Getting a view of this familiar site may be as easy as picking up a postcard, but making the arduous journey to Australia’s remote Red Center to see the rock is well worth it! Dating back more than 700 million years ago, the ‘big rock’ remains at the spiritual core of one of the oldest living people in the world, Australia’s Aboriginals. Thirty years ago, this sacred land was handed back from Westerners to its traditional Aboriginal owners, Uluru declared a dual natural and cultural World Heritage Site. Gone are the days when ‘I climbed Ayers Rock’ t-shirts ruled, today the tours of Uluru take a step back in time, offering an inspiring education into Aboriginal culture, folklore and customs. As close to the nation’s geographical center as you can get, the giant monolith remains forever in the heart of Australians and travelers alike.

Our tips for Ayers Rock

Region tips:

  • Detour to the equally impressive Kata Tjuta region. The spectacular grouping of tall red boulders is a site not to be missed. A visit to the Kata Tjuta region and a tour of the valleys and gorges within and around the domed rocks is a must-do when visiting.
  • Be culturally aware. Remember, this top attraction is also a place of deep cultural and sacred significance to its owners, the Aboriginal Anangu people. Show courtesy and follow your guide’s instructions to ensure your trip is great for you and locals alike.
  • Bring your walking shoes. There’s plenty of things to do in Uluru beyond the big rock, with a bundle of walks and hiking trails to meander on and things to explore.
