Departs Ayers Rock Resort
The One Day Cave Hill tour is an Indigenous cultural experience that will provide visitors with an insight into everyday Aboriginal life. Relax and enjoy a trip deep into the desert of the Pitjantjatjara Lands of Central Australia. On arrival we will be greeted by our Anangu host. The Anangu are the traditional owners of Cave Hill, which is the site of the Seven Sisters Tjukurpa (creation time), and are responsible for maintaining only that chapter of the Songline lying within the boundaries of their traditional homeland – a story that has been maintained since the beginning of time.
The highlight of the tour is the magnificent cave paintings - possibly the most significant art site in Central Australia. The drama of the Seven Sisters creation story is graphically illustrated on the ceiling of the cave. Later we walk to the top of Cave Hill to admire a 360-degree panoramic of the surrounding countryside, including Uluru 100kms away, Mt Conner and the imposing Musgrave Ranges.
You will discuss Tjukurpa and the Songlines and learn their relevance to Anangu life in the desert. You will investigate traditional food gathering and the preparation of desert bush tucker delights.
