The great monolith of the Red Centre, Ulur
u / Ayers Rock stands a whopping 348 metres above ground and reaches twice that below, revealing only part of its undulating beauty. For the local Aboriginal people, the Anangu, the World Heritage listed Ulur
a National Park holds a special cultural significance. Join an Ulur

There’s plenty to do at the base of Ayers Rock. Flat desert plains highlight the overwhelming size of Ulur

u Cultural Centre.
