Sunset Tour At Uluru
Book Tours Online with TravelOnline

Also known as Ayers Rock, Uluru is the largest monolith in Australia. Located in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park of the Northern Territory, Uluru is considered sacred to the local Aboriginal People, the Pitjantjatjara Anangu. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Uluru/Ayers Rock has had a somewhat controversial history, despite its status as an Australian national icon. For decades the local people have lamented the Uluru tours guiding visitors up and onto the rock. Considering the sacred nature of the formation, this is very much believed to be an act of sacrilege. Today, visitors are expected to enjoy the site from below. In the eighties, Ayers Rock was handed back the traditional owners of the region (on the condition that it would be leased back to the National Parks for 99 years). A decade later, the original name of Uluru was returned to the rock and national region.

Uluru tours from Sydney and Melbourne depart frequently, flying people to Alice Springs for fully accommodated tours of the rock and region. Uluru day tours often try to cater for sunset or sunrise viewings, a time where the rock is blazing red and fiercely majestic. Tours also include significant time in the surrounding parks, allowing visitors a substantial outback experience. Tours will often include a visit to local camel farms, the Lost City, the Garden of Eden, the West MacDonnell Ranges and Palm Valley. Some tours include the option of outback camping, offering unique access the sensational Kings Canyon at dawn. This experience also presents travellers with the opportunity to encounter local wildlife at dusk.

Visit Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Walpa Gorge, Matitjulu and the Valley of the Winds on an accommodated tour that offers a comfortable, outback resort style sleep. This is a great option for visitors seeking style and ease from their Ayers Rock adventure.
