Uluru Kata Tjuta

World Heritage-listed and one of Australia’s most iconic symbols, Uluru is approximately 460 kilometres or a six-hour drive southwest of Alice Springs. Right in the heart of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Uluru is a place that speaks of timeless folklore, rich indigenous culture and great spirituality.

Traditional custodians of Uluru, the Anangu, believe this landscape was created by their ancestors at the beginning of time, and have been protecting these sacred lands ever since. 

The mysterious 500 million-year-old rock formations of nearby Kata-Tjuta, the Aboriginal name meaning ‘many heads’ is also located in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
