Day Activity
1 Welcome to Uluru

Feel the stirring of something bigger than you as you arrive in Ayers Rock Resort (flights to arrive prior to 2.00pm), your launchpad to Australia's fiery heart in the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. This afternoon, travelling to Uluru as the day fades, the outback sun bids a fiery farewell. This is the perfect backdrop for a Welcome Reception with sparkling sundowners, while overlooking Uluru.

  • Dinner with wine
  • Sails in the Desert Hotel, Ayers Rock Resort, 2 nights
2 Uluru

Under the cover of darkness, wander through 50,000 magical handcrafted frosted glass spheres of light, in colours changing from ochre, deep violet, blue and gentle white. Then make your way to the dune top and watch in awe as the sun pops up in the distance behind Uluru, flooding the landscape with light. Skirt the red walls at the base of Uluru and hear timeless stories, see rock art and visit the Mutitjulu Waterhole, once an important water source for the Aboriginal people and animals in the area. Experience the magnificence of the 36 red conglomerate rock domes that form Kata Tjuta, and take a guided walk through Walpa Gorge, following the natural creek bed between two of the largest domes. Kata Tjuta has great cultural significance for the Anangu people, specifically for Anangu men.

  • Breakfast
3 Uluru – Kings Canyon

Leaving Uluru behind travel across desert landscapes stopping at Kings Creek Station, a vast farming property, for lunch. Immerse yourself in Indigenous culture on a visit to the Wanmarra Aboriginal Community and learn about the Luritja and Pertame people’s spiritual connection to the land. Discover bush food and medicine used for spirituality and healing. The flickering glow of this evenings fire under the canopy of a starry southern hemisphere sky is the perfect accompaniment to your Under a Desert Moon Local Dining Experience. This degustation dinner with matching wines is the perfect indulgent end to the day.
