As the weather is slowly improving but has not gotten too hot just yet, it is the perfect timing to go and see that huge, cool, red rock in the middle of the desert! See us at reception if you would like to book any tours for Uluru and/or Kata Tjuta. We have everything from day trips (if you are already booked in somewhere in Yulara) to tours that take you for several days and originate in Alice Springs or even longer tours taking you from Adelaide to Alice Springs via Uluru. Both Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) offer great scenery and awesome hikes so it is great to go when the weather is not too hot…The Valley of the Winds hike at Kata Tjuta is amazing, there are apparently flowers in the desert
The color contrasts are outstanding, the blue skies, the red dirt, the greenery on that backdrop… *dreamy*
Of course you need to see Uluru at sunset.
Finally a snap from the Mala Walk… there is also the option of renting bikes and riding around the base of Uluru! A great way to explore and get some exercise
If you prefer to do it on your own, you can fly with Jetstar to Ayers Rock Airport and rent a car at the airport, that way you can make your own itinerary choose freely which hikes you would like to do and at what pace. Just remember that NT requires an international drivers license (a lot of the other states do no so this is definitely different) and also it is forbidden to drive between dusk till dawn. Ayers Rock Resort offers various types of accommodation in Yulara, ranging from a campground where you can put up your tent to a 5 star hotel so there is something for any budget!
