Uluru Camel Tours


A great way to explore the great Central Australian desert is from the back of a camel. Camels, ideally suited to the hot, dry climate of Australia's interior, were imported in the 19th century and remained the principal means of outback transport until railways and roads were established. Today there are an estimated 200,000 one-humped, dromedary type camels in the wild. Only a few are still used by humans, mostly for touring the fascinating ecology of the desert.

Camel to Sunrise

Watch the desert come to life and learn about the flora and fauna along the trail from your knowledgable cameleer.

Take some time to explore the camel museum and gift shop before we return you to your hotel.
