There is a plethora of places to pick up an Ayers Rock map; simply head to any large tourist information office in Australia. Visitors can also pick one up in Yulara, the service town for Ayers Rock, or at Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park and the Culture Centre.
Hotels in Alice Springs and Yulara also usually have free Ayers Rock maps, or visitors can use Google maps and view the rock online in detail. With the latter, surfers can zoom right into the satellite view image and print out a map of Ayers Rock.
In addition, several websites also offer free PDF downloads with descriptions of the rock and The Olgas.
The online Ayers Rock maps are typically interactive, allowing viewers to zoom in and out and pick either a road map or satellite view. The satellite view even zooms in close enough to see the small metal can on the summit – the trig point.
The various parking/viewing spots, as well as the Culture Centre to the south, can also be seen clearly.
The Australian government also has a good website with detailed maps of Ayers Rock, including all the details outlined above. Those who don’t have access to a computer during their travels can simply ask their hotel for a map, while those on organised tours should them for free from the guide.
Perhaps the best place to pick up an Ayers Rock map is at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, located just beneath the southern flank of the rock.
As well as helping out the Aboriginals, tourists can also learn about Anangu culture here.
