Fantastic experience in the Red Centre
Up, up and away to see what is surely Australia's most iconic and beautiful landscape…. Uluru from the air.

Majesty from the air

The majesty of this amazing monolith – Uluru as it is known now by many - is truly seen from a helicopter flight. It is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime trip and a memorable way to celebrate a special occasion.

As you ascend into the sky, the panorama of Uluru comes ever closer and you can see how it dominates the landscape far and wide.

Kata Tjuta; the Olgas
Kata Tjuta

Adding to the wonder are the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta, known also as the Olgas – and how they contrast with the relative smoothness and solitary rock that is Uluru.

Helicopters fill the sky each sunrise and sunset but any time of day is a treat and one that will leave memories etched forever.

If you have a yearning to see the Uluru summit and the Rock at its best, a helicopter ride is a must. You can walk, cycle or even Segway around the Rock but a helicopter ride offers a unique and different perspective and is a guaranteed way to see the summit.

My husband and I did this flight back in 2014. It was the mist amazing view imaginable and worth every cent.

Ayers Rock from the air is magnificent Kevin. We flew in from Alice Springs in a light aircraft in October 1967 when the dirt airstrip was right next to the Rock. What a awesome navigational feature it is, visible on the horizon half an hour before we got there. Neil.
