Yulara Ayers Rock

One of Australia's most famous Outback destinations.

About Yulara Ayers Rock

It is 18 km by road from world heritage site Uluru (Ayers Rock), a large rock formation, and 55 km from Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), a group of large dome shaped rock formations.  Uluru and Kata Tjuta form the two major landmarks within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, a World Heritage Site.  

Uluru is one of Australia's most recognisable natural landmarks. The area around the formation is home to an abundance of springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings. Both Uluru and the nearby Kata Tjuta formation have great cultural significance for the Aṉangu people, the traditional inhabitants of the area, who lead walking tours to inform visitors about the local flora and fauna, bush foods and the Aboriginal dreamtime stories of the area.

Visitors can learn about bush tucker and bush skills, participate in dot painting workshops and visit aborigional art sites.
