Ayers Rock / Urulu

More pointers
on Ayers Rock

Varying hues

The rock's surface conspicuously changes colors as the day passes - and according to weather conditions, your distance from it, and your viewing angle. Hues include reds, oranges, yellows, and grays.


The monolith is pock-marked with small caves - see black dots on the photo above.


Ayers Rock is in the middle of Australia in the middle of nowhere. The nearest modest-sized city (Alice Springs) is nearly 500 kilometers (300 miles) away.

Nearby wonders

If you base yourself in Alice Springs, you can make sort of a loop visiting three of my Hillman Wonder medal winners in Australia:


Ayers Rock

Gold medal

Kings Canyon

Bronze Medal

The Olgas

Bronze Medal


This proximity to three medal winners enhances your Ayers Rock trip.
