Should your adventure begin in Alice Springs, our team will be ready to pick you up right from your local accommodation. Embarking early, we'll make our way to Erldunda, the renowned 'Home of the Emu.' Here, you'll have the opportunity to grab a hearty breakfast to start your day.

For those joining us from Ayers Rock Resort, your journey will begin with a convenient pickup from your resort accommodation. We visit the Aboriginal Cultural Centre, a profound place of learning and cultural exchange. The Centre, built from 90,000 mud bricks with the aid of the local Anangu people, stands on a sacred site rich in indigenous significance. It's a perfect place to deepen your understanding of the Pitjantjatjara community and purchase unique souvenirs.

Mid to Late Afternoon
We then proceed to the iconic Uluru for the Mala Walk. Climbing Uluru is not permitted due to its deep cultural importance. This guided walk along Uluru's north-west face reveals ancient Anangu rock art and stories.

Afterward, we head to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. During this guided walk, you'll learn about local traditions, see rock art in caves used by the Anangu, and hear tales of Wanampi, the ancestral water snake.

As the day winds down, prepare for the Sunset BBQ – a quintessential Australian experience at Uluru. Marvel at the stunning sunset over Uluru, complemented by sparkling wine (or your choice of BYO beer) and a sumptuous Australian BBQ dinner.

Following the dinner, we'll return to the Ayers Rock Resort for those concluding their journey there. For others, the adventure extends with a trip back to Alice Springs, ensuring a comfortable drop-off at your local accommodation.

Join us for a day filled with cultural discovery, natural wonder, and unforgettable Australian experiences.
