Australia travel fanatics can now enjoy one of the country's most famous sightseeing attractions due to an expanded itinerary from Virgin Blue.
The new journeys will see passengers able to visit Uluru - also known as Ayers Rock - from Sydney more easily, with flights available from 2 August, according to local organisation Voyages Hotels & Resorts.
"Australia's most famous landmark, Uluru, incorporates dramatic outback landscapes with the history and traditions of one of the world's oldest cultures, the Anangu people," the company stated.
Chris Tallent, chief executive of Voyages Hotels & Resorts, said that he and his firm are pleased that the airline has realised the tourism potential of the area.
This move will see a number of international holidaymakers making the trip to Uluru, he explained, which will promote regional growth.
The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is open all-year round, with individuals able to visit between the hours of 05:30 and 20:30 local time during March.
