Uluru (Ayers Rock)
Welcome to Ayers Rock! On arrival at the airport you will be transferred to your hotel on board an AAT Kings coach. Visit Uluru - Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre where there is time to purchase some locally made Aboriginal art and learn more about the Western Desert region. Later travel around the base of Uluru with a local Driver Guide. Learn about the native flora, fauna and intriguing cultural traditions of traditional owners, the Anangu, and discover an array of fascinating sacred sites. Join your Driver Guide for a walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole. You'll explore a number of caves and view Aboriginal rock paintings as your Guide interprets their meaning and significance.

Travel to the Uluru sunset viewing area, 'Sunset Strip' and relax with a glass of wine and Nibbles as the sun sets over the western horizon and the evening sky brings out the many shades of colour for which Uluru is renowned. Please Note: If you are arriving via a Red Centre Connection or Flight, you may not have time to check into your hotel room before your afternoon tour departure time. Please have a Day Pack ready to go which includes the following items - Appropriate walking shoes, hat, sunscreen, warm jacket during the cooler months & a minimum of 1 litre of water.

Booking With Global Journeys
Again Juliet rose to the occasion! I told her what I wanted to do and she arranged it! It was a one night stay so we were constantly busy, but that was the plan! I was a little disappointed in the Pioneer Lodge, but that had been my choice! I thought the check in was unorganised and the buffet was so overpriced! But the accommodations were fine!
