Here are my top 5 things to do at Uluru. This list is only a starter. There are so many things to do and see. I captured these images during my time living and working in the Red Centre:

TalinguruThis beautiful viewing area is not only a fantastic place to watch the sun rise over Uluru but a great place to view the desert landscape, Uluru and Kata Tjuta (in the distance) at any time of the day.

It is almost mandatory to view the sunset on Uluru when visiting the Red Centre! Each afternoon, hundreds of visitors flock to the sunset viewing areas to watch the colours of Uluru change. A special time of the day in the desert and well worth experiencing.

Kuniya-WalkLearn about the Anangu tjukurpa (belief) of Kuniya (woma python woman) and Liru (poisonous snake man) on this beautiful walk. Discover the peaceful and special Mutitjulu Waterhole at the very base of Uluru.

Kata-TjutaLocated 40 minutes drive west of Uluru is the incredibly stunning rock formation known as Kata Tjuta. A great place for sunrise, sunset or early morning walks.

Uluru-base-walkAnangu ask that you choose not to climb the rock. Take the time instead to explore the base of Uluru and discover the many caves and waterholes that exist in this incredible place.
