About Uluru, Uluru
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.
- Carry bottled drinking water and snacks with you.
- Do wear sturdy shoes and comfortable clothes.

Uluru, Uluru Reviews
Absolutely beautiful place. So much better than any pic. Well worth a visit. Must do the sunrise and sunset viewing. The walk around it is stunning.
Visiting Ayers was a great experience. Australia’s outback is beautiful. I chose to climb to the top. If you do as well, make sure you’re in reasonable physical shape. It is a bit of a climb. I saw people who had no business being up there. But, once you get to the top, the view is incredible. But, like I said, I love the Australian outback. I went during the spring time, and the one thing I couldn’t stand were the flies. It was so bad I had to buy a head net. If you go out there, prepare yourself for that.
This is really one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in my life. depending on where you are and the lighting this color is different. the walk around it gives you better perspective on how large and beautiful it really is. bring bug spray tho the flies are in full force here.
Incredible experience that cannot be put in words, truly an astonishing landmark. It should also be noted that as of 2019 you will no longer be allowed to climb the rock as it is disrespectful to the aboriginal people, and damages the rock itself.
I traveled to Australia during the Summer (Really Hot!). Uluru is absolutely beautiful! It is also the biggest sandstone rock in the world!
