My husband and I walked around the rock( 10kms) and 1 km detour. I have a pretty bad knee which held up for the big walk. I actually felt really pleased with myself that I actually made it. We didn`t have any problems with flies so I guess August was a good moth to visit. Make sure you carry a... More

DId the rock, have been avoiding it the last few years of driving past, mainly because of the tourist buses going in there. Went to Uluru first, stayed at the campground thank goodness. Its great as long as you avoid the tourist traps of spending the big dollars. Spent 3 nights 4 days, probably could have done with a day... More

A trip in winter meant cold days, freezing nights, but thankfully NO flies. Clear night skies are unlike anywhere else I have ever seen. Both Uluru and Kata Tjuta are beautiful sites, but we found it very controlled in where and what you can do there. A Sunrise viewing area that has been created at great expense for the tourist...

I was skeptical of Uluru's grandeur before I visited ("I mean, it's just a big rock, what's the big deal?"), but it is truly iconic for all the right reasons. The rock truly a natural wonder. I could sit there and just watch it throughout the day, changing with the sky. I felt so fortunate to be able to visit.... More

We arrived after lunch and did a 3k walk partly around the rock before returning to the cultural centre for an excellent coffee. Then we drove to the sunset viewing car park and watched a superb sunset. The car park fills up early with many visitors making an afternoon of it with drinks goodies etc. All great fun

This is one of the must do's if your an Aussie although walking the tracks is a real multi cultural experience. I didn't climb but did the full base walk which is very doable for anyone of moderate fitness during the winter months. In summer the 10.4km track could be a real challenge. Is it worth doing, absolutely. The rock... More

You can look at thousands of pictures and think this site is impressive, but until you are standing in front of it you will not appreciate its awesome size and grandeur. We took a tour with a native guide who explained some of its mysteries and stories and showed us tranquil pools and native rock paintings. This is truly a... More

Uluru was a wonder. It was very impressive at sunset as it gradually changed colour as the sun set. I also got up and watched the sunrise over Uluru, this was wonderful too but sunset was far the best. The difference in temperature from sunset to sunrise was significant. My advice is if you watch the sunrise wrap up warm... More

I stayed at Yulara as part of a conference & found the best way to visit Uluru & Kata Tjuta was to hire a car & drive myself. Hertz & Thrifty have offices at the info centre. They told me they were fully booked for the week, but I managed to book a car through the Hertz website no problem.... More

I was literally dragged to Uluru, complaining a fair amount of the trip, forced to drive from Adelaide with a round trip distance of 2891km. I am happy to say it was well and truly worth it! The first thing that grabs you is the enormity of Uluru and then the massive crowds of European tourists. There is a lot... More
