A must to see by ground and by air (helicopter) ,the best time to explore Uluru is in the morning before it gets too hot.

Fantastic scenery but we were unprepared for the flies and were attacked as soon as we got out of the car. We went back to the Visitor centre and they did not have any fly nets so had to go back to Yulara (40km round trip) to buy some before we could continue. The walk up the rock was closed... More

After always going on beach and overseas holidays it was a complete turn around going on vacation to Uluru. Seeing photos of these wonders does not do them justice! I was blown away by the beauty and serenity of being in the outback. I can't believe that it took me 49 years to see this amazing place in my own... More

Uluru is seriously a sight to be seen in real life. We visited a few times over our three days, it was very hot & therefore a lot of flies (I think due to recent rainfall but I'm only guessing). I'd suggest seeing sunrise, sunset & mid day whenever possible as the rock changes so much dependent on light conditions.

We visited the Uluru twice during the trip arranged by our tourist agency to see the rock at sun set and sun rise. The sun set bit was arranged soon after our arrival and we were rather disappointed because there was overcast and the sun did not come out to greet us. So all one saw was a huge piece... More

If you are expecting to be "entertained", this is the wrong place for you. It is a giant rock in the middle of an otherwise flat outback. It takes considerable effort to get here--flying into Alice Springs (plus 6 hour drive) or Yulara (about a 30 min or so drive), so you had better be sure you are excited to... More

Taking in the breathtaking view of Uluru on the horizon as it emerges from the red sand and barren landscape is one of the finest natural experiences and truly spiritual. The heat of the desert, emus roaming through the bush and the National parks other wonders like the Kata Tjutas are all things to do and see. Take the walk... More

There are many viewing platforms for this event and I recommend that you research where you want to be. No platform is in the 'wrong place', just different views. Do you want to see Uluru awaken? If so then the sun needs to rise behind you as you look at the Rock. If you want to see Uluru awaken with... More

No doubt the rock is truly remarkable. But To me it seems you are looking at it from the wrong side. The rocks true majesty is not fully revealed because the sun comes up on the other side. I have heard that before this new area was built the old one which was used for 50 years was in fact... More
