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.
An amazing vision that tests the senses. Best seen early morning or late afternoon. Was surprised at the amount of vegetation around the base perimeter. The non officially photographed (eastern) side ... more »
Wunderschöner Besuch am ehrwürdigen Uluru. Man spürt die Energie die dieses Wahrzeichen der Anangu mit sich bringt. more »Wonderful visit at the venerable Uluru. You can feel the energy that brings this landmark of the Anangu with.
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.
