Experience the tranquillity of the pre-dawn land under a canopy of stars, and watch the amazing transformation of colours and life as the desert awakens with Uluru and Kata Tjuta as your backdrop.
Once the sun is up, enjoy a guided tour at the base of Uluru, and visit the Mala Walk. Here you will see the tjukuritja (physical evidence) of the Mala Tjukurpa (creation story) and gain a deeper understanding of this ancient story that will be brought to life in the outback sky through cutting-edge drone, laser, light and sound technology.
