Ayers Rock Tours & Experiences

Cultural tours of Ayers Rock tours with Aboriginal guides, known as Anangu Tours, are very popular. They go from Yulara, and include sunrise breakfasts with views of the striking attraction. Visitors are led along the ancient Liru Walk while they learn all about the Aboriginals’ ancestors, including Lungkata, the Blue Tongue Lizard Man. The guides also demonstrate traditional bush skills.

The camel tours involve, unsurprisingly, a camel trek from the nearby farm through the surrounding desert to a viewpoint overlooking Ayers Rock. Groups can arrive at their destination at either sunrise or sunset, and beer and a local meal are provided.

There are a couple of companies that provide four-wheel drive tours of Ayers Rock. They include Lost In Australia safaris, and Travelwild Ayers Rock. Both are well suited to backpackers on multiday camping tours.

Helicopter tours go from the airport and provide a unique bird’s eye view of Ayers Rock, with the added option of visiting the Olgas and/or King’s Canyon. Book online or in Yulara.

Dinner tours are one of the best Ayers Rock tour options, and the Sounds of Silence Dinner offers a star-lit meal near the rock. Tourists dine buffet-style while guides talk about Ayers Rock and the constellations above. The package includes a main course and dessert, and there is beer and champagne available. A campfire is lit on winter tours, and it is always best to book in advance.

The same company operates Desert Awakenings breakfasts, although not as frequently as the dinners. This option includes a tour around Ayers Rock as well as a hearty feed.

Ayers Rock tours from one to five days can also be arranged from Alice Springs; they usually include a stop-off at King’s Canyon. In addition, tours can also be arranged from cities outside the Northern Territory, including Melbourne. Many also visit Ayers Rock as part of an all-encompassing tour of Australia.
