14 Top Tips for Ayres Rock


  • Book your tours well in advance as they can get booked up really quickly.

  • It sounds obvious but drink lots of water while you’re out walking. The temperatures can be extreme! You won’t realise how much you’ll be sweating during the day. They recommend about 1 litre every hour.

  • Don’t take anything from the National Park, this includes stones, flowers, leaves etc – it will cost you $1,000 if you get caught.

  • There are lots of free activities you can take advantage off - Indigenous performances, art markets, bush yarns etc.

  • Walk the base, its a nice easy walk which takes about 3.5 hours.

  • Have dinner under the stars at "Sounds of Silence"


  • Wifi is best on the buses - its not to good throughout the rest of the resort!

  • On the walks always wear a cap and a high factor sunscreen

  • If flies bother you, take a fly net to wear over your face.


  • Post your photos on Instagram and use the tag #ExploreUluru

  • Respect your surrounding and don’t drop litter!

  • Take sensible shoes!


  • Stick to the designed pathways in the National Park.

  • If you can afford to do a helicopter flight its well worth it – it’s a once in a lifetime experience.

  • Don't miss the sunsets!
