Overview
On this sunrise tour of Ayers Rock (Uluru), you’ll see the UNESCO-listed site’s vivid-red hue in flattering morning light, before the crowds and the worst heat of the day arrives. You’ll learn about the impressive Olgas (Kata Tjuta) rocks as you hike through the Walpa Gorge. Relax as someone else handles the driving, listen to guide commentary about the history of the area, and enjoy convenient hotel pick-up and drop-off.

We have done several tours with AAT Kings in Sydney, Melbourne, and Urulu. They were all very good. Our family of 4 very much enjoyed the Uluru sunrise and Kata Tjuta half day trip. The coach bus came to pick us up at the hotel and then we headed to Uluru to watch the sun rise.

Combining Uluru and Kata Tjuta was excellent. The sunrise was beautiful and the AAT King's team of Dan and Marie did a fantastic job. So knowledgable, happy and personable. Highly recommended. IMHO Kata Tjuta was fantastic to see and well worth it.

Photos do not do Uluru and Kata Tjuta justice. The experience of seeing these two rocks up close is amazing. They both change colour as the sun hits it's surface and the historical stories are magical to listen too. Be aware that you will be walking in red dirt. Shoes and
