Check in to the Red Centre
Your morning flight lands at Yulara, the closest town to Uluru. You’ve got a big day ahead of you, so drive straight to your accommodation and check in at the dreamy Desert Gardens Hotel. Ideally located with incredible views of Uluru, you could be tempted to kick back and relax here … but this is an adventure holiday after all. So grab a delicious lunch at the hotel’s Mangata Bistro and get set for a once-in-a-lifetime afternoon.
Take to the skies
Your first adventure awaits, if you’re up for it. Sky Dive Uluru is the region’s premier skydiving attraction, offering tandem skydives over the most incredible landscape this country has to offer. Once the adrenaline of the freefall abates and that parachute opens, you can take in the views of Uluru and Kata-Tjuta, as well as lesser-known features like Lake Amadeus and Mt Connor.
If leaping out of an aeroplane is a little too adventurous for your liking, then take a scenic flight over Kata Tjuta and Uluru instead. From your window seat, you can catch the same breathtaking views without the heart-stopping rush of a freefall.
Climb aboard a camel
After your sky-high adventure, it’s time to get grounded. Climb aboard a camel for an unforgettable Uluru Sunset Camel Ride. This dromedary adventure sees you meandering through the rich red sands atop your curious camel. It’s the perfect place from which to watch Uluru and Kata Tjuta bask in ever-changing light and colours as the sun slips slowly out of view.
Visit an incredible field of light
As darkness descends over the Red Centre, your next treat awaits. Field of Light is a globally-renowned art installation by British artist Bruce Munro. The installation sits on a red dirt canvas in the most spectacular outdoor gallery in the world, the roof a dazzling star-studded sky. Be mesmerised by the gently swaying orbs of light and take in this remarkable sight.
