  • Uluru Field of Light Sunrise Tour with Hot Drinks & Biscuits

    1. Uluru Field of Light Sunrise Tour with Hot Drinks & Biscuits

    Rise early to travel the short distance to a desert location overlooking Uluru. Your driver/guide will provide insights and the background to the art installation.

Watch the amazing transformation of colours and life as the desert awakens, while enjoying tea, coffee or hot chocolate.

You’ll have an incredible view through stunning desert landscape as the sun rises over the Red Centre. As the natural light brightens the landscape, the Field of Light will dim for the day. Capture some amazing photos from this unique raised...

    Amazing experience and worth the early start! Make sure to wear super warm clothing, we took ugg boots and parkas because even in August it was freezing that early. The tour guides were very friendly, fun and informative, and the bottomless hot chocolates and biscuits really hit the spot.

  • Uluru & Kata Tjuta 25-Minute Helicopter Experience

    3. Uluru & Kata Tjuta 25-Minute Helicopter Experience

    See both the beauty of Uluru and Kata Tjutaon this helicopter experience. This tour will showcase Kata Tjuta, which means 'many heads'.

Ensure that you don't miss out on seeing the entire formation by taking a ride in by helicopter. With the wide spread of the domes and local restrictions due to sacred sites, access from the ground is restricted to only 75% of Kata Tjuta.

    Embark on a trip that combines this experience with viewing Uluru, and which will leave you with cherished memories and photographs that will last a lifetime.
