Uluru - Kings Canyon (54 km)
Early in the morning, we will see the magnificent sunrise over Uluru. While the morning is fresh, we will enjoy an unguided walk around the base of the rock. Then we will deepen our understandings of the land and the Mala people as we embark on a cultural interpretive walk with an Aboriginal guide and interpreter. This is a truly unique opportunity to share experiences, connect with, and learn about the oldest culture on Earth. Afterwards, we will have the opportunity to see more Aboriginal arts and crafts at the Cultural Center before we travel to our exclusive campsite within Watarrka National Park. (Camping in Watarrka National Park.)
