It's remote, it's hot, it's expensive to come here, but you have to see this if you visit Australia. The sight is majestic and impressive and you will immediately understand, why this is a sacred place to the Aborigines. It's not just a rock, it's THE rock, I haven't seen anything alike in the world. I would also recommend that you take some time to explore Uluru, and Kata Tjuta as well. I found it a much better experience to stay for two days, rent a car and explore by my own then to make a day trip from Alice Springs. You can stop whenever you want, find your own special place (and return to it a couple of times), take photos of wild life, and it's probably not much more expensive.

Yes its a rock but the best looking rock at sunrise i have ever seen. Steeped in local indigenous culture that you only get to learn a little about although it is a priviledge none the less. It truly is a spectacular piece of country. We were there Jan 2013 and the place was surpisingly a mix of lush green and red desert. There is a sensitive nature to this place from the view of the local people and thankfully all involved seem to starting to respect that after some mistakes in the past. If you visit you will see that climbing Uluru is frowned upon for a number of reasons and that is something that should be respected and i dont feel that much is missed by not climbing. You really have to experience it yourself to appreciate this unusual place. Enjoy!

Things have certainly changed at Eyre's Rock since I visited the site in 76.At that time you could access the site freely, climb the rock and access many of the sacred site once visited by the inhabitants of the dream time.Places like the "Initiation Cave" sacred to the original tribes of this vast country we call Australia, the Kangaroo tail streaming down the side off the rock, climb to the summit of the rock sign your name in the visitor's book and then look in awe at the magnificent sights from aloft the rock, sights stretching out to all horizon, out past the Olga's nearly into ever-space.Tourism came to Ayers Rock with great improvements in the Hospitality Industry which is evident today and being supported by National Parks and changes to Australia Government Policies which recognised the early inhabitants of this wonderful site as true caretakers of Uluru. Yes things have changed since I visited the site, take the time to "feel the spirit of the Rock" to see the changing colours, and hear the stories of the dream-time.

My young bride and I left for Australia in December of 1974. I accepted a teaching assignment in the town of Werribee, Victoria. Our first vacation was an 18 day round trip tour of Southern Australia and Northern Territory. My wife and I were awestruck at the shear magnitude and unique beauty of Ayres Rock and the Olgas. Both are really magical with their change of color from morning to night. Absolutely a photographer's delite and an experience that you will never forget. We both climbed the Rock and spent time oogling at a 360 degree panarama view of the desert with the Olgas in the distance. I still have music sticks, a digeri doo, and a wooden lizard, all of which hand made and sold by the native aboriginals. Wow, the camp area was great and the mere fact that Roos, Emus, and big lizards were within viewing distance was really a treat. And of course, the tour guides were the best. If I were planning this trip, I'd ensure it included Alice Springs and Coober Pede (Opal town). Pardon if some of the spelling is not quite right, but you can trust me that this trip was one of the best that my wife and I have ever taken (I've had sixty one years of living to try to beat this one- LOL).
