Your helicopter lifts off and circles Uluru, with views of the waterhole Mutitjulu, Ayers Rock Resort, the surrounding desert and the stunning scenery of the Red Centre. Total duration is approximately 1 hour.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta Helicopter Tour (30-minute flight)

The 30-minute flight includes the views seen in the shorter tour and much more.

Mt Olga is the tallest example of more than 36 massive, dome-shaped rocks that form this natural wonder, which includes otherworldly formations with striated coloring. Both Uluru and Kata Tjuta are sacred to the Anangu people. Total duration is approximately 1.5 hours.

Wonderful experience, flying around Uluru and Kata Tjuta! You really get a view by helicopter that you cant get any other way. Carmen, our pilot, was outstanding! She provided detailed commentary and was very thorough in her flight around both sacred sites. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

We did the sunset flight so the red colours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta contrasted nicely against the desert floor which was remarkably green due to recent rains. The pilots were highly professional and provided just the right amount of commentary. Great job Nico.

This was one of our best experiences in Australia. To view and photograph these sacred aboriginal sights from a helicopter was a once in a lifetime event. Our pilot was friendly and knowledgeable. The highlight of the tour was that a storm cloud was hovering over Kata Tjuta and pouring rain down on it as we approached which is something rare in this desert area of the outback. Our pilot was so excited he even got out his camera and was taking pictures of it. He said he had been doing this tour for 5 years and had never seen rain coming down on KataTjuta. It was truly amazing to see!

Can't really rate the tour as the Helicopter flight was cancelled due to the lightning storm. BUT what I have to mention. They REFUND ALL MONEY we paid in advance and tried hard to reschedule the flight.

Big rock in the middle of nowhere. Helicopter over it and drive out to it for a close up look. Flies can be bad and it will be hot. Don't need to spend more than one night, two at the most. Sails in the Desert best hotel but expensive.

I purchased this tour for my husbands 40th birthday present. He was completely squashed in the back with two other big blokes, he didn't enjoy at all. I have since written to the company and they haven't even responded. Wish we had spent our money elsewhere, very disappointing

This was an amazing experience. It showed us the beauty of the area but also the relationship between the 2 sites. We were able to see where the old road had been and understood why that had been changed. Highly recommended.
