Uluru

An Australian icon in the rust-red outback

Visit Uluru

Introduction

Uluru, or Ayers Rock, is the Australian continent’s most recognisable natural symbol. Sacred to the local Aboriginal people, it's a place immersed in the legends and stories of the Dreamtime, its iconic crags turning spectacular shades or red and amber at sunrise and sunset against the endless Outback.

It has great cultural significance for the Anangu traditional landowners, who have inhabited the area for more than 22,000 years, and now lead tours uncovering the Dreamtime creation myths and unique flora and fauna associated with the area. Just 40km from Uluru, within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, you'll discover The Olgas – a massive collection of monumental rock domes dating back 500 million years.

However, it’s nearly a 300 miles’ drive away from the nearest township, Alice Springs, and set among countless acres of sweeping arid outback; climate becomes especially important in what is essentially a desert. Those making the pilgrimage, then, are going to want the best weather for those perfect sunrises and raking sunsets.What time of year? If you plan on making an atmospheric base walk, getting up close to the mighty red sandstone, then you should look to the cooler months of the year in August to …
