Highlights of Uluru Including Sunrise and Breakfast
As you travel towards Uluru its vast shape rises from the sand dunes in the early dawn light highlighting its presence in this country. Your guide will take you to a special location to watch the sun rise over this amazing monolith. You will learn the Creation stories of Liru (poisonous snake) and Kuniya (woma python) and hear about the Mala people. After a picnic breakfast you will visit Mutitjulu Waterhole and then drive around the base of the Uluru before returning to the resort. This three hour highlights tour is perfect for those short on time.
Your knowledgable guide will meet you at the entrance to your accommodation at Ayers Rock Resort.
Departing the resort the tour will travel through the landscape to the entrance of Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. From this point it is only a matter of minutes before the spectre of Uluru rises from the sand dunes to demonstrate its enormity and presence in this country.
At our first stop you will enjoy an outback breakfast and watch the sun rise over this amazing icon.
With Uluru looming in front of you, your guide will escort you into Mutitjulu Waterhole, a semi-permanent watercourse nestled in the contours of Uluru. Here you will learn the Creation stories of Liru (poisonous snake) and Kuniya (woma python) and their battle for control of Uluru as well as a number of other stories associated with other prominent Tjukurpa (Creation Time) stories.
You will see the rock art of the ancients and learn how Uluru was, and still is, a significant location for teaching young Aboriginal people.
You will then be taken on a drive around the base of Uluru before returning to your accommodation at Ayers Rock Resort.
