As this Short Break departs at 7.00am, accommodations will need to be pre-booked for the previous night. See Atila (Mt. Conner) today as you make your way to Ayers Rock Resort. View the amazing collection of Indigenous paintings at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Aboriginal Cultural Centre, then tour the base of Uluru with your expert Driver Guide. Continue to see ancient rock art sites along the Kuniya Walk, and experience the majesty of the sacred Mutitjulu Waterhole. In the late afternoon, enjoy the colour changes of Uluru as the sun sets over the largest monolith in the world while sipping sparkling wine.
Witness the first rays of the sun set Uluru and the Red Centre alight. Continue to the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta (also known as the Olgas). On the way, enjoy panoramic views of the southern side of Kata Tjuta from the dune viewing area before arriving at Walpa Gorge. Spend some time exploring the gorge and the conglomerate rock formations of the region. In the early afternoon, travel to Kings Canyon for the next part of your Short Break experience.
Climb a 100-metre cliff and walk 6kms along the canyon's rim for impressive views of grottos, chasms, cliffs and other natural wonders spread throughout the region. Deep between the sandstone cliffs is the Garden of Eden, a waterhole surrounded by exotic plants. Or, set off on a two-kilometre stroll along the boulder-strewn canyon creek bed that leads to impressive views of the canyon rim. Later, travel through each stunning desert location, with informative commentary provided by your Driver Guide, to Alice Springs, where your Short Break concludes.
