Uluru, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

You've most likely seen the pictures, but you haven't truly seen Uluru until you've watched it change color as the sun rises or sets. Commonly known as Ayer's Rock, this massive piece of sandstone with a circumference of 9.4 km (5.8 mi) rises 348 m (1,142 ft) out of the flat Australian Outback. Take a walking tour with a local Anangu guide to learn about the native plants and animals and the spiritual importance of this natural wonder. Be here at dawn or dusk and discover just how many different shades of red exist. By using our Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park day trip planning website , you can arrange your visit to Uluru and other attractions in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

  • When we first set eyes on the rock as we were flying in we knew we had come to a magical place. The rock is awesome and a few facts we learned made it more so. 350 metres above the ground and 6 klms b...  more »

  • Really unique and beautiful experience definitely worth the drive over from Adelaide. It's amazing that you get to see cave paintings, I never really heard that's what I would see so it was amazing,in being so close to that history. I have to admit I was disappointed by the $20 fee per person for visiting something that is natural and not man made and getting charged that amount!? It is a bit absurd.
  • Beautiful Cultural Landmark. A historic work of art. Who knew a big rock could hold so much interest?
  • Unique experience! Everyone comes during sunset (what is definitely good) but you should seriously consider coming for sunrise! One of the most memorable experience of my life!
  • Uniquely Australian. Interesting views. A nice hike around the circumference... but take lots of water and try to go on a cooler day. There's no shade and the heat can be suffocating. Take the time to learn about the Aboriginal tales that described the shapes and crevices of this giant monolith.
  • Amazing place to visit. Stunning views. Highly recommend the Segway tour
