It is tough to know how to review this trip. The information conveyed was extremely interesting: We learned how to look for water, how to collect miniscule seeds to make flour, and we heard the chapter of the dreamsong that belongs to Cave Hill, as well as, for the first time, understanding how the dreamsong is handed off from place...

I suspect this tour isn't for everyone in that it is a long trip, some of it on unpaved roads. It is not the type of trip we usually take, but we thought it was worth every minute of it. it's a great way to see the country side away from Uluru. You get a chance to see some remote... More

It's a long way to cave hill from Ayers Rock Resort (approx 2 hours, 1/2 off road) but well worth the trip. Once there, a beautiful indigenous family spent the day with us, sharing their wonderful stories, dance and 'bush tucker'. The views from the top of Cave Hill are amazing and well worth the climb.

This amazing tour gave us more than we ever imagined. If you want a brief but real insight into an indigenous experience in of living in central Australia this day trip is for you. It's a long trip over some rough roads but our air conditioned vehicle handled it beautifully. We actually travelled across the border into the APY lands... More

Our family really enjoyed this tour, a chance to see the amazing landscape and learn and understand about a special part of aboriginal culture and history. We went on several very good tours and this was my favourite.

We were collected by our white guides (Piranpa) named Page and Sarah who warmly greeted us and then off we travelled on our 3.5 hour journey to Cave Hill.Most of the journey was on a beautiful red dirt road. Because the land has had 2 years of plentiful rain after many years of drought, the vegetation in the desert was... More

The best of this experience was seeing the Cave Paintings. Some are over 20,000 years old and some are relatively recent. Our Aboriginal guide told us some of the dreamtime songline. He was difficult to understand and our local tour guide translated for us. The disappointing part of this experience was that except for the Aboriginal guide and his family,... More
