You'll have the opportunity to try riding one (own expense). Stop to view the flat-topped Mt Conner before arriving at Ayers Rock Resort.

Day 2: Uluru Sunrise - Mutitjulu Waterhole - Uluru Climb - Kings Canyon
Rise early and enjoy as the day's first light strikes Uluru. Warm up with a coffee or tea as you take in the quiet of the Australian Outback. Take a tour the base of Uluru with your guide or climb the rock. Next, travel to Mutitjulu waterhole and see cave paintings and hear the legends of Python Dreaming. Visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre where you can learn more about the indigenous history and culture, and see traditional arts and crafts on display.

Day 3: Kings Canyon Guided Rim Walk - Alice Springs
Enjoy a guided walk to the rim of Kings Canyon and through the 'Lost City' and 'Garden of Eden' (requires a good degree of fitness). See the towering walls and unique plant life. An alternative easy walk along the canyon floor is available. This afternoon travel through the vast cattle properties of Central Australia stopping at Kings Creek Station before arriving in Alice Springs at approximately 6.30pm.

Respecting Indigenous Culture
Visits to Indigenous sites may change at short notice, due to the cultural and ceremonial obligations. The Anangu (Aboriginal landowners) regard Uluru as a sacred site and strongly discourage climbing the rock.

Loved the Sunrise at Uluru and the sunset too. On different days. At the sunrise they had hot drinks and cookies. At the sunset wine and chips and dips. So unexpected and well done. Totally enjoyed the hikes through the canyon and outback. The guide was so knowledgeable and answered all questions. We also saw a demonstration by Aboriginese on the use of tools and other implements. Just fascinating. I also purchased an original painting. Just beautiful. Great trip. Well planned and run. The Hotels were also great. No complaints had a great time.
