Ayers Rock is also known by its Aboriginal name “Uluru”. It was named for the Premier of South Australia, Sir Henry Ayers. It is an enormous sandstone monolithic formation and is considered one of Australia’s most iconic natural landmarks. It is 3.6 kms long and rises 348 metres in height. It is also believed that two-thirds of the rock lies beneath the sand.

It holds a sacred place in the creation mythology of the Aboriginal people. There are many stunning pieces of aboriginal rock art around Uluru that dates back at least 5,000 years. Uluru is also known to have the best sunrise and sunset views as the colours of the entire landscape change based on the light. There is an official sunset/sunrise viewing point where one can see the spectacular landscape.

Visitors can either do the entire Uluru Base Walk or cover one or more sections of it. Park rangers guide a daily Mala Walk as well. Other walks are the Kuniya Walk, the Lungkata Walk and the Liru Walk.
