Ayers Rock (Uluru) is Australia's most recognisable natural icon and is of significant cultural importance for the traditional Aboriginal owners, the Anangu people. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is located 440 kilometres by road south-west of Alice Springs and encompasses both Uluru and the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta. When exploring the base of Uluru, there are a number of excellent walks, including the Uluru Base Walk and the Kuniya Walk. The Valley of the Winds Walk winds through the domes of Kata Tjuta and includes spectacular lookout points. Do not miss watching the sun rise or set over one of the world's most famous landscapes, truly spine tingling.
