Feel the stirring of something bigger than you as you arrive in Ayers Rock Resort (flights to arrive prior to 2.00pm), your launchpad to Australia's fiery heart in the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. This afternoon, travelling to Uluru as the day fades, the outback sun bids a fiery farewell. This is the perfect backdrop for a Welcome Reception with sparkling sundowners, while overlooking Uluru.

Day 2 Uluru

Observe the shifting lights of the impressive Field of Light art instillation as the desert awakens and the sunrise lights up across Uluru. Explore and learn about the spiritual connection the local Anangu caretakers have with the land. Skirt the red walls of Uluru, hear ancient tales and see rock art, then visit Mutitjulu Waterhole. Relax by the resort pool or take to the skies to see Uluru from above before an afternoon exploring Kata Tjuta for a walk through Walpa Gorge. The evening is at leisure, so why not take the opportunity to enjoy the resort restaurants.
