The adventure begins from the Outback Pioneer YHA or the Ayers Rock Airport. Our first stop in the Uluru/Kata Tjuta National Park is the Cultural Centre where an introduction to the Aboriginal Dreamtime (Tjukurrpa) and its significance to the Anangu people is given. From here we head to Uluru (Ayers Rock) for a guided walk to learn about the ancestral creation beings that are said to have helped shape the landscape that we are immersed in. We drive to the sunset viewing area to bask in the beauty of Uluru’s colour changes and enjoy a classic Aussie bush dinner. The day finishes with an incredible view of the stars as our constellations emerge and you hear the ancient stories about them.
Sunrise and Kata Tjuta
We rise early from the comfort of our swags and leave the campsite heading for sunrise over our second formation Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Breakfast is served as you watch the first light peeking over the top of the domes. As the sun begins to light the way, you are taken on a walk through the deep and mysterious valleys. Here you learn about the geology of the Central Australian Desert and the flora and fauna it contains. The tour ends back at the Ayers Rock Airport or the Outback Pioneer YHA ready for your flight home. By now you will be a fully qualified “Rockstar” and able to tell everyone else about your experiences and the magic that is the Uluru/Kata Tjuta National Park.
