How to Spend 2 Days at Uluru

How to Spend 2 Days at Uluru

A 2-day trip to Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, allows you time to see the famed rock throughout the day—it appears to change color depending on the lighting and time of day. You also have time to visit Kata Tjuta (within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park) and venture as far as Mount Connell. Here’s how to spend two days at Uluru.

Day 1: Uluru/Ayers Rock

**Morning:**Get an early start to see the sunrise over Uluru. Take a guided walk around the base—a flat distance of around 7.5 miles (12 kilometers)—ride a camel on a guided tour, or rent a bicycle and pedal around at your own pace. 

**Afternoon:**To get a different perspective on the rock and Kata Tjuta, take a scenic helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft flight over the area. Adventure-seekers also have the option of free-falling from a height of 12,000 feet (3,657 meters) on a tandem skydiving flight. 

**Night:**Head for the designated sunset-viewing area to watch the changing colors of the desert as the sun sinks over Uluru. Guided tours typically include a glass of wine or beer with which to toast the sunset, and then continue with an Aussie-style barbecue dinner under the starry night sky.

Day 2: Kata Tjuta and Mt. Conner

**Morning:**It’s another early start on day two to see the sunrise over the 36 large red rock domes of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. Tours that start with a sunrise over the desert landscape typically continue with an outback picnic breakfast and a walking tour of Walpa Gorge. 

**Afternoon:**Enjoy the quintessential Aussie outback experience and soak up the ambience of the Red Centre on a guided tour by 4WD vehicle to Mt. Conner, located on the privately owned cattle station of Curtin Springs. Look out for red kangaroos, wallabies, and other wildlife as you travel across the desert landscape.

**Night:**Some Mt. Conner tours include a glass of wine to toast the sunset, as well as a 3-course dinner at Curtin Springs Station before returning you to your accommodation. If not, opt to spend your evening at one of the fine dining hotel restaurants within the Ayers Rock Resort.
