We crammed in as much as we could in our five days at Yulara: the Sounds of Silence, Kata Tjuta and Uluru sunset, Uluru sunrise and cultural walk and Kings Canyon. Nothing in this part of the world disappointed. It is an absolutely amazing place and we wished we could have stayed for another couple of weeks, to really immerse ourselves in the Red Centre.
All the excursions were fascinating and well worth the money in our opinion. The food was good (not brilliant but always very adequate) and there was plenty of drink and nibbles with the sunsets.
We were so impressed by the AAT Kings guides and drivers who were so knowledgeable with fantastic and comprehensive information on the area, the history - both Aboriginal and settlers, the geology, the plant and animal life, Aboriginal folklore; it was a privilege to speak with them and to hear all their anecdotes. They were all, without exception enthusiastic, friendly, interesting and welcoming, particularly taking into consideration that they have to give the same stories over and over - they made it feel as if we were the first people they had told it to. If the area didn't speak for itself, the guides and drivers would do it for it. However, the area does speak for itself - it is an incredible place.
One last thing, it was a very nice touch that water bottles could always be filled up from the chilled storage on the coach. Nice to see something which isn't commercial.
