See this giant formation of Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) if you possibly can - it will be a unique and truly awe-inspiring moment. We are told the giant rock is formed from the sedimentary bottoms of old sea floors, and has been raised up and rolled over on its side. However, they say there are no fossils within the rock...

From a distance and up close this is an amazing experience. Make sure you have a good observation point for sunset on Uluru and sunrise on Kata Tjuta. It is worth getting up early in the morning to watch the colours change. Please respect the traditional owners request not to climb on Uluru. Take a walk and observe or experience... More

What things to do at the biggest monolith around? Start with the base walk. Almost 12 k but flat easy walking. Take your time and don't rush the experience. Sunset was amazing as the colour changes washes over the rock and grasses. Dont be put off by cloud -it can make it better as the clouds catch the setting suns... More

Uluru is a very special place - I loved our time here. The natural beauty is spectacular. The park is so well signed and set up, with car parking and information everywhere to make it easy for travellers to know more of the area and what to do whilst there. The knowledge sharing of the traditional owners helped me to... More

The surrounding Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is World Heritage Listed and notable in being one of the few properties listed for both its natural and cultural values. Care of the area was returned to the Anangu people in 1985 as the site carries great significance and spiritual importance for them.

Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock) is a giant sandstone monolith that rises from seemingly nowhere. The magnificence of the rock is best experienced at sunrise or sunset when Uluru glows vivid red surrounded by stunning cloudscapes. Uluru is unconditionally sacred to the Anangu people. There are plans to close the climb to the top. Even though park tickets and... More

You think you have an idea of what it looks like, from photos and films -- but you have no idea. The Rock is grander, more austere and atmospheric than you can imagine. Walking around the pathways is an intense experience, with different shapes, textures, microclimate and atmosphere at each turn. Unnecessary and unfashionable to climb it. Avoid it during... More

We spent five wonderful days in this park walking, photography and generally just feeling the spiritual atmosphere found here. We camped in the Ayres Rock Campsite. Clean and nice hot showers, grass in the unpowered sites however power points for charging batteries.

We started our day at the rock going on a 2 hour Mala, guided walk. Well worth the effort as our excellent guide Clinton explained the mythology about the rock and this really improved the experience of walking around the rock. The weather was perfect and at around 20c just right. The features and the Mala story are fantastic. The... More
