Uluru Holidays

In the heart of Australia’s scorched Red Centre is Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, home to Uluru and the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas).

Uluru’s famous monolith is one of Australia’s most recognisable natural icons. It’s a must-do destination for any first-time visit to Australia, not only to experience its impressive presence but to understand its cultural importance to its traditional Aboriginal owners, the Anangu people.   

The spectacular sandstone rock was once under the sea, but now stands magnificently 348 metres above the dusty landscape. At 3.6 kilometres long and 1.9 kilometres wide, it dominates the desert landscape. Recognisable the world over, it's the oxidized iron in the soil gives the rock and surrounding area its distinctive red-orange colour.

Once at Uluru, it’s not just a case of staring at the giant rock, although the view will take your breath away every time. Unusual rugged scenery with gorges and waterholes abound, unique flora and fauna, Uluru is an area perfect for hiking. The Uluru Base Walk is 10 kilometres and sunrise or sunset are undoubtedly the best times to embark on the track. The Valley of the Winds Walk winds through the domes of Kata Tjuta is another must-do which includes plenty of spectacular lookout points.

Alternatively, why not see Uluru from all angles on a spectacular helicopter trip? Or book the memorable Sounds of Silence experience where you’ll enjoy an authentic Aussie barbecue and stargazing in one of the best spots on Earth.

A holiday to Uluru is an adventure like no other, so take time to really explore this cultural and stunning region of Australia. It is a very remote destination, but with Ayers Rock Airport close by, it’s easy to get to, and there are plenty of nearby accommodation options for every budget. Combine Uluru with Kings Canyon and Alice Springs, and you've got yourself a real outback adventure.

If you visit the Red Centre, watching the sunrise over Uluru is a must, it's simply stunning. Make sure you wrap up warm though, because it can be quite cold in the mornings!
