Watch as the sun sets over our Red Centre landscape, hear the echo of the beginning of time, Tjukurpa (law) whispering the connections between people, plants, animals and the land.

Uluru is so much more than a rock. It’s a living place.
Rising out of the surrounding Central Australian desert, Uluru and Kata Tjuta dominate the landscape. The spectacular red rocks and domes are millions upon millions of years old.
You’ll find Uluru and Kata Tjuta about 450 kilometres, or a four and a half hour drive from Alice Springs, the nearest major town.
Though in a remote desert, a nearby town Yulara has been built to provide accommodation, restaurants, a supermarket, petrol and other essential services.
