New Tour – 1 Day Uluru Tour from Alice Springs



 Explore the myth, legend, and history of one of Australia’s most visited and iconic landmarks on one of our new Uluru day tours. This one-day extravaganza gives you a snippet into the natural and cultural heritage of Uluru, and delves into its indigenous past against a backdrop of rich red sands and breath-taking scenery.
Whether you’re a nature lover or a history buff, our new Uluru tours offer a taster of everything so you can begin to understand the complex narratives that surround Uluru itself.
Our Uluru day tours start in the picturesque landscape of Alice Springs and take you through a kaleidoscope of colours, views, and stories. We start out at sunrise to make the most of the day, stopping off on the way at folkloric hotspots and points of beauty and interest.

Highlights

Mount Ebenezer Art Gallery
You’ll have the opportunity to explore local, indigenous art at this cute, cultural gallery, where you’ll learn more about creative practices and the history behind them.

Walpa Gorge

Sprawling out in an awe-inspiring horizon of jutting peaks and dipping valleys, Walpa Gorge is a bastion of natural beauty set amongst the beautiful Kata-Tjuta National Park. Stand at the edge of the world, breathe in the aromatic wilderness, and soak up the vast, incredible plains.

Aboriginal Cultural Centre
This popular heritage hotspot is a must-visit on Uluru tours, showcasing the exemplary works of the local indigenous people as well as offering an insight into their struggles, successes, and lifestyle. Here, you’ll learn about the Pitjantjatjara people and you’ll have the chance to pick up the perfect souvenir.  

Uluru
After learning about the cultural splendour of the area, you’ll move on to the impressive reaches of Uluru itself. Sitting proud like something from another world entirely, you’ll be able to get up close to the glittering red rock, discover centuries-old rock art, and walk in the footsteps of people from times-gone-by.

Mutitjulu Waterhole
As well as exploring the sheer beauty of Uluru, you’ll get to explore some of its many natural facets, including the clear waters of Mutitjulu Waterhole and the surrounding caves that boast wall-carved aboriginal art.

Spectacular Sunsets
Before you head back to Alice Springs, you’ll have the chance to marvel at the changing colours of Uluru at sunset, as it fades from ruby red to delicate pink to dusty gold. Whilst watching this incredible show of light and colour, we’ll put on a traditional Australian barbecue in the shadows of Uluru itself so you can delve into the foodie world of the country whilst bathed against the glow of vibrant dunes and sprawling desert plains.
