Uluru & Surrounds

Map showing the Uluru and Surrounds region in the Northern Territory

Considered the spiritual heart of Australia, this region's gem is Uluru/Ayers Rock, but it also offers visitors so much more, and is only a few hours from Sydney.

Get ready to be blown away by World Heritage-listed natural wonders, iconic wildlife and the red dirt of the Australian Outback. The Uluru region is home to two of Australia's most famous rock formations, a mighty canyon and an ancient indigenous culture rich in story, dance and art.

We've shown you water running down the sides of #Uluru, but today we're taking it to a whole new level with waterfalls at #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas)! One of our local tour guides, @garystevensyn1, has been waiting 18 months to capture this incredible sight at Walpa Gorge and finally got to experience it recently 😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Gary! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

G'day from the spiritual heart of @Australia 👋 As far as views go, #Uluru at sunset is pretty hard to beat, hey @j.a.y_daley! If you're visiting this Red Centre icon, we highly recommend heading out to one of the viewing platforms to watch sunrise and sunset - the colours are different everyday 😍 There's also plenty of activities to fill the daytime hours... you can hire a bike and cycle around the base of the rock with @outbackcycling, hop on a camel ride with @ulurucameltours, enjoy a scenic flight with @professional_helicopters, join a dot painting workshop with @marukuarts or head out on a guided tour with @seitoutbackaustralia 👍 The list is endless... Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Jay! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Fine dining under a star-tling outback sky with views of #Uluru and #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas)? ✨ Um, yes please! Tali Wiru, meaning 'beautiful dune' in local Anangu language, is an open-air restaurant that combines a world-class menu with a one-of-a-kind natural setting. When can you have this magical experience, you ask? It starts again next month and runs until October 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jeffcolhoun. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #ExploreUluru

#KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) is one of those special places that looks different from every angle! The surrounding landscape is looking greener than usual thanks to recent rainfall, making it the perfect time to hop on a scenic flight and check it out from the air 🚁 A birds eye view is one of the best ways to appreciate the sheer size of these ancient domes, spread over an area of more than 20km and located approximately 30km from #Uluru. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @scienoakes! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

"It's not everyday that you see #Uluru turn into a purple monolith covered in torrential waterfalls!" 😍 How's that for timing, @milesuncharted! Depending on the weather and time of day, this iconic monolith is known to change colour, particularly at sunrise and sunset. If you happen to be visiting when it rains, keep an eye out for the waterfalls running down the sides! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Miles. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT #ExploreUluru

It's official... we've found the ultimate place to wake up 🙏 Nestled atop rust-red dunes, @longitude131 overlooks @Australia's best-known natural icon, #Uluru.

When you're trying to take a picture and someone decides to #photobomb 😂 Gently coasting along the sand dunes at #sunrise some ten feet off the ground you'll not only have an unforgettable view of #Uluru and #KataTjuta, but you'll also get to know these friendly characters! Connor, Ned Kelly and Lazy Dazy are just some of the local camels waiting to welcome you on a sunrise, daytime or sunset ride at @UluruCamelTours. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mitch.cox! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT
