Uluru is an estimated 600 million years old and once sat at the bottom of an ancient seabed. It towers over the desert landscape at 348 metres above sea level and has the rare status of holding two UNESCO World Heritage listings – geologically and culturally, thanks to the significance it holds for local First Nations Australians.
Uluru is part of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, with Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) also worthy of your attention. While some travellers, especially those driving down from Alice Springs, may only spend a day at Uluru, we recommend allowing 2-3 days to experience the region’s full glory.
