General Information on Uluru/Ayers Rock

Uluru also known as Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory. Kata Tjuta and Uluru are the two major features of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Since the park was listed as a World Heritage Site, annual visitor numbers rose to over 400,000. Increased tourism provides regional and national economic benefits. Uluru is sacred to the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to a plethora of springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings.

Learn about Uluru's cultural significance as you walk around its base with an Aboriginal Anangu guide. Get up close to the grandeur of nearby Kata Tjuta – sacred russet domes formed through years of erosion – on the Valley of the Winds Walk. In Watarrka National Park, you can trek to the rim of Kings Canyon and swim in a waterhole in the lush valley of the Garden of Eden. Walk to Kathleen Springs, drive the Mereenie Loop or soar over the canyon on a helicopter.
