What To Expect
Learn about your one-humped, dromedary travel companions, brought to Australia in the 19th century, and contemplate how the outback pioneers traveled across regions of Australia. Now estimated to number 200,000 in the wild, these tame camels are well-trained to provide a comfortable ride.
Choose from sunrise, sunset, or express camel tours. Watch the desert come to life at dawn or dusk. If you’re short on time, take a morning or afternoon express camel ride for a taste of central Australia’s traditional transport. Finish with drop off at your hotel.
Sunrise Camel Ride: Take in the cool morning and watch the rising sun light up Uluru and the surrounding plains as you cross the desert on a peaceful camel ride through stunning sand dune country. After the ride, enjoy billy tea and freshly baked beer bread (damper) with quandong jam (outback native fruit).
Sunset Camel Ride: Set out at dusk for a camel ride and marvel at the deepening hues as the sun sets behind the desert plains, sharpening the monolithic outlines of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Return to the camel farm at twilight to enjoy sparkling wine, beer or soft drinks with snacks.
Morning or Afternoon Camel Express: For a shorter camel ride, cross the desert on a quicker "express" camel trip including views of Uluru, Kata Tjuta, and the outback landscape. Then visit the camel museum to learn more about the important role of camels in the Australian outback.
Note: the afternoon express ride is seasonal and only operates from April to October.
