Overnight Uluru Camping Safari
Explore the intriguing landforms of Kata Tjuta and witness a spectacular sunrise at Uluru, staying in a well equipped permanent campsite. This package is great way to feel closer to nature and The Red Centre - one of Australia's deepest cultural locations.
Running short on time but longing to see two of the Red Centre's star attractions? Worry not. This trip, designed for those with only a few days to spare, includes time spent at both Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
Explore the wide valleys and winding chasms of Kata Tjuta/The Olgas on foot during a guided hike, then admire an Uluru sunset, glass of bubbles-in-hand, before sitting down to a starlit spread of delicious local produce – our 1,000 Star Dinner. Get a gauge of the world's largest rock up close on a morning walk around its base, learn of the traditional stories associated with it from a local indigenous guide, and admire Aboriginal arts and crafts on display in the Uluru Cultural Centre. This overnight adventure packs in stacks.
Day 1: Yulara/Kata Tjuta/Uluru (Ayers Rock)
The small town of Yulara came to be when Commonwealth authorities finally decided establishing motels at the base of Uluru – a sacred indigenous site – wasn’t the coolest thing to do. A plot of land midway between the rock and Kata Tjuta was staked out, a town built, and Yulara’s permanent population of 887 now caters to approximately 300,000 visitors each year. Today you’ll be one of them, as this is where this trip kicks off. Driving first to Kata Tjuta, you’ll have the option of heading out to explore the site’s 36 domes and learn about its ecological and geological significance from your guide along the way; so it’s definitely a walk worth doing if you’re up to it. As the evening sets in, settle down with a glass of bubbles for one mesmerising display of colour, light and shadow during an Uluru sunset. Afterwards, we’ll wine and dine you by star and candlelight during a ‘1,000 Star Dinner’
Notes: If you don’t want to camp, there’s the option of staying in motel style accommodation. Please see trip code PAYM2.
• Permanent safari camp (with shared facilities) (1 night)
Day 2: Uluru Sunrise and Indigenous experience
Today it’s off to Uluru to see what all the hype’s about. You’ll be getting up early this morning… but that’s when sunrise tends to happen in this neck of the woods. After watching the sun rear up over the world’s largest slab of sandstone, explore Uluru at your own pace. When you get back, an indigenous guide will explain a bit about the site’s great significance on a cultural interpretive walk, which you’ll then have the opportunity to learn more about at the Uluru Cultural Centre.
Notes: A compulsory $35 transfer fee will apply. If the levy isn’t paid in advance then you’ll have to make payment directly to your leader. Please ask the reservations team for more details.
