The place to come for the Australian outback experience – jaw-dropping geological formations (including world-famous Uluru), sleeping out in swag bags, sampling bush tucker, and connecting with authentic Aborginal culture.
Travel bucket list idea:
Rock art at Cave Hill
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia|
The extraordinary cave paintings at Cave Hill are one of the most significant art sites in Central Australia. They portray the Yankunytjatjara version of the story of the ‘Seven Sisters’, a Creation myth found throughout Aboriginal culture.
A highlight of the all-day excursion is a tour of the caves accompanied by a local Anangu guide. A lunch featuring bush tucker is also included. Tours are not recommended for families with small children.
Getting there & doing it
Cave Hill is located on Aboriginal land, so you must visit as part of an organised tour. This involves a 2.5-hour road trip by 4WD vehicle from Yulara – they’ll pick you from your accommodation. Morning tea and a picnic lunch are provided.
When to do it
Available all year round, seven days a week. Pick up is at 7.30am, and typically you return late afternoon.
Avoid the height of summer (December-February) when temperatures become uncomfortably hot.
