Top 10 Can't Miss Experiences In Uluru
There are more than 101 things to see, do, try and experience at Uluru. We've pulled together our top ten list of tours and experiences for when you visit Australia's spiritual heart.
1. Take in a Bird's Eye-view of Uluru
To fully appreciate Australia’s vast desert landscape and the natural wonder of Uluru, you need to experience it from the air. Fly high over Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to witness the awesome spectacle of this iconic monolith.
2. Dine under the outback sky at sounds of silence
Ditch the typical dinner for an evening of dining under the stars. Your Sounds of Silence experience starts on the dune top with canapes and sparkling wine as you watch the sun set over Uluru with the didgeridoo playing in the background. As darkness falls, join your table of fellow explorers for a delicious three-course bush tucker inspired buffet. Then sit back and relax as our resident star talker takes you through the Southern Night sky and points out the Southern Cross, signs of zodiac, galaxies and planets.
3. Set your pulse racing with skydive over Uluru
Looking for an adrenaline rush? Get ready to see this iconic rock like you’ve never seen it before. Combine the spectacular views of Uluru, Kata Tjuta and far beyond with the rush of jumping out of a plane at 12,000 feet with an Uluru skydive.
4. Ride high on the back of a camel
Just as the early pioneers did, ride high over the rich red sand dunes and explore the great Central Australian desert on the back of a camel. Watch the desert come to life in the morning or see the changing colours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta at dusk on an Uluru camel tour.
5. Zoom around the rock on the back of a Harley
Are you a thrill seeker? Do you want to try something different? Imagine seeing Uluru for the first time from the back of a late model Heritage Softail Harley Davidson. Join Uluru Motorcycle Tours for a fun-filled adventure on the back of a Harley Davidson Motorcycle or a 3 Wheeler Trike.
6. Segway your way around the base of Uluru
Take in Uluru in all its glory as you travel around the full 10km base of Uluru on a Segway. This is a fun and easy way to get around the full circumference of this iconic rock. Why walk when you can Segway!
7. Taste Australian Bush Tuck
Join a free Bush Food Experience and learn about Australian native bush foods with a tasting of seasonal seeds, fruits and spices. Your knowledgeable guide will describe how for centuries the Indigenous people used the bush for food.
8. Romance and the fine dining in the middle of the outback
Escape for an intimate dinner under the outback sky at Tali Wiru. Instead of walls, this open-air restaurant offers magnificent views of Uluru and the stillness of the desert at night. Enjoy champagne and canapes, watch a didgeridoo performance, indulge in an exquisite four course dinner paired with the finest wines, and listen to a star talk and Indigenous storyteller tell stories of the world's oldest living culture.
9. Learn the ancient artistry of Aboriginal dot painting
Join a local Indigenous artist and learn about the dot-painting techniques and the different symbols depicting the Tjukurpa (creation/dreamtime) stories. You’ll also have a go at creating your own dot-masterpiece to take home as a memento of your stay.
10. Walk through a field of 50,000 lights in the middle desert
Covering an area the size of nine football fields, watch as 50,000 radiant frosted-glass spheres light up the desert as Uluru falls into darkness. The Field of Light, by internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro is a truly magical and tranquil experience not to be missed. This exhibition is open until the 31st of December 2020.
