Uluru: Small Group Guided Tour with Sunset Refreshments

2. Uluru: Small Group Guided Tour with Sunset Refreshments

After pick up from Ayers Rock Resort, join your guide to explore the most profound and culturally significant monolith in Australia. The tour will travel through the outback landscapes to the entrance of the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. From this point, it is only a matter of minutes before the spectre of Uluru rises from the sand dunes to demonstrate its enormity and presence in this country. Your first step allows you a photographic opportunity of this amazing icon. With Uluru looming in front of you, journey toward the base. Walk with your guide to a place of tranquillity. The closer you wander the more you surrender to the realization of the sheer size of this monolith. As you drive around the base, your guide will take you to the entrance of Mutitjulu Waterhole, a semi-permanent watercourse nestled in the contours of Uluru. Here you will learn the Creation stories of Liru (poisonous snake) and Kuniya (python) as well as a number of other stories associated with other prominent Tjukurpa (dreaming) stories. You will see the rock art of the ancients and learn how Uluru was, and still is, a significant location for teaching young Aboriginal people. You will then adjourn to the new Talinguru Nyakunytjaku viewing area for sunset where you will observe an uninterrupted view of Uluru with Kata Tjuta in the background. See the colours of the rock and sky change before your eyes. Enjoy some sparkling wine and light, delicious refreshments. Your guide will then return you to your accommodation at Ayers Rock Resort.

Muck was a great guide who clearly knew his content. He was super friendly and really engaged with our four kids, answering all their questions. He was a fount of knowledge about Uluru, from the geological Origins to the fascinating cultural significances to the local Anangu people. Mick shared with us many of the important legends and stories and was very respectful of the several areas where some information and pictures are forbidden. Mick even dropped in a lost hat one of our kids left on the coach later that evening and sent us a direct message to ensure we picked it up at reception of our hotel! We finished up the day with a great view of Uluru at sunset, along with some light refreshments, soft drinks a for the kids and some nibbles for the adults.

This afternoon trip could reveal us all the important parts of Uluru. Giulia/Julia was an excellent guide with great knowledge about history, myths and nature. We really enjoyed the stories, the spots and the lovely sunset refreshments.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was very informative, the walks weren't too long, Mick's knowledge was amazing and the refreshments and the sunset put a nice end to the day. Would definitely recommend

Tour guide Wayne was amazing and helpful we had a great group of people and basically had Uluru to ourselves.
