Ayers Rock accommodation
Rising from the broad desert plain in the red centre of Australia, Ayers Rock is Australia's most recognisable natural icon and a World Heritage Site, accessible via a 40 minute flight from Alice Springs. Uluru is sacred to the Aṉangu, the Aboriginal people of the region.
Famous Ayers Rock is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory, standing 348 metres high with most of its bulk located below the earth’s surface. It is located 440 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The area around Ayers Rock is home to an abundance of springs, waterholes, ancient paintings and rock caves. Depending on the time of day, the position of the sun promotes spectacular colour changes, from shades of brilliant red, mauve, blues, pinks and brown – most notably at dawn and sunset.
Whether you see this monumental formation on foot around its 9.4 km circumference, astride a camel or via helicopter fly over, this sacred place will leave you with a lasting impression.
