What to Do in Uluru For a Day

After a ton of research, you’re absolutely certain that Uluru is one of the most breathtaking places on the planet. It might be a shame that you only have one full day to spend in Uluru, but fear not, Uluru can be experienced in a day. There are still loads of things to see and do whilst pressed for time. We’re here to help you make the most of your trip and experience the best of what Uluru has to offer!

Let’s suppose that you are arriving a day before your tour or early morning at the Ayers Rock Airport. Tour pick up is at 11:45 AM at the Ayers Rock Resort.

Amazing Places to Visit: Kata Tjuta

Also known as the Olgas, the Kata Tjuta are red rock formations that are as old as 500 million years! This spectacular site is laden with rich Aboriginal history, which makes it an even more spectacular landmark. It is at least 25km away from Uluru.

Aboriginal Cultural Centre

Experience the history and cultural narrative of the Aboriginal indigenous people of Central Australia in this wonderfully curated and informative historical tour. Here you will gain a deeper insight into Uluru and its significance to the aboriginal people.


The highlight of the trip is of course the phenomenal Uluru. If you’ve read our past blog article on why Uluru is so magical, you would understand why it remains the spiritual heart of Australia. There are two important walks that will be taken here – the Mala Walk and the Mutitjulu Waterhole.   The Mala walk is by the northwest side of the rock and showcases Anangu rock art in the midst of spectacular vertical walls.

Mutitjulu Waterhole

The Mutitjulu Waterhole is a spectacular natural wonder at the eastern side of Uluru. It is surrounded by impressive scenery amidst the backdrop of Uluru. Here, also view rock art spanning thousands of years as preserved by the Aboriginal people.

Uluru Sunset

Uluru sunset is world renowned for its beauty and how the rock changes colour as the sun sets. It is considered one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world and a definite must do whilst in Uluru. Enjoy a sunset barbecue while admiring the beauty of nature.

Field of Light Uluru

As darkness covers Uluru, 50,000 stems of light illuminate the size of more than seven football fields. This magnificent display created by artist Bruce Munro is a must see when in Uluru. For more information visit Ayers Rock Resort Website.
