Immerse Yourself in a Mindful Celebration of Culture and Nature at Dawn

$125 /adult, $75 /child. For travel between 1st Aug 2024 - 31st Mar 2025

Connect with Country during this immersive sunrise experience. Sunrise Journeys shines a light on three prolific female Anangu artists who have come together to create a bespoke artwork that depicts their deep connection to culture and Country. Before the glowing silhouettes of Uluru and Kata Tjuta are revealed, the artwork is brought to life, utilising the vast desert landscape as a natural canvas.

As the red earth warms under the rising sun, take a seat on the sustainably constructed floating platform overlooking Uluru and Kata Tjuta, and watch the artwork as it is recreated on the vast, dark desert landscape below using cutting edge laser and light projection technology. Indigenous iconography - similar to those commonly seen in dot paintings - begin to gently ebb and flow across the land.

Following the display, enjoy a hearty breakfast of native flavours paired with an Australian chai tea.

Not suitable for children 4 years and under.

Tour departure approx. 1 hour prior to sunrise.

Tour duration approx. 2.5 hours

Wheelchair accessible on request.

This experience is a result of a collaboration between three renowned Anangu artists - Selina Kulitja (Maruku Arts), Denise Brady (Kaltukatjara Art), and Valerie Brumby (Walkatjara Art) - along with Anangu musician and composer Jeremy Whiskey, and expert visual experience creator Mandylights.
