I was not expecting the majesty of Ayres Rock. The true impression of size is not conveyed in photographs. We both climbed it and walked around it. Climbing it was exhilarating! Don't get taken in by all the fear stories of the ascent being hard. Just take it slowly (unless you are a serious athlete) and you'll be at the... More

I was one of the many hesitant tourists who came to Uluru thinking why come all this way to see a freakin' rock. I was very surprised indeed once I saw it with my own eyes. Write your names on your tickets and also if you do the climb, if something gets blown away by the wind during your attempt,... More

We visited in summer, but had a very cloudy day so we didn't get to see the real contrast in colours. It did mean though that we could walk around the base in relative comfort (it was only 26C). It's a very spiritual place for the Aboriginees and the cultural centre does a good job of explaining this. Kata Tjuta... More

We visited Uluru in winter, and it was great. Not too hot, hardly any flies, and you still get all the beautiful changing colours. We were also lucky to see it in both sun and rain. When it rains the rock turns purple. Definitely worth the effort to see the effects of changing light at sunset and sunrise. The sunrise... More

I was really surprised at the spectacular diversity of the 4 hr base walk around Uluru and just how variable the rock is as your walk around it. Kata Tjuta walk is also spectacular and I'd recommend taking a day each for both walks.

A must visit while in Central Australia. I expected to get some great photographs and was not disappointed. Be prepared to do a lot of walking.

I think is a must do, especially for australians. The rock itself is iconic, and beautiful. The way it changes colour during the day is something to behold. Up close it is interesting, and has many facets. There are many ways to see the rock without the tour. There is the base walk, and may other little walks to see... More
