Day 1: Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Cultural Centre and Uluru sunset
For those electing to start in Alice Springs, you will be collected from your accommodation (or nearest pick up point) for the drive to one of Australia’s most famous icons – Uluru.
Guests starting at Ayers Rock Resort will join the group and then travel the short distance to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The afternoon is dedicated to exploring this extraordinary monolith starting with an interpretive walk led by your guide, who will explain the Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa).
