Tour description provided by Viator

Take a base walk around Uluru (Ayers Rock) as the sun rises over the Australian outback. With no more than 12 participants, the Sunrise Uluru Base Walk is an intimate introduction to one of Australia’s iconic sites. Also known as Ayers Rock, Uluru is one of Australia’s most famous geographic features, known the world over for its natural majesty and its significance to the Anangu Aboriginal people. An Ayers Rock base walk is a must-do for everyone visiting Australia.

Your Uluru sunrise tour guide will take your small group (12 people max.) on a relaxed, 8-mile (14km) base walk around Uluru, where you’ll learn about Uluru’s history and composition, as well as its place in Aboriginal traditions.

On your sunrise walk, Ayers Rock legends come to life when you visit the Mutitjulu Waterhole and see the ancient rock art. Your guide will narrate the Anangu creation story of rival serpents Liru and Kuniya, and explain Uluru’s past and present importance in teaching young Aborigines their cultural heritage. When the sun is up, you’ll take a break to enjoy an outback picnic breakfast amid the sights and sounds of the desert landscape.

Your tour then returns you to the Ayers Rock resort. Seeing Uluru at sunrise is an awe-inspiring experience and this personalized, small group tour is a top Australian vacation activity, highly recommended for first-timers and outback veterans alike.
