Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park:

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known as ‘Red Centre’ and one of the most striking natural landmarks and a major tourist attraction in Northern. Sometimes It’s called the heart of Australia. In Uluru Tours, as a visitor, you will add this park first on your travel plan. This park area covers 1,326 square kilometers and includes the features named after Uluru and 40 kilometers to its west, Kata Tjuta that is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is a protected area and home to both Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Uluru and Kata Tjuta have formed about 350 million years ago during the Alice Springs Orogeny where Uluru is known as Ayers Rock, a single massive rock formation,
and Kata Tjuta(it means “many heads” in local language) is known as “The Olgas”, a range of rock domes.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Entry Fees:

$25 – Adult pass valid for 3 consecutive days,

$32.50 – Adult annual pass,

$12.50 – Childs pass (5-15 years old) valid for 3 consecutive days,

$15 – Childs annual pass (5-15 years old),

$65 – Family pass valid for 3 consecutive days (2 adults and children).

Valley of The Winds:

Kata Tjuta (also known as The Olgas) has the amazing 36 domes. Between these domes, only two is walk allowed to some sections and Valley of the Wind is one of them. The silence can often seem to devocalize in this area, even in peak season and the sun bathes the rocky Olgas in a deep, reddish hue. It is located 45 minutes west of the viewing area at Uluru.

The Valley of the Winds walk is a 7.4-kilometer loop. This walk will take you between the domes and deep into Kata Tju?a within 3 hours. The walk follows a rocky creek bed and visitors will get several rest stops allowing you to catch your breath and take in the views. It is not an easy walk due to a couple of vertical ascents and descents and a few rocky patches. Though there are some steep inclines, it’s well worth the effort and the view that awaits you is breathtaking. When the temperature reaches 36°C or greater the National Park staff close the start of the walk from this point on for visitor’s safety.

Mutitjulu Waterhole:

Uluru has a great number of wonderful natural highlights. Among them, Mutitjulu Waterhole is one of the scenic wonders that it harbors which is located on Uluru road,Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia. It is a notably water-filled hole at the base of the rock. It’s not just a hole filled with water as it provides a thirst-quenching spot for animals and humans for many years, and is also home to almost 300 Aboriginal peoples.

Though the major inhabitants are Pitjantjatjara, there is also a fair few Yankunytjatjara, Luritja(also known as Kukatja), and Ngaanyatjarra(also known as Nana), who speak a collection of languages, including Pitjantjatjara, Luritja, and Yankunytjatjara.

Uluru Sunrise & Sunset:

Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) is world-famous for its eye-catching sunrises and sunsets. Sunset and Sunrise over Uluru- Kata Tjuta is an awesome experience for any visitors and it should be a ‘must-do’ on every visitor’s list. When the sunlight ray plays with the landscape, the rock formations change its color before the eyes. The sunrise and sunset viewing areas are located in such a way so that the sun’s rays hit the rock formations directly at that time of the day.

Walpa Gorge Walk:

Walpa Gorge means the refreshing winds that pass through the gorge where Walpa means windy. It is located with few places in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park where you can see wallabies (Australasian marsupial that is similar to, but smaller than, a kangaroo) hopping around the domes. This surface is a desert anchor for plants and animals guarded against the hot desert sun and they find relief in this area. It’s a V-shaped Grand Canyon, with huge red rocks on both sides of the canyon.

Walpa Gorge Walk is like the entrance to an ancient temple crafted by nature. Uluru’s this walking site is popular with hikers, searching for unusual rock formations, exploring ancient history, exploring vibrant plants in the canyon against the blue sky, white clouds, and green tree-red soil, along with the canyons of the two tallest peaks of the Catatacoda. And of course make sure you take lots of drinking water, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a hat.

It’s a part of the Kata Tjuta area, a sacred men’s site. Local people always show respect when visiting this special place. They walk quietly behaved politely and not swim in the waterholes. Till now It is the same and also the same for you. Be polite and show respect to this sacred place.

Uluru Segway Tours:

Tourists can explore Uluru in a different way like “Uluru by Segway”. Uluru by Segway was one of the best experiences in my Uluru tours. Despite walking the base of Uluru you can cruise it in style on a Segway. We think that the best way to experiencing Uluru is on Segway. Viewing the entire base of scenic Uluru on a Segway is fantastic. It will help you to easily cruise the full base of Uluru, in less time than walking. Even you can travel faster on Segway than the flies.

Beginners can feel safe, comfortable and fun as this tour guide group will provide all Segway instructions and pieces of equipment. Small-group tour ensures you personalized attention from your guide, they will pick-up and drop-off from the Ayers Rock Resort for the ultimate convenience and also get narrations from the tour guide on history and geology of Uluru.

Uluru Camel Tours:

A great way to explore the Central Australian desert is from the back of a camel. When you’re in the Red Centre, the heart of Australia, you must visit this beautiful desert region. Multi-award-winning Uluru Camel Tours is an owner-operated tour business based in the Red Centre. It is located in 10 Kali Circuit, Yulara NT 0872, Voyages Ayers Rock Resort which is the largest Camel farm in the Southern Hemisphere showcasing 25 years of passion for all things camel, home to 60 beautiful camels. The Voyages Ayers Rock Resort farm is open year-round for tourists to have a short ride and explore camel museum and saddlery.

Uluru Camel Tours is a really brilliant and fantastic experience in Uluru tours. This way of Uluru tours is especially for viewing magical sunrise and sunset. The views at sunrise or sunset are wonderful and the staff and handlers are very skilled, knowing and friendly. An expert cameleer who shares knowledge with tourists about the desert’s wildlife and ecology along the way. The camels are gentle & patient. We highly recommend this tour to the folk of all ages.

Getting Around Uluru:

If you want to explore the base of Uluru, you can drive, cycling, hop on a Segway or on foot. There are no taxis at Uluru. Because of sealed roads, driving around the park in a normal 2WD vehicle is easy. The easiest and cheapest way to get around Uluru only for two people is in a rental car. A 4WD is unnecessary for paved roads.

Ayers Rock Resort offers a free shuttle bus to take visitors between their accommodation and the town square in Yulara. It runs a free shuttle every 20 minutes or so around the resort complex from10:30 am to after midnight. You can also rent one vehicle at the airport to get around Uluru.

Uluru Express:

Uluru Express is a transportation service in Yulara, Australia, without a tour guide. This service system offers basic transport in Uluru Tours to various sites around both Uluru and Kata Tjuta without the assistance of a guide during the walks. They provide some basic information about where to go and how long the walks take, but once they drop you off, you are on your own. Generally, they are much cheaper than the alternative options, especially if you get a 2-day or 3-day pass. They set times for departures and returns and it’s not very flexible. If you want to take time in your visiting spot then it won’t be a perfect transport system. As you will see the sunrise or sunset but not with enjoyment. They maintain their time schedule.

Conclusion:

Finally, I say, Travel carefully. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for having us. Have a nice trip.
