When you think of Uluru you don’t immediately think about its adjacent township, Yulara, and that’s understandable. After all, there’s not much going on in this sleepy little desert town, except for the stunning Ayers Rock Resort, an Indigenous-owned enterprise with some truly luxe accommodation!

Yulara is located about a 10 minute drive from the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park entry station, ensuring that if you stay at the resort you aren’t ever too far from the marvellous national park and all its wonders.

These are the wonders that await you:

Uluru in the twilight hours

Uluru is simply spectacular at all times of day, but there is nothing quite like seeing in the hours before sunrise and sunset. It’s in the twilight hours that the giant monolith comes alive in one of nature’s most mesmerising natural lights shows, with all hues of gold, red, purple and pink engulfing the rock and turning it into a revolving canvas.

The Uluru Base Walk

Uluru is massive, and one can’t truly comprehend its magnitude until they actually arrive at the massive rock, gazing upon its 10km circumference. One of the best ways to get an idea of its size is by partaking in an Uluru Base Walk, which will take you all around the sensational landmark’s circumference.

Along the way, you will also get to see some of the incredible flora and fauna that inhabit the national park and live in the shadows of the monolith, including red kangaroos, dingoes, camels and more!

Kata Tjuta

To the uninitiated, the name Kata Tjuta might not strike one’s imagination. But to anyone that has visited the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park – or is planning to visit it – Kata Tjuta is an incredible landscape that truly complements this unforgettable journey into the heart of Australia.

Comprising a series of giant dome-like structures, Kata Tjuta looks more akin to what a rover would find on the Red Planet than even what you would see in the Red Centre, and this is why it is so awe-inspiring.

Kata Tjuta also consists of a series of stunning walks that traverse its cool valleys and take you to some pretty impressive vistas, providing you with one of the most remarkable natural landscapes you’re likely to find anywhere in the world…

The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is, without a doubt, one of the world’s most fantastic natural attractions – book yourself a room in Yulara and find out for yourself!
