3 Day Uluru Adventure

Our young guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and capable as well as fun! He prioritized safety of the group which was so important in the heat we experienced during our tour. He was able to give us options to suit various ability levels and even managed to let us swim in a pool in between hikes one day! Your itinerary said there would be a tour of a camel farm, which there was not. I think your itinerary should state that the guides may have to change or modify activities due to weather conditions. We did get to the 3 main parks/landmarks and do the main hikes that were listed, which is what I went for. The campsites were "rustic," meaning not high end, but it was camping and was a true Outback experience. Loved it!

Uluru Tours & Vacations

Two women stand in front of Uluru, having their picture taken during a bright red sunset

From traditional bush medicine to birthing caves, sacred waterholes to rock art, discover why Uluru and Kata Tjuta are the spiritual heart of Australia.

Standing 348 meters tall in the middle of an otherwise flat desert, Uluru is the coolest monolith you’ll probably ever see. But here’s the thing: Uluru’s so much more than a monolith—it’s a living landscape that holds 60,000 years of Anangu history, stories and culture. Join us on a Red Centre adventure to hike through 300-million-year-old canyons and gorges, listen and learn from  First Nations  guides, and watch these sacred sites come to life. If the fluorescent glow of Uluru at sunset doesn’t take your breath away, the glittering night sky certainly will.

Tours to Uluru

Let's create an exclusive trip for your group.

Tours from Uluru

Uluru has become a symbol of the vast and rugged  Aussie Outback . But it's also a place of deep spiritual importance to the traditional custodians,  the Aṉangu people , who've been connected to these lands for tens of thousands of years. Watch the fascinating formations of  Uluru and Kata Tjuta  come alive as you listen to ancient stories passed down through the generations, and marvel at the breathtaking sight of an Uluru sunset. Continue your adventure through the Red Centre to discover other natural wonders including  Kings Canyon  and the stunning Ormiston Gorge in Tjoritja/West MacDonnell National Park.

Alice Springs tours

Uluru travel faqs, do i need a covid-19 vaccine to join an intrepid trip.

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards

From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travelers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises).

However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travelers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

Who are the traditional owners of Uluru?

The Anangu (pronounced  arn-ung-oo ) people are the traditional owners of  Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park  and other regions of the Central Western desert.

They've been custodians of the land for over 60,000 years and are one of the world's oldest living cultures.

For the Anangu people, Uluru and Kata Tjuta are places of deep spiritual connection; they are physical evidence of Tjukurpa (the creation period) and the ancestral spirits who reside in the land.

How do I get to Uluru?

All of our Uluru trips start in Yulara (a resort town on the outskirts of  Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park ) or Alice Springs. The quickest way to get to Uluru is to fly to Yulara. You can fly direct from a few Australian cities including Melbourne, Sydney and Cairns with Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin Australia.

You can fly direct to Alice Springs from most major Australian cities including Brisbane, Darwin and Adelaide (flights are generally more frequent from Alice than Yulara). From here, it's a 288 miles (5.5 hours) drive to Uluru.

If your tour finishes in Yulara, we can drop you off in Alice Springs (at no additional cost), with an arrival back in town at around 6:30 pm.

Is climbing Uluru banned?

Yes, climbing Uluru was banned permanently on 26 October 2019 to respect the traditional owners and the  spiritual significance  of the site. The Anangu people have been holding spiritual and cultural ceremonies at Uluru for tens of thousands of years, and climbing is not generally allowed under Tjukurpa (Anangu law and culture). We think the views are better from down below, anyway.

Can I drink tap water in the Red Centre?

Yes, drinking tap water is safe in Alice Springs, Yulara and throughout the Red Centre. Ensure you bring a 1-2 liter reusable water bottle to refill at the water stations dotted around Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Staying hydrated is important as the Outback sun is intense and you'll be doing a fair bit of walking during the day.

Are there ATMs in the Red Centre?

You can withdraw cash at a number of ATMs in Alice Springs. There's also an ATM in the Town Square at Ayers Rock Resort in Yulara. Most of the highway roadhouses will have an ATM or the option to get cashback.

What should I pack for Uluru?

Layering is key in the Outback. The days are warm or hot all year so t-shirts and shorts are fine, however the temperature can drop at night so you'll need long pants and a warm sweater and/or jacket for sunrise and sunset. You’ll also need a comfy pair of walking shoes, a wide-brimmed sun hat, a day pack, sunscreen, lip balm and a reusable water bottle.

When's the best time to visit Uluru?

Uluru is awe-inspiring come rain or shine, but the best time to visit is generally between May and September when the days are dry and warm (but not scorching). Uluru sits in a semi-arid desert climate zone, so summer is sweltering with occasional storms (the amount of rainfall varies from year to year), while winter is warm and dry during the day with cold nighttime temps that often plummet below zero.

Is Uluru also called Ayers Rock?

You may have heard Australia's most famous landmark also being called Ayers Rock. However, the traditional custodians of Uluru, the Anangu people, have always called it Uluru. The first non-Aboriginal person to see Uluru was explorer William Gosse in 1873. He named it Ayers Rock in honor of his superior Sir Henry Ayers, the Chief Secretary of South Australia.

The rock was officially renamed Ayers Rock / Uluru in 1993, but it was renamed again in 2002 to Uluru / Ayers Rock to show respect for the Anangu people and acknowledge their custodianship of the land. We use the traditional name for this reason, and you'll also see the traditional name used throughout the national park.

The word 'Uluru' comes from the Pitjantjatjara language and has no direct English translation.

How will we travel around the Red Centre?

The Red Centre covers a huge, very remote area of Central Australia. We'll spend many hours driving from A to B in an air-conditioned vehicle. Make sure you bring ample snacks and maybe a few podcasts to listen to – or use it as an opportunity to get to know your fellow travelers. With a comfortable, air-conditioned bus, sit back and enjoy the unique desert landscapes that you'd miss in any other form of travel.

What's the accommodation like?

It depends on the trip style you choose. Our Basix and Original trips feature simple (but comfy) camping accommodation in permanent or semi-permanent tents with stretcher beds and shared facilities, or a mixture of camping and budget hotels.

If you choose a Comfort or Premium trip, you'll stay in 3-to-4-star hotels and resorts with private amenities.

Can I use my cell phone at Uluru?

Cell phone and data signal within Ayers Rock Resort and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is pretty good (Ayers Rock Resort also offers free Wi-Fi). You can usually pick up a few bars at the roadhouses, too, although some network providers tend to be better than others.

Expect the signal to be patchy or completely cut off when you're on the road or exploring more remote places like Kings Canyon or Tjoritja/West MacDonnell National Park. But hey, with views like these, we don't think you'll mind switching off for a few days.

Do I need to bring cash?

You can use a credit or debit card for purchases in most roadhouses, shops and restaurants in the Red Centre. However, it's always handy to have cash for smaller purchases.

You might also want to withdraw money if you're interested in buying artwork from local First Nations artists. Artists often sell beautiful, hand-painted tapestries in the gardens near Town Square in Ayers Rock Resort, and at the sunset viewing area. It's a great way to take a little piece of Uluru home with you.

What are some interesting facts about Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park?

  • The formations are approximately 500 million years old
  • The rock (Uluru) you see is only the tip of the, er, monolith. The rock mass extends up to 6 kilometers underground
  • Uluru is 348 meters tall (for reference, that's taller than the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Chrysler Building in New York or the Eureka Tower in Melbourne)
  • The circumference of Uluru is 9.4 km and it takes around 3 to 4 hours to walk depending on your fitness level
  • The traditional owners of Uluru and Kata Tjuta are the Anangu people
  • Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is home to over 400 plant species and 21 species of mammals
  • The rocks get their orangey-red color from the oxidized iron minerals

Are there things I can't do at Uluru?

Uluru is often referred to as the spiritual heart of Australia, not only because of its middle-of-the-country location but also for its great significance to Australia’s First Nations people (and more specifically to the Anangu, the traditional owners of Uluru). And for this reason, there are restrictions on what you can and can't do at Uluru. These restrictions include taking photos at sacred sites, swimming in waterholes around the base, and not calling Uluru by its colonized name, Ayers Rock.

Are Intrepid trips accessible for travelers with disabilities?

We are committed to making travel widely  accessible , regardless of ability or disability. We do our best to help you see the world, regardless of physical or mental limitations. 

We are always happy to talk to travelers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them toward the most suitable itinerary for their needs and, where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.

Ulu r u-Kata Tju t a National Park, and Kings Canyon (Watarrka) National Park, are home to many interesting animals. These animal residents rarely pose any threat to humans, but there are a couple you need to take care around.

Southern Marsupial Mole

This unusual creature lives a highly secretive life underground.

Weighing between 40 and 70 grams, southern marsupial moles are rarely seen but sometimes surface after periods of rain. They live in dunes and other sandy areas, ‘swimming’ through the sand and backfilling their tunnels behind them.

Their diet consists of ants, beetles and larvae. The female mole has a backwards-facing pouch like the koala and wombat.

Known as itjaritjari to A n angu, the marsupial mole is an important ancestral creature. Minyma Itjaritjari is an ancestral being that lived in a cave in the side of Ulu r u, in the same valley as the  Mala people . She was friendly with the Mala women and would often come out of her cave to watch the children play.

King Brown Snake

The  king brown snake , or liru, is a large venomous snake. Like most snakes, it tends to avoid human contact and will only bite if disturbed.

If you see a snake in the park, keep your distance.

Native Australian Dingo

The  dingo  is a native canine closely related to the common dog. They usually avoid humans but may also be curious and watch people from a distance.

Dingos are wild animals with sharp teeth, so never try to touch or feed them.

Scavengers, leaving rubbish, leaving food in bags outside etc ? Dingos are scavengers – do not leave anything lying around…

Native Frog Species

Ulu r u-Kata Tju t a is home to four species of frog that have adapted to desert life.

Known as water-holding frogs (Cyclorana platycephala), these hardy amphibians bury themselves deep in the sand where the temperature is constant. They have tiny spade-like structures under their feet to help them dig.

When the rain is heavy enough to soak down to where they have burrowed, the frogs know that the waterholes and creeks are full. That’s when they emerge to breed, often in huge numbers.

After breeding they bloat themselves full of water before burying themselves in the sand again.

Frogs are opportunistic feeders and will eat whatever is available, including ants, termites, beetles, flies, spiders, grasshoppers and moths.

In extremely dry times, A n angu would dig up these frogs and squeeze the water out of them for a drink.

uluru wildlife tour

Departing from either Alice Springs or Yulara (Uluru Airport) we head towards Uluru (Ayers Rock) stopping off at Mt Connor (false Uluru) lookout for a view of this mighty red mountain and Curtin Springs for a toilet stop before arriving at our campground for lunch. After lunch, those arriving via Ayers Rock Airport will join the group before we head to the Red Centre’s Aboriginal interpretive cultural centre. We have a chance to learn about the cultural, ecological, historical and geological significance of this very special national park. With the anticipation and excitement growing we make a short drive towards the base of Uluru as we begin to comprehend the sheer size and magnificence of the giant monolith, getting up close and personal to explore further. Walking to Mutitjulu waterhole we discover sacred rock art sites in family caves and hear the creation stories of Kuniya and Liru as we continue our base walk towards Kuniya Piti. From here we drive around sacred sites towards Kantju Gorge where we envisage the highest waterfall in Central Australia, (truly a spectacle to behold, even more so when raining) an elders cave and the world’s oldest pantry. After exploring the world’s most impressive rock up close and personal, we retreat for panoramic views to witness one of the most incredible sunsets on the planet, all whilst having dinner cooked for you, to feed those hungry eyes and allow you to get to know your fellow travellers.

Meals: *Lunch, Dinner (*not included for guests being collected in Ayers Rock) Accom: Ayers Rock Coach Campground – Permanent Tents or Bush Swags (communal bathroom facilities) Driving Distance: 350km Hike Distance: 2-3 km / 2-3 hours

uluru wildlife tour

We wake early for a light breakfast and head off for a spectacular sunrise in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. You thought Uluru was special and just when you think it couldn’t get any more majestic we approach the stunning silhouette of Kata Tjuta. Here we set off on a hike through the Valley of the Winds or Walpa Gorge marvelling at the mighty conglomerate rock formations. After exploring Kata Tjuta we make our way towards Kings Canyon region just in time to experience a glorious outback sunset followed by a hearty meal around the campfire.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Accom: Kings Creek Station – Permanent Tents or Bush Swags (communal campground facilities) Driving Distance: 406 km (4.5 Hours) Hike Distance: 2-6 km / 2-4 hours (*weather dependent)

We head off early to explore the mighty Kings Canyon (Watarrka) venturing into the ancient landscape and sacred grounds of the Ulpanyali and Lilla people. Arriving at the jewel in the crown at the centre of Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) we find ourselves surrounded by towering 100-metre cliff faces, views of sandstone chasms and jaw-dropping backdrops that will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. Grab your water, hat and sturdy shoes as we set off on foot to explore (the most seasonally applicable part of) the canyon in more detail. Rest up in the bus as we head back up north, passing through Alice Springs and heading out towards the West MacDonnell Ranges for an evening of stargazing at our bush camp.

Known traditionally as Angkerle Atwatye, meaning “Gap of Water”, Standley Chasm is a 3-metre-wide, 80-metre-high gorge amongst the West MacDonnell Ranges. At dawn, we hope to spot the native wildlife as we enjoy breakfast and look forward to the day ahead. Tracking west you are welcome to enjoy a dip in Ellery Creek Bighole, known traditionally as Udepata, surrounded by tall red cliffs and sandy Ellery Creek. Onwards to where massive geological forces created the towering red walls of Ormiston Gorge. Spend time here admiring nature and its finest before we begin our leisurely journey back towards Alice Springs, with our final stop at another amazing feature of the Tjoritja West MacDonnell region, Simpsons Gap, where several dreaming trails and stories cross. Featuring a permanent waterhole this is also a great place to spot resident wildlife. Now we’ve had our fix of the best of central Australia’s natural icons, we deliver you back to Alice Springs to your chosen accommodation and evening plans as you reminisce your four days of exploration and new friends made.

We arrive at the highest waterfall in Central Australia, a true spectacle to behold (especially when raining).

Make sure you bring your hat, water and some good hiking shoes as we venture out on foot surrounded by steep towering cliff faces (over 100 metres high) to explore the canyon in more detail and take in the spectacular views of the unique sandstone chasms. After a well deserved rest, our tour heads up north, passing back through Alice Springs and continuing on towards the West MacDonnell Ranges for a majestic evening of stargazing at our remote, outback camp site.

On our fourth day together we head straight to Standley Chasm, traditionally known as ‘Angkerle Atwatye’ meaning ‘Gap of Water,’ a 3-metre-wide, 80-metre-high gorge within the West MacDonnell Ranges. On the lookout for native wildlife, we take time to explore the rugged natural beauty of this area before tracking west towards Ellery Creek Bighole, traditionally known as ‘Udepata’, where we cool off and take a dip surrounded by the steep red cliffs and sandy banks of Ellery Creek. We continue our journey onwards to Ormiston Gorge where we spend time admiring the incredible geological forces of nature that created these massive towering red walls. Our next and final stop is another breathtaking feature in the Tjoritja West MacDonnells region, Simpsons Gap. This permanent waterhole is a great place to look out for native wildlife, including the very shy black-footed-rock-wallaby and is a sacred space where several indigenous dreamtime trails and stories cross.

Living among the plants and geological formations is a thriving community of birds, mammals, reptiles and more.

Many of these animals have developed unique ways of surviving in the harsh environment of Central Australia. A lot of them are also important creation ancestors and appear in the Tjukurpa stories .
