Uluru Holiday Packages
Uluru: more majestic than you ever imagined
Uluru is about 335km south-west of Alice Springs, and 463km by road. There is so much to experience in this vast expanse, one of the most imposing natural wonders on the planet. Set in a breath-taking landscape you'll see nowhere else on earth, this icon of Aboriginal culture and legend is perhaps the best place in Australia to come to an understanding of Indigenous beliefs and way of life. This is the Red Centre, the heart of Australia, and everyone should experience it at least once.
Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park is filled with walking trails, from easy to moderate, most of them wheelchair accessible. Being close to the land is the best way to discover the breath-taking natural beauty and rich culture of Uluru, as you walk to scenic viewpoints, rock art sites, waterholes, gorges and wildflower landscapes.
That iconic image you’ve seen of white tablecloths, full formal glassware and crockery, with the big red Rock looming up as the backdrop? You can put yourself in that picture! It’s called Sounds of Silence and it's four hours of Outback bliss.
