Located in the heart of Australia’s vast outback, the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is Australia’s most iconic destination. Rising from the arid scrub land of the Simpson Desert, the monumental red rock faces of Uluru, known for decades in English as Ayres Rock, are an unforgettable sight. While Uluru was unknown to westerners until the 1880s, it has for 20000 years been a site of spiritual significance for the Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara Aboriginal peoples. Today, ‘the Rock’ attracts upwards of 400000 visitors per year but other areas of the national park remain true hidden gems. Indeed, the magical blood red rock formations of Kata Tjuta are taller and more undulating than their famous neighbor but attract a fraction of the attention.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Center tells the story of the rich and vibrant culture, tradition, and history of the Pitjantjatjara people. Not far away at Uluru is the Mala Walk that leads across the face of a rock to see the Anangu rock art.
Kata Tjuta is popular for its wealth of fascinating rock formations. The rocky trail leads to a serene grove of spear wood trees which form a cool shade that is especially romantic. Ensure that you bring your loved one along on this tour.
Not only is the Uluru Tandem Skydive an awesome experience but you’ll also be treated to nice views of Uluru beneath you as you float in the air. The exhilarating feeling of descending to the earth from the sky is also one that you do not want to miss.
