You will be picked up from Uluru Resort at the scheduled time and driven to the Pitjantjatjara Lands of Central Australia and Cave Hill, located deep in the desert. The drive through challenging terrain takes approximately 3 hours.
You will be greeted by an Anangu host on arrival. The Anangu are the traditional owners of Cave Hill and this tour will give you an insight into everyday Aboriginal life. Explore the magnificent cave paintings of the Seven Sisters creation story, graphically illustrated on the rock walls of the most significant art site. Learn about Tjukurpa (dreaming) and the Songlines relevant to Anangu life in the desert.
The songlines have been passed down for thousands of years from generation to generation and are used by locals to navigate vast distances. The Seven Sisters songline stretches from the north to the south of Australia, a distance of nearly 2,000 miles.
Admire sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, the famous Uluru located 100kms away, Mount Conner and the imposing Musgrave Ranges. Know about traditional food gathering and the preparation of desert bush tucker delights. After lunch you will be driven back to Uluru Resort.
