  • Overview & Itinerary

    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.
