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.

  • Within National Park - passes avail for Uluru & Kata Juta, 3 day pass adequate. Sunrise & sunset viewing a must. Lots of parking but get there early!! Field of Lights can only be done on a tour (sunrise or sunset). Climbing Uluru is still allowed but not recommended, guided tours available around part of base.
  • Easy to follow path around the perimeter makes this suitable for visitors of all ages. So many flies though, so be prepared for that. Lots of viewing trips from the resort area makes this real accessible for all. The sunrise was my favourite experience, but take a jumper for it as the mornings are very cool.
  • A truly sacred place - it is hard to describe the experience of being here. A truly worthwhile pilgrimage. Respect and recognition!
  • Absolutely special this place! Would recommend the 10.6km Walk around the rock! Beware of snakes.
  • I haven't been since I was a little kid but I loved it then and can't wait to take my partner and daughter there😍
