The giant monolith has existed for many millions of years and has attracted quite a few visitors during that time; this includes the European explorer William Gosse who named the rock 'Ayers' after the premier of South Australia. In 1985, the Australian government returned ownership to the local Pitjantjatjara
Aborigines, and the traditional name Uluru came back in to use. Along with the equally impressive Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), this entire area is of deep cultural significance to the traditional owners, the Pitjantjatjara and Yankuntjatjara Aboriginal peoples, who refer to themselves as Anangu. A trip to Uluru is also about experiencing and understanding its cultural & spiritual significance. Tours of Uluru run by the Anangu are highly regarded as one of only a few windows into the laws and nature of this spiritually momentous place. During your holiday, be sure to pay a visit to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre to learn more about the spiritual significance of the region, the European history, the geology as well as plant and animal life.
Uluru has acquired its reputation not just because it is such a unique landform, but also because of the effect the sun has on its colours and appearance. Sunrises and sunsets are best viewed at a distance so you can appreciate changes to the rock's appearance; perhaps enjoy dinner or breakfast for these events. During your holiday you can also take in one of the many guided walks around Uluru offering views of a number of significant Anangu sites, Kantju Gorge and Mutitjulu waterhole.
Nearby Yulara is a resort town that was built specifically to cater to visitors coming to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta; and has effectively turned one of the world's least hospitable regions into an easy and comfortable place to visit. Your Uluru holiday won't have to be too rugged with the aid of an assortment of quality facilities, food and accommodation available in Yulara.
Though it is most commonly known to travellers as Ayers Rock, Australia's most recognisable landmark has long been a place of deep spiritual significance to the traditional Aboriginal owners.

No trip to this remarkable region of Australia would be complete without taking time to truly understand the importance of Uluru to the Aboriginal owners. With the help of DISCOVER WEST's Aboriginal Culture Package you can enjoy a holiday full of rich heritage and spiritual narrative and not have to worry about all the details as flights, central accommodation and other exciting bonuses are included for an affordable price.
