Yulara — 4 nights

Yulara takes its name from the local Aboriginal words for "howling" and "dingoes," which conveys the town's isolated location in the Outback.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Uluru Audio Guide and Walpa Gorge. Go for a jaunt from Yulara to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to see Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga about 44 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, surround yourself with nature on Uluru Camel Tours, and take in the pleasant sights at Mala Walk.

For reviews, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Yulara online route planner.

Geologic Formations · Wildlife Areas · Mountains
A dusty, arid land of canyons, cliffs, and mountains, the Red Center’s rock monoliths and rich colors make it one of the most evocative locations in Australia. Most notable as the home of Alice Springs and Ayers Rock, Red Center also has a strong connection with the Aboriginal community and indigenous culture.
