Depart Ayers Rock Resort early in the morning for the journey deep into the desert and the Pitjantjatjara Lands of central Australia. On arrival meet your Aboriginal host, one of the traditional owners of Cave Hill, which is the site of the Seven Sisters Tjukurpa (Creation story). The traditional owners of Cave Hill are responsible for maintaining only this chapter of the Songline that lies within the boundaries of their homeland – a story that has been maintained since the beginning of time. Your Aboriginal hosts will guide you through the desert landscape to the magnificent cave paintings of the Seven Sisters creation story graphically illustrated on the rock walls of the most significant art site in Central Australia. Afterwards climb to the top of the hill above the cave to take in the view, which presents a 360º panorama taking in Uluṟu, Mt Connor and the imposing Musgrave Ranges. Discuss Tjukurpa and learn about the Songlines and its relevance to Anangu life in the desert. After a BBQ lunch, you will head back to Ayers Rock Resort.
Please note: this itinerary can change at late notice due to cultural reasons and weather conditions, or other conditions beyond our control. Aboriginal hosts are traditional people with strong cultural obligations. When cultural events occur, an Aboriginal host may not be available.
