Excursion d'une journée à Ayers Rock au départ d'Alice Springs comprenant Uluru, Kata Tjuta et un barbecue pour le dîner au coucher du soleil
Présentez-vous aux alentours de midi à Yulara où vos guides offrent un déjeuner à emporter pour vous restaurer pendant le trajet en voiture jusqu'au parc national Uluru-Kata Tjuta classé au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO. Puis commencez la première marche de la journée à Walpa Gorge, une distance de 1,5 miles (2,6 km). En chemin, profitez d'une incroyable vue sur les superbes formations rocheuses en forme de dôme de Kata-Tjuta, site sacré de du peuple aborigène.
Après votre marche, visitez le Centre culturel, construit avec l'aide de personnes autochtones locales. Vous en apprendrez plus au travers de panneaux d'affichage et de votre guide sur le peuple aborigène Pitjantjatjara et l'histoire naturelle et culturelle de la région.
Ensuite, rendez-vous aux pieds d'Uluru (Ayers Rock) et votre guide vous conduira sur le Mala Walk, qui suit le côté nord-ouest d'Uluru. Pendant la balade, vous verrez des exemples exceptionnels de l'art aborigène sur roche, vous vous émerveillerez devant des murs de roche verticale époustouflants et vous entendrez les histoires du peuple aborigène.
De retour au car, vous serez conduit autour d'Uluru pour atteindre une courte piste qui mène à Mutitjulu Waterhole. Faites une courte visite guidée à pied au point d'eau, dont la légende dit qu'il abrite la couleuvre d'eau ancestrale nommée Wanampi. Vous en apprendrez plus de votre guide sur les coutumes aborigènes lorsque vous découvrirez la piscine d'eau chatoyante et ses roches rouges environnantes.
Et maintenant comme point fort de la journée, rendez-vous dans la zone d'observation du coucher du soleil d'Uluru pour un barbecue australien. Découvrez les magnifiques couleurs du coucher du soleil à Uluru tout en sirotant un verre de vin pétillant et savourez le savoureux tucker (plat).
Après le coucher de soleil, remontez à bord de votre car pour rentrer à Alice Springs.

We really enjoyed this tour. The driver (in the morning and in the evening - Sorry we did not understand his name, he had long blond hair) was amazing and interesting, everyone gave him a round of applause. He first stopped to let us take pictures of Uluru and a salt lake - views were great ! Another guide took us to Kata Tjuta where we walked a bit into Walpa Gorge. After that we went to Uluru where we saw caves and a water hole and learnt a lot about Aboriginal culture. In the evening we went to the sunset lookup where we had a barbecue dinner and were able to see Uluru changing color at sunset. We were disappointed about two things though, first one being that coach seats had not been allocated upon booking. Some families having been picked up first separated in order to monopolise window seats. As a result, my mother and I could not seat together, so she missed a lot of the commentaries as she does not speak English fluently. Another thing was the limited number of minutes left at each spot. We could not walk too far into Walpa Gorge, a guided walk would have been appreciated. Same thing at Uluru caves, where after the guided walk, the guide left us the option to go see two other caves on our own. We chose to go back to the coach and almost got lost because the guide had moved it to go wait near the optional caves. In general, very good tour with stunning views of the red sand, Uluru, Kata Tjuta and a great driver. Pick-up and drop-off at the hotel were very appreciated. Type of visit : family (adults)
perfectly organised. picked up on time, two drivers tour guides were excellent in terms of service courtesy and helpful attitude. quality and spacing out of food drinks were excellent and of perfect. knowledge of guides was based on facts and science. finally BBQ was the cream. driving was like travelling with Qantas for safety. hands off to you.
It was a full day but well worth it. Plenty of good food supplied and good value for money. Our guide and driver (lath and Gav) were both knowledgeable, helpful and courteous to passengers, I did this trip by myself when younger, but it is much better to do it by day tour because you can relax, and enjoy the day without stress. The weather was perfect.
A really long, but awesome trip. Saw everything you expected, with great commentary by the two guide/drivers. Extra bonus on the return of stopping in the middle of the desert on a moonless night to see an awesome star show.
If you have limited time and what theUluru experience this is the tour for you. Tony and Gavin did a fantastic job of handling all the aspects of the tour and very very informative and interesting about the local culture. Be rested when you take the tour as it really is a full 18 hour day.
Booked through Viator and provided by Emu Run Experience. Long day but worth it for a once in a lifetime experience! The bus was large, very comfortable and had a toilet room on board!. Well run tour with plenty of bathroom stops along the way. Breakfast was about 2 hours after tour start at a small café and was very good variety. Lunch was sandwiches on board the bus and not so great chicken wrap with cucumbers and carrots but not much taste. Our guides were great at keeping us informed and building the excitement to spot Uluru. Also very good at providing history and other site related information. Fair amount of walking on this tour and a lot of it in red sand so recommend not wearing shoes you want to keep clean. Also a bit chilly in early July, especially in the evening at the BBQ. BBQ dinner appeared to be pre-cooked steaks and sausages re-heated on the grill as well as a variety of salads lettuce salad, pasta salad, potato salad, etc.. Drinks were champagne and some orange juice. All in all the crew did a fantastic job given the size of the group and the time constraints of this tour.
Longest day trip ever from 6.00am to 01.00am next morning. The Tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic and they really made it a good experience. The flies at Uluru are a real nuisance, so take a face net although even that is annoying. Overall, glad we went but very tiring.
