Uluru also known as Ayers Rock and officially named as Uluru / Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the northern Territory in central Australia. It lies 335 km (208 mi) south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs.
Uluru is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Uluru and Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas, are the two major features of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
- buy and bring with you a FLY NET! there are thousands of flies in the area, DO NOT GO without it! It will be simply impossible walk around!
- commencing from October 2019 it will be prohibited climb the Mountain since every guided journey to the top of the mountain it will be stopped.
- Bring with you a lot of water since you will be in the middle of the desert.
- I have personally booked an economic tour from Alice Spring (round trip 900 km - so expect a full day tour with bus) but it has worth it! during the trip you will visit also different site in the national park.
- most of the guided tour offer as well barbecue at the sunset under Uluru...the view at the sunset it will be simply amazing!
