Uluru Half-Day Tour: Aboriginal Rock Art, Optional BBQ Dinner image
Join your Guide for a drive around the base of Uluru. Continue to the Kuniya Walk where you will be escorted to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Enjoy a glass of wine and canapes while watching the sun set over Ayers Rock.
Travel around the base of Uluru in the comfort of your coach as your Driver Guide provides commentary about the numerous sacred sites and features to be found at Uluru.
Continue to the Kuniya Walk where your Driver Guide will escort you to the beautiful Mutitjulu Waterhole. View Aboriginal rock paintings and learn about the area as your Driver Guide points out some native flora and explains the Aboriginal and European history of Uluru.
Later visit the Uluru – Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, where you can learn about Aboriginal culture and see Aboriginal arts and crafts.
In the late afternoon we travel to the Uluru sunset viewing area. Witness the striking color changes of Uluru at sunset while enjoying nibbles and a complimentary glass of wine.
If option selected, you will then be transferred to the Aussie BBQ site. The site is within the Uluru National Park, adjacent to Uluru – Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre set amongst red sand dunes and desert oak trees providing a peaceful desert setting. The site is located far enough away from the resort lights to provide a clear view of the stars in the southern sky (weather permitting).
Once at the site, you will enjoy a variety of Australian meats and salads, accompanied by a glass of wine, beer or orange juice (menus are subject to change). After dinner, tea, coffee and dessert will be served and your guide will conduct a tour of the night sky, describing and pointing out some of the visible constellations with the assistance of a high beam spotlight (weather permitting). The guide will also explain some Aboriginal stories that relate to the stars before you return to Ayers Rock Resort.

This tour is very convenient and packs a lot of sightseeing into a fairly short time. Pickups and drop-offs are at the major hotels in Ayers Rock. The sunset on Uluru is spectacular. We skipped the BBQ dinner which is optional and at an additional cost. The tour includes one fairly short hike, which is optional if you'd prefer not to walk or are disabled. You should buy and wear a fly net (approx. $10) if you visit in the warm/hot months.

We enjoyed the tour! The tour guides Jason and Adam were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Fabulous trip with a good guide - we stopped at a couple of places for photo opportunities and information about the rock carvings and formations. Then did a great base walk which came with explanations about the flora and the the rock carvings and the stories associated with this part of the rock. It was really interesting. Being near the rock was moving.

The sunset was a comfortable affair from an excellent vantage point with snacks and fizz. Very nice. The actual changing tones of the rock and the surrounding area as the sun set was pretty stunning.

I would do this again happily.

No sunset but amazing photos of waterfalls on the rock. Apparently very few people experience this, just beautiful.

Outstanding in every way! This was the perfect way to see Ayers Rock. The guides were extremely knowledgable. We walked in to two areas, went to the cultural center, drove around the entire base, had a sunset cocktail hour, fabulous Aussie Bar-b-cue complete with kangaroo and all you care to drink, then a star talk and orientation which was beyond spectacular and even a fiery meteor shot across the sky to complete our night!

Very informative and absolutely breathtaking. Be prepared for very hot. But thats nature.

We were expecting the sunset to be behind the Rock. Didn't really have much of an effect, but overall, the tour was good and well run.

This was an ok trip. Frankly, it would have been better if I had rented a car and drove around myself. The driver and tour guide were very kind and friendly, but didn't really add any more info than we already got from the visitor's center. I had opted for the BBQ dinner afterwards - that was a mistake. The food was ok, but the weather was freezing cold July, and in the end everyone huddled under the few gas-lamps to keep warm. The BBQ could be a nice option in the summer, but in the winter, I wouldn't recommend it.
