Uluru (Ayers Rock)

Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park is home to the world famous Uluru (Ayers Rock), the physical red heart Australia and one of Australia's most iconic natural landmarks. The monolith stands at a towering 348 metres tall and has a circumference of over 9 kilometres, with the bulk of its mass lying underground.

In 1873, surveyor William Gosse sighted 'the Rock' and in honour of the then Chief Secretary of South Australia Sir Henry Ayers, named it Ayers Rock. It wasn't until 1993 that Uluru became the first icon in Australia to be given back its Aboriginal name and making it the first official dual-named feature in the Northern Territory.

After a day of exploring, you can take in the unforgettable experience of an Uluru sunset. Feel the magic of the outback as you sip on a glass of wine and witness the ever changing colours of Uluru. Essentially grey, the oxidation of iron on the surface of the rock gives it a striking orange-red hue and is responsible for creating its radiant glow.

Stop by the Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park Cultural Centre, the best place to get acquainted with the Anangu country. A wander through the "Tjukurpa Tunnel" will introduce you to the culture of the Anangu people and Aboriginal law (Tjukurpa). Learn about Aboriginal creation stories, ancestral beings, admire local art and discover the significance of the several walks available around the area.

Discover this intriguing World Heritage Listed wonder as you follow in the footsteps of the land's ancestral beings absorbing the stories sacred to the Anangu community. The natural beauty and rich culture of Uluru will be revealed as you explore the base by foot on the famed base walk, home to waterholes, unique desert flora, caves and ancient rock paintings.

However you choose to explore Uluru, you'll no doubt gain an understanding of the innate spirituality and peacefulness that resounds from this ancient landscape.
