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.

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.

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
