The Basics

Uluru is the highlight of Australia’s Red Centre, whether you embark on a sunrise base walk, discover the Aboriginal heritage of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, or dig into an Aussie-style barbecue at sunset. Most tours depart from Ayers Rock, Yulara, or Alice Springs and include nearby sights such as The Olgas (Kata Tjuta), Kings Canyon, or Lake Amadeus. Get an adrenaline fix on a Segway tour of Mutitjulu Waterhole and Kantju Gorge; a helicopter flight over the park; a desert camel ride; or a skydive over Ayers Rock.

A lovely tour, the Rock was stunning at Sunset! A shame we had some cloud cover on the night so didn’t get to see a lot of the stars but the commentary was great. Lovely staff :)

Uluru (Ayers Rock) Sunset with Outback Barbecue Dinner and Star Tour
Most memorable was the sunset. The staff were fantastic. Very polite and attended to our every request. We would have liked clear information of the event on purchase or in the actual advertisment. Even the photo did not depict the experience. No white table cloths and long table seating is not what we expected. Spoilt my experience. Thought it would be more intimate.

Overnight Uluru (Ayers Rock) Small-Group Camping Tour
What can I say an absolute fantastic experience!! Alex our tour driver/guide/chef was a mindful of knowledge, energy and has a wonderful zest for life. The tour itself is fulfilling and full of new experiences like sleeping under the stars in a swag bag for instance. Have fun and definitely have trainers as a minimum of footwear for all the walking.

The tour was great but the lack of timely information on timing and events was a definite issue that we had to fix with phone calls

Overnight Uluru (Ayers Rock) Small-Group Camping Tour
We were so ready for this Camping Tour. Ayers Rock was amazing to explore. Sleeping under the stars by the fire was a new experience. This is what holiday is about. I call it a "Check " on my bucket list. And Sarah was a brilliant guide :-D

Uluru (Ayers Rock) Sunset with Outback Barbecue Dinner and Star Tour
The star gazing tour post dinner! Oh, and the first moment we arrived at dinner - I’d not yet been that close to Uluru before and it was utter MAGIC! Also - Connor who picked us up from the camp ground was wonderfully attentive. He spotted I was a solo traveller amongst couples and so took the time to chat through a bunch of history with me. It was very appreciated!

Uluru (Ayers Rock) Sunset Tour
Very well organised. Jack our coach captain was exceptional. The drinks served by a great and handsome bar tender and the Sunset on the Rock was spectacular. The nibbles and the drinks were very generous👍😃❤️

When to Get There

Uluru is open year-round, but visit May through September for cooler weather that’s better suited for hiking and sightseeing tours. In summer (December to March) with temperatures of 100°F (38°C), it’s best to plan activities before 11am to avoid midday sun. Try to visit at sunrise or sunset, when the changing light casts colorful hues over the rock.

What is Uluru?

A solid mass measuring 2.5 miles (3.6 kilometers) long and (1,141 feet) 348 meters tall, Uluru is a one-of-a-kind geological feature formed more than 900 million years ago. The visible rock—an estimated four million tons of arkose sandstone—may only be a third of the entire mass. The important Aboriginal site is protected by its traditional owners, the Anangu people.
