**Day 1: Alice Springs to Uluru / Ayers Rock** Departing from either Alice Springs or Yulara (Uluru Airport) we head towards Ayers Rock stopping off at Mt Connor (false Uluru) lookout for a view of this mighty red mountain and Curtin Springs for a toilet stop before arriving at our campground for lunch. After lunch, those arriving via Ayers Rock Airport will join the group before we head to the Red Centre's Aboriginal interpretive cultural centre. We have a chance to learn about the cultural, ecological, historical, and geological significance of this very special national park. With the anticipation and excitement growing we make a short drive towards the base of Uluru as we begin to comprehend the sheer size and magnificence of the giant monolith, getting up close and personal to explore further. Walking to Mutitjulu waterhole we discover sacred rock art sites in family caves and hear the creation stories of Kuniya and Liru as we continue our base walk towards Kuniya Piti. From here we drive around sacred sites towards Kantju Gorge where we envisage the highest waterfall in Central Australia, (truly a spectacle to behold, even more so when it rains) an elders' cave, and the world's oldest pantry. After exploring the world's most impressive rock up close and personal, we retreat for panoramic views to witness one of the most incredible sunsets on the planet, all whilst having dinner cooked for you, to feed those hungry eyes. **Day 1 Highlights:** - Uluru (Ayers Rock) - Red Centres Aboriginal Interpretive Cultural Centre - Sacred Rock Art Site - Mutitjulu Waterhole, Kuniya Piti (seasonal), Kantju Gorge - Sunset at Uluru lookout **Meals:** *Lunch, Dinner (*not included for guests being collected from Ayers Rock). **Camping:** Ayers Rock Coach Campground - Permanent Tents or Bush Swags (communal bathroom facilities). **Driving Distance:** 350km. **Hike Distance:** 2-3 km / 2-3 hours.
