Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Lasseter Highway, Uluru NT 0872, Australia

Introduction of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is inland in the southern part of the Northern Territory, about 460 km from the nearest major city, Alice Springs, about 1960 km from Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory, and 1326 km from the National Park Common World Natural and Cultural Heritage selected by the National Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (1987).

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park has dedicated airports: Ayers Rock Airport (airport code: AYQ), direct flights from Melbourne, Sydney, Alice Springs, Cairns, and expensive flights to Ayers Rock for reasons of monopoly and remoteness, with car rentals from car rental companies such as Herz and AVIS.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park consists of two parts: Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock of Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta. Uuru is the world's largest monolithic rock, known as the "red heart of Australia," while Katachuta is made of 36 dome-shaped rocks that lean against each other to form a deep and steep rock wall of the valley, and Kata Tjuta is the local language, meaning: more land. The distance between Uuru and Katachuta is about 50 km by car.

All Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park visitors and staff (including airport, resort, national park, tour guide, etc.) live in Yulara, a resort village north of Uluru, out of which hundreds of kilometers are uninhabited, as if it were a paradise.
