Visit the Red Centre of Australia - the spiritual heartland of the continent. Uluru (Ayers Rock) is 20km and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) are 53km from Yulara township. At the Uluru Ranger Station become one with the land and experience the Liru, Mala and Kuniya Walks, conducted by National Park rangers. Uluru at sunset is a must-see and there's live entertainment on-site. Don't miss the Outback Pioneer BBQ and bar!
