Depending on your experience in the Australian outback, you probably have heard about the Rock, also known as Ayer’s Rock, in Uluru. Many people have seen amazing starscapes and sunsets from one of the most scenic parts of Australia, and you can even meet the local tribe there, known as the Anangu. This depends on a lot of things, but your whole family can actually have a lot of fun visiting Uluru, and you can get the best experience by choosing the right tour to go with.
Why Shouldn’t We Drive to Uluru?
Well aside from it being more dangerous to drive there yourself, it is a very long way, and you need to expect to use a lot of gas. Depending on where you’re coming from. For example, from Sydney, it’s a 30-hour drive all the way to Ayer’s Rock. Not only that, but this is very hard on your vehicle, and probably your health and patience. You’re going to want to spend more than one day there when you get there, but if you’re completely exhausted from the drive, you’re going to miss out on a lot.
How Long is the Minimum to Stay in Uluru?
Some people have been known to visit Uluru for only one night. If you do that, you’re missing out on almost all that Uluru has to offer. It’s not like Alice Springs, which is also a popular tourist spot in Australia. Uluru is literally out in the middle of nowhere, and you’ll want to at least stay there a couple of nights and a few days.
Why do you need to stay that long at the very least you ask? Well, you can watch the sunrise and even the outback sunset out in the great wide open, visit the Kata-Tjuta, join some awesome hikes to visit the Valley of the Winds and even see the hieroglyphics from the natives, and even meet some of them. At the same time, you can have the opportunity to camp at Ayer’s Rock.
This is why flights out to Uluru are also totally not worth it. You can’t get the best seating, you don’t get to see the wonderful scenery go by, and you often don’t get the right amount of time to stay at Uluru to get the full experience. Some people have been known to only stay the night and leave. Nobody should waste their money like that, and everyone in the family deserves to have a fun time and see some things that can create the most unforgettable moments of yours and your family’s lives.
If you’re wanting the best service in your trip to Uluru, and get the most out of it, you’ll want to pick a fun Uluru tour that can be fully provided to you by the means of using special Greyhounds. You can visit all of the amazing landmarks in the region, and even have fun in a group setting that will make your trip one of a kind.
So, who should you look for when it comes to touring companies though since there’s so many out there? We’ve found that Uluru Tours The Rock Tour is the best company to provide awesome rates and have packages that last for up to 10 days even (other custom packages for longer trips may even be adjusted and created for you as well).
