Awesome to see. Its size and stature. The history and Mala ranger guided walk very interesting and informative and is free. Sunset and Sunrise is something definitely to be done however we didn't find it as dramatic as the advertising suggests. We feel awesome place to see and do but is one of those places that once done you wont... More

My wife and I (both over 65) joined a three day tour of Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon to discover we were at least 35 years older than the next oldest on the trip and generally 40 years older. But - we slept under the stars in a swag on the ground, kept up with them and were happy... More

Don't miss the opportunity to watch a sunrise and/or sunset at Uluru, catching the changing colours as the suns rays fade. The Mala Walk, with a Park Ranger, was a highlight of our visit, giving a very good explanation of the Aboriginal history & story of their connection to Uluru. We walked around the rock, in respect for the Aboriginal... More

Beautiful contrast in colours; vibrant orange earth and rocks, vibrant blue sky, many shades of green and look closely for the flowers. We joined the park ranger for the free morning Mala walk along the base of Uluru. The rangers have been trained by the local Anangu aboriginal people in what to share about their tradition. The ranger was very... More

In hindsight the three day swag camping trip to Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon with a great group of people and first class guide in the form of Luke Scott Willson was the best part of my travels in OZ. Sydney's opera house, Noosa's beach, Cairns' great barrier reef, Darwin's Kakadu National park are all amazing but this trip... More

Great to visist this Australian landmark. Going for sunrise was beautiful. Looking at the'rock' at different parts of the day, as the light hits it differently never grew dull. I loved the red, red earth.

The sight of Uluru rising out of the desert sands is a mystical experience. You can almost feel the spirits of the ancestors guarding this special place. You get a real sense of how ancient and sacred this land really is. It is such a majestic and awe inspiring site. Make sure you get to view it at dawn and... More

Having dreamed about going the rock for many years, I was hoping not to be disappointed. I was not. The sunset was stunning and the thunderstorms nearby gave it an eerie feeling, but later ruined the view. The sunrise was also ruined by clouds. If you enjoy walking, allocate at least 2-3 full days, so you can do the walk... More
