  • Uluru & Kata Tjuta 25-Minute Helicopter Experience

    1. Uluru & Kata Tjuta 25-Minute Helicopter Experience

    See both the beauty of Uluru and Kata Tjutaon this helicopter experience. This tour will showcase Kata Tjuta, which means 'many heads'. It is made up of a group of 36 conglomerate rock domes, the highest of which stands 198 meters taller than Uluru. Ensure that you don't miss out on seeing the entire formation by taking a ride in by helicopter. With the wide spread of the domes and local restrictions due to sacred sites, access from the ground is restricted to only 75% of Kata Tjuta.

    Embark on a trip that combines this experience with viewing Uluru, and which will leave you with cherished memories and photographs that will last a lifetime.

    Friendly, helpful, informative staff. Flight was amazing over Uluru and Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

    Muck was a great guide who clearly knew his content. He was super friendly and really engaged with our four kids, answering all their questions. He was a fount of knowledge about Uluru, from the geological Origins to the fascinating cultural significances to the local Anangu people. Mick shared with us many of the important legends and stories and was very respectful of the several areas where some information and pictures are forbidden.
