This is a once in a lifetime exclusive invitation to visit the remote Pitjantjatjara Lands of Central Australia. You will travel by 4WD deep into the desert to meet your Aboriginal hosts, the traditional owners of Cave Hill – the most significant art site in Central Australia.

Join a traditional owner of Uluru, a member of the Uluru family, on their homelands and spend time learning about the oldest living culture in the world. Today you will experience a unique and exclusive experience touring to Patji, located just outside of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Explore this extraordinary environment by 4WD with your Aboriginal guide, stopping along the journey to hear stories, including how Paddy Uluru fought for Aboriginal land rights, and where Uluru is today. The traditional owners of Uluru want to share their personal stories with you on their land. Join them for afternoon tea at a remote shelter to hear how they survived in this environment before tourism started in the region. Continue to a private sand dune to marvel at the expanse of the desert overlooking Uluru and Kata Tjuta while enjoying drinks and light snacks at sunset. (B)
