1.5 Day 4WD Dingo Dreaming Alice Springs to Ayers Rock Tour Itinerary - 1.5 days
Alice Springs to Uluru
Your adventure begins with a stop at the Outback Camel Farm at Stuarts Well where you can ride a camel (own expense). After turning off the Stuart Highway a stop is made at Mount Ebenezer, which is a good place see and buy Aboriginal art and craft. Don’t be tricked, the first monolith you will see is Mount Conner (Atila) – not to be confused with Uluru which is still some 100km away.
(For those commencing the tour at Uluru we will collect you from the Outback Pioneer Hotel or meet you from your flight at the airport).
After a stop for lunch and our arrival at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, we travel to the base of Uluru where your guide will lead you on an interpretive walk, hearing of the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa). Continuing on, we meet our local Aboriginal Guide who will provide a once in a lifetime authentic Indigenous cultural experience sharing stories and passing on their traditional methods of painting that plays an important part in the sustainability of Aboriginal Culture. Starting with a walk to the cave paintings near Mutitjulu Waterhole, at the base of Uluru, be guided by the Anangu hearing stories of this unique landscape and the connection between the art, culture and the connection to the land. We conclude at the Cultural Centre, where you may explore the displays and learn about the flora and fauna of this unique area.
Experience the famous changing colors of Uluru at sunset, away from the crowds, complete with sparkling wine and nibbles. It's a great time to kick back and contemplate the day and the vastness of the desert. Afterwards settle in at our remote private camp, complete with our signature Endless Star dining experience before retiring to your swag under the amazing night sky or your comfortable safari tent complete with beds.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta
Get up early for an Uluru sunrise which is as dramatic as sunset and can be viewed close-by your campsite. You will see the sunrise over both Uluru and Kata Tjuta, away from the crowds at the public viewing area. After breakfast and a short drive to the land-form known as Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), an aboriginal word for “many heads”, you will explore the domes of which there are 36 in total. Here your guide will lead you on a hike through the dry creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness of the ‘Valley of the Winds’. After the return transfer to Ayers Rock Resort or Airport your Red Centre experience comes to an end. (B)
