Yulara — 2 nights

Yulara takes its name from the local Aboriginal words for "howling" and "dingoes," which conveys the town's isolated location in the Outback.
You've now added Uluru Camel Tours to your itinerary. Explore Yulara's surroundings by going to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga & Walpa Gorge). The adventure continues: cruise the town with Uluru Segway Tours, take in the pleasant sights at Lungkata Walk, don't miss a visit to Field of Light, and contemplate the waterfront views at Mutitjulu Waterhole.

For reviews, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Yulara trip planner.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park — 3 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.
On the 12th (Sat), explore the activities along Mutitjulu Waterhole and then take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: admire the verdant scenery at Valley of the Winds, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Walpa Gorge.

For more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park day trip planner.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is very close to Yulara. In October in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 18°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 14th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive back home.
