Along the way stop over at Kings Creek Station a working cattle/camel station with facilities and the opportunity to experience the outback either by quad (4 wheel motorbike), helicopter or camel. You might even try one of their famous Kings Creek camel burgers for lunch.

In the afternoon check into your your hotel at Uluru where you can then take the well defined drive to the sunset viewing area. Take some nibbles and wine with you as you watch the sun sink over the western horizon and bring out the many shades of colour for which Uluru is famous.

Day 5: Exploring Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park:

A magnificent day exploring the Kata-Tjuta National Park. Spend the morning driving or walking around the base of the rock exploring the many aspects of this amazing monolith. A trip to Uluru is about experiencing and understanding its cultural & spiritual significance. Self Discover or take one of the guided tours that inform about the local flora and fauna, bush foods and the Aboriginal Dreamtime stories.

In the afternoon travel to the mystical 36 domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Located 50km away on a sealed road some people consider Kata Tjuta to be even more spectacular than Uluru. Depending on your interests, spend some time exploring the gorges and the unusual conglomerate rock formations, through one (or both) of the two dedicated walks. Sunsets at Kata Tjuta are spectacular and rival those at Uluru and are less crowded. Please note the complete Valley of the Winds walk (7.4km / 3.5 hr return) walk is sometimes steep, rocky and difficult. (Note: Options exist to cut down the length and duration of the walk depending on your interests & fitness).
