Uluru is a enormous rock located in the middle of nowhere, then you only can see this rock in 50 km around. It is so wonderful, beautiful, great! I do not have words to describe this nature wonder! You can walk around it in some marked walks and you can ride a bicycle too. It is so interesting! You can... More

Visited here in October 2011 l wanted to see the rock since I was 11 and the waiting was well worth it. Walked around parts of the rock saw the aboriginal drawings. Then watched the sun set over the rock watching it changing colour as the sun set over it. The next morning was up early to see the sun... More

My son and I went to see Uluru, while my wife and daughter stayed in Sydney. They said:"It is just a rock!" Well, it IS a rock! It is the second largest in the world, 350 meters high and 3,6 km. long. It is a holy place for the aboriginals - like a cathedral to christians. It is a place... More

It is a rock, but what a rock. Mesmerising. You can't help but look at it every time you leave where you are staying. There is a calm ambience around, one of peace and tranquility. A beautiful area, you cannot but help stand in awe and watch the sun go down. Visited April 2014. Walk back to the cultural centre... More

Watching Uluru change colour in the sunset while sipping champagne, and watching it change back again the next morning at sunrise (sans champagne, with hot chocolate instead!) is an incredible experience which I highly recommend. I hadn't imagined that the colour change would be quite so significant and spectacular or that the atmosphere of the place would be quite so... More

Living in cold south west Victoria, I wanted some heat, so I headed to central Australia in January. I broke the weather! Rain and cool temperatures arrived with me as I arrived at Uluru. I witness the rock under bright blue skies through to storm clouds and then as the rains came, witnessed the rare site of waterfalls off the... More

My wife had wanted to visit Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock) for the longest time and since we were on a cruise around Australia we decided to take the trip inland and are really pleased that we did. We took a couple of tours, one to see the sunset, another to see the sunrise over Uluru. Both were great... More

Visited Uluru on a sunrise excursion organized by SEIT tours. Leaving at 5:15 a.m was worth it as the color changes on the mountain were fabulous. The guides, Chella and Lauren, told us about aboriginal history, why Uluru is sacred plus details about the desert landscape. Breakfast with coffee was provided on this excursion as was a one hour guided... More

We took a guided tour of the rock and I enjoyed learning about the Aboriginal stories about the rock and the area around it. It's nice to learn about different cultures. And it's just impressive seeing a huge geological formation like this. But definitely take a fly net - the flies were horrendous. Of course we were there in summer... More
