We took a 36 minute sunrise helicopter flight around Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) with Ayers Rock Helicopters. Check them out on Tripadvisor. Our pilot’s name was Carmen (from Switzerland).
The sun was just peaking up on the horizon as we lifted off from Ayers Rock airfield.
First was a circuit of “the rock” which casts a massive shadow over 50 km towards the western horizon. This really provides a perspective as to the size of the rock.
Then off to the mystical Kata Tjuta which is best seen from the air.
