WHAT TO EXPECT


Enjoy this overnight tour of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (Olgas) departing daily from Ayers Rock Airport or Ayers Rock Resort (Outback Pioneer). This tour includes Uluru Sunset, Sunrise, the Base walk and the Cultural Talk. You'll also visit Kata Tjuta for the Valley of the Winds walk and sleep in under the stars in a swag at Ayers Rock Camping ground.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Uluru (lunch and dinner)
You will be picked up after 11:30 am from either Uluru (Ayers Rock Airport) or the town of Yulara at Outback Pioneer (Ayers Rock Resort). Enjoy lunch and visit the Aboriginal Cultural Centre where you can learn about the Dreamtime, before starting your Uluru Base Walk.

Take in the spiritual significance of Kantju Gorge, Mutijulu Waterhole and Aboriginal Cave paintings before a guided Mala Walk.

Then, watch the sunset over Uluru. Enjoy dinner as you watch the colours change over The Rock.

Spend the night camping under the stars at the Ayers Rock Camp Ground in swags with hot showers and toilets. Tents are available.


Day 2: Uluru Sunrise & Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) (breakfast)
It's up early for sunrise at the Uluru/Kata Tjuta viewing area this morning.

Then, head to the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuta. Your guide will explain bush tucker and rock formations along the hike. 

You can be dropped off at 10:45 am at the Uluru (Ayers Rock Airport) if you have a flight out on day two. You can also be dropped off at the town of Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort) at 10.45 am if you want to spend another night at Ayers Rock. 

Free Airport Shuttles operate every hour from the Outback Pioneer YHA to the Ayers Rock Airport if you wish to spend the night and fly out of Ayers Rock on Day 3.

You will need 2 x large 1.5 Litre bottles to take on the tour. You will need at least 3 litres of water for the Kings Canyon hike and will more than likely drink 4 to 5 litres of water on this day. You will need the same amount of water for the Olgas hike on Day 2 and Ayers Rock hike on Day 3. Our buses carry 60 litres of water on board and your guide will most definitely guarantee you will not dehydrate on the hikes. There are several points during the tour to fill up your water bottles. All meals are included on tour. Please note you do not need to carry empty water bottles that you can fill at the hostel in morning before the tour and you will be provided with water during the trip.

Effective 01/11/2013 Wataarka National Park close the clock wise hike if the temperature exceeds 36 degrees. The alternative hike is the anti-clockwise hike that does not include the Garden of Eden and a swim in the water hole. The Rangers at Wataarka National Park prefer you do not swim for safety reasons. The level of water in the Garden of Eden water hole may vary from season to season depending on rainfall.

Summer (Nov-Mar) it is quite warm at night, around 15-25 degrees Celsius and 35 degrees plus during the day. Winter (May-Sept) it is a lot colder, usually around 1 degree Celsius at night and 15 to 20 degrees during the day. June and July can get very cold at night, often below zero

Summer (Nov-Mar) average over 30 degrees Celsius. During the peak of summer temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius or more. Winter daytime temperatures are pleasant, usually around 20-25 degrees Celsius.

Winter nights are often below zero degrees (May-Sept) so you will need a good sleeping bag. If you don’t have one of your own, you can hire one from us for $15.00. Ours are washed after every tour and are minus 10 degrees rated…nice and warm

Bring a small pack and leave your large pack at your Hostel if you are starting and finishing the tour in Alice Springs. If you are starting or finishing your tour in Ayers Rock (Uluru) you can store your luggage in our trailor during the tour. Shorts, T-shirts and good shoes during the day & a jumper for night time. Winter you can still wear shorts and a shirt during the day. However, you will need to bring warm clothes because it does get cold at night. Long pants, a good jumper, a beanie to keep your head warm and gloves are advisable. Regardless of the time of year that you are travelling you will need to bring a hat & sunscreen. Other things to bring include a towel, bathers, sunglasses, torch and toiletries.

A swag is made out of heavy duty canvas, sewn into a cocoon-like bag providing warmth, comfort and security - the ultimate of all bush beds! They have a 2 inch thick comfy mattress. You sleep inside your sleeping bag inside your swag so your body heat is trapped inside your sleeping bag and swag. A lot warmer than a tent!

We do have tents (without bedding) on the 2nd night at Ayers Rock Campground. Most campers choose to sleep in their swag under the stars as you do on the 1st night. We offer you a real Aussie outback experience sleeping in a swag under the stars. You simply put your sleeping bag inside & get cozy around the camp fire sleeping under a million stars.

If returning to Alice Springs, keep your larger luggage in your accommodation in Alice Springs & just bring a small bag on tour. If leaving our tour on Day 3 at Ayers Rock Airport, take all of your luggage with you. If being picked up on Day 1 at Ayers Rock Airport, you will have all of your luggage with you anyway.

Most people on our tours are between 18 to 45 years of age and International travellers. If you are young at heart & reasonably fit you will fit right in. If you travelling with kids - minimum age for kids is 9 years.

We often cater for Vegetarians. Please advise any special food allergies, gluten free diet or dietary requirements when booking.

All our Toyota Coaster buses are air-conditioned & carry a maximum of 21 people.
