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.
Uluru from the sky
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.
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.
Ready for take off
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.
In the cokpit
Various helicopter services are on offer that can be booked via the Ayers Rock Resort tours desk or online. I travelled with Professional Helicopter Services with prices starting from $150.
Full details of tour options are on their website.
