Spend a few nights sleeping under the stars in comfort.

In the middle of the Australian outback in the Northern Territory sits a massive red sandstone rock, known as Uluru. If you’re looking to go glamping in Uluru, you’re in luck, because yes you can!

Though you can’t actually stay within the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, you can stay just outside of the national park. There are plenty of places where you can enjoy somewhere to stay to glamp.

What is glamping?

Glamping is just a fancier and more luxurious way of your typical camping. Glamping is for those who still want to experience the outback areas, but not necessarily in your typical tent that you set up.

While glamping typically means you stay in luxury safari tents or cabins that have an actual bed for you to be comfortable to sleep on.

Things to see in and around Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park

While you spend a night or a couple of nights glamping, here are the things you can see in the national park.


Without a doubt, you’ll be visiting here to see the giant red sandstone rock itself! Uluru is truly magnificent to see, especially around sunset and sunrise!

One thing we recommend doing is the Uluru base walk. This walk takes you around Uluru, which is about a four-hour walk. Ensure you start this walk early and finish before 11 AM when it gets too hot.

Kata Tjuta
Kata Tjuta is of course another major attraction to see in the national park along with Uluru. Kata Tjuta is 36 large red domes, with some as tall as 546 metres high. You can watch the sunrise and sunset with views of Kata Tjuta for something more magical.

The most common and best walk to do is the Valley of the Winds walk which can take around three to four hours to complete.

Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre
The Cultural Centre is a place where you can learn about the Anangu culture, who are the traditional owners of the land. The centre includes displays, art galleries, and community-owned shops.

Kings Canyon
Kings Canyon has red canyon walls and is worth visiting while you’re in the Red Centre. The best way to see Kings Canyon is the Rim Walk which can take you around three to four hours. If you plan to do this walk, do it earlier in the morning to avoid the hottest part of the day. Or there is the hour long Kings Creek Walk.

Things worth seeing in Kings Canyon include the Garden of Eden where there are 60 rare plants and the weathered sandstone domes.

It would be best to make this stop when you’re on your way or coming from Alice Springs as it’s a three-hour drive from Uluru.
