Uluru and the Field of Light

Day 1 (L,D) HOME, AYERS ROCK RESORT
Our Red Centre adventure begins as we fly into Ayers Rock Airport and transfer to our home for four nights, the 5 Star Sails in the Desert Hotel. Some time to unpack and explore prior to a chance to get to know our fellow travellers over afternoon tea. Those who wish have the opportunity to view the sunset over Uluru prior to dinner.
Day 2 (B,L,D) ULURU, FIELD OF LIGHT
Our morning is spent at the Uluru Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre where we learn of the Anangu people, the traditional owners of the region. Lunch here at the Ininti Café before we circumnavigate Uluru in our coach, making stops to admire the imposing monolith. Those who wish are also able to take an easy stroll right up to the base of the “Rock”. Some time at leisure this afternoon. Following dinner, a real highlight as we visit the Field of Light a breathtaking installation of over 50,000 frosted glass spheres that are illuminated each evening. An amazing sight!
Day 3 (B,L,D) KATA TJUTA (THE OLGAS), SOUNDS OF SILENCE
Kata Tjuta, also known as The Olgas consists of 36 dome shaped rock formations spread over an area of over 20 kilometres. The second major landmark of the park, these domes reach up to 500 metres in height and have such a strong cultural significance for the local people that many of the legends surrounding the site have been kept secret. We view the area from two designated viewing sites (some easy paced walking required). Following a later lunch feel free to spend the afternoon at your leisure. Tonight we dine under the stars at the award winning Sounds of Silence Dinner. A memorable evening.
Day 4 (B,L,D) AYERS ROCK RESORT
Early risers may wish to view the sunrise over Uluru today before breakfast. This morning we join a local Anangu artist who guides us through the basics of dot artwork as we create our own personal holiday keepsakes. Following lunch the afternoon is yours to relax or enjoy a local activity. Those who wish are welcome to join us for afternoon tea at the Walpa Lobby Bar. Our farewell dinner is held at the wonderful Ilkari Restaurant.
Day 5 (B) AYERS ROCK RESORT, HOME
Following a leisurely breakfast this morning we return to Ayers Rock Airport. We depart the magical Red Centre with wonderful memories of our visit to this ruggedly beautiful and significantly spiritual part of Australia.
