Ayers Rock Resort

4-Day Outback Adventure - Uluru & Kings Canyon

Discover the best the Australian outback has to offer in four adventure-packed days. Get up close to the ancient monolith of Uluru (Ayers Rock), explore the massive ochre domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and climb to the rim of Kings Canyon and descent into the spectacular Garden of Eden.

Ayers Rock Resort features four hotels and a campground, from the premium Sails in the Desert hotel to the comfort of the 3 -star Outback Pioneer Hotel & Lodge, accommodation catering to every possible taste and budget. All tours and activities pick up and return at your hotel reception.

DAY 1

  • Fly into Ayers Rock Airport and take the 10-minute courtesy transfer to your hotel
  • Explore Uluru from the back of a Harley Davidson, and witness the changing colours of the outback as the sun sets
  • Experience the do-it-yourself BBQ at the Outback Pioneer BBQ and kick back and enjoy the nightly entertainment at the Outback Pioneer Bar

DAY 2

  • Wake early and join the Desert Awakenings tour. Before sunrise travel by bus into the outback, where a light breakfast is served as the sun rises over Uluru. The tour provides an introduction to the natural and cultural landscapes of this remarkable region and includes a visit to Mutitjulu waterhole in the shadow of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and stops off at the Cultural Centre
  • Enjoy lunch back at the resort and visit the Mulgara Gallery, located at Sails in the Desert, where you get to meet and watch talented artists from the 'Artist in Residence' program at work
  • After lunch discover the massive ochre domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Stroll into the grand recesses of Walpa Gorge and appreciate why Aboriginal people found this place so important. Return back to Ayers Rock Resort in time for the award winning Sounds of Silence dinner
  • Prior to sunset, you'll be collected from your hotel, and taken to a secluded sand dune in the desert. As a didgeridoo player weaves his magic enjoy a welcome drink and a selection of outback-style canaps. As the sun sets, feast on a BBQ buffet of authentic Australian delicacies. Attention then turns to some of the world's best stargazing, as our star talker takes you on a tour of the spectacular southern night sky

DAY 3

  • Rise early for a full day tour that will take you through the sand hill country to Kings Canyon. The Kings Canyon Rim Walk begins with a challenging 500-step climb. Upon reaching the summit marvel at the breathtaking views of Watarrka National Park and into the canyon itself before descending into the green oasis of the 'Garden of Eden'. The total walk is 6km and will take around 3.5 hours to complete. The walk is rocky and steep in places and is recommended for those with a good level of fitness. Alternatively, you may wish to explore the boulder-strewn bottom of the gorge on the short 2.6 km Kings Creek Walk.
  • Dine at one of the many restaurants the resort has to offer before retiring early for a pre-dawn camel to sunrise tour

DAY 4

  • This morning discover the great Central Australian desert from the back of a camel and enjoy billy tea and freshly baked beer-bread as the sun rises over your final day
  • Before returning home, take to the skies and gain a bird's eye view over Uluru and Kata Tjuta during a scenic helicopter flight
