Before embarking on your journey first and foremost a rental car is a must to get around, there are no taxi's, no ubers and no transport other than pre-booked coaches which can be expensive. A car is a great way to explore your surroundings, spend a day wandering Kings Canyon, delve into a base walk around Uluru or set out to the cluster of domed mountains that's The Olgas. Self discover or book into the below guided tours which are highly recommended.
Field of Light - As you approach the warmly lit entrance you'll be captivated by the spectacular 50,000 illuminated sphere display that changes colour as you move through the pathway. Designed by Internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro the installation comes to life under the night sky. A magical experience not to be missed, now extended until March 2018.
Dessert Awakenings - Set out before Dawn and capture Uluru and the distant Olgas in the most majestic light. As the stars fade and the dessert slowly transforms to daylight, listen to stories from the creation period as told by Aboriginal ancestors. Enjoy an inclusive breakfast before setting out on a base walk and visiting the Mutitjulu waterhole and viewing Aboriginal cave drawings and dot art.
For Luxury Accommodation:
