~ Make friends with a camel ~
Although Uluru Camel Tours operates daily express camel tours for $80, I definitely think it's worthwhile paying the extra $45 for a sunrise or sunset tour. Due to weather issues, my initial sunrise tour had to be changed to a sunset, but as you can see in the images below this worked out more than fine for me. For any animal rights activists out there, you can tell within the first 5 minutes of arriving at the Uluru camel farm, that these camels are treated like family by the guides. The 2.5-hour sunrise/sunset tour includes 1 hour of trotting along between the camels humps, as well as a social dinner or breakfast at the camel farm afterwards. I was second-to-last boarding the camel train and got Myrtle (my camel) all to myself.
~ Look up ~
The Resort organises daily astronomy tours, which include an expert guide showing you around the night sky by means of telescopes and binoculars. This tour is even worthwhile for those with their own telescopes, as the low humidity and minimal unnatural light in the Red Centre allow you to view the stars and planets in a completely new light.
~ Fly in a helicopter ~
I visited Uluru during my "helicopters are so cool" phase of my life, where I was willing to pay a decent sum of money for a 10-minute experience which usually wasn't all it was cracked up to be. This helicopter experience however, was everything it cracked up to be and more. Although I was only signed up to experience the $110 20-minute scenic flight, as the flight needed a minimum of 2 people and my brother was not cracking under my constant pressure for him to join me, I had to join another couple who had booked the $220 40-minute scenic flight. This change in itinerary ended up being a blessing in disguise as the flight gave me the only real experience with the Kata Tjuta (or Olgas). Hopefully, one day very soon, I will be able to return to better experience them as well as Kings Canyon. If you plan only to take the 20-minute scenic flight, be warned that you'll get an equally amazing view of Uluru from above when you are landing at the airport on your inbound flight if you are sitting on the left hand side of the plane.
