Ayers Rock or Uluru, is an imposing sandstone monolith in the centre of Red Centre desert in Australia’s Northern Territory. The famous tourist attraction is found, 450 kilometres from Alice Springs. It’s revered by indigenous Australians and thought to have been around for 700 million years. The ancient monolith is inside Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, which is also home to the 36 red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta formation, aka. “The Olgas”.
Uluru (Ayers Rock) has many holiday parks listed with Campstay and is a popular destination for watching sunsets, walking around Uluru's base, camel tours, and scenic flights.
Uluru (Ayers Rock) is considered as an inselberg, which literally means ""island mountain"". The giant rock is a lone remnant of the original mountain range, post erosion. The unique feature of Ayers Rock is its homogeneity; it lacks parting and jointing at its bedding surfaces. This results to lack of soil and scree slopes. These features actually helped the rock avoid erosion.
There are several ways to discover the beauty of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and its surrounding desert landscape. Hike with an Aboriginal guide and learn about age-old traditions and hear stories from Dreamtime. Charter a helicopter or ride a hot air balloon to see the landscape from the sky. Ride across the fawn coloured desert on the back of a camel or a Harley Davidson motorcycle.
