    What to Expect
    After hotel pickup in Alice Springs in the early morning, travel by air-conditioned coach along Highway 87, enjoying views of the West MacDonnell Ranges, Mt Ebenezer, Mt Conner and the stunning Red Centre landscape along the way.

    Your guide breaks up the long drive with several stops. After about one hour, pull into Stuarts Well, a typical Outback roadhouse where you have a light breakfast. Then continue towards Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and take a break morning tea at the Mt Conner lookout point (typically served with lamington, a traditional Aussie cake, and a cool drink or hot billy tea).

    Upon your arrival at Uluru, your guide leads several activities around the massive sandstone rock formation. Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is considered sacred to the Aboriginal people. Hear about Tjukurpa art on the Mala walk; take a guided hike around the entire base of Uluru; see Aboriginal rock art on the way to the Mutitjulu Waterhole; and hear about the traditions of the Anangu people. Learn more about Aboriginal culture and art at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre.

    Next, drive about 45 minutes to reach the other large rock formation in the national park, Kata Tjuta (aka the Olgas). Discover the site with your guide, taking in the numerous dome-shaped rock formations that contain beautiful trails and valleys, the Walpa Gorge and secluded watering holes.

    Before sundown, head the Uluru sunset viewing area to enjoy a breathtaking sunset over UIuru. Sip complimentary sparkling wine or juice as the natural light show unfolds, then feast on a barbecue dinner that includes meats, salad and bread.

    When dinner ends, make the 6.5-hour drive back to Alice Springs where your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

    Our guides Lafe and Eddie obviously very knowledgable and passionate. We had the perfect amount of stops to break up the long day so it went surprisingly fast. Great experience and would definitely recommend.

    Leif and Tony were knowledgeable and fun, the food is good, and of course the rock is fantastic. The only downsides were all the flies that will go under your sunglasses to try to get in your eyes, so make sure you get a fly net! Also it's very hot even in spring, and so many

    So what a great experience, like most organised trips that incorporate several sights and stops it was time-restricted but then if you want to spend more time in different places I'd suggest renting a car - but you'll miss out on the humour and wealth of information/stories that

    On the Viator/Trip Advisor ticket the tour operator showed as Alice Wanderer & Grayline but if you go to their website and try to book, it takes you to EmuRun and that was the name on the bus actually used. The advantage of booking on Viator/Trip Advisor was the 24hr
