ULURU (AYERS ROCK)
Petit Futé's opinion on ULURU (AYERS ROCK)
Uluru (Ayers Rock) remains the largest sacred site for the Aborigines, more specifically for the Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara. Rituals still take place at its base and there are some places around the rock where it is forbidden to take pictures. The Anangu Aboriginal people fought to recover this rock, which was returned to them in 1985. It is important to consider its true sanctity when you visit. The ascent of Uluru has been definitively closed since 26 October 2019
and is part of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, a UNESCO World HeritageSite.
This name was adopted at the request of the Aboriginal people when the site was returned to them. Kata Tjuta is a rocky complex located 25 kilometers from Uluru.
For undoubtedly great photos and more intense colors, admire Uluru at sunrise or sunset. You will be treated to a firework display of orange and fiery red shades. The shades change according to the sun. In the absence of sunshine and in periods of rain (rare in this semi-arid region), the rock turns a silvery grey colour and can then be adorned with a cloud on its roof. We also invite you to walk around it, which will take you between 3 and 4 hours. You will then be able to admire an exceptional fauna and flora.
The vast majority of visitors spend only one day in Uluru (Ayers Rock), but it is recommended to spend at least three days there to enjoy it and immerse yourself in the sacred history of the site. You will then have the opportunity to take a picture of the rock from all angles and all the lights. The only accommodation is the Ayers Rock Resort and the Uluru site remains accessible by plane as it has an airport.
