On your vacation explore the fascinating surroundings of Australia’s Red Centre.
Kata Tjuta & Uluru Sunset Tour
Sit back and relax as you travel into the beautiful Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park. You’ll be amazed by the surrounds and incredible sight of Uluru in the distance.
Travel to the mystical 36 domes of Kata Tjuta. Walk the trail through Walpa Gorge following the natural creek between two of the tallest domes of Kata Tjuta. In the late afternoon travel to the Uluru sunset viewing area. Witness and photograph the striking colour changes of Uluru at sunset while enjoying nibbles and a complimentary glass of wine.
As you enjoy the view, your experienced Driver Guide will give you an overview of the fascinating history of Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park. The Aboriginal people have lived in the area for 22,000 years, so there’s plenty of history to cover.
Just 40 kilometres to the west of the iconic Uluru, we’ll take in the sites of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. When you stop at a viewing platform that boasts the most spectacular views of Kata Tjuta, be sure to have your camera at the ready.
Walpa (meaning windy) Gorge is a lush desert haven for plants and animals. The gentle but rocky track will lead you into a world of rare plant species and lush evergreen shrubs known as Spearwood. The Walpa Gorge Walk takes around one hour and here you’ll have time to explore at your own pace and take many memorable photographs.
Wine and Nibbles
After the Walpa Gorge Walk, you’ll head off to the Uluru Sunset Viewing Area. En route, you may see some dromedary camels casually strolling through the park. On arrival at the Sunset Viewing Area, you’ll be served from a selection of Australian wines and nibbles while you absorb the enormity and beauty of your surroundings. You can just sit and relax or stroll around the area to find your own personal space to watch an amazing Red Centre sunset.
Arguably Australia’s most recognisable and fascinating icon, Uluru (Ayers Rock) stands 348 metres high, however, most of its mass is below ground level. You’ll be overwhelmed by its monolithic size, presence and inherent spirituality.
As the sun sets over the western horizon, you’ll be witness to the majestic presence and many shades of colour for which Uluru is most famous. Be sure to have your Driver Guide take a photo of you with Uluru – although they say that the memory will stay with you forever!
