Fly above beautiful Uluru (Ayers Rock) on this helicopter tour from Ayers Rock Resort. Spot the massive sandstone monolith in the heart of the Northern Territory’s "Red Centre" and The Olgas rock domes in the distance. Your pilot picks you up from your hotel and gives onboard commentary while you fly. Upgrade for a 30-minute flight that takes you directly over The Olgas.
What to Expect
Your Uluru helicopter flight with a Kata Tjuta upgrade begins with a pickup from your hotel within the Ayers Rock Resort.

Depart from Ayers Rock Resort, set off skyward, and fly over iconic Uluru, or Ayers Rock. Don the headsets provided to hear the pilot clearly, and listen to the onboard commentary. Glide over the UNESCO-listed sandstone monolith

Take advantage of the helicopter’s specially designed windows by taking photos of the Northern Territory from the sky.

If you choose the Kata Tjuta upgrade, fly further across the Northern Territory desert over the World Heritage Kata Tjuta National Park to The Olgas. See the 36 dome-like rock formations making up Mount Olga. With this upgrade, your helicopter ride is 30-minutes long rather than 15.

Relax on the journey back to the resort and land back on the ground, where you can decide what to do next during your stay in the Northern Territory.

Who wouldn't do a chopper flight??

We had flown over Kings Canyon with PHS a couple of days previously, so knew their service was great. The views from Mt Conner to the East, the Rock and westwards to Kata Tjuta were unparalleled for clarity and photos. A tad expensive, but OH!...More

I don believe so, we were certainly not told if there was. When we were picked up, the pilot assessed us and then seated us a certain way so that the weight was evenly distributed. Hope this helps
