Soaring over Australia's Red Centre, Ayers Rock is an icon of the Outback.
Your relationship with Ayer’s Rock begins the moment you start planning your visit to Australia. Also called by its Aboriginal name, Uluru, this soaring ochre monolith features prominently on travel websites, postcards and virtually anywhere else with even the remotest connection to tourism in Australia. Ayer’s Rock rises out of the Red Centre with an almost spiritual grandeur. It’s an unforgettable sight – every bit as spectacular as the promotional materials make it out to be. As the Red Centre is extremely remote, plan on spending a few days near the base of Uluru for the complete Outback experience.
