Uluru/Ayers Rock is a very special place and experience. We watched the sunset and had a splendid barbecue, then the following morning watched sunrise. A fee has to be paid to enter the national park, which is part of Aboriginal territory.

I loved looking at Kata Tjuta from the minibus and on foot. Its a special place especially at sunrise and in my opinion to a lesser extent at sunset. If people are expecting tourist type facilities then there are none except in the Ayres Rock...More

Every step in the red Centre is special. These rocks as they are called are amazing and nowhere else in the world. Take your time, soak up the atmosphere and flies and be awe inspired.

Impressive from a distance the domes of the Olga's are just as good as Uluru up close. We walked Walpa Gorge which is about a 10 km hike between several domes. The path is quite rough underfoot so have good footwear. Take water. We bearly...More

From the moment you see the wonder of nature until you leave you will be facinated. Try to see them at sunrise and sunset - check out the walks and just soak up the moment. One of the most amazing things I have ever seen.

A couple of days in Ayers Rock will give you an experience of nature. Take the long walk around Uluru, about 10,5 km, the first day. The walk will take about 3 hours with all the stops included. If you are sensitive to heat, the...More

In order to truly appreciate the wonder of Uluru and the Kata Tjuta, you should arrange as many hiking possibilities as possible to really see them close-up. While the sunrise and sunset of the Ayers Rock is well known, the sunset of the Olgas is...More

It has been 39 years since my last visit here and it is still fantastic. I know I should call it by the new name but I grew up knowing and calling it Ayres Rock so it means more to me than Uluru. The setup...More

This is the highlight of any trip to the Red Centre. Watching the sunset over both Uluru and the Olgas, and then walking the base of Uluru at sunrise was just stunning. You can walk most of the base in just over an hour and...More

You will be able to see base area of the Olgas and Uluru from a car but Kings canyon is mainly walking.. there is a fairly level area that is easy going and to do the full return walk on that one is about 45 minutes.. the... More

Hi Matt, Can you please add more details about Ayer's Rock climb. There is not much information about the climb on Internet, I guess because of all this “do not climb” campaign. I plan to climb in a month and really appreciate some extra info like: do you start and end from the same location (if not how far from the place you finish to the place you start the hike and the carpark); do you need/can cross the Rock along the top and how long it takes; how long descend takes; how busy the walking path is/how many people climbing; what time of the day you would recommend (given the time of the year-winter and your personal observations). Also what time of the day you recommend for Olga's hiking (in terms of best light conditions and amount of other tourists). Thanks a lot. P.S. To other park visitors and staff – these are the questions about the climb, not a start of the debate on whether it should be taken.

I really dont think so Yulara is a very small village that only caters for necessary shopping and gifts . You may try somewhere in Alice before you travel to Uluru.
