Our afternoon takes us to Maruku Arts for a dot painting workshop under the expert guidance of local indigenous artists. Tonight, toast the beauty of Uluru as you watch the sun’s dwindling rays light the rock up one final time before making a hasty retreat. Savour four magical hours dining under the starry outback sky where storytellers share tales as told in the stars. Enjoy pre dinner drinks and canapés, and as the sun sets we will feast on a BBQ of authentic Australian delicacies and classic desserts, all complemented by Australian wines. Lunch is at own expense today. GGP

DAY 4. Saturday – Uluru Camel Cup (B,D)

Today we frock up and rock up to Uluru’s feature event of the year, the Uluru Camel Cup. This may sound like a strange event however with 1 million wild camels in the outback, it is no wonder this event came into existence. The day begins with qualifying races before moving to the big events of the day, the Dash for Cash, Plate Race and the highlight, the Uluru Camel Cup. Off the track, there is plenty to see and do with stock whip demonstrations, wheel barrow races, outback style markets and even a camel dung throwing competition. Not to be outdone by the Melbourne Cup Carnival, the Uluru Camel Cup even hosts a Fashions on the Field (or Fashions on the red dirt!). We encourage you to don your suit, tie, top hat, fascinator and fancy dress to take part in the fun. A true outback event that will leave you with lasting memories. Lunch is at own expense today.
