A trip to Australia wouldn’t have been complete without a visit to Uluru (Ayres Rock).
We visited for 4 days and were able to see the Field of Light art installation, walk through Kata Tjuta and take a segway tour around the base of the rock.
We had a wonderful time, despite the fact that Anna was really sick. It was really interesting to learn a bit about the history of the area. Also the Segway made light work of the 10km trip around the base of the rock. The guide was very knowledgeable and happy to chat. We recommend this trip should you ever be in the area.
Uluru is a very famous and recognisable Australian tourist attraction. It is a giant sandstone rock located in the Northern Territory. Anangu are the traditional owners of Uluru-Kata Tjuta and the surrounding land. The area is of great cultural significance. There are many opportunities to learn more about the history when visiting Ayres Rock Resort.
All accommodation and tours are operated by Voyages Indigenous Tourism. For more information, visit their website https://www.ayersrockresort.com.au
There are other ways to explore the rock if you don’t want to take a Segway tour. Some people walk or cycle the base. The rock is also said to change colour based on the position of the sun. There are viewing points within the national park that are set up to maximise the experience of seeing the sun rise or set over the rock. There are also bus tours that will help those without a car enjoy these experiences.
