My advice is admire it, absorb all of its beauty and spiritual presence, stay a couple of days and watch it change it's magic. One should not climb it or remove any rock, stone or even a pebble as it is a sacred site and has many powers. It has been known that people who did remove artifacts returned them... More

Nothing quite prepares you for the incredible first view of the Rock! As you weave around following the road, the rock appears and then disappears until you arrive and see it in its full glory. Its definitely a matter of you have to visit it to really understand the majestic nature of it. Pictures definitely dont do this place justice.... More

This is brilliant! The sunset, the sunrise, the base track, the cultural centre, the Olgas. There is so much to see and do. We will definitely be back again to Uluru.

Apparently many people still visit Uluru with the intention to climb the might rock, but there is so much more to do!! Visit the cultural centre and stay to watch the informative videos and check out the free talks happening. The Uluru base walk so you can really see what a completely different world the Rock is up close. Is... More

I haven't enough words to describe how i was happy to go there.. before going you think "ok, but it's only a rock", what a mistake!! The place is full of respect, magic, and when the guides tell you about the 'dream stories' you will understand why it is so important for aborigenal people and why they hope you won't... More

Uluru, the world largest monolith and Australia most recognizable icon rises from the desert in a breathtaking ever changing color. Here I am standing in front of Ayers Rock in the sunset viewing area, my heart beating fast, and I`m lost for words. This has been the dream of my life, ever since I could afford to sit on a... More

Finally visited Uluru this July. We did full walk around it, but frankly if known would not done it, too long and second half is very unproductive and simply time waste. The western part was nice, where the paintings and the lake is, go back after that. Sunrise also was not impressed (and we had very good sunny weather). However,... More

We were fortunate to arrive on a day when the Uluru climb was open. It can be closed in high temp and high wind situations. Let me tell you, if its closed its for a good reason. The wind was gusting 2/3 of the way up the rock and in parts I thought one wrong step or a slip and... More
