On your vacation explore the fascinating surroundings of Australia’s Red Centre followed by a true Aussie-style barbecue dinner near Uluru.
Uluru Sunset and Kata Tjuta and BBQ Dinner
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.
As you head toward the iconic Uluru, you’ll take in the sites of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. This incredible formation of rock domes extends three miles into the ground and is the remains of erosion that began more than 500 million years ago. It is understood that Aboriginal people have lived in this area for more than 22,000 years.
Wine and Nibbles
Once you’re settled at the Sunset Viewing Area, you’ll be served sparkling wine and nibbles while you take in the enormity and beauty of your surroundings. You can just relax or stroll around the Sunset Viewing Area to discover your own personal space to watch the amazing sunset.
Arguably Australia’s most recognizable and fascinating icon, Uluru (Ayers Rock) stands 380 yards 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 witness the majestic presence and many shades of color for which Uluru is most famous. Be sure to have your Driver Guide take a photo of you with Uluru – they say that the memory will stay with you forever!
Aussie Barbecue Dinner Under the Stars
Relax in the heart of the rugged Red Centre desert and savor the mouth-watering flavors of beef, kangaroo and sizzling gourmet sausages.

After dinner, enjoy a cup of billy tea with a delicious dessert. Relax and admire the sight of the sun sinking below the desert plain, gradually revealing a magnificent outback night sky.
