Ayers Rock (Uluru) Base and Sunset Tour (6 hours)

Following pickup from Ayers Rock Resort at 2:30pm or 3pm, depending on the season, you’ll make the short journey to Uluru and take a panoramic tour of the rock’s base. Your guide provides commentary that details Aboriginal culture and the sacred significance of Ayers Rock.

Then, continue to Kuniya Walk, where you’ll observe Aboriginal rock paintings and snap photographs of the scenic Mutitjulu Waterhole. Pay a visit to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Center and enter the Tjukurpa Tunnel, full of Aboriginal artefacts designed to enhance your understanding of the culture.

Before sunset begins to paint the sky with a fiery spectrum of color, make your way to a sunset viewing area to watch the sky surrounding Ayers Rock (Uluru) ignite, while enjoying a glass of wine and nibbles.

Upgrade: Australian Barbecue Dinner

Following the sunset, you’ll travel to an exclusive barbecue site in the heart of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, set amid red sand dunes and desert oaks. Feast on grilled meat and healthy salads accompanied by a glass of wine, beer, or orange juice, and followed by tea, coffee, and dessert.

Sated, you’ll take a leisurely stargazing tour and listen to Aboriginal legends and folktales, before drop-off at Ayers Rock Resort.   

Ayers Rock (Uluru) Sunrise, The Olgas (Kata Tjuta), and Walpa Gorge Tour (6 hours)  

Rise early for pickup from Ayers Rock Resort at 4am and travel straight to the sunrise observation area at Ayers Rock (Uluru). Watch the deep red hue of the rock reveal itself beneath the initial rays of the sun as you refresh with warming tea, coffee, or hot chocolate.

Then, proceed to The Olgas (Kata Tjuta) — 36 domed, red rocks of great cultural and spiritual significance among Aboriginal people — and marvel at the natural wonder. See, too, Walpa Gorge, home to walking trails replete with stunning lookout points, on a leisurely stroll before drop-off back at Ayers Rock Resort.

Upgrade: Day-Trip to Kings Canyon

If you’re an active traveler and want to make the most of Uluru’s stunning natural landscapes, add a day-trip to Kings Canyon onto your Ayers Rock itinerary.

Following morning pickup from Ayers Rock Resort, you’ll stop for breakfast at Kings Creek before embarking on a rewarding hike of the canyon, characterized by its red sandstone walls and lush pockets of vegetation.

Absorb stunning views of Watarrka National Park, descend to a green oasis known as the ‘Garden of Eden,’ and trek along the rim of the canyon. Your tour concludes with drop-off at Ayers Rock Resort.

very nice experience
glebowa

Our experience with Ayers Rock Combo trip was very good. The hotel we have stayed was clean and people working there very helpful. Buses always came on time and every driver/guide provided interesting information about the native flora and fauna. They were also taking about cultural tradition of Aboriginal people living in this area. During the trip we could explore a number of caves and see Aboriginal rock paintings. The King Canyon's walk was a very nice experience too. We were following the rim of the canyon to see breathtaking views.

Memorable Experience

If you are adventurous and want to see a spectacularly beautiful part of Australia I recommend this. To make the trip out here worthwhile buy the Combo package. AATKing tour company was first rate - drivers and guides were extremely knowledgeable and explained the history, geology and life in the outback. Kings Canyon is a must. We did the creek bed walk and our bus driver guide was an encyclopedia of knowledge explaining the flora and fauna. After we took a helicopter ride over the canyon. The starts are early but certainly worth it.

The tour company was very accommodating as our flight came right before it starts. Very convenient pick up from the airport to the hotel and to Uluru site and back. The site was magnificent...no shortage in that. The whole experience was limited though as far as getting around and learning more about Uluru and Kata Tjujta. The guides was knowledgeable, experienced and will gladly supply you with more information if you ask for it. The BBQ experience was good. We had a great time listening to stories and enjoying the food under the starts.

Rebecca B

The Ayers Rock Combo is a great way to fit in the must-dos at Uluru in just two or three days. The Uluru Sunset was particularly impressive, and really enjoyed walking a small part of the base. If you have time I would highly recommend adding the day trip to King's Canyon - spectacular and very worthwhile! We loved our time at Ayers Rock and would definitely recommend AAT Kings - everything was very organised and smooth! If I have the opportunity to go back to Uluru I would like to walk the full base of Uluru - that is one thing the combo was missing, however would still highly recommend the package as it still picks up all the highlights!

So here's the thing - Ayers Rock is HOT. There is virtually no shade. It is beyond buggy. They sell fly net hats for a reason. Do yourself a huge favor and buy one. They insist you take water with you. Drink it because heat exhaustion sneaks up on you and we had several folks in our group get into trouble. The walk at Kata Tjuta is rough and for anyone with mobility or stamina issues. None of these are the fault of this tour or fixable really so just be aware. Now for the good stuff! The aboriginal stories are fantastic and the scenery beautiful, especially at sunset. After dark the bugs go away and the bbq dinner was fantastic. The guides were lots of fun. The best part was the sky viewing after dinner. They turn off all of the lights at the site and millions of stars come into view. The guides have laser pointers and show you various constellations. Pickup and drop off was easy. Overall an Australian experience not to be missed.

This is a wonderful tour! We only had two days at Uluru and we covered it well by going on this tour. The champagne or other drinks and snacks at sunset were a surprise and one we enjoyed. Sunset was very special!!! The sunrise the next morning at Kata Tjuta was just as special. We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see these two places at the best time all day.

Autant le coucher de soleil vaut vraiment la peine, accompagné de l'apéritif en plus c'était assez magique, autant le lever de soleil n'a, à mon sens pas grand intérêt. Les visites étaient plus des marches avec deux-trois explications très intéressantes, mais rien de dingue non plus. J'aurais pu tout faire seule.
