayres Rock) as the sun sets; enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and watch the colours of the rock change. In the evening, a 1,000 star dinner is awaiting you back at camp. With the red earth beneath your feet and the starry sky overhead, sit down to a candlelit spread of locally sourced food and wine. Spend the night in twin share permanent tents, with comfortable beds, linen, towels, lighting and cooling fans provided.

An early start today is rewarded with an Uluru sunrise. While the morning is fresh, enjoy a walk around the base of Uluru. After your stroll, we walk to the cave paintings near Mutitjulu Waterhole at the base of Uluru. You will be in the hands of an Anangu guide who will share the stories of this unique landscape and explain the Art, the Culture and connection to Land. The on-site Cultural Centre also houses an extensive collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and crafts for you to browse. Perhaps purchase some art and craft of the First Peoples of Australia at the Uluru Cultural Centre before ending your tour at the Ayers Rock Resort. If your flight departs before 12:30 pm, you may require a private transfer to the airport and you may have limited or no time to explore the Cultural Centre.

Special Information
The Anangu people have dissuaded visitors from climbing Uluru for decades; as traditional owners of the land they feel a deep responsibility for everyone who travels to the area. In 1998 we were among the first tour operators to stop climbing Uluru.
The Intrepid Group are proud to be involved with local communities in Uluru and to have an ongoing commitment to providing employment for the Anangu people. You show respect when you choose not to climb Uluru, but walk with Anangu throughout the area and share their stories instead.
