Your Uluru Hop On Hop Off pass starts today.  This pass has been providing first-class, personalised service to visitors from across the world for over 20 years.

Your pickup start from your hotel and decide how and when you want to visit the sites.

Visit at sunrise or sunset for a spectacular sight as Uluru transforms from ochre to burnished orange and intense red.

Visit one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, Uluru. Not only is it a spectacular natural formation, Uluru is a deeply spiritual place. You can feel a powerful presence the moment you set eyes on it.

At 348 metres high, Uluru is one of the world’s largest monoliths, towering over the surrounding landscape and some 550 million years old.

Made of sandstone, Uluru is often referred to as the heart of the ‘Red Centre’ and is one of Australia’s most recognisable landmarks. Breathe in, see the colours change before your eyes, hear the stories of time and be amazed as Uluru captures your heart.

For the local Aboriginal people, the Anangu, World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park holds a special cultural significance where earth and memories exist as one.

Feel the connection to the land as this iconic rock formation hides ancient wisdom and diverse plant and animal life. Discover an awe-inspiring landscape where creation stories are whispered on the winds.

DAY 3: Kata Tjuta

Hike around the soaring rock domes of Kata Tjuta / The Olgas at sunset and watch them glow and change colour with the surrounding desert landscape.

Choose from a number of walking trails that range from easy strolls to longer, more difficult tracks. At the end of the short walk to the Kata Tjuta dune viewing area you can sit and take in the magnificent panoramic view of the domes.

The Walpa Gorge Walk is a rocky track that rises gently and passes rare plants and leads to a grove of spearwood. The longest of all trails at Kata Tjuta is the Valley of the Winds Walk – a moderately difficult track with breathtaking views. It is very steep in places, but the 7.4km circuit is worth the effort – it takes you between the domes, through creek beds and away from the crowds.

Meaning ‘many heads’, Kata Tjuta is sacred to the local Aboriginal Anangu people, who have inhabited the area for more than 22,000 years. It forms an important focus of their spiritual life. As a visitor you can join a cultural tour to learn some of the region’s sacred history and Dreamtime stories.

Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park is Aboriginal land and jointly managed by its Anangu traditional owners and Parks Australia. The park is recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Area for both its natural and cultural values.
