3 Day 4WD Ayers Rock Tour Goanna Dreaming
This 3 day Ayers Rock small group 4WD tour is the most popular with our clients for over a decade. The tour goes off road unlike other tours so you complete a loop to and from Alice Springs instead of going back on the same 400 kilometre road you traveled out to Ayers Rock from Alice Springs. A True Outback Experience you will treasure forever.
Time to Feel the Heartbeat of the Desert
Wayoutback offers a real outback adventure tour with aussie style and quality. Wayoutback is a genuine small group operator carrying a maximum of 16 people in purpose built 4-wheel drive vehicles. In addition to experiencing the wonders of Uluru (tour Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Watarrka (Kings Canyon), Wayoutback will give you the opportunity to really experience desert driving on dirt roads, bush camps, eating food cooked over a campfire and sleeping under the most amazing southern stars you can imagine.
Learn From the Aboriginal Land Owners
Recently Wayoutback introduced a new option at Uluru giving you the opportunity to experience and learn directly from the aboriginal land owners of Central Australia. While at Uluru you can go on the Aboriginal guided Kuniya Walk+ where you will learn a great deal from Anangu about their mythological stories tied to Uluru and the intimate relationship they have with it. Please note that the Kuniya Walk is in place of doing the base walk or climbing Uluru (climbing is discouraged by Anangu) for clients that give priority to having a direct indigenous experience on tour.
(+Cost additional to Wayoutback tour)
Ayers Rock tour - Day 1
The journey commences heading south to Erldunda driving through the Waterhouse and James Ranges with a stop at The Camel Farm for refreshments and a Camel ride if you’d like to ride a camel +. The tour also stops at Mt. Ebenezer Roadhouse where you can see and purchase Aboriginal artefacts. On the way to Uluru (Ayers Rock) there is a stop to view Atila (Mount Connor), a mesa tableland and the first massive rock formation of the trip.
After a stop for lunch and your arrival at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, you will head to the Cultural Centre and the opportunity to learn about the local Aboriginal law and religion (Tjukurpa) before a short guided walk at the base of Uluru. At this point you can take a full base walk, climb Uluru if you choose to do so, or join the Aboriginal guided Kuniya Walk +. Please note that the Kuniya Walk is in place of doing the base walk or climbing Uluru (climbing is discouraged by Anangu) for clients that give priority to having a direct indigenous experience on tour.
Of course no Uluru tour would be complete without experiencing the famous changing colours of the Rock at sunset, with complimentary sparkling wine and nibbles. It's a great time to kick back and think about the day and the expanse the desert.
