Ayers Rock (Uluru): Ayers Rock, which is also known by its aboriginal name, Uluru, is a great red monolith rising 1000ft above the desert floor, and is one of Australia's most recognizable, and curious natural wonders. The huge sandstone rock formation is located in the southern part of central Australia 287 miles southwest of Alice Spring in the Kata Tjuta National Park which is administered by the Anangu tribe, and is an extremely sacred location for the aboriginal people of this area.
The Aborigines believe that Uluru is hollow below ground, and that there is an energy source that they call 'Tjukurpa' the 'Dreamtime'. The term Tjukurpa is also used to refer to the record of all activities of a particular ancestral being from the very beginning of his or her travels to their end, and the Anangu have requested that visitors refrain from climbing the rock to avoid interference with the traditional spirits that inhabit the area.
Uluru has many springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings. It is listed as a World Heritage Site, and is notable for appearing to change color as the different light strikes it at different times of the day and year. The sunset is a particularly remarkable sight when it briefly glows red. During the rainfall periods the rock acquires a silvery-grey color, with streaks of black algae forming on the areas that serve as channels for water flow.
Our recommended accommodations in Uluru are eco-sensitive and romantic, set in the wilderness of the Kata Tjuta National Park and feature beautifully appointed luxury tents on isolated sand dunes. There are also more traditional style hotels on gorgeous desert properties, with a wide range of facilities, views of and access to this magical destination. Uluru is a must see, if Southern Australia is part of your Australian Vacation.
