Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is incredibly important within Aboriginal culture as a source of legends and traditions. At 348m (1,142ft) high, it rises starkly from the flat landscape that surrounds it. Sunrise and sunset are the best times to visit, as the sandstone glows a deep red making for a spectacular photographic opportunity. This enthralling tour takes you to the eastern side to see the sun come over the horizon as you relax with some refreshing morning tea.
Next you’ll have an interesting guided tour of the area to learn about the unique geological formations and wildlife of the area, see some ancient Aboriginal paintings and listen to traditional stories about Uluru. You’ll have the option to explore the rock’s natural features including Kunyia Piti, and the striking Kantju Gorge, or stay in the cultural centre to learn more about one of the country’s most iconic natural attractions.
