Day 1: Uluru & Kata Tjuta Tour

Our professional tour guides show you the real outback on this one day tour. EARLY MORNING Starting your tour in Alice Springs? We will collect you from outside your Alice Springs accommodation and head to the first stop of our day tour at Erldunda (home of the Emu) LATE MORNING If you’re starting your tour from Ayers Rock Resort (lunch not included), we collect you from your Ayers Rock Resort accommodation. EARLY AFTERNOON Kata Tjuta Travel to Kata Tjuta (Olgas) for the first walk of the day into the beautiful Walpa Gorge. Take in the stunning domes of Kata-Tjuta, see the wildflowers (depending on the season) and marvel at the views of the open plains on the return walk. Aboriginal Cultural Centre Your tour then visits the Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Here, you will have time to learn about the local Pitjantjatjara people and buy souvenirs. Built from 90,000 mud bricks, the Cultural Centre was created with the help of the local Anangu people. The sacred site it is built on has special meaning to its traditional owners.

MID-LATE AFTERNOON Uluru – Mala Walk Head to the base of the majestic Uluru (Ayers Rock). From here, your tour guide will take you on a guided Mala Walk. Please note; tourists are no longer permitted to climb Uluru due to its cultural significance. The Mala Walk follows the north-west side of Uluru, where you will see many fascinating examples of Anangu rock art. Along the way, your guide will tell ancient stories of the Anangu People. Uluru – Mutitjulu Waterhole Travel by coach to the back section of Uluru and start a guided walk to the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Your guide will take you along a short track to the waterhole – home of an ancestral water snake called Wanampi. You’ll hear stories of local traditions and learn how the Anangu people traditionally used the waterhole for hunting. The caves containing rock art were used in the past by the Anangu people, whose ancestors are still alive today. SUNSET The Sunset BBQ This is an unforgettable Australian experience and something everyone should visit Uluru for at least once in their lives. Take in a breathtaking Uluru sunset with a glass of bubbly (or BYO beer) and a delicious Aussie BBQ dinner. AFTER SUNSET After sunset and the dinner, we head to the Ayers Rock Resort to drop off those finishing their tour at Ayers Rock Resort Accommodation. We then make the return journey to Alice Springs and drop off those passengers finishing their tour at Alice Springs Accommodation.

This was said to be the longest one day trip according to our driver Dave, covering some 1140 km. We had an early start at 6.29am and didn't return until 1am the following morning. It was a great day with fantastic sights and a great subset barbecue. Yad, our guide in the park, was very informative and had great aboriginal creation stories and showing us the evidence. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Fantastic excursion from Alice Springs to Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Although it's a long day, which we knew would be the case, our excellent tour guides David and Adner (apologies if I have this name wrong) were both incredibly well informed and kept us entertained throughout. The itinerary was well thought out and professionally executed, with good communication so that misunderstandings were avoided. We were particularly impressed with the care and concern shown by David to ensure everyone was returned to their accommodation safely. Thanks for a memorable day.

Fantastic day. Our guides/drivers David and Yad were wonderful, sharing excellent information and very respectfully telling relevant stories of the indigenous culture. I felt that they were both truly imbibed with the indigenous spirit. The bus, however, was problematic with the auto door not sealing properly and the driver having to constantly pull up to open and close the door to stop a very loud squealing. It was happening so often on the long journey home that, when the driver said we would have to wait for an alternative bus to come out to us, we all agreed to continue on and put up with the terrible squealing which would have been distressing for the poor driver but he selflessly continued on for his passengers' sakes so that we would not be out all night.

I don't think there was anything that could have been improved by Emu Run, they did a great job. If I was to do the trip again, it would be a must to stay at Uluru for at least a night.
