Where is Uluru?
As one of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, Uluru’s location right in the centre of the country is fitting. Specifically, Uluru is in the heart of quintessentially ‘Aussie outback’ landscape in the southwest corner of the Northern Territory. It actually sits within the 330,000-acre Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, which was set up to protect the sacred rock and adjacent natural assets.
There’s no accomodation or services for tourists within the park, but Ayers Rock Resort sits right outside the park border. The most popular town to access Uluru is Alice Springs, which is about a five to six hour drive away. To get from Alice Springs to Uluru you can take buses, drive yourself, or fly directly from the Alice Springs airport to the Ayers Rock Connellan Airport.
Other must-see Australian landmarks near Uluru are Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Kings Canyon and Mount Conner. Don’t let Uluru’s location in the heart of the desert scare you off, it’s well worth the visit.

Rising nearly 350 meters above the desert plain, 863 meters above sea level, and measuring 9.4km in circumference, Uluru is a seriously impressive sight to see.
