DAY 1

Arrive Ayers Rock (2 Nights)
Feel the stirring of something bigger than you as you arrive in Ayers Rock Resort (flights to arrive prior to 2pm), only 20 km from magical, mystical Uluru and the launchpad to Australia’s spiritual heart in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. This afternoon, you’ll travel to Uluru as the day fades away, the outback sun bidding a fiery farewell. Uluru towers over the Northern Territory’s remote landscape, the perfect backdrop for this evening’s Welcome Reception.
Hotel: Sails in the Desert, Ayers Rock Resort
Meal: Welcome Reception

DAY 2

Uluru Sightseeing
Wake early, taking time to pause and contemplate the mesmerising sunrise over the desert terrain of Kata Tjuta and Uluru, observing the shifting lights and play of colours of the impressive Field of Light art installation as the desert awakens. ‘Dive Into Culture’ and learn about the spiritual connection local Anangu caretakers have with the land. Skirt the red cliffs of Uluru, hear ancient tales and see rock art, then visit Mutitjulu Waterhole, one of Uluru’s natural wonders, where you’ll revel in the stillness of this spiritual place, hoping to spot its resident wallabies, honeyeaters and thorny devils. Later, relax by the resort pool or take to the skies on an Optional Experience to see Uluru from above, a real bird’s eye view of Australia’s most impressive landmark. Take an afternoon walk through Walpa Gorge, delighting in the desert plants, animals and seasonal streams protected within the sheer walls of this ancient ravine – a refuge for the region’s beloved wallabies.
Meal: Breakfast

Ayers Rock – Kings Canyon
Leaving Uluru behind, we’ll wander across desert landscapes arriving at Kings Creek Station, a vast farming property, just in time for lunch. ‘Dive Into Culture’ visiting the small Aboriginal community of Wanmarra and learn about the Luritja and Pertame people’s spiritual connection to the land. Discover bush tucker (Aboriginal bush food) and natural bush medicine used for spiritual and physical healing. The flickering glow of this evening’s fire, dancing under the canopy of a starry Southern Hemisphere sky, is the perfect accompaniment to your Regional ‘Under a Desert Moon’ Meal. This degustation menu with matching wines is the perfect end to the day. Sit back and listen to the sounds of the outback come alive at night in the company of new friends.
