Uluru, Australia’s most recognisable landmark, dresses up big time for sunset. Take this guided Uluru Sacred Sites & Sunset tour and see how a rainbow of colours in varying shades light this giant structure as darkness envelops its surrounds. As your guide gives you the low-down on the land and its heritage, enjoy panoramic views of Uluru & Kata Tjuta with a glass of sparkling wine in hand!
Touted as Australia’s signature icon, Uluru, is a sandstone formation sculpted by nature’s hand that rises over 348 metres above sea level. Standing tall for over 500 million years, this ageless spectacle is considered sacred by its native Aborigines. With a base circumference of over 9km, you’ll need some time before you get over its enormity.
Travel to Uluru on board a comfortable coach to make it in time for sunset, amid roving outback and desert sights. Stock up on tales and historic facts about Uluru and its surrounds relayed by your guide en route.
Get ready for outlying views of Uluru and Kata Tjuta (Olgas) as you travel ahead. Your coach will take you around the base of Uluru once, before stopping at the Kuniya Walk.
Start your walk accompanied by your guide to reach the famous Mutitjulu Waterhole. A valuable water source for the native Anangu, the area around the waterhole bears proof of their heritage and is marked by ancient Aboriginal rock paintings. See art depicting information on the indigenous and European history of Uluru, before moving on.
Visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre next to explore a vast collection of original ceramics, paintings and punu (woodwork). All these preserved craft forms are indicative of the unique and spiritual culture of the Anangu, the traditional custodians of Uluru. Buy one to take home a souvenir of Aboriginal culture.
Next, head off to the Uluru Sunset Viewing Area. If lucky, you’ll see camels casually strolling through the park en route. Enjoy sparkling wine and nibbles as you relax and wait for nature’s show to begin! See more of Uluru and learn about its inherent spirituality from your guide, in the meantime!
As twilight approaches, Uluru is painted in rainbow colours with nature’s brush! Appreciate views which are worthy of numerous clicks. Your guide will also click a great picture of you with Uluru as the backdrop, to help you treasure the memory forever! See what the hype about Uluru is all about on an exclusive sunset tour with interesting pit stops!
