Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is home to one of Australia’s most recognizable icons, Uluru (previously known as Ayers Rock). This massive sandstone monolith stands 1,141 feet high (it is taller than the Eiffel Tower!) and 2.2 miles long. It would take you at least 3 hours to circle the base. What’s even more surprising is that the structure is even more massive beneath the ground!
It is the site of one the best sunsets in Australia you’ll ever see! Uluru is also considered by the native Aborigines as a sacred site which is why climbing Uluru was officially banned in late 2019.
There’s nothing like Ayers Rock in the world and it’s definitely worth a visit! Check out our upcoming Australia group tour!
