Uluru, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

You've most likely seen the pictures, but you haven't truly seen Uluru until you've watched it change color as the sun rises or sets. Commonly known as Ayer's Rock, this massive piece of sandstone with a circumference of 9.4 km (5.8 mi) rises 348 m (1,142 ft) out of the flat Australian Outback. Take a walking tour with a local Anangu guide to learn about the native plants and animals and the spiritual importance of this natural wonder. Be here at dawn or dusk and discover just how many different shades of red exist. By using our Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park day trip planning website , you can arrange your visit to Uluru and other attractions in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

  • I was going to climb on the Uluru but changed my mine after arriving. It's a saint mountain for locals, I saw the sign all over places that suggest us not climb, I took serious consideration. It's ver...  more »

  • Climbing the rock was a challenge at first, as it was very steep and windy, although it gets better at the top, and it’s really worth the view and the experience. During the climb, I also made some new friends who told me about having to climb the rock the second time, because they didn’t complete it on the first day and felt unaccomplished. I’m glad to have been to this amazing venue in my lifetime and that I took the opportunity to climb it, as I may never get the chance to do so again.
  • This is a wonderful place to visit. Although it is only a huge (10.5 Kilometres walk around the base) lump of hardened sandstone in the middle of the Australian outback; it is far more than that. There is a vibe and aura which Uluru seems to generate and it is very easy to see why the local Aboriginals have such a spiritual relationship with it. Take your time and look in all the little caves and crannies and you will be rewarded by seeing things which other people miss such as the snake I found etched into the wall of a small cave. You can have guided tours, camel rides, ride a bicycle around the base, Segway tours. The park rangers are very friendly and informative. It is extremely worthwhile to visit and when added to other outback destinations like Alice Springs, Darwin and Kakadu you have the makings of a truly memorable Aussie holiday. Just a side note: many people climb the Rock but it is disrespectful to Aboriginal beliefs. Climbing will be banned in 2019. Best visited in winter. A photographers dream. Also a great location for astral photography. I am looking forward to going back.
  • The Rock is awesome. We did climb it and it was a fantastic. Would recommend the climb, but have some fitness. Our disappointment is with the rangers. They are not friendly, overall and rude. The Aboriginals were more friendly. They are not doing the rock any favours by being there.
  • Absolutely amazing, I was blown away by the sheer size and her beauty. I wasn't able to climb her due to the wind :( ....I dont believe that they should stop us from doing it in the future. There are many sacred sites around the rock itself. Just my opinion
  • Its suprisingly vast and spectacular to view it during sunrise and sunset. Unfortunately after spending tons of money to get here and stay here. They overcharge you to get in and view it. Would recommend walking round it and flying over it to get different angles
