Overview

Enjoy the spectacular sights within the Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park from the air and marvel at the immensity of this vast tract of arid terrain.

Gaze down at the vast expanse of fiery red desert and gasp with amazement as you view the magnificent sandstone monolith of the Ayers Rock (Uluru) from above. This is the world’s single biggest rock and a helicopter tour is by far the best way to appreciate its sheer size and splendor.

Choose from 15 minute, 30 minute or 36 minute flight options. It’s your call!

Itinerary

There are three great options for your exciting Helicopter Ride over Uluru and Kata Tjuta: Rock Blasting, Standard Flight and Extended Flight.

For all three options you will be picked up from your hotel at the Ayers Rock Resort at a time suitable to you.

You will then be taken in an air-conditioned vehicle to the Connellan Airport which is the departure point for this tour.

Rock Blasting:
This 15-minute helicopter flight is great value for money for an experience of a life time. Board your helicopter and sit back as you climb the rock in style, taking in views of Mt Conner and Lake Amadeus on the horizon. Take in grand views of the township of Yulara and surrounding sights.

The tour ends back at the Ayers Rock Resort.

Standard Flight:
Board the helicopter for a 30-minute ride and enjoy a bird's eye view of Uluru and the magnificent red desert, all the way to the striking rock formations of Kata Tjuta.

The tour ends back at the Ayers Rock Resort.

Extended Flight:
On this extended 36-minute flight, linger a while longer at Uluru and Kata Tjuta and travel further around these amazing rock formations. This is the best option for the sunrise and sunset flights and for keen photographers.

The tour ends back at the Ayers Rock Resort.

Reviews

Pilot so friendly and knowledgeable.... Terrance Maguire

Beautiful, good organization... just a bit disappointed because when I booked I understood that we'll have a sunset or sunrise tour, and in fact we had a tour at 8.30 am...... Jeam Monin
