Uluru is a unique sandstone structure located in North Australia and is considered a sacred site by the Pitjantjatjara Anangu people. The area around the Uluru has a number of waterholes and beautiful rock caves with ancient rock paintings adorning the walls. Needleless to say, its spiritual role comes from its archeological importance and along with the surrounding terrain, the formation is one of the most spell binding views in the country!

The formation itself is 1,142 feet tall and 9.4 kilometers in length. The ancient artwork that you can see on the Uluru is 5,000 years old! What truly makes a visit here worth it, is seeing the color of the formation change as the day progresses and around dusk, the sheer red color of the Uluru is nothing short of divine! The National park is home to many varieties of fauna including 21 species of mammals, 73 species of reptiles and 178 species of birds. Do watch out for the Emus, Liru snakes, blue tongued lizards and Kingfisher birds spotted here among other gorgeous creatures. The park is also home to more than 400 species of plants – many of which have traditional and medicinal use.

The fact that the Aboriginal people still own the Uluru, adds to its authentic charm. Do try to stay at a nearby hotel for a few days to make the most of your trip.

  • I spent the Easter long weekend at Uluru. It was such an amazing experience, it is definitely a great place to visit if you want some time to relax, it's so quite and disconnect from city life, which is fantastic. A must see location for everyone who lives in Australia and for anyone visiting Australia. Worth it !

  • Really unique and beautiful experience definitely worth the drive over from Adelaide. It's amazing that you get to see cave paintings, I never really heard that's what I would see so it was amazing,in being so close to that history. I have to admit I was disappointed by the $20 fee per person for visiting something that is natural and not man made and getting charged that amount!? It is a bit absurd.

  • Beautiful Cultural Landmark. A historic work of art. Who knew a big rock could hold so much interest?

  • Unique experience! Everyone comes during sunset (what is definitely good) but you should seriously consider coming for sunrise! One of the most memorable experience of my life!

  • Uniquely Australian. Interesting views. A nice hike around the circumference... but take lots of water and try to go on a cooler day. There's no shade and the heat can be suffocating. Take the time to learn about the Aboriginal tales that described the shapes and crevices of this giant monolith.
