Visit Uluru

Introduction

Uluru/Ayers Rock is the Australian continent’s most recognisable natural symbol. Uluru is sacred to the local Aboriginal people and turns spectacular colours at sunrise and sunset. 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 will discover The Olgas – a massive collection of monumental rock domes dating back 500 million years.

When to go to Uluru

With its monolithic beauty matched only by its fabled cultural significance, Uluru is one of the world’s must-see natural wonders.
