Where is Uluru?

Where is Uluru?Where is Uluru? The world famous monolith known as Uluru is located in the southwestern corner of Australia’s Northern Territory.

Geographically speaking, it is close to the centre of Australia and is best accessed from the town of Alice Springs. For those who are curious as to where Uluru is exactly, it lies right in the centre of Uluru National Park, just east of Kata Tjuta.

Where is Uluru National Park?

Uluru National Park was set up to protect the great sandstone monolith, and although there is no accommodation or services within the park for tourists, there is an Aboriginal settlement in here. It is just to the east of Uluru, while the tourist-centric town of Yulara is 20kms to the north, just outside the park boundary.

Buses run to Uluru from Alice Springs regularly, but those thinking of driving should be aware that it’s a good five hours one-way. Where is Uluru from Alice Springs? Simply head south for 200kms along the Darwin-Adelaide Stuart Highway and then take a right onto the Lasseter Highway for 245kms until reaching Yulara. The rock is due south of here, about 20kms.

Those who drive in will need to pay a A$25 entrance fee for the national park, which lasts for three days. Visitors are then free to park up near Uluru and climb it if they wish. Allow two or three hours for the return climb and about the same to encircle the rock. Tourists who also plan on doing Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), will find they are 35kms west of where Uluru is. Allow a couple of hours here also.

Tourists can also get to Uluru by flying, as the Ayers Rock Connellan Airport is just a few kilometres to the north of Yulara, with regular flights running from Alice Springs.
