Why you’ll love this trip

  • Witnessing an Uluru sunset is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Have your camera ready when taking in this spectacular sight. 
  • In a 24 hour time frame, visit one of the most well know icons in the world. Save time and accommodation before and after your trip by flying directly to Ayers Rock Airport (very close to Yulara), and only minutes away from Uluru. By starting and finishing your tour at Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort), you’ll save eight (12) hours of driving-time compared to our tours that starts and finishes in Alice Springs. By starting and finishing your tour at Yulara you will also save two nights of Alice Springs accommodation too.  
  • Wander through the iconic domes of Kata Tjuta, gaze in awe at the sacred rock of Uluru. 
  • Eat under the stars and camp within privately owned sites on the red earth of the Outback and experience the true magic of the Red Centre. 

Is this trip right for you?

  • Are you starting and finishing your tour in Yulara? If so, this is the trip for you! The ‘Overnight Uluru Adventure’ starts and finishes in the resort town of Yulara, which is only minutes away from the Ayers Rock Airport and Uluru. However, this tour does not visit Kings Canyon. Please note: If the start and finish locations do not suit your plans or you would also like to experience Kings Canyon, please select one of Adventure Tours Australia’s other options here. 
  • This isn’t a basic camping experience, as you’ll be treated to creature comforts such as comfy mattresses, linen, power and a fan. 
  • Temperatures in the Red Centre can be extreme. During the day the weather can be more than 40 degrees Celsius in the shade (the Australian sun is very strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection, and drink plenty of water. During the months of June, July and August the over-night temperatures can drop below zero degrees Celsius, so bring some thick socks, layers and a warm jacket. 
  • This trip requires a moderate level of fitness as it involves a lot of walking, allowing you to really get among nature. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing. 
  • On most days of the trip, you’ll spend several hours driving through very remote areas of the desert. Crank up the tunes and sit back to enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel. 
  • Group participation is important on this trip, so you’ll be required to help with the preparation of meals and cleaning up. These are the kind of tasks that bring a group closer together.

Itinerary

Uluru is the heart of Australia and represents so much about this country; its size, its beauty and its culture. Shortly after you arrive, the unmistakable Uluru will emerge from the earth as one giant boulder. Only a short drive awa, you’ll be able to walk off your lunch at Kata Tjuta (The Olga’s). With its 36 various-sized domes, it provides quite a contrast to Uluru. You’ll get to know the landscape pretty well on an afternoon hike between the domes. As the evening unfolds, enjoy a light snack as the sun slowly sets casting a variety of earthy tones across Uluru. The perfect end to a remarkable day is awaiting you back at camp, as you enjoy a delicious spread of food with your group. If the weather permits, sit outside under the stars.

Day 2: Uluru    

An early start this morning is rewarded with an Uluru sunrise as the sun hits the icon like a beacon, before the light floods the surrounding landscape. Your guide will take you to one of the significant cultural sights of Uluru, outlining Anangu rock art and passing on one of the creation stories of the site. While the morning is fresh, the time is yours to enjoy the self-guided, full base walk of Uluru, taking in all of the textures and valleys up-close, which isn’t evident from afar. Once you’ve had lunch, perhaps purchase some art at the Cultural Centre, hand-crafted by local First Nation Peoples of the Western and Central Deserts.
