    http://www.ecotours.com.au/detail_uluru.html?CODE=UDT&pcode=AUDET0029X

    We booked our tour with Ecotours who specialise in small groups (there were just the 2 of us)!! Picked up from our accommodation at 2pm we were driven out towards Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). Your guide explains all about the area, the geology, the flora etc. You stop at a couple of look out points for photo's etc before making your way to Walpa (Olga) Gorge where you will leave the vehicle and take a walk through the Gorge. The Guide points out various trees etc which the aboriginal people (Anangu) use for fruits etc. We were then driven back to our hotel, arriving at approx 5pm. If you are planning to go on the Sounds of Silence dinner this tour is timed perfectly to get you back to the resort in time. The tour costs approx $AU85 for adults and $AU64 for children. Entry to the National Park is $AU25 and is valid for 3 days - check if your tour includes this or not.

    Tour booked with Ecotours - small group (approx 12 of us). Tour picks up from accomodation at approx 6am and drives out towards Uluru (Ayers Rock).

  • 3. Sounds of Silence Dinner
    http://www.ayersrockresort.com.au/sounds-of-silence/

    This is one of those 'must do' things when visiting Uluru (although you make think twice if your not keen on insects)! You will be taken to a dune situated between Uluru and Kata Tjuta where you will enjoy canapes and sparkling wine. You will see the famous sunset over Uluru prior to you having the BBQ meal. A wide choice of local delicacies including Kangaroo, Emu, Crocodile & Barramundi are available. As night falls you get to see some amazing stars and the guides talk you through what you are seeing. After dinner you can take your tea/coffee with you whilst you linger around the campfire - great on a chilly desert evening! You will then be dropped back at your accommodation. The tour takes about 4 hours and costs $AU149 for adults.
