AUSSIE RED CENTRE 2022
Early this morning, we’ll drive to the Kata Tjuta western dunes viewing area to witness the spectacular sunrise over Kata Tjuta with Uluru in the distance. After our onsite breakfast we’ll visit Kata Tjuta, 36 domes of red-hued sedimentary rock. We’ll walk into Walpa Gorge, along a gentle 2.6 km return track that follows the natural creek allowing you to walk right between two of the tallest domes of Kata Tjuṯa. We’ll visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre for free time to eat lunch (own expense) then travel onto Uluru to complete the Kuniya & Mala Walks & experience the majesty of the sacred Mutitjulu Waterhole, where you’ll hear about the area’s distinct geological & cultural history. You’ll see desert wildlife, hear timeless stories & view spectacular rock art. The presence of water means this area is particularly lush and shady. Our farewell dinner this evening is the Sounds of Silence experience, which has been entered into the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame. It begins with canapes & chilled sparkling wine upon a dune top, overlooking the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. As the sun sets & darkness falls, listen to the sound of a didgeridoo as you are seated for a 3 course bush tucker inspired meal. The resident star talker decodes the southern night sky, locating the Southern Cross, the signs of the zodiac, the Milky Way, as well as planets & galaxies that are visible due to the exceptional clarity of the atmosphere.
