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.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known for nature, museums, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Uluru, take in the awesome beauty at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga, stroll through Kuniya Walk, and appreciate the views at Valley of the Winds.

For photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park trip planner.

Sydney to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) early enough to travel to Alice Springs.
