About This Trip

To stand in front of Uluru and witness its grounded, silent beauty is a memory to treasure. To walk amongst the gigantic domes of Kata Tjuta, running your hand along the sacred red rock completely transports you. This is not just a short break to the Red Centre of Australia, but a journey to a timeless destination of pure beauty. 

 

Everyone knows what Uluru and Kata Tjuta look like, but to stand in their presence is an entirely unique experience. Our immersive escape to the heart of Australia gives you the opportunity to explore these two sacred sites with local guides who are skilled at storytelling, giving you the history of the place and giving you the space you need to truly appreciate these natural wonders. 

 

Your accommodation through the trip is the remarkable Desert Gardens Hotel. Set around stunning gardens, you can spend your time relaxing on your balcony, taking a dip in one of the shaded pools, or explore indigenous culture with the many cultural classes on offer.

highlights

Uluru and Kata Tjuta are national treasures. So important, not only to the indigenous Anangu people but as iconic images of Australia that are beamed worldwide. When we created this trip, we wanted to make sure that you could jet into the red centre of Australia for a short break that allowed you to explore every inch of this remarkable part of the world. 

 

To maximise your time here, we have arranged guided visits to both Uluru and Kata Tjuta. You will explore Uluru with an expert guide, then as the sun sets, watch the colours change over the incredible sacred site with a glass of bubbly in hand. For Kata Tjuta, we have arranged the opposite, a stunning sunrise tour with a luxurious picnic breakfast to walk amongst this incredible site at its finest, with far fewer crowds. 

 

Add to this, tickets to the unbelievably beautiful art installation, Field of Light and accommodation in a stunning desert garden location and you have a short break that you will never forget.


location

On this short break, you will jet into Ayres Rock, where we will collect you and transfer you to your desert oasis, where you will spend the next three nights. With accommodation as close to Uluru as it is possible to be, you can spend time relaxing and indulging in the many cultural tours at your hotel, before we take you out to Uluru and Kata Tjuta themselves. At the end of your time here, we will transfer you back to Ayres Rock to catch your onward flight.
