Uluru being one of the 7 natural wonders of the world is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Australia. Located in the heart of Australia, Uluru, otherwise knows as Ayers Rock, attracts people all around the world, even under extreme weather conditions.
#1 Situated in the dry Australian desert, water is extremely vital. It is advised to drink at least 1 litre of water an hour. Sugared cordial is also suggested as sugar and salt help the body absorb more water.
#2 Respect the indigenous people. Many indigenous people do not like to be photographed due to their beliefs that photographs capture not only their faces but their soul.
#3 It is a popular activity to climb Uluru. However it is not advisable due to cultural, environmental and safety reasons. Not only does climbing the rock lead to permanent environmental damage on the landscape, it is also disrespectful to the traditional owners as Uluru is a sacred site to them. It is also dangerous as the rock is very steep and slippery. Take the alternate route around the rock instead.
#4 There are many areas of the rock that are considered sacred and photography is not allowed. Nevertheless, recharge your camera as there are many other beautiful photographic sites.
With that in mind, why not go on a journey to Central Australia and experience the beauty personally? Add this on to your bucket list today!
