Spice up your trip to Uluru with these fantastic, adrenaline inducing activities!

  • Helicopter Flights over Uluru

    Enjoy Uluru from above with a scenic helicopter flight. See the outback landscape like never before and take in the sweeping views of vast red land.

    Choose from a selection of flights including Uluru and Kata Tjuta, and sunrise or sunset flights. Take in the formation from above and really see how large it is. The red desert never seems to end and the sprawling landscape provides views you’ll never forget.

    Helicopter flights are a great option for those looking for an exciting areal adventure that doesn’t involve jumping out of a plane!

  • Skydive over Uluru

    In the past fifteen years the popularity of Skydiving has really increased. Now a common gift for friends and family, step your skydive experience up a level and drop beside Uluru.

    Social media has helped to boost the public perception of skydiving and indoor alternatives provide an anxiety free introduction to skydiving. Now, you can slowly work up the courage to take the outdoor jump. A skydive here is practically a two for one experience. Pay for a skydive, get a free scenic flight over Uluru and Kata Tjuta!

    Tandem dives, that is with a qualified instructor, will see you free falling from 10,000ft before calmly sailing down to Earth with a parachute for approximately five minutes. A bit nervous? No worries, you can opt for a shorter free fall, spending more time peacefully descending to the ground.

    For an even more beautiful view, book a sunset or sunrise dive. As the horizon burns orange watch as Uluru changes colour, contrasting against the bright sun behind it. You’ll free fall for thirty seconds, but don’t be fooled it’ll feel much longer than that!

  • Camel riding

    Perfectly suited to the Northern Territory’s hot, dry climate, camels make for the perfect ground transportation. Join a tour and ride through the red desert, with the stunning Uluru and Kata Tjuta as your backdrop.

    Choose from short day trips or longer sun set experiences. Learn about these fascinating animals and the ways in which they work the land in Australia. Their introduction to the continent in the 1860s is also a fascinating story. It is believed that Australia has the only population of wild or feral one-humped camels in the world.

    If you’re visiting Uluru in May, be sure to check out the annual camel race! The Uluru Camel Racing Cup is two days of outback fun. Enjoy the camel races as they compete in heats for positions in the main event, the Camel Cup. Frock up in your racing best and enjoy a weekend of racing, markets and good old outback hospitality.

There are plenty of awesome adrenaline pumping activities for you to do at Uluru. With something to suit everyone from small rushes to jaw dropping highs, you’re sure to find the perfect way to step up your Uluru experience.
