Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to trek up Uluru.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Family-friendly places like Uluru and Mutitjulu Waterhole will thrill your kids. Step out of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to go to Alice Springs and see Curtin Springs, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga, shop like a local with Walkatjara Art Uluru, take in the dramatic natural features at Walpa Gorge, and admire the verdant scenery at Valley of the Winds.

For ratings, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park itinerary maker site.

Sydney to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 0.5 hours traveling from Sydney to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park due to the time zone difference.

You'll set off for Batchelor on the 16th (Fri).
