Full Uluru Base Walk at Sunrise Including breakfast

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Come and join your guide on a trek around the base of Uluru as you explore the most profound and culturally significant monolith in Australia at sunrise.
  • Experience the sunrise over Uluru with all the tour details taken care of
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off means you're not driving yourself in the predawn darkness
  • Supplied outback picnic breakfast to refuel mid-hike
  • Listen to detailed Anangu creation stories and facts about the monolith
What to Expect
Roll out of bed in the darkness and be thankful you're not in charge of navigation as you ride from the door of your accommodations to the base of Uluru.  At the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, begin your predawn walk along the 7.5-mile (12-kilometer) trail just as the sun starts to peek over the horizon. Listen to Tjukurpa (creation time stories) and learn of the Mala people along the Mala Walk to Kantju Gorge. Hear stories of Liru (poisonous snake) and Kuniya (sand python) on the way into the Mutitjulu Waterhole.  Stop mid-hike to refuel with a hearty picnic breakfast while watching the early morning light play on the huge monolith. Complete the hike and return to your resort for drop-off.

Yes, you would certainly have enough time. You might want to allow enough time for a quick shower on return to the hotel though.
