Best adventure tours in and around Uluru

Discover the heart of Australia and its surrounds with these hot Red Centre tours.

Uluru is known by many names, including Ayers Rock and the Red Centre. However you prefer to call it, it’s indisputably one of Australia’s most iconic natural landmarks. From sunrise to sunset this sacred Aboriginal site is a vision in ochre, shining out amongst the dry scrub of the Australian outback.

Once you’ve explored the rock formations of Uluru and its sister formation the Olgas (Kata Tjuta), you can head north to walk the rim of the incredible King’s Canyon. Or head further north to the Western MacDonnell Ranges and the historical township of Alice Springs and then across to the Eastern MacDonnell Ranges. The choice is yours, and it’s a big choice.
