Itinerary

There are two options for your Camel Ride – Sunrise or Sunset. Each experience has its own special magic.

Sunrise Camel Ride
You will be picked up from your Ayers Rock Resort hotel, about 1 hour before sunrise, and driven to Uluru Camel Farm. During the journey you will be provided with a camel riding disclaimer form. This should be completed and provided to the driver on arrival at the Camel Farm.

At the Farm you will learn something about camels and the history of camels in rural Australia. These desert creatures are well suited to the hot, dry climate of Australia's interior. Imported in the 19th century, they were the main means of Outback transport until the development of railways and roads.

You will meet your camel and climb aboard ready for the journey. Each animal will carry two guests. The camel ride lasts approximately 1.5 hours, with stops for photographs and explanations. Enjoy the glorious sunrise over Uluru.

On return to the Camel Farm enjoy billy tea, damper and other snacks and a chance to purchase items from a unique range of camel souvenirs. You will then be driven back to your accommodation.

Sunset Camel Ride
For this tour you will be picked up from your hotel at Ayers Rock resort about 90 minutes hours prior to sunset.

The evening ride is the same as the morning tour except that of course you will be watching sunset rather than dawn. At the end of the tour you will be served snacks, beer, wine or soft drink.

At the end of the trip you will be dropped back at your hotel at Ayers Rock Resort.
