My partner and I are travelling from Brisbane to Uluru and Kings Canyon for 4-5 nights in November. I'm planning on popping the question while we are away as I figured there would be some impressive beauty all around and it would just set the mood. I've seen a helicopter proposal at Uluru, but I don't like the idea of it. Having never been there though, I'm not sure when the right time to do it would be.
We're planning on doing the following:
Day 1: an afternoon/sunset at Uluru
Day 2: dawn at Kata Tjuta and spend some time doing the Valley of the Winds Walk ans the Walpa Walk, sunset at Kata Tjuta.
Day 3: Dawn at Uluru/base walk (no climb), spare time over lunch (Maybe do the Kantju Waterhole or Mala Walk). Sounds of Silence Dinner
Day 4: Drive to Kings Canyon at leisure- probably staying in Kings Canyon Resort in a Spa Room. Have the "Under a Desert Moon Dinner" either tonight or tomorrow night
Day 5: Explore the canyon doing the KC Loop Walk, Lost City and Garden of Eden walks.
Day 6: Drive back to Uluru for flight home.
A few things stick out to me. I've heard the Sounds of Silence dinner is amazing, so thought maybe on our last night in Uluru I could somehow do it then. Another idea I briefly thought about is to somehow get a guide to take us to some cave drawings, but instead of interpreting them as they should be, he/she could interpret it into a story about us (but not obviously) and lead me into a proposal of sorts. Thoughts? Open to many ideas :)
