Uluru / Ayers Rock


Uluru / Ayers Rock is Australia’s most recognisable natural icon. Standing 348 m | 1141 ft high, the monolith has a great cultural significance for the traditional Aboriginal owners, the Anangu people.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is located 440 km | 274 mi by road south-west of Alice Springs and encompasses both Uluru and the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), both dating back hundreds of millions of years. Visitors to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park can also browse through the informative and award-winning Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre.

When exploring the base of Uluru, you’ll find a number of excellent interpretative walks, including the Uluru Base Walk and the Kuniya Walk. The Valley of the Winds Walk weaves through the domes of Kata Tjuta to spectacular lookout points. These walks can be done independently or as part of a tour. Visitors stay at Ayers Rock Resort, which is the focal point for the township of Yulara. Atila / Mt Conner, located 100 km | 62 mi east of Uluru, is a spectacular mesa that is often mistaken for Uluru. It is three times as large as Uluru and can be visited on tours from Curtin Springs Station.
