Uluru - Review

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.

  • One of the best well known world places to go. Looking at the rock is amazing all throughout the day as it changes with the light. Great place to visit cammping or hotel or just a day trip from Alice Springs. You can go by sealed road the whole way.

  • It was just AMAZING experience I ever had! I was there for a wedding shoot a few weeks ago. I used to think... “it’s just a big rock” but it’s more than that! Definitely recommend especially the sunrise after The field of lights are FABULOUS!

  • hands down the best part of my road trip. Pictures can say a thousand words, but no words nor pictures can ever describe the awe you feel to be in the presence of the rock formation, the vastness and grandeur of it, that the surface wasn't just a rock face, but a home, a sanctuary to many species that had somehow made it home. I've never felt so small, yet so alive, it was amazing! Didn't do the ascent out of respect for the aboriginals, because it is someone's backyard after all If you have time, stay for the sunset, it is well worth the wait

  • Amazing natural rock formation in the Australian outback. Make sure you leave plenty of time for doing the things you plan as efficiency and being well organised are not high priorities around here.

  • Uluru is one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever seen. The ever changing colours of Uluru from sunrise to sunset is just stunning! I also enjoyed learning about the Dreamtime stories of the local Anangu Aboriginal people and the reasons why they hold great spiritual meaning in every feature of Uluru. It left a lasting impression on me!
