Rise early to watch the first rays of the sun set Uluṟu alight. Here you’ll receive your breakfast. After sunrise accompany your guide to commence your Base Walk of Uluṟu. Walk from Kuniya Piti, an Uluṟu sacred site, and hear the Tjukurpa (Aṉangu – the local Aboriginal people – beliefs and law) story of the Mala Men. Next up is the Mala Walk, an important habitation area for the local Aboriginal people over thousands of years. The Mala Walk includes a visit into Kaṉtju Gorge, where after rainfall water can cascade over the side of Uluṟu and plunge some 90 metres. After a short rest break, continue on along the Lungkata Walk where your guide will tell you the Tjukurpa story of the cheeky Blue Tongue Lizard! Next stop is the Mutiṯjulu Waterhole. The waterhole was once an important water source for Aṉangu. Complete your base walk back at Kuniya Piti where you will board your coach into town and receive a certificate of your achievement!
This evening take in a spectacular Uluṟu sunset, where you’ll be served wine and nibbles while you begin to absorb the beauty of your surroundings. As the sun sets over the western horizon you’ll be witness to the majestic presence and many shades of colour for which Uluṟu is most famous.
