Private Tour: Uluru and Kata Tjuta Day Trip from Alice Springs
This is a long day, but why not do it in the comfort of your own private vehicle with your very own driver guide. Visit both Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta in one day, with pickup and drop-off in Alice Springs included.
Get ready to embrace the myth and mystery of the Red Centre with a private luxury tour from Alice Springs.
In one single day you can take an incredible journey from Alice Springs to the open plains of Kata-Tjuta to see the blushing ruby colors of the world famous Uluru.
Experience a landscape swathed in ancient folklore, alive in color and blessed with rich heritage with a once in a lifetime private Uluru day tour.
The mesmerizing adventure begins with a sunrise pick up from your Alice Springs accommodation, nibble on a light breakfast on board the luxury 4WD as you glide towards the world heritage wonder of Uluru and the Kata-Tjuta National Park.
From the second you glimpse the rising red towers, the scrubby flash of green and the wide open sky you are sure to fall in love with this sacred spot on earth. After a delightful packed lunch and cultural adventure in the Mount Ebenezer Art Gallery, you can stretch your legs with a walk through the Walpa Gorge. Admire the rising domes of Kata-Tjuta, breathe in the scent of the wilderness and feel small in the vastness of the great plains.
The magic of Uluru isn’t all about the landscape but the people too. Next on the Uluru Day Tour you can discover the cultural splendor of the locals at the Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Hand crafted from mud brick materials, you can find out all about the Pitjantjatjara People with a traditional welcome, interactive exhibitions, and the chance to buy locally created art work and souvenirs.
Visit the Mutitjulu Waterhole located at the back of the imposing Uluru. Stand in awe at the clear waters that have quenched the thirst of many beasts and men for thousands of years. The rising seemingly blood stained cliffs are a rare sight to behold and the wild cries of kestrels circling overhead only add to the magic. The waterhole is home to the Wanampi, an ancestral water snake and the nearby caves over spill with traditional aboriginal art.
As the sunlight starts to dwindle it’s time to discover the essence of Uluru with a sunset dinner. When the sky floods with color the majestic Ayers Rock blushes in many hues of gold, rose and the darkest ruby reds making it a remarkable sight for all who catch it. Raise a glass of bubbly, chow down on some of the best Australian BBQ and soak up the splendor of the vibrant dunes and the desert plains.
Finish with a return journey to Alice Springs but the memories you made out in the rolling landscapes of Kata-Tjuta are sure to stay with you forever.Book now
