We visited Uluru in early July with our two teenage daughters

We visited Uluru in early July with our two teenage daughters. Even with the early start of 4:30am this is simply a must when visiting Uluru. The three hour drive to Kings Creek Station gives everyone a chance to have a little sleep and then gently wake up to some carefully chosen songs playing softly as the sun comes up. Breakfast at the station is hearty and they even provided gluten free bread for the coeliacs in the family. it was great to see the landscape out of the resort and Kings Canyon itself is amazing. We weren't sure which walk to do but since we'd had a huge walk the day prior we decided on the walk through the Canyon instead of the more difficult rim walk (which we plan to do next time). It felt great to be in the canyon itself, amongst all the beautiful trees and creek bed. The walk was great and our bus driver/tour guide, Terry, was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and friendly and he taught us so much about the medicinal and food properties of the plants we were seeing. Looking up at the canyon walls was amazing. It is such a memorable place to explore. Afterwards we had the option of a helicopter ride over the canyon before lunch. We were keen to do it as a family but they only catered for three passengers so we decided against it. It was nice to wander around the resort after lunch and our bus trip back was smooth and relaxing. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our day and highly recommend this tour. This trip is a definite 'must do' when visiting Uluru.

We really enjoyed the tour

We really enjoyed the tour. The bus was always on time, the guides were kind and friendly. My son and I took Rim walk that was a great experience, the view was amazing, felt so good!!! My daughter and husband took an easy walk that was a little boring not enough. but overall the tour was great! Thanks!

Had an amazing time with spectacular VIEWS

Had an amazing time with spectacular VIEWS! Such a pretty place in the middle of nowhere. We had a great guide, they were very friendly and full of knowledge. The breakfast was great, make sure you take cash as there are no card machines there. The pub where we had lunch had fantastic meals and range! Would recommend it!
