There are many ways to experience Aboriginal culture, and different traditions, all around the Territory. But one place above all casts a magic spell. Rising abruptly out of the red sand and spinifex, Uluru/ Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) dominate the surrounding landscape. They are national icons that fascinate and inspire people from around the world.
Stories of the Anangu people
This World Heritage Listed region holds deep spiritual significance for the traditional owners, the Anangu people.
Anangu guides lead walking tours around the base of Uluru, sharing stories, bush food and discussing the symbolism of rock art sites. These walks provide a rare insight into how Anangu people have lived, and continue to live, in this arid environment.
A dot painting workshop with local Aboriginal artists provides a rare insight into this thriving industry that is capturing the world.
Sunrise and sunset are the best time to experience this magnificent monolith’s full glory. And doing so on board a camel provides the best seat in the house.
Feel the freedom and exhilaration of riding through the National Park on a Harley Davidson or take scenic plane or helicopter flight for a breathtaking bird’s eye view.
Dine under the stars
No visit to Uluru would be complete without experiencing dinner under a canopy of stars, while a storyteller shares the tales of the desert night sky.
Accommodation ranges from a luxurious wilderness camp in an intimate setting to a choice of five star hotel, modern apartments, contemporary 3½ star hotel, outback hostel and campground.
