With the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park open again to visitors, we’re slowly welcoming travellers again to the area with our sunrise and sunset tours.

Following a shut down of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, our tours to this spectacular natural wonder were put on hold. As things slowly start to open again, we’ve recommenced our Uluru sunrise and sunset tours for travellers wanting to experience the magic of the Red Centre and gain a deeper understanding of the rich culture and history of this unique area.

  • Uluru Sunrise and Kata Tjuta from Ayers Rock

    Set the alarm because the Uluru Sunrise and Kata Tjuta tour is available again now. While getting up this early can be a struggle if you’re not a morning person, witnessing the change of colours over Uluru as the sun rises and illuminates the desert is worth getting out of bed for.

    We meet the tour just before sunrise and head straight to the lookout point. Enjoy a hot drink and some biscuits as the sun rises above the horizon, bathing Uluru and the surrounding desert in a warm glow. Once the sun is high into the sky, we travel to Kata Tjuta, the dome rock formations also known as the Olgas, to enjoy a walk through Walpa Gorge. You guide will share with you information about the rare plants and animals that inhabit the area and offer you a deeper understanding of the significance of this important site in local Aboriginal culture.

  • Uluru Sunset and Sacred Sites from the Rock

    Sipping a glass of sparkling wine as the sun sets behind Uluru is a bucket list item for many travellers to the Red Centre, and our sunset tour promises to make the experience an unforgettable one.

    The tour starts in the afternoon with a short walk around the base of Uluru to Mutitjulu Waterhole. This hidden desert oasis has provided water for the local people and animals for thousands of years. We then head to the Cultural Centre where you can admire cultural artifacts, crafts and artworks by the local Aboriginal people and maybe even pick up a souvenir. As the sun descends towards the horizon, we’ll get comfortable at the sunset viewing area. Sit back and relax as you enjoy a glass of Aussie wine and experience the magical change of colours over Uluru and the desert landscape.

What about the multi-day tours?

We understand that for many travellers, a one-day tour just isn’t enough. We’re working hard to offer our other tours in the Red Centre, but the continued restrictions on travel and the challenges of operating in a remote area means we might not be able to offer these tours for some time. We regularly update our Facebook page with the latest information on what tours are available, so like us to stay informed.

Like everyone else, we are looking forward to when this situation is under control and people can travel freely again so we can show people the amazing wonders of Uluru and the Red Centre.
