At the centre of Australia is quite possibly the most famous rock in the world. Standing at 348m high, this sandstone landmark has great cultural significance to indigenous Australians.
This UNESCO listed world heritage site is just as spectacular from afar, as it is from the base site. With many Aboriginal sacred sites around the rock and cave formations, Uluru is majestic, rich in ancient culture as well as peaceful and mystifying.
When touring Uluru
you can take a 10 km walk around the base and view it from a distance at both sunset or sunrise.
Visitors are asked not to climb the rock by the Traditional Indigenous owners of Uluru, out of respect and by authorities for safety reasons. The steep climb has resulted in at least 35 documented deaths.
The base walk itself is mystifying with grandiose rock formations, caves, Aboriginal art works, sacred sites and rich culture. Take the time to walk around the rock and soak up the serene atmosphere.
