Uluru Guide

What are the best things to do in Uluru?

Uluru Base Walk

Take in Ayers Rock from every angle by completing the 10-kilometre Uluru Base Walk. The trail circles the base of the monolith and passes several landmarks, including Kantju Gorge, Kuniya Piti, Mutitjulu Waterhole, and various examples of rock art. Guided tours of the walk are available if you’re interested in learning the history behind Uluru and its significance to the Anangu people. It’s best to start the Uluru Base Walk early in the morning, particularly if you travel on flights to Uluru between October and March. Watch sunrise over the rock, then begin the hike straight after.

Kata Tjuta

Ayers Rock is the most famous landmark to see while holidaying on return flights to the Red Centre around Uluru, but it’s not the only sight to have on your itinerary. The national park is also home to Kata Tjuta, which is often referred to as the Olgas. Kata Tjuta features a series of domed rock formations in the same rust-red colour as Uluru. There are several Kata Tjuta hiking trails to explore while holidaying on cheap flights to Uluru, including the 7.4-kilometre Valley of the Winds walk and 2.6-kilometre Walpa Gorge walk. The domes of Kata Tjuta are always an impressive sight, but especially during sunrise and sunset when they take on a bright red glow.

Sounds of Silence

Book a spot at the Sounds of Silence dinner for a special evening while holidaying on flights to Uluru. The experience begins with sparkling wine and canapes as the sun sets over Uluru, then guests are treated to a three-course dinner. The meal showcases authentic flavours of the Outback with dishes like paprika-rubbed kangaroo and lamb and wattleseed sausages. A traditional didgeridoo performance and a guided narration about the Outback sky round out the evening.

When is the best time to visit Uluru?

There are two main seasons to plan around when booking tickets to Uluru. First is the hot, dry season, which lasts from October to March. Days are very hot and sunny, with temperatures regularly exceeding 35°C. Carry plenty of water and sunscreen with you if you book return flights to Uluru during this time. Also start hikes early – trails often close after 11am before temperatures reach their highest. You may also experience the occasional rainstorm during this season. The lightning of Outback storms looks very impressive, and the extra rain sometimes causes waterfalls to cascade down the sides of Uluru. October to March is the low season, so it’s the best time to book airfare to Uluru if you’re looking to avoid crowds and score a hotel bargain.

The cool season between April and September is the most popular time of year to book flights into Ayers Rock Airport (AYQ). Temperatures often fall between 20° and 25°C during the day and can dip to about 4°C at night. The cool weather and low chance of rain make this season perfect for hikes and long walks. Consider booking flights to Uluru for travel at the end of the cool season to see gorgeous wildflowers in bloom around the national park.

The only catch is that its high season. The crowds visiting Uluru skyrocket the prices for accommodation and flights. If you want to save money, try booking your trip a few months in advance.
