Rising from seemingly nowhere in the deep centre of Australia, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is one of the world’s great natural wonders!

Uluru is an inselberg, literally “island mountain”, an isolated remnant left after the slow erosion of an original mountain range. The caves in Uluru can be both engaging and enlightening. To truly experience the power of Ayers Rock, your journey should be more than a few hours. Take your time to absorb the history of the springs, caves, and ancient paintings throughout the formation and don’t worry about running your business. The first Aboriginal settlers arrived there more than 10,000 years ago and created a historical journey that would be difficult to transverse overnight so the recommendation for any tourists traveling to the formation has always been to allow more time to absorb the area without being distracted.
