Y13B - KATA TJUTA AND ULURU SUNSET TOUR + BBQ
After sunset clients are transferred to AAT Kings’ exclusive barbecue site with their Guide. The site is within the Uluru National Park, outside the Cultural Centre set amongst red sand dunes and desert oak trees providing a peaceful desert setting. The site is located far enough away from the resort lights so that there is a clear view of the stars in the southern sky. Once at the site, clients will be served a variety of Australian meats and salads, accompanied by a glass of sparkling wine or orange juice (menus are subject to change). After dinner, the guide will conduct a tour of the night sky, describing and pointing out some of the visible constellations with the assistance of a high beam spotlight (weather permitting). The Guide will also explain some Aboriginal stories that relate to the stars. Clients will then be served tea, coffee and biscuits before returning to Ayers Rock Resort.
Adults: $130.00 | Children: $65.00 | Pensioners: $117.00
