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.

Uluru, Uluru Reviews

  • Easy to follow path around the perimeter makes this suitable for visitors of all ages. So many flies though, so be prepared for that. Lots of viewing trips from the resort area makes this real accessible for all. The sunrise was my favourite experience, but take a jumper for it as the mornings are very cool.

  • A truly sacred place - it is hard to describe the experience of being here. A truly worthwhile pilgrimage. Respect and recognition!

  • Absolutely special this place! Would recommend the 10.6km Walk around the rock! Beware of snakes.

  • Possibly the most amazing thing youll ever do or see. This place is amazing. If you have ever thought about coming. Do it... its something you must see and experience. Amazing people and beautiful iconic views. We learnt so much from the elders of the local tribe. ❤

  • A really beautiful and unique place to visit, the sunrise and sunset are amazing. The aboriginal history is quite interesting.
