Located in the dry Central Australian desert, you would not imagine Uluru to be such a bustling centre for tourism. Yet, it is. And this breathtaking marvel of nature is definitely one worth a visit!

With an absolute plethora of bushwalk trails, spectacular scenery, heritage and culture, and the inescapable wildlife, you will find yourself immersed in the superb atmosphere of the place. The two rock formations - one a massive monolith, and the other a collection of huge dome shaped rocks - have plenty of beauty on offer. And in the same breath one just has to advise you to witness the sunrise and sunset over the rocks. View the region atop a camel, or better yet from the skies! Rent an airplane or a helicopter, all for you to absorb the fantastic panoramic views of the Australian desert, with the imposing rocks making a hefty appearance. For the more 'hands on' individuals, you will be totally blown away by the variety of bushwalks on offer, each highlighting a different aspect and story from the aboriginal Anangu culture.

History of Uluru - Kata Tjuta

Uluru was named so by the aboriginal people who have lived in the region for thousands of years. To them, the local Anangu people, the rock is sacred. It was in 1873 that William Gose found the landmark and gave it the name Ayers Rock, in honour of Sir Henry Ayers, the Chief Secy of Southern Australia at the time. Tourism in the region boomed around the 1940s. The European settlers also took it upon themselves to imporve the tourism and welfare of the place. Finally in 1993, a dual naming policy was adopted where both the names were declared official (Uluru / Ayers Rock).
