Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

— 2 nights
Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to trek up Uluru.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Get outdoors at Uluru and Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre. Do some cultural sightseeing at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga and Walkatjara Art Uluru. There's much more to do: make a trip to Field of Light, contemplate the waterfront views at Mutitjulu Waterhole, trek along Kuniya Walk, and stroll through Uluru Hiking Path.
