Ayers Rock Family Tours

As one of the most iconic Australian landmarks, visiting Ayers Rock (Uluru) is often on many tourists bucket lists.

We tell you why you should definitely book a tour to this great region, and tick it off your list! 

Who can visit Ayers Rock

Anyone can join our tours – from the young to the simply young at heart.  If you are  reasonably fit, have a sense of adventure and love visiting different locations, learning about the local culture and trying new activities, join Adventures Beyond for a tour with a difference.

Families are well catered for at Ayers Rock Resort with a variety of restaurants and interesting activities in Ayers Rock Resort so your kids won’t get bored.  Your children will leave Ayers Rock with a sense of cultural knowledge, an appreciation for beautiful landscapes and a chance to connect with nature that they would never get from a theme park or holiday programme.

When is the best time to visit Ayers Rock

This is an area of extremes so no matter when you visit, be prepared for hot, dry days and chilly nights.

December and January are peak summer months, so a hat, suncream and water is essential.  April and May are great months to visit as the weather is warm and there is little chance of rain, and also September and October as many of the desert plants flower during these months.

 

Family-friendly attractions of Ayers Rock and surrounding areas

This best family tour to Uluru is much more than a holiday; it’s an experience.

Ayers Rock (Uluru) is the main attraction, and is surprisingly doable for families with a well-marked and flat path at the base suitable for baby strollers, and rest stops and information signs along the trail.

Families will enjoy learning about the cultural significance and values of Uluru to the Aboriginal people with expert guides and Dreamtime stories from cultural centre staff. 

Ancient Aboriginal rock art sites are dotted in caves and by waterholes, bringing to life art and stories passed down from centuries that your kids won’t get from any art gallery or museum.

There is the chance to see unique Australia flora and fauna such as desert plants, reptiles and other animals.

Ayers Rock Resort holds free daily indigenous activities year round such as didgeridoo performances, garden walks and cultural dances. You can even learn to throw a boomerang!   Kids can also join a workshop (fee applies) to learn the art of dot painting, where you use traditional Aboriginal symbols to tell stories and create their own colourful and unique artwork to take home.

Other fun things to do include camel rides or Sounds of Silence dinners under the stars.
