Discover Mutitjulu Waterhole, a hidden gem at the base of Australia's most famous orange rock. Backed by a surreal silhouette of the massive, jutting rock, this unusually shaped thirst-quenching hotspot on the eastern side of Uluru is just one of the natural wonders you can see while hiking the outback trails of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Access the small viewing area from the boardwalk and observe how the calm, glass-like water surface reflects the iconic sandstone walls bathed in sunlight. Look for the prehistoric rock paintings, showcasing the significance of the site to the Aboriginal people.
