Destination Name: Uluru/Kata Tjuta Region
Names like Uluru/Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta/The Olgas are synonymous with Australia’s iconic interior. Situated 462 kilometres south west of Alice Springs, these geological wonders are visited by thousands of visitors every year. Sunrise and sunset shed a myriad of different lights on these intimidating formations (Uluru/Ayers Rock is a monolith, Kata Tjuta/The Olgas an unusual collection of massive domes). A viewing at either of these times is invariably described as ‘spiritual’, ‘majestic’ and ‘unforgettable’.
Yulara is the settlement that has sprung up to service tourists to the area. It is home to Ayers Rock Resort and a domestic airport for flights from most Australian capital cities.
