Uluru – Outstnanding Rock in the Australian Outback


Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is one of Australia’s most renowned sites. Conveniently located in the middle of the Australian hinterland, Uluru is located in Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park and is one of the largest rock formations in the world.

Ayers Rock is sacred to local natives living in the area, who lead tours of the area to inform many tourists visiting the place of their monuments.

Uluru is known to change colors at sunset and sunrise, and it’s a breathtaking view at dusk and dawn.

If you don’t want to drive through the Australian hinterland, the nearest airport to Uluru is Alice Spring, a 5-hour drive from Ayers Rockin.

Next to Ayers Rock you will find another famous monument called Olga (Kata Tjuta). Olga is a group of domed rock formations and is an impressive structure, which is unfortunately overshadowed by its famous brother Ayers Rock, but it is worth your visit if you are in the area.
